Actress Gizele Thakral says she is very disappointed as her stint at "Bigg Boss 9" turned out to be a brief one. But she hopes to share screen space with the show's host and superstar Salman Khan, even if it's just for a single scene.

Gizele, who entered the "Bigg Boss 9" house as a wild card entry three weeks back, was on Sunday night eliminated from the show.
"The experience was amazing. I would want to stay there more, so obviously I am disappointed. I am very disappointed," she told IANS.
She says one of the reasons for her getting eliminated so soon was probably that she doesn't have fans.
"People don't know me. So, for a newcomer who looks like me because my look is very outrageous. I have big lips... for normal people to accept that kind of face is a little difficult because people initially think that I am a b***h. Maybe, to know me and to realise that I am a good girl, people need time. Also, I am not an a** l****r," said the 25-year-old.
Is Nora Fatehi, who joined the reality show along with her as a wild card entry, more entertaining than her?
"Nora is very smart. She was clear that she would have an affair with either Rishabh Sinha or Prince Narula. That was her strategy, and I am not like that. I am not a fake person," she said.
But Gizele has only kind words for her former co-contestant and "Kya Kool Hain Hum 3" co-star Mandana Karimi.
"Mandana was exactly the same what we saw from outside. She is not fake. We had a professional relationship and also did a movie together though we didn't hang out. She helped me when I got injured so, that moved me. It made me behave like a shield to her after that. I thought somehow she was the target," she said.
Though she is upset about her early departure from the show, she is looking forward to the release of her film "Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3", which will hit the screens on January 22 next year.
"When I came out and saw the movie's trailer, I got really happy. I hope the audience accepts me. I know it's a sex comedy, but I have given my 100 percent," said the actress, who wants to do more reality shows and movies.
What about working with Salman?
"I want to work with Salman also. After meeting him, I kind of admire the way he is. He is like an angel. He would come every Saturday (on the show) and sort out our differences. I would love to work with him even if it's just a scene or a song," she said.
Any wishes for the superstar who turned 50 on Sunday?
"Be the way you are. You are a living legend. I pray for your good health, prosperity, success and keep entertaining us the way you do," she said.
