Tell us your journey in weaving the success story from big screens to every household’s TV screens.
The journey has been fun. Through each role that I have played, there were things to learn and unlearn and I am grateful for everything that came my way. I started my journey in the modeling industry. They say when your intentions are right and you’re ready to put all your efforts into what you want you will get that! That’s how my door to acting opened in the south Indian film industry. Having done a few films there I really wanted to explore the television industry so when an exciting opportunity knocked on my door, I am glad I didn’t turn it down. I love my work and I love how people are enjoying it as well, the pure satisfaction of being able to do what you love is a blessing in itself. It was 2013 when I made my debut in Hindi telly town as Dr. Sonakshi Bose Dixit in Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi. The show really played a turning point in my life, it turned out to be a great success and the experience of working with amazing co-stars made it wonderful in all ways. Playing Prerna Sharma Basu in Kasautii Zindagii Kay was also an equally exciting role that was much loved by the audience and I believe if you are ready to put forth your best then weaving a success story is what all of us can ace.
Having played various roles in the South-Indian film industry as well, how was the experience different from Tv?
All experiences are equally special and valuable to me. Everything has its own share of making me who I am today. But to me it’s not about the big screen or TV screen, it’s about acting. I am passionate about this talent of mine and I am grateful for the various opportunities that came my way which aided me to explore, learn and mold myself. The south Indian film industry was my initial door to acting but I must admit it was pretty difficult to manage the language. I entered the telly world purely with an interest to explore and I really love it here. The whole idea that you don’t have to wait for a year or so to see your performance on screen excites me.
