Sameer > What was your role in the international film (English) Ants ?
Karishma Randeva > I
played the lead role in Ants. It is about this girl who belongs to a
middle class family and her parents and she had a dream of getting her
married to an NRI. Her parents go out of the way to get her married to
a non-resident Indian. But when she reaches abroad, she realises that
her husband was already married and had a son too. She is treated like
a maid. And then she turns to prostitution to make a living. She starts
saying that actually she can make men dance to her tune. And then she
meets someone who makes her realise she was wrong. That's when she
turns back into a chaste girl, "Ganga."
Vikky > Where are you originally from and how did you get your first break?
Karishma Randeva > I
am originally from Chandigarh and I had come to Mumbai for my nephew's
first birhday. I went for a Balaji serial's audition, just for the heck
of it, and got selected.The tough part was to convince my dad to let me
stay back in Mumbai and pursue my career in this field. My first break
was as "Sonu" in Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki.
