" I can't resist sweets " : Jennifer Winget



Jennifer Winget, who plays Ganga in Sangam, shares her food habits and her favourite recipe. She is an absolute foodie, as she cheerfully admits.

Are you a complete foodie or do you watch what you eat?
I am a complete foodie. I have never deprived myself of anything. I realize and feel guilty only after eating.

Your favorite cuisine 'Continental/Oriental/Indian/ anything else.

Home-made food, or order in?
That depends, but on a regular basis I would prefer home made food.

Vegetarian or non-vegetarian?
I am not a strict vegetarian but I would prefer vegetarian food over non-vegetarian.

Drink you like to gulp along with your food?
I don't drink anything while having food.

Your favorite beverage?
Lemon iced tea.

Any alcoholic beverage in your list of favourites?
I only like red wine, especially Australian wine.

What about junk food?
I am an absolute junkie, burgers, pizzas, you name it...

Your favorite fast food joint?
Subway and McDonald's.

Favorite restaurant/ eating joint?
Peshawari at ITC.

Your take on diet and health food?
I am not the right person to comment on this because I personally don't follow any rules. But one should work out - it's very important to shed those extra calories from your body, especially for actors.

Which would be that one dish you find irresistible?
I can't resist sweets. That's my weakness.

I am taking part in Zara Nachke Dikha to get rid of my stage fear :     Jennifer Winget


It's a open heart conversation with Jyothi Venkatesh that Jennifer Winget touches various issues such as the show Zara Nachke Dikha, her fear of stage performance, Ganga in Sangam and above all her indomitable intention to act in films'

What exactly is Zara Nachke Dikha?
From a 10 year old boy to a 65 year old woman, across professions and in every corner of the country, both the genders have always wondered which the greater sex is after all. It is an attempt on the part of Star One to solve the debate on the gender war and is a battle of the sexes on the dance floor. The show will be telecast twice a week with eight boys and eight girls - all celebrities from the television industry who will be pitted against each other to prove their dancing mettle and hence superiority gender-wise, as a team. The best part of the show is that only the jury decides the winning team of the episode every week.

Is Zara Nachke Dikha your first attempt at taking part in a reality show?
Yes. It is for the first time that I am taking part in a reality show like Zara Nachke Dikha on Star One. Though I think I have managed to learn acting to a large extent ever since I had made my debut as an actress, I am aware of the bitter truth that I am not a trained dancer and hence I wanted to hone up my dancing talent and I thought by taking part in the show, I will get a chance to automatically learn the various intricate dancing steps. At the same time I also wanted to get rid of my stage fright.

Shows besides Zara Nachke Dikha you are associated with'
Right now the only show in which I am acting besides Zara Nachke Dikha is Sangam which is on air on Star Plus. I have been teamed opposite Chaitanya Chowdhury in the show, which is going great guns.

How do you manage to strike a balance between your serial Sangam as well as the reality show Zara Nachke Dikha?
I am thankful to Fox, the producers of my show Sangam, that they have let not only me but Chaitanya also to take time off to take part in the rehearsals for the reality show.

What is your role in the serial Sangam?
I play the role of Ganga, a sweet and bubbly girl who makes the transition from being an innocent village girl to a mature lady, thanks to the circumstances in which she finds herself in her journey in life and the trials and tribulations that she faces in her life, because she goes through a lot of muck.

How do you relate your reel life character Ganga with that of your real life?
When we started a year and a half ago, I could relate to Ganga when she was a sweet and bubbly and carefree young girl because I, too, was the same then. Now I am able to relate to the mature character of Ganga because like in reel life, there is thehrao in my real life, too, since, I, too, have matured like Ganga has in the show.

Would you say that your journey in life is similar to that of Ganga?
As far as emotion and growth are concerned, I can say that I relate to Ganga's journey in life somewhere, though I do not think I am as sweet as Ganga.

How challenging is your role as Ganga in Sangam?
It is quite a challenging role, because crying with emotions is not an easy task, since it is not every day that you cry as well as emote at the same time. There are few scenes that exhaust me completely and make me really break down on the sets.

Is Sangam your first TV serial as an actress?
It was with the serial Shakalaka Boom Boom that I debuted as an actress. I know Maninee De who is taking part in the reality show Zara Nachke Dikha from the time we were working together in Shakalaka, though I have met Delnaz and Narayani now only. I know others including Karishma Tanna who had acted with me in Koyi Dil Mein Hai.

Which are the other serials you have acted in earlier?
I have been a regular as far as Balaji Telefilms is concerned and learnt a lot with my association with Ekta Kapoor. I have acted in her serials like Kasauti Zindagi Ki, Kusum, Nimmo, Koyi Dil Mein Hai as well as Kartika.

Tell me about your beginning as a child star.
It was with the film Raja Ko Rani Se Pyaar Ho Gaya that I had made my debut as a child actor way back when I was just a twelve year old kid. The acting bug bit me since my mother has been working for the last several years, with producer R. Mohan who was making films under the banner of Good Night Films.

If I am not mistaken, you have already made your debut in films!
Yes. I had made my debut in films with Kuch Na Kaho as the younger sister of Abhishek Bachchan. Even now I am open for acting in films that come my way but I want to go a step ahead. I do not however want to take up roles as either a sister or a friend any more, because thankfully I have grown out of it after doing Kuch Na Kaho.

How comfortable will you be as far as exposing in films considering there is hardly any need for you to expose in Sangam?
In real life, I can comfortably carry off both western as well as Indian costumes. I am comfortable wearing skirts as well as saris. As far as exposure in films is concerned, all that I would like to say is that as long as one is comfortable with what one is wearing, I do not think should have any problem whatsoever.

You are not a trained actress. Where did you learn acting?
To tell you the truth, the television industry has been my training ground as far as acting is concerned. TV has taught me a lot since the time I had made my debut with Shakalaka. Though I think that I have to learn a lot, I feel that I have had an immense growth as an actor. When I look back at the beginning of my career, I feel that today I can do any kind of scene, be it an emotional scene or a comic one.

What is your approach to acting?
Though I have always believed that spontaneity plays a very vital role for any actress, I also feel that preparation is equally necessary to bring out the best in you as an actor. I feel that on the spot emotion when you perform on the sets without preparation affects the audience because it comes from within you.

Why do you maintain a very low profile when other actresses flaunt their latest scandals or boast about their latest cars?
I have always believed in keeping certain things private in my life, because whatever I do, people will come to know eventually for the simple reason that I am a public figure since I am acting in a popular serial.

Which among your roles has been very close to you till date?
I would not hesitate to mention that my roles in both Kasauti Zindagi Ki and Sangam have been and will always remain very close to my heart, because both Sneha and Ganga have been diverse as well as rich characters, which have taught me a hell of a lot as an actor. I think I owe whatever success that I have achieved till date to these two characters.

Jennifer Winget on Sangam ending..

The lead girl of Sangam has taken the channel's decision of ending the show in her stride. Here is she talking on her two year journey..

Jennifer Winget has taken Star Plus decision to end her lead show Sangam in her stride. "All good things must come to an end. The last episode will air on 6th March" she says. The show would end with the Sangam of Ganga and Sagar. "I am so glad that they finally meet for I was only running around in the show", quips the actress.

She refused to comment on the lack of publicity on part of the channel for Sangam. "They are better equipped to take a decision on these things. More than anything I will miss the entire unit of Sangam. We all had a blast working on this Fox project for the last 2 years", avers she.

Jennifer feels that the best part of Sangam was its simple story. "Many small town girls could identify with Ganga. We did not have unnecessary drama, yes there were twists and turns, but those were an essential part of the narrative". At the end of it, the actress is glad that the show always had its own fair share of loyal viewers.

After Sangam, the girl now wants to take a breather. "I have been working non stop for five years now, with Kasauti first and then Sangam. But in the future if something interesting comes along, especially in the comedy genre, I would be ready to grab it", states Jennifer.

In closing, Jennifer wanted to thank all her fans on India-Forums for all their love and support. "I promise them that I will soon be back in a new avatar"

Jennifer Winget

The love story of Saagar and Ganga in Star Plus' Sangam has taken the same route traversed by many a lovers in the past; the love birds find themselves away from each other, and with more hurdles to cross before they ultimately meet, the viewers are in for some testing times as well.

Will Saagar and Ganga unite in the near future? Let us get some insight on the future track from the pretty damsel Jennifer Winget, who plays Ganga. It's really sad that Saagar and Ganga are separated. "I know, but all has happened for a particular reason", says Jennifer in a comforting tone. What is in store for Ganga now? "Ganga will get mature, bold and more subtle in this phase. With Kaveri and Khurana helping out, Ganga will get independent, and she will proceed towards fulfilling her father's dream of opening the school."

Will Saagar and Ganga meet in the near future? "Saagar assumes that his love, Ganga is dead. Ganga feels that Saagar has betrayed her. Saagar is surely an integral part of Ganga's memory, but they will not meet soon. There will be many hit-and-miss incidents, but they both will not come face to face. The viewers need to wait longer for Saagar and Ganga's union", says the actress. "Par Ganga Saagar se milegi zaroor", says Jennifer to lift up the spirits of her fans..
