Who's the hottest actor according to you on TV?
Dear Reena, I find Hussain and Ronit Roy quite attractive
I want to know which is your favorite serial and what kind of roles do you want to do?
Dear Amna, I love doing Sarabhai v/s Sarabhai, it's a great show to be a part of. As for the kind of roles I would like to do and am open to anything that excites me. I don't take up any role unless I am totally convinced about it.
Between Gayatri and Monisha, which roles do you like the most?
Dear Mahvish, I love both of them, but Monisha is very close to my heart. I don't have to try and act like Monisha, cause she's exactly how I am in real life.
What kind of films would you do if offered?
— Aarshi Rajpal
Dear Asrshi, I would love to do a film like Kora Kagaaz directed by my dad Anil Ganguly. Also I am very inspired by Nargisji, I would love to do a Mother India if offered.
Which role on TV would you like to do, other than you own
— Anjali Singh
Dear Anjali, I think I would like to play Parvati in Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii
Of all your roles on TV, which character did you enjoy playing the most?
— Joanne Deo
Dear Joanne, I personally have a great time playing Monika in Sarabhai
Who has been your favourite co-star?
— Gitanjali Sharma
Dear Gitanjali, I have a blast with my entire Sarabhai team. In fact we are like one big family, and you have to come on the sets to witness the chemistry between us. Working with Satishji and Ratnaji is like attending an acting school. There's so much to learn from them, as they both are great at what they do.
You have had to slap a couple of actors in your scenes, how do you handle it?
— Tuna Mushran
Dear Tuna, I am the one who gets slapped all the time. I hardly have a scene where I get to slap some one. The only person I have slapped on a show is Tina Parakh.
Is it true that you are dating someone and are all set to marry him?
Dear Misha, I wish it were true. But all these rumors are complete rubbish. I have no time as of now to get married, forget dating. Also I have always been a good sister, a good agony aunt to guys, but when it came to actually dating, they just chicken out. So I am still finding that someone who's interested in me. Currently, I am focusing on work and making the most of the roles given to me.
What is the motto of your life and how were your struggling days
Dear Mousmi, I have gone through times when I had no work. I did screen tests and got rejected. But I never gave up hope and always believed in myself. Never ever give up on your dreams.
Is it difficult crying in scenes all the time?
Dear Amit, Once you learn to differentiate between your real personality and the character you play it becomes easy. It's all about switching on and off. In fact there are lot of times in Kahaani when I have to cry and I end up laughing because of something happening in the background. I have to be controlled when it comes to laughing. Also I am an actual crybaby in real life, so tears come easy to me.
