Ragini Khanna is the name which makes us remember the
Bhaskar/Bharati - the serial which aired on Sony TV and closed shop
quite prematurely. The girl who has made her place in every one's heart
be it as Bhaskar, Bharati or else as Suhana of 'Sasural Genda Phool', is
feeling very lucky to have bagged such different and off-beat roles at
the beginning of career. TellyCafe's Tejashree Bhopatkar caught up with
Ragini in between shoots and had a nice chit chat about acting, life,
How is Ragini in real life apart from her
Ragini is a very mature, responsible
person who likes to take her own decisions as she thinks that she is
grown up enough to do so. She is the kind of person who has a lot of
patience and is independent. (Chuckles) She is also a cleanliness freak!
I don't know why but I don't like dirty places, rooms, or anything
around me. Everything has to be neat and clean.
acting as a career and not anything else?
just came out. I thought why not… let me try. Actually, I have always
taken part in school competitions like dancing, acting, singing, every
cultural activity, and acting pleased me more so… acting.
were your school years... any memorable moments?
in school I was a geek, with two pony tails, pet of all the teachers. In
short a good student. In fact, I got only one remark in all of my life;
that Ragini is a bright student. But on other hand, I used to take part
in all the annual functions and that is where I got addicted to acting.
I once essayed the role of Snow White's step mother, who is very
cunning, and for some reason I loved playing that part. It's been my
favourite so far.
How was your college life?
was an outstanding student who always stood out of the class (laughs).
No, no, not at all. I was bright enough in college too, but then after
classes was a different story. I used to roam around the neighborhood
and reach home in the evening. And as I am Bollywood freak, I used to
watch at least one movie a day or sometimes if there are two releases
then two movies at a stretch.
How was your television
journey so far?
Fantastic! And I think it's just the
beginning and I've got a long way to go. I've learned a lot of things on
the sets itself and the shows that I've done so far have made me
responsible and knowlegeable about so many things... I've learned how to
handle personal relationships while juggling professional
relationships, how not to let anything get in the way of my
professionalism, the fact that I'll never stop learning life lessons for
as long as I am in this business.
What is/was more
difficult to portray: Bhaskar or Suhana?
I guess they
are both equally challenging. As, while essaying Bharti it was difficult
to be a man and while essaying Suhana it is difficult to behave like a
girl. They both are mental characters.
How is your
journey going on with Sasural Genda Phool?
is very mad character, she throws lots of tantrums and does lot of
hungama. There are certain things which I have learned through her. But
all said and done, the entire journey is cool and going quite well.
you feel that you are settled in your life yet? Any plans to marry
No way! This is just the beginning and I have a
long way to go from where I am today. As for marriage, I am just 23 now
so... there's still time.
Any message to your fans?
you all for giving lots and lots of love to my characters. All your
suggestions are always welcomed and I will always strive to entertain
you with different characters and acting. Thanks a lot.
