gave the television industry a talented actress Priyanka Bassi
who captured the hearts of a million young boys as well as girls with
her bold and revengeful character, Naina. After a long break she is all
charged up and is now sizzling being Sam in Yash Patnaik and Swapna
Waghmare Joshi's popular show Rang Badalti Odhani
on Star One
But how does she feel now with the girl next door image in the show..
Priyanka speaks to Tellybuzz!!! You are back in television after a long break, what were you engaged with?
speaking, I had other plans in mind to grow myself and I pursued my
Kathak classes and also did my Yoga sessions for recreation. I travelled
a lot and had lots of plans for my career, but somehow did not work
well. Finally I promised myself that I will do the first show that I get
apppoached for..What was the most struggling part in your life?
hasn't been a struggle as such because I had been into the field of
acting very early I and I did the show called Bombay Talking after which
I was offered various shows. The journey has been a beautiful one for
me and I always believed in good and happiness and evolved as a much
better individual.What are the changes that you felt after this break?
I have seen a lot of changes with a variety of new shows with a good mix of drama. Today SAB TV
has gone all comedy, Colors has become more serious and rural oriented,and Star One
is youth oriented where there is a good scope of opportunities. Now that I am back, the response is also good.What have you learnt so far in the industry?
This industry is a beautiful place to be in and I have a lot of faith and dreams attached to it. What was the reason you took up Rang Badalti Odhani?
I had said earlier, I had promised myself that I will take the first
project that comes across me and Odhani was the one to do that and I
took it up. Everything happened all of a sudden where I saw myself
shooting the third day after a meeting for the show.Naina was a character with a Tomboyish look and attitude whereas Sam is a complete girl; how do you feel to portray both?
Sam and Naina are both bubbly and lively in their own way. But
personally I do not think that I could climb trees and run like Naina.
But when I am doing a character, I just close my eyes and tell that you
are Naina and you are going to do the stuffs. Speaking about Sam, till
date I never got to sync myself into the character because the show is a
multi-cast and the new characters and still fresh. Sam is a completely musical character; how are you in music?
Priyanka enjoys music and loves to listen to Ghazals but at the same time I am not at all instrumental.What are the challenges that you felt while doing Sam in Rang Badalti Odhani?
didn't feel portraying Sam is a challenge because somewhere everybody
could relate to the character. The girl is a normal girl who is like a
girl next door. Who are close to you in Rang Badalti Odhani?
Almost everybody, because all are there in most of the scenes and its great together.How is your rapport with the costars in Rang Badalti Odhani?
rapport is really good and it's great to be on the sets. It is always
fun where people play pranks on others and I remember one played on me.
The whole crew asked me to enter a dark room and stay there for a long
time which eventually made me cry. I think Manish Raisinghani
a is one of the biggest pranksters on the sets.Can you tell something about your background?
am basically from Delhi wherein I started my acting at a very young age
of 19 when I did Bombay Calling. I was always into extracurricular
activities and art since I was in school and acting was always a part of
me. I started off with theatre after my diploma and later did Kathak.Your dream role?
Priyanka would love to carve a dream role that others would love to play (smiles).
