When did you settle in Mumbai, when you got your first break? How did it
I got married and shifted to Mumbai for
more than a decade now, but my first break actually happened in Delhi
itself. I was in school (Gyan Bharti School, Saket), in class 9th when I
had done a serial on DD Metro, and interestingly my dramatics teacher
was also a co-writer to it, so I was chosen from school as I used to do
lead roles in dramatics.
My talent got more shape and picture when I got admission in LSR [Lady Sri Ram College]. This is around 1993-94, when we used to compete against colleges at various fests, and LSR used to have many renowned persons as Guests, I started getting offers to anchor their projects and as speaker in their telefilms.
It was given to me
and came just like a jerk.
Around the time I got married, I had a
friend who used to work with Pradeep Sarkar in Delhi, and I started
working in commercials with him. When dada [Pradeep Sarkar] shifted to
Mumbai, he was planning a feature film. By that time I was expecting my
2nd baby and I gained a lot of weight, and this is then when he
surprised me by telling not to lose weight as I was to play a role in
Parineeta. And the rest is history!
Your role as bubbly Bhabhi from Parineeta is well remembered. What is the role that is closest to your heart?
After Parineeta, I got a bonanza of roles. I did Raju Hirani's 'Lage Raho'', Rituparna Ghosh's Sunglass and so on, Do Dooni Char being the latest one. However, as you say, the first baby is always closest to the heart, so Parineeta would always have that special place with me. It was a first complete feature film for me.
You moved from films to televisions. How far was it planned? And what are the current roles that you are playing.
It just came to me. It was given to me and came just like a jerk. (Laughs) I was offered a negative female character for a Zee project, 'Rakhi'. I got amused by it because so far everybody found me too bubbly to be offered a non-positive role, and this made me thrillingly grab it. My role had a negative shade in terms of the deeds of the character which she does for the sake of her brother against everybody else.
Currently, I'm very much packed with 'Tere Liye' on Star Plus, which air at 10 pm primetime. I play the character of 'Lahoni'. The serial is based on a Bengali scene, which makes it an interesting affair for me.
