|Shikha Swaroop returns in Chandrakanta|
|Television actress Shikha Swaroop, who last appeared in and as Chandrakanta on Doordarshan, made a comeback with the sequel of the show called Kahani Chandrakanta Ki on Sahara One. She talks about her hiatus, her return and the show that brought her back on telly.|
|Where did you disappear for so long?|
Post Chandrakanta, I did some films Gulshan Kumar's Naagmani, Anil Sharma's Tehelka and even few television shows. But then I wanted a break and I went Delhi -away from acting and the glamour world. I wanted to replinsh my soul so I read a lot of spiritual books, learnt yoga and eve Reiki. Not working for a while was therapeutic and wonderful.
|You did Chandrakanta 15 years ago so what difference do you find in the experience then and now?|
Fifteen years is really a long time yet I don't feel much difference frankly. Working on a set, shooting, playing a character is as exciting today as it was back then. There has of course been a whole lot of improvement in technology for sure including post production, graphics, styling and a lot more.
|How different is Kahani Chandrakanta Ki from the previous one?|
The story is in continuation of Chandrakanta, yes you can say a sequel. Kahani Chandrakanta Ki, unlike Chandrakanta, is inspired from the book Chandrakanta Saniti. This time Chandrakanta has become powerful as she is not a princess anymore but a queen. She rules a huge kingdom and is more experienced in life. She is the decision maker, which will be interesting to watch out
|Where have you shot for the serial?|
We are shooting in Panvel, Mahableshwar, Gujarat and several other locations. The palaces, the horses etc., everything are real. Our producers like to be as authentic as possible and for such a concept outdoor shooting is a must.
|Will we see you in more shows or films?|
I have just made my comeback on television. I am starting my new innings, so let's see how things work out and where life takes me.
Inder Kumar will be seen playing a renowned actor in the upcoming ...
The track of the episode will be based on the upcoming film Oh My God 4
