How has the journey been for you so far?
It has been a long journey for me with ups and downs. But I am very happy the way things have turned out to be. I am very thankful to Balaji Telefilms for having faith in me and for giving me a chance to prove myself. I am also thankful to STAR for all the support. They have been there through all these years.
Did you always wanted to be an actor?
I had never planned to be an actor. It happened by chance although it was my choice because if you don't desire something, you won't be able to do it obviously. So yes, I chose to be an actor when I got an opportunity.
According to you, which roles have been the most important roles in your career?
Definitely Kahe Naa Kahe as it was my first. My characters in Kis Desh Mein Hai Meraa Dil and Kya Dill Mein Hai have also been significant in my career. And now, my character Jeevika in Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hai has been getting praises.
Now, you're doing a lead but earlier you had done second leads. How have they been different for you?
If you are playing a lead character in any serial, the whole show is about you. Your character ends only when the show ends. Second leads keep changing all the time. So it feels wonderful to be a lead in a prime time show on such a popular channel.
Is it a big deal to get a lead on prime time?
Yes, it is. Playing a lead in any show even if it isn't a prime time is a big deal. The entire show runs around you. You are the star of the show. You get all the attention and importance. So why shouldn't it be a big deal for anyone?
What do you think of your co-actors such as Neha, Karan Tacker and Seema Kapoor?
Neha is like a kid. She is cute and I am always treating her like my younger sister. I keep telling her what to do and what not to do. She is very adorable and sweet. I find Karan to be very sweet and a fun person to be with. We are always joking around. About Seemaji, honestly speaking when I first saw her I was scared of her. But as we worked together and slowly got to know each other, we became friends. I feel blessed to have such co-actors and for the love I have been getting.
What's happening in your personal life? Any potential love interest?
Nah, nothing has been happening. All that has been happening is I wake up early morning, come to the sets, finish the shoot and go back home. It's the same every day. I am a very boring person
Do you plan to make it interesting in future?
Certainly not. I don't have any time to make any plans. If the future holds something for me, we will see. But for now, I am only concentrating on my professional life.
