...says Sparsh Khanchandani after rising to fame as chhoti Ichcha in a chat with Neha Maheshwri
After playing the role of poverty-stricken Ichcha in Uttaran, one
expected little Sparsh Khanchandani to do similar roles. But she chose a
family drama titled Parvarrish - Kuchh Khatti kuchh Meethi on Sony TV,
which features a crowd of kids instead.
And guess what? She's
glad to play the role of Rashi in the show as it not only allows her to
be her real self but also accommodates her school-timings and other
extra curricular activities. It enables her to strike a perfect balance
between work, fun and studies. But another reason why Sparsh is
particularly thrilled about this role is that she gets to wear the
choicest of dresses especially western outfits.
"While I was playing Ichcha, my clothes were always shabby because the
character was born in a poor family. There were times when people used
to think that I am actually as poor as Ichcha in real life too. I also
did a Hollywood movie, Meena - Half The Sky, which again had me don a
similar getup as Ichcha's. That's when I told my parents that I don't
want to play a poor kid again and luckily Rashi's role was offered to
me. The first thought that struck me was 'Chalo, I will get to wear good
clothes'." Ask her if she has taken any acting lessons, pat comes the
reply, "How can one learn acting? Doesn't it come naturally?" Perfecting
the art at an early age!
