TB: Shama wants to avoid image trap

Sunday, November 25, 2012 | 1:12:21 PM IST (+05:30 GMT)  



shama sikander

TV actress Shama Sikander doesn't want to get stuck with any particular image and aims to be as versatile as international artists who have the freedom to pick any role at any stage of their lives.

"Outside (abroad), actors are actors. They are not termed as TV actors or film actors. They can do any sort of role in any age. The kind of popularity and respect they get is million times more than us. In India, people like to attach a tag with each and every person," Shama said

"I will always do roles that attract me. I don't get insecure by all these things," added the actress who rose to fame with the TV show "Yeh Meri Life Hai".

After playing an ambitious middle class girl with big dreams in "Yeh Meri Life Hai", Shama is now seen in SAB TV's fantasy show "Baal Veer" in which her character has grey shades. But she is enjoying the role as her motto is do be versatile.

"It depends on how you play the character. I want to play all kinds of characters, I don't want to get stuck anywhere... bind myself in one image. I would like to experiment and that's why I chose this. Because it's a negative role, I am getting to do much more. On TV, there is not much for positive characters," she said.

With more and more reality shows and soaps crowding the small screen, her fantasy show stands a good chance to be liked by all.

"I think this is the right time because we don't have something of this genre. Fantasy always works because people never stop dreaming. Plus, right now we have nothing of this type," she said.

Shama never gets pressurised by people's expectations and says, "When people see you, they do expect something good out of you. But that is only five percent because I work for myself and my pleasure..."

Apart from TV shows, she is trying to make inroads in films and her clothes label also keeps her busy.

"I am working towards films. There are some projects in the pipeline. 15 days of my month goes there, then I have a (clothes) label so I work for that as well."

TB: TV actors warmly embrace Mumbai's winter

Thursday, December 06, 2012 | 3:37:54 PM IST (+05:30 GMT) 

Winter has set in in Mumbai, the mercury has dropped a few degrees, it's just a wee bit chilly. TV actors are thoroughly enjoying this season.

When you think of winter, the scene you instantly conjure up is of a snowy landscape, a cosy fireplace, warm woollen mittens and mugs of hot chocolate. Mumbai, the city where shooting for TV shows happen, however has a maritime climate with very mild winters. Nevertheless TV actors are making the best of Mumbai winters as it's after all a very pleasant season especially for outdoor shooting.

Shama Sikander

Winters are not too chilly in Mumbai, therefore it is very pleasant to shoot outdoors. In summer and monsoon it's difficult to step outdoors in the city. I am going for a winter vacation this year, most probably to Istanbul.

I love dressing up in this beautiful season. As winters in Mumbai are however not too cold, we can't unfortunately dress up the way people of Paris and Delhi do during winters. Nevertheless it's slightly chilly now in Mumbai so I love to wear jackets, scarves and nice leggings with boots.

My skin gets very dry in winter, it is otherwise oily. I wash my skin regularly and moisturize it too. In winter after all your body craves for fats and carbohydrates, nevertheless I try to eat calorie free food. I enjoy a cup of hot tea and coffee during winters and I also like to sip on red wine.

TOI: I got the creative bug from my maternal side: Shama Sikander

I got the creative bug from my maternal side: Shama Sikander
Shama Sikander
Actor Shama Sikander whom we are currently seeing as the 'Bhayankar Pari' in Baal Veer is a talented fashion designer. And the actress, who was on a break has created the label Saisha two years back.

"I have been completely attached with the label. Last year we were a part of the prestigious Lakme Fashion Week talent box which was a landmark for me and my label. This year also my fashion label has travelled to South Africaand we got a very good response because there isa huge market for the Indian designers inforeign countries. And it was good for my label as I wanted to capitalise on that."

Shama feels that her artistic genes have come from her mother and her late uncle. "My mother has been a huge inspiration. In my childhood most of the dresses which I wore were designed by my mom and also she used to do a lot of artistic stuff like table cloth, covers, etc. My uncle also had been a great master and was renowned - so these two persons were enough to inspire me in this field."

Sikander feels her doing something new in this line was always there in her mind but because she is the eldest in the family she wanted to establish her career first and then try for this. "After acting, there came a time when I realised I am bored doing the same things again and again and that was the time I came up with the label. I am settled with the brand now and I have a full team who will be taking care of this along with me. And when I got Baal Veer I thought this is a good time to do television again and isn't life all about multi-tasking and balancing," she adds.

TOI: Shama's creative instincts
By Swasti Chatterjee, TNN | Dec 16, 2012, 11.53 AM IST
Shama's creative instincts
Shama Sikandar
Shama Sikander has a passion for photography. She has been into photography for a long time now. She keeps a camera handy and also uses her mobile to click pictures. She loves to click whenever she gets time. She has more than thousand pictures in her collection.

These pictures are particularly close to her heart. She says,"Getting yourself clicked is as fascinating as self clicking. Among them there is a favourite. It was a nice mirror and red lip colour is my favourite. I had gone to the tourist market in Amsterdam where I took this pic. Photography is a way of life for me".

On being asked how she is feeling being the 'Bhayankar Pari' she says, "Where ever I go, people especially kids recognise me. Fan following among kids have multiplied many folds. Who doesn't like adulation?" On being asked about multi-tasking as she is also running her own fashion labelshe says, "My business is also in place as I have a dedicated team so I am able to manage my work and acting simultaneously."

TV actress Shama Sikander features with her American beau Alexx O'Nell in a sensuous video of a song, composed by the latter. Shama says she is not bothered about what people will say of the video.

"You can't stop the world from judging you. I have never been bothered by all this. We have tried our best to make the song look as beautiful as we could. It is pure art and I am sure people will love it. In case they don't, I can't do anything about it," Shama told IANS.

The track, "Still on my mind", is about a man remembering his lost love. The video has been shot in slow motion, giving it a dreamy feel.

"The slow motion has added to the beauty, serene and calm nature of the song, making it even better," said Shama, who has been seeing Alexx, actress Sweta Keswani's former husband, since the past two years.

Shama also added that the song is full of passion and, therefore, sensuality had to be an important part of it.

"It is an international video and, therefore, had to be sensuous. Sensuality is a must. Plus, the story is about lost love and a man needs to have a lot of passion to be able to emote those feelings. It is very graceful and there is nothing vulgar in it at all," she said.

Will Shama and Alexx continue releasing music videos together now?

"We will see the response and decide. But yes, this song has given me a lot of confidence. I would definitely like to try more of this," she said.

The song will release next month.

Meanwhile, Shama, who carved a niche for herself in the TV industry with hit show "Yeh Meri Life Hai", is currently seen as a grey character in "Baal Veer". She says she was hesitant about how children would react to her character, but they seem to be loving it.
