Ravi Ojha's much awaited show which will hit your screens from tomorrow is going to mark the comeback of the beautiful Sanjeeda Shaikh after Sahara One's Piya Ka Ghar Pyara Lage. The actress will be seen essaying the character of Meera in the show who is in search of something. We spoke to Sanjeeda about her character in the show, her career and much more.
When asked about the character and the reason for taking up the show, Sanjeeda says, "Meera looks sensible but she is not. She is a very soft hearted, emotional and a little bit insecure girl. In fact, she actually comes in search of something. I am really liking my new look because it feels as if I am coming from my home directly in the same clothes. At this stage of my career, it is important for me to work with good people and this is a character which I have never played before. I have heard a lot about Ravi Ojha Productions who made a brilliant show like Sasural Genda Phool and I am extremely happy to work with such a brilliant maker. The character sounded very interesting, the channel is good and the production is outstanding. This is all what lead me to take up the show. Another reason why I took up the show was that, I was working for Sahara since the past 2 years and they have been very good and respected me. I loved working with them. I used to shoot only for 15 days and the rest of the time was for my family. Now I thought it is time for me to do some hard work and no one gets such opportunities again and again".
She further added, "I think I was destined to do the show and being a positive girl, I love working in a positive atmosphere with positive people. I am very happy and proud of myself because whatever I have achieved is due to the hard work that I have myself put in. I think this show will do justice creatively. It's a hard core family drama."
About her buddy relation she shares with Additi, Sanjeeda added, "I have done Zara Nach Ke Dikha with Additi where we were together rehearsing for 4 months. So, I know her very well. I was happy when she was cast for Badalte Rishton Ki Daastan. We are actually like hero-heroine for each other (laughs). We have to do a lot of scenes together. If two actors have a good rapport, then the chemistry will eventually come out very beautifully on-screen."
So, how is it working for the show? Sanjeeda says, "They are working really hard on my wardrobe and I was taken to different brands and selected everything myself. The scenes are very well written and I can feel the pain of Meera. Our director Rakesh Kumar is brilliant. As a director he knows how much effort an actor can put in his/her work. This kind of rapport is very necessary."
Any plans to be a part of movies? "Right now I am very happy doing some great projects on TV. You need to be lucky to get into movies and then hard work follows. It's my dream job to be an assistant director", says Sanjeeda.
