The extra 'd' in Additi Gupta's name invites curiosity enough to ask her the reason for it.

This newcomer, an Ekta Kapoor find, was asked by the daily soap queen to add that extra 'd' to her spelling to bring luck to her serial.

"It was decided for numerological purposes. I didn't mind changing the spelling of my name. Ekta ma'am is very nice to me. She teaches me a lot of things and she narrates everything well," says Additi.

This young girl makes her debut opposite Harshad Chopra in Kis Desh Mein Hain Meraa Dil. Does she identify with the role she plays? "I am simple and not very loud like Heer in the serial. But I am entirely different when it comes to her attitude. I am not a salwar kameez girl at all and I don't completely obey my parents," she smiles.

This erstwhile aspiring fashion designing student had never thought of acting as a career option. She says, "I come from Bhopal and was doing a fashion designing course in Pune. That was when Balaji Productions had an audition in Pune and my friends insisted I go for it. I always had stage fright, but I like to dance and am more of a sports person. I got selected and I still think that is a very good break to have started with such a big serial and a great production house." So, will fashion designing now be an alternate career?

"I was having fun doing the course and fashion designing was as interesting as acting. I have taken a break for a year and will go back to studies but it may take a while given to my busy schedule."

Considering hectic schedules take a toll on the health and lives of actors, is Additi on the way to joining the brigade? "I am quite sleep deprived right now but it's not that hectic. I think it's pretty manageable." We tell Additi that the television industry is brimming with starry-eyed youngsters, who leave academics midway to pursue their glam dreams, and she says, "That's because the roles demand fresh faces. Also, time is an important factor. Senior actors can't afford to give that much time to the serials."

This pretty girl believes that it's high time the television industry got a revamp. "The audience really needs a change. People watch TV for entertainment and need to get out of the saas-bahu tracks. But these serials are popular and we have to give them what they want," she says.

Besides improving on her acting, Additi likes to travel for promotions. "I like to travel for promoting my serial. It feels nice to explore new cities and take a break once in a while," she signs off.
