Actress Shama Sikander, who became a known face on small screen with her bubbly character of Pooja in 2005 show "Yeh Meri Life Hai", describes television as an institution and says the medium makes you a better artist.

"To be honest, if you are a television actor, film is like a cakewalk for you. Television is very difficult, but it teaches you a lot. If one shoots one scene in a day for a film, we shoot 10-12 scenes in a day for a TV show. So, it make you very fast. It is the best institution," said Shama who had a pivotal role in "Prem Aggan" (1998) and also featured in 1999 releaes "Mann".

The 31-year-old, who belongs to Makrana, Rajasthan, is returning on small screen as an evil fairy in the new show "Baal Veer". She is happy to play a negative role in the SAB TV's show.

"I have always got roles where I have been a nice person. So, I wanted to explore my dark side...It's sort of a self-knowing process for me," she added.

Shooting for the role was tough as it requires flying in the air with heavy costumes.

"My costume is very heavy. It's 20-25 kgs heavy, but it makes me look stunning," said Shama who was also seen in fantasy show "Seven".

Although she had her share of struggle, but she is glad that she could make a name for herself on her own.

"It feels great. I have had a tough time...had my share of pain and misery. But at the same time there is a lot of contentment because I did it on my own," Shama told IANS.

"And they respect my work. It gives me a lot of joy that I have been able to create a brand name for myself. As an actor, it is very challenging because it is a great thing to do," added the actress
