Actress Pariva Pranati, who made her Bollywood debut with Reema Kagti's "Talaash", says she will not leave television for films, because this is where she had started her acting career.
"Television was where I started and I will not leave it as I have entered Bollywood. But I have always tried to do different work. Even on television, I have always done different type of shows and if TV offers me something different, I will do it," Pariva told IANS.
Pariva has been a part of shows like "Armanon ka Balidaan-Aarakshan", "Hamari Betiyoon Ka Vivaah" and "Tujhko Hai Salaam Zindgi". She was recently seen as Sushila in Star Plus' show "Ek Doosre Se Karte Hain Pyaar Hum".
Ask about her experience on the sets of "Talaash", Pariva had nothing but praises for director Reema Kagti and co-star Aamir Khan.
"I was not nervous while shooting, because at the end of the day, you are acting with another actor. Reema is such a warm person. A lot depends on how a director treats an actor. Aamir is so grounded, I never felt I was working with a superstar," the 26-year-old said.
Pariva reveals she had no plans, but entered the world of acting, thinking it was different.
"I had no plans of entering acting. It just happened because I like to do different things. For me acting should be challenging, then I enjoy doing it," she said.
After having worked in both television and Bollywood, the actress finds working in films easier.
"I was playing the role of a wife, who lost her husband and there for that I had to cry a lot, something which I do everyday on television. TV has long hours and many high intensity scenes are done in one day. Here (in 'Talaash') if there were 2-3 high intensity scenes, only one was done in a day," she said.
Pariva plans to take a break for a month and will get back to work in 2013.
