Risk taking is must for Ragini Khanna who doesn't like to just align herself with run-of-the-mill patterns on the small screen and prefers to work with innovative people.
"I like to try risky things. This is how my personality is," Ragini told IANS.
Ragini played Suhana, a spoiled brat who gets married to a middle-class boy and how she adjusts to the new life and joint family culture.
She says it was a risk to play the character as it had grey shades and also because as a channel, Star Plus is known for churning out perfect daughters-in-law like Tulsi (Smriti Irani) and Parvati (Sakshi Tanwar).
For "Sasural Genda Phool", "the time slot was of 7.30 p.m., which is considered as a dead time slot. Plus my character was unconventional on a channel known to be the epitome of great bahus", said the actress who hit the bull's eye with the show, which turned out to be hugely popular.
Before that she featured in "Radhaa Ki Betiyaan Kuch Kar Dikhayengi" and "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa" among others.
Her big screen tryst was with PVR Pictures Distributors and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra Pictures 2011 co-production "Teen Thay Bhai".
Latest on Ragini's list is "Welcome: Baazi Mehmaan Nawaazi ki", in which she will be seen hosting and attending dinner parties for celebrities and says it will pull her out of her comfort zone in real life.
"I am an extremely moody cook and I have never really prepared a meal for so many people. I don't cook daily. Sometimes, on Sundays, I decide to cook for my family. So I needed a show like this to make me come out of my comfort zone," she said.
She has another show in the pipeline. "I do have one show. It has a great concept and is experimental in nature."
What's her dream role?
"I would love to play a role like 'Pakeezah'. The death and pathos associated with the role attracts me," she said.
