What can we say about this girl... She is one of the most versatile
actresses of the Indian television who has tried her hands in almost
everything on the small screen. From fiction shows to reality to comedy;
she can be called as a multi talented star. Even after a long tiring
day, she manages to look stunning and doesn't leave her infectious smile
In an exclusive interview with TellyBuzz, Ragini Khanna
spoke about her experiences in the industry and revealed certain things
that will make you love her more. Have a fun read…How was the journey in Star Ya Rockstar?
It was completely a learning experience wherein I learnt a lot on human relations rather than the musical learning.You were also a part of the dance reality show, Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa. Which one did you enjoy more?
I enjoyed doing both, but at the same time dance reality shows are
physically demanding and tiring. And Star Ya Rockstar
was a tragic
journey because the day before the first day of the shoot, my maasi
expired. After a week I went to London for a show after which I was down
with fever for another week. After that something else also happened.
As a whole, the entire journey was a troublesome one.Ragini, you have also made an appearance in comedy shows as well...
I had come as a guest for certain number of episodes in Comedy Circus
and I enjoyed doing the show. I realized that it is not that tough and
at the same time not a cakewalk as well, but I do not want to be tagged
as a comedian.Is there any particular reality show that you would like to try?
I was offered the coming season of Khatron Ke Khiladi
, but I could not
do it as time is something which I do not have at the moment. Also I
think a lot before taking up such shows because I cannot eat worms,
reptiles etc. But I would love to do a travel show as I love to travel.After doing a variety of reality shows, given a choice what would you choose Reality shows or Fiction?
any time because I love being a part of them. And I like doing reality
shows also but a lot of pressure comes in along with it.After
doing reality shows, do you think that you are being dragged into
controversies; be it Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa or Star Ya Rockstar?
I am an
honest person and sometimes people cannot tolerate that. I do not say
anything with the intention of hurting the opposite person, but people
get offended most of the times. Honestly I do not get affected by this,
but a perception is created in people's mind.In between, you also tried your hand in hosting shows. Did you enjoy it?
like hosting but I would like to do something like Sach Ka Saamna
has a difference in itself. Though I like doing stage shows, I do not
find it enriching and creative as such.Coming to Sasural Genda Phool, how is it living the life with Suhana?
Suhanaa…. She is a mad girl and I will also go mad one day like her (laughs). I have mended the bridge between me and Suhana.Are
you similar to her?
There are not much similarities between Suhana and
me because she is very immature and I do not think I am so. She is lazy
and sits in one place whereas I am really hardworking 24X.At
present Suhana and Ishaan (Jay Soni) are staying separately, do you miss your
family on shoot?
Yes immensely and it is kind of weird without them. Jay
and I are saath saath now with the same fight and fun. We fight like
donkeys and have fun like monkeys.Do you think that Sasural
Genda Phool gave you the real break?
If we take it on the basis of
popularity, then Sasural Genda Phool
gave the boost, but I consider Radhaa Ki Betiyaan Kuch Kar Dikhayengi
as my real start in the world of acting. And after
that the bar raised with Bhaskar Bharti
.Any Bollywood projects
I am in talks with production houses, but I am waiting for them
to make the official announcement.Is there a particular kind of
role that you would like to do?
I want to do a Pakeezah, a Pretty Woman, a
Runaway Bride and a Bridget Jone's Diary. Also I would love to do
theatre, but it needs a lot of time and that is something I don't have
at the moment.Your fans love your laugh...
Thanks a lot, I
laugh from my heart and it is always genuine. Sometimes I do not respond
to some of the jokes because I do not find it funny and also I do not
laugh at others' cost.A message to your fans who love you a
They are really sweet and post only good things about me. That is
one of the reasons why I quit twitter (laughs). They are so nice and I
love them too. But today I guess there are also some hate clubs against
me (laughs). But there is a saying, "If you love me I'll always be in
your heart, if you hate me I'll always be in your mind." So in both the
cases I am there within, so I do not mind.Reporter and Author: Saranya Valsarajan
