Sheetal Dabholkar who rose to fame after playing the elder Sanyogita in Prithvi Raj Chauhan and now is seen in the character of Meghna in Shashi Sumeet Mittal's Dil Ki Nazar Se Khoobsoorat, shares more about her professional and personal life with Tellybuzz…

How did Khoobsurat happen to you?

I got a call from the production house for Khoobsurat. My name was recommended by the channel. They must have seen my previous auditions or the videos of my work. Then, I was called for the look test after which I signed the contract.  My character is very strong and it is a parallel lead of sorts. The story is based on the famous tale of Beauty and The Beast and is very beautiful and classy. My character is more like a friend for her sister and mom. Meghna always supports, guides and takes care of her sister.  

How was your first day on the sets?

First day, I was called at 10:30 in the night on the sets. I was told that I have only one scene to do. So, I went there and waited till 2 am but the shoot didn't happen. I was called once again after a couple of days. That was my actual first day of shoot and it was very nice. I was called at 8:30 am in the morning and the shoot began with my introductory scene, where Aradhya (Soumya Seth) comes in and I was sitting and asking about the portrait. That was my introduction scene. I gelled well with all of them. The directors and the co-actors are very nice and we all bonded easily. I was very comfortable shooting.

With whom do you bond the best on the sets?

We are only 4 in our on-screen family. Aradhya, me, mom and dad. Everyone is very good. I share a good bond with all of them but the best relation I share with is my on-screen mom. We sit together in our make-up rooms for long.  

Can you relate to Meghna?

Yes, very much. Meghna and I are fun loving people. She likes to learn new things; sometimes, she wants to learn jewellery designing and at the others she wants to cook. Her choices of trying out new things keep changing and in fact mine is a similar case. Sometimes, I like to learn belly dancing and sometimes I want to try gymnastics, just like Meghna. I have a younger brother and I support him like the way Meghna does for her sister.

You have got to play different characters. So, which among these is the closest to your heart?

All the characters played by me are very close to my heart but the character of Sanyogita played by me in Prithviraj Chauhan will always be the closest because I got to learn many things from it. I did everything right from horse riding to sword fighting. I love the character of Sanyogita very much and it will always be closest to my heart.

What interests you other than acting?

I love dancing very much. I want to learn belly dancing as I am very fond of Shakira. I keep inquiring about Belly dancing training as I want to learn it but my timing never matches. We play music in our make-up room and dance.

How is Sheetal in her real life?

I am fun loving and extrovert. People say that I seem to be an aakhdu in the first meet but once they know more about me, they find me very kind and down to earth. I love helping people. Even if I see some fight on the street, I go there and solve the problem. It doesn't bother me that I am a girl and I should not get involved. I don't easily gel with people. I like hanging out with friends. I am fond of traveling and eating as I am a big foodie.

You gained immense popularity after playing elder Sanyogita in Prithviraj Chauhan. Any sweet memories related to those days that you would like to share with us?

Whenever, I used to have my scenes with my dad, mom, and my friend Vaishali, we used to do a lot of masti on the sets. We never would shoot together daily but whenever we got a chance, then everyone would know the fact that the set will be a riot that day. We actually danced and did mimicry too. We even cherish those moments when we meet today. That time also, we used to dance on item numbers in our make-up room. (laughs).

Do looks matter according to you?
Looks don't matter according to me. I believe that the heart should be very clean. One should be very honest.

Who are your 4 am friends from the industry?

I have very few of them. My husband Randeep Mahadik who is a director and who has directed shows like Bairi Piya, Tere Liye, etc. is my best friend. He guides me and is very close to me. Whenever I have some problem  I go to him. Apart from him, Neeta Shetty, Shobhit Attray who played Chand in Prithvi Raj Chauhan, Aniruddh Dave are amongst my 4 am friends.  

Any interesting fan encounter you would like to share?

It used to happen a lot when I was doing Prithviraj Chauhan. Once when I was buying something from a shopping mall a group of fans came there calling out to me as Sanyogita and they asked for my autographs. They actually inquired about the place I bought jewelry from. It was shocking for me. 

Message to your fans?

Live life happily as it is very short. Don't think about the past, just think about your future and enjoy your present. Enjoy your life to the fullest and drink plenty of water.
