The cute girl next door, Pariva Pranati
is ready to do something which most girls don't even think about i.e. becoming a cop in SET's upcoming daily show Salaam Zindgi.
Telly Buzz caught up with this daughter of an air force pilot for a brief on the show and her career in general.
What attracted you towards Salaam Zindgi?
It's a show which is very apt for today’s viewers, a show where
young girls learn to successfully balance both professional life and
life at home. A plus point is that my dad will love to see me clad in a
Your physique is nowhere near to a police woman, what is your take on it?
You bet! At first when people around me heard about my
role, they said the same thing and had a hearty laugh. The talk around
was that I look too puny to play a cop. But when they heard the
concept that I become a cop to please my heartbroken grandfather, they
Did you watch police movies or shows like Udaan and Tejawani to get pointers?
No, I believe that if I impersonate any one, I will loose my
originality. We have had a thorough briefing and that is enough
for me. But yes, whenever I see a female cop, I study her from top to
toe to see her mannerism and dressing style, which I incorporate as and
Will you be a hard cop?
No, I will be a sweet cop. Police personnel are also human. It is
just because of their interaction with wrong people, that they have to
act hard, and women generally are softer by nature. Don't all
police woman become house wives, when they return home from duty?
What went wrong with your Prithviraj Chauhan role?
The production house was not sure when my role will start, for then
's track was going great, hence I decided to opt out.
I have a family to take care of. Luckily the producing house understood
my problem and eased me out.
Talk us through your roles.
My character in Bhabhi
was completely different to my Saathii Re
role. Similarly this new show will see me in a complete contrast avatar
Since you are well versed in both Indian and western dance forms, will you take up reality shows in the near future?
Why not, Jhalak and Nach Baliye really rocks.
Nach Baliye, so you have a balliye, who is he?
There is somebody, but I will reveal everything when the time is right.
Is your Virrudh character over?
has left home as she has brain tumor.
Whether she comes back or not is an open question, which the creative
team will have to answer.
Don't you think you did not get enough screen space in the above show?
Just working with great stars like Smriti Irani and Vikram
Gokhale was good enough for me. Achint Mam really helped me
a lot. I and Karan (Mehra ) have a give and take
relationship in terms of acting tips.
I have shot for Deepti Bhatnagar
's Shaadi Street ,
unfortunately I have no clue when this Star
Plus show will air. It was blast shooting for
this show as I acted as a stylish girl in it.
