How did Do Dil Ek Jaan happen to you?

I hail from Delhi and came to Mumbai 6 months back. I came to Mumbai with a motive and desire to do something big in life. I got a call from BAG and Nautanki Films for doing a show. I gave an audition for the show and on the same day I got a call that I have been finalized and we have to leave for Kashmir in 4 days. It was unbelievable for me and I was wondering if I was dreaming. They called me to sign the contract the next day. I have got a very big break as a new comer as a new lead. It feels great to receive compliments like the show is looking like a movie and everybody has a dream to do a movie. I am blessed that I am doing a movie on TV.

How was the experience while shooting in Kashmir?

We left for Kashmir within 4 days after signing the contract and shot in -6 degree temperature there. Our schedule was very tough and we had to work very hard. I used to wear a suit all the time and shoot for 10 hours. We had to put in a lot of passion to give the best performance for the scenes. When we were shooting it started to snow. So, it was very tough to shoot there.

I have never worn a Punjabi suit (salwar-kameez) in my entire life. I don't have any Punjabi suit with me as I don't like to wear them. I used to wear a dress even in a wedding. I was new to wearing these suits and jewellery. However, these clothes worked as a savior for me while I was shooting in Kashmir which was cold otherwise I would have been fainted if I had to shoot there in short dresses. It's more like a Yash Raj or a Karan Johar kind of a love story. We learnt a lot after giving every scene and tried to improve.

How is it working with Farooq Shaikh?

This is Farooq ji's debut in TV and luckily, I am playing his daughter. It was a lifetime experience while shooting with him. He loves food and coming from Delhi, I love food too. Both of us used to talk a lot about food and about his life. He is like a natural actor when he comes in front of the camera. He is so good and I got to learn a lot of things from him.

How is your equation with everybody on the sets?

My best friend on the sets is Kishori Shahane mam. My co-star Ayaz is the one who keeps playing prank with me on the sets and he likes pulling my leg all the time. I am the 'Jaan' of the sets of Do Dil Ek Jaan.

Did you get nervous while facing the camera for the first time?

No, it has never happened to me. I am pampered a lot on the sets. If somebody sees me sitting quietly then they come to me and question as if everything is ok with me or not.

How supportive was your family in your decision of getting into acting?

No one from my family belongs to this industry. Only I was the one in my family who was deeply interested in doing make-up, fashion and coming on screen. My family supported me a lot and I am very close to my family. I knew no one in Mumbai and I came here on my own and struggled. With God's grace, I got this show in my first audition. While shooting my Mom was there with me in Srinagar as my support.   

How is your bonding with Ayaz?

We met each other for the first time and we became friends. He has worked earlier in this industry and he has knowledge. Ayaz is a very kind and good person. He taught me how to face the camera. He takes care of all the people on the sets just like a family.
