Let's have a look on what she said…
has your journey been in this industry?
My journey has been very good so far. I feel blessed as I am getting to live my
dream. There are a very few people who get to live their dream hence I find myself
lucky. I have got a chance to work with many talented people and got to learn a
lot too from them.
How did acting happen to you?
I always wanted to be an actor since childhood. I used to do many plays in school and colleges as I love acting. Before getting into the television industry I used to work in a BPO but yet I never gave up on becoming an actor. One day I saw an advertisement in Maharashtra Times newspaper for a beauty pageant and I thought of giving it a try. I stood second runner up for the same and then there was no looking back. I stopped working in the BPO and started searching for work in the television industry. Few days later I got a call for a Marathi show Laxmanresha. I gave audition for it and I cracked the show too. My dreamland journey started from there.
If not an actor what
would you be?
I like photography very much, I keep clicking random pictures. It has become my hobby too in my free time. So definitely if I not an actor then I would be a photographer.
Well talking about Sanskaar Dharohar Apnon Ki, how was your journey in that show?
My journey in Sanskaar Dharohar Apnon ki from the time that I started doing the show till the time I left was really superb. I got to learn a lot as I worked with really good and professional actors.
What made you take up that show?
Honestly, like any other actor even I wanted to work with Colors channel. When I auditioned for the role of Bharti for the very first time, I found it a very superb character and I thought to take it up.
How was it working with the co-stars and the production house?
All the cast of Sanskaar Dharohar Apnon Ki, was very talented and intelligent hence it was really lovely working with them all.
Do you think taking Sanskaar - Dharohar Apnon Ki was a mistake?
I don't think that
taking up Sanskaar – Dharohar Apnon Ki was a mistake for me. I believe that
everything that I do in my life is an experience for me. So I don't regret taking
up that show but definitely I have got to learn a lot through it.
Do you think Supriya Kumari who has replaced you will be able to leave a mark as you did? How do you find her as Bharti?
I have not seen any of Supriya's performance on the show as in yet as I don't follow the show. But if she has been chosen to play the role of Bharti, then I am sure she must be good and capable to play that role.
How soon do we get to see you on screen?
Well if I get a good opportunity then I would happily take it but I would not want to come back soon on television as I need a break.
Out of the shows that you have done, which is the most memorable one and why?
Out of all the shows that I have done, Rang Badalti Odhni and Laxmanresha are the shows that are very close to my heart. They are the most memorable. My Marathi television show Laxmanresha taught me a lot of things and gave me a bunch of crazy and true friends for life. Same goes with Rang Badalti Odhni too, it was a superb show and it gave me a lot of recognition and fame in the television industry.
The current ongoing show you would want to be a part of and why?
No, currently I wouldn't want to be a part of any ongoing show on television. I would love to comeback with a brand new show.
Your favorite show on television?
Though I don't catch up with television soaps as much as I don't watch television on a daily basis. But I quite enjoy the comedy show on Sony TV namely Comedy Circus.
A role you wish to play on television?
Something which is very challenging and superb. It should be appreciated by the viewers and also should give me satisfaction and happiness to portray that character.
A message for your viewers.
My viewers are my
biggest strength as they have been very supportive throughout my journey till
now. I love you all for the love that you shower on me. But I think you all
have to wait to watch me on television as I make no plans to comeback on
