Lets have a look on what she said...
How was your journey in this industry?
It was pretty good so far, and a learning experience for me as an actor as I did not take up any acting classes to learn acting. I am so far very satisfied with what I have done, hope it continues to be the same in the future too.
How was it being a part of Na Aana Iss Desh Laado?
It was a great show with a great cast. I got to learn a lot through that show and at the same time I got fame and recognition through it. Na Aana... played a very big part in my acting career. I used to feel very proud of the fact that people recognized me as Diya when I used to go to malls or walk on the street during the time the show was on air. For quite some time even after my show Anamika started, I was still recognized as Diya only and I wanted to get out of that zone and make people know that I am now Anamika. My wish soon turned to reality and now people do call me by Anamika. The character has left a mark on the audience. All thanks to the makers who thought that I would be able to play this role.
Anyone from the show Na Aana Iss Desh Ladoo to whom you are still close too?
Yes there a couple of people to whom I am close too. Meghna Malik who played the role of Ammaji is one fabulous actress, and I have learnt a lot from her. I still call her as Amma and we do catch up often. She is one lady who I look up to and is like a role model to me. So also Madhurjeet Sarghi who played my Taiji and helped me a lot getting into the character and also while rehearsing for my dialogues. My reel sister in that show namely Vaishnavi was also really a fun to be around with.
If Na Aana Iss Des Ladoo comes up with season 2, and is offered to you than would you want to be a part of it?
Well I will be a little bit selfish in this matter, I would love to be a part of this show again if it comes up with season 2 but only if my character is different than what I played as Diya. I don't want to repeat the roles that I have played earlier onscreen. I like doing different things and hence that applies to the roles I take up, too.
How is it being a part of Anamika?
It is a different show and I am enjoying it. Generally I shoot alone so I have bonded really well with behind the screen people who I work with mostly but not that well with my co-actors.
What we heard before was that Anamika will portray a grey shade but what we see now is that the role has turned out to be negative. What have you to say on this?
Well yes, initially I was told that Anamika is a grey character which turned out to be negative later. I am not much happy with it but I am still giving my 100% to the show because I don't find it right to quit the show. Even the makers know that I am not happy with the way my character is shaping.
Out of the shows that you have done, which one was the most memorable so far?
I cannot be biased towards any of the shows I have done so far. All were very memorable as each taught me something new. Naa Asana Iss Des Laado was a learning experience as an actor. Performance wise it was Anamika and also Na Aaana Iss Des Laado while Love Ne Bana Di Jodi came in as a very good opportunity for my acting career.
Which type of character are looking forward to play after Anamika?
I would really want to try my hand at comedy now. It is my wish to get out of my comfort zone and try something different. I am looking forward to do a light-hearted comedy show after Anamika.
Any ongoing show you would want to be a part of?
I do not watch television soaps at all. I have seen the reality show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa and I would love to be a part of it.
Who inspires you in this industry?
Definitely Meghna Malik and Madhurjeet Sarghi are the two ladies who inspire me in this industry.
