Now you are back to show...
Leaving the show was not a happy decision. All the issues which we had internally, have been resolved and what could be a better thing like coming back to my house (smiles)!
I don't want to get back to that day because it was a painful memory for me. I don't want to get back to whatever happened. The good thing is that I am back and all the issues have been resolved. I have no hard feelings for anyone among the entire Colors family and the production house. We all have taken a collective decision and we have always understood each other very well and that's the reason I am here today.
So, its like a big family and we share a strong bond in the period of 3 years which is very difficult to explain in words. I am sure that its not only me who is having this kind of a journey but every actor who plays a particular role, for such a long time, must be having that kind of a journey. We have so many memories like my entry sequence which happened with a dance performance. From that day, we had so many dance performances including the retro one. There was a very emotional sequence where I had a mis-carriage after falling from the stairs. That was a very emotional and a strong patch of the show. There have been such moments which I am very much connected to.
Simar is very simple and her simplicity sometimes becomes very challenging because she is a very simple girl next door. She protects her family being in her limits.
There are lot of things to learn. Simar's simplicity, her love towards every character, the way she molds herself in every role like being from a daughter to a wife, a daughter in law, a mother, a sister and the relation of these sisters is so complicated as even though Roli is younger to Simar but she is elder to Simar at the in laws place. Playing Simar is a beautiful journey.
I am very similar to Simar. I love to be at home on my day offs and I love to cook. I love to take care of my house and decorate it. I love to go out with my family and friends and spend quality time with them. I don't like parties. I am not at all a party animal. The only thing which differs me and Simar is that I speak a lot whereas she doesn't (laughs).
It was not planned. I left flying due to some medical reasons. My mom wanted me to be a television actor. My mom and my friends wanted me to try my luck and I tried. The industry has treated me really well till now. I am thankful to God and the industry.
It was around a period of 8 months that I circulated my pictures and was waiting for the call. I got my first break after 8-9 months.
It's as good as a house; we are like a family. We shoot for 12 hours then we go to our home, eat and then go to sleep. For me, a house becomes a lodge and this is the main house where we are staying in. We spend a lot of time here when our mood is good or bad or we are ill.
It's not difficult because when we start doing a new show then we have the zeal of working with new artists. We were already like a family for each other and Dheeraj was the one who was coming as the new entrant to our family and everything was new for him. There wasn't any problem for him because as an actor he came here and in the show we both were shown as a married couple. It was quite easy getting along with Dheeraj.
Nowadays, we just fool around! When the show started, we also had a younger brother and it was shown on-screen that they used to fight a lot and I used to solve things between them. The same used to happen off-screen too and now also she keeps going on talking like a younger sister and I make her understand things to her. I also have the same off screen chemistry with Khushi (Jyotsna Chandola) too. So, both of them are like my siblings. With Avika, its always been like a younger sister.
I have never thought of doing films because I always wanted to give my complete time over here. In future after this, if I will get an offer, then I will think over it then but I have not thought about it yet.
