to be among the most popular vamps on Indian Television, Sonia is
headed towards a drastic change to her stereotyped image. Sonia is a
part of Star One’s - Dill Mill Gaye, where she plays the character of -
Keerti Mehra, a strict doctor, who makes life difficult for the interns.
We talk to Sonia and get an insight to her character in the show, her future projects, and how does she feel about her versatile roles.
Tell us something about your role in the new show:
I play a character called - Keerti Mehra, who is a strict professor who makes life a little difficult for the interns. She isn’t a negative character, thank-fully (laughter).
How is it been playing a positive character for the first time on Indian television?
I am so glad that I am not playing a vamp. It was time I began doing something different. Its been a little difficult actually, playing positive. Between the shots, the director has to cut the shot, as my expressions look negative, so it was difficult at first, but I am sure soon, I’ll get the hang of it.
There have been rumors that you might return to KumKum, is that going to happen anytime soon?
I don’t know, I was to start shooting soon with them, but things didn’t work out, the production has asked me to join them, in the first week of September, lets see how that works out.
A final note take on your new show?
Its something very different, my character, the story, everything. So be on a lookout for Dil Mil Gaye.
We wish Sonia the very best for her new change of direction. Catch Dill Mill Gayee on Star One.
