Knitting such several aspiring wishes, Neha Bagga came to Mumbai seven months back to try her luck in the acting profession. Presently seen as Rajji in Colors daily Bani-Ishq Da Kalma, Neha shares her experience of her stay in Mumbai…
Which is your most preferred hangout destination in Mumbai?
Due to the time crunch, I usually end up hanging out at the nearest destinations like Infinity 2, Inorbit and Oberoi malls. And everytime I go to the mall, I never miss out spending time at the food court and experimenting with all the yummy dishes. Otherwise, I get to meet my industry friends only in parties and award functions.
What do you like the most in Mumbai?
It has to be my set, where I spend most of my time. Set against the backdrop of Punjab, the entire set is designed and built in such a way that it is very similar to Chandigarh. Not just that, most of my co-stars are Punjabi as well. Therefore, it does not give me a chance to miss my home town.
Which is the one thing that that you don't like about Mumbai?
One thing I don't like about Mumbai is the traffic congestion in the city and due to monsoon, the scenario has become more pathetic.
Off course, being a girl, your Mumbai exploration must have been incomplete without shopping. Which is your favorite shopping destination in Mumbai?
It's my long time desire to visit Bandra because I've heard from a lot of people that it is a famous destination for shopping, where you'll find the latest fashion, huge range of accessories, trendy clothes and everything else. Till now, I've just been to Lifestyle and Shopper Stop but I really wish to go to Bandra someday, probably when I get an off from shoot.
What difference are you finding between Mumbai and Chandigarh?
Chandigarh is a city where I used to wander with my friends below the magnificent blue sky, with the backdrop of a mountain. I'm quite ambiguous about Mumbai because I'm yet to explore it. (laughs)
Which are the places on your wish list that you want to visit in Mumbai?
I'm craving to visit:
Bandra- obviously for shopping purpose.
Marine Drive- as I have heard a lot about it.
Lonavala- though it is far-off Mumbai, I've heard that sight-seeing at Lonavala is a treat to your eyes especially during monsoon.
