Actress Neha Sargam, who was recently seen playing Sita in Zee TV's mythological show Ramayan had a great experience playing Sita in the show. The talented actress has got to learn a lot from the show and from her character. TellyBuzz decided to speak to Neha about her experience of playing the character of Sita and her singing talent.
Talking about the experience of playing the character of Sita, Neha told us, "The character of Sita was amazing and delightful to portray on screen and it was a learning experience for me as well. We get to learn something as well when we get to play a positive character. It improved me as a person. Sita was a very powerful character to play. I got to learn that running in a forest while wearing a saree is not easy (laughs). I learnt to be graceful and work upon the stability part which was required to play this character."
Neha finds it difficult to shoot for the show. Talking about the same, she shares, "It was very difficult for us to shoot for some scenes. 80% of the shots were shot on real locations and only 20% of the shots were taken on the chroma. We had to shoot in the jungles were there were thorny plants because of which we used to get scratches. Taking care of us, the production house got special footwear for us. Our footwear were made up of rubber and not of wood. The thorns would hurt us and because of the prick of the thorns we used to get scratches. Though it was difficult but it was very adventurous for us. We used to enjoy a lot."
Neha is a talented trained singer. When asked her whether she used to give time to her singing talent when she used to be on the sets, she told us, "Though I used to not get time to do my Riyaaz in the morning, I used make it a point to sing on the sets or in my make up room. I have been singing since the age of 3 years and my entire family is into classical singing."
When asked Neha about her preference between acting and singing talent, she said, "Singing is little strict so it becomes little tough for me because you have to sing it in right way and manner. Acting can be edited but singing cannot be edited. Acting is more easy and has less limitations than singing but they both demand a lot of hard work."
"All I can do with my singing is that I can do my Riyaaz (practice) and
I will be very happy if I get a chance to enter into the music
industry. I think that if I will be honest to my art then the avenues will open up for
me soon. In future, I would like to play a very lively and a realistic kind of
a role," concludes Neha when quizzed her about her future plans.
