B town's gorgeous actress Amrita Rao's sister Preetika Rao who is very well known for her acting skills in southern films is all set to be seen making a debut on TV. She will be seen in Color's show Beintehaan in a lead role.
Preetika shares about her journey in the acting industry, her character in the show and much more in conversation with TellyBuzz.
Let's see what Preetika has to share with us...
When asked about her journey in the acting industry, Preetika says, "I was modeling and simultaneously contributing as a film-journalist to news-dailies like Bangalore Mirror, Deccan Chronicle & Asian Age Mumbai. I also had my Bollywood column with South Side movie magazine in Chennai. I was spotted by a director who saw my Column picture and he offered me a Tamil movie debut which was well received by the film-critics."
She further elaborated saying, "After that I quit South cinema for a diploma in broadcast journalism from the prestigious New York film academy. I had announced that once I'm back I am looking forward to work from Mumbai."
So what are the offers she has in her kitty? "I have been receiving tele-series offers from almost a year now, but I prioritized my personal time out. Once I was back, 5 production houses offered me to play the lead for their respective tele-shows - however, Producer Farahan Salaruddin's show Beintehaa for prime time Colors was the one that appealed to me the most," says Preetika.
How has been the transformation from Bollywood to TV? Preetika says, "TV is the new ' in ' thing in Bollywood! I'm excited about my TV debut - more so because my relatives follow television more keenly than films."
Well talking about her character in the show Beintehaa, Preetika replies, "I play a Muslim girl who hails from Bhopal. She is brought up in a pure Muslim family. The story of the show is set against Muslim marriage laws and the show is scheduled to replace Big Boss."
