, known for her serenity, surprised us and even herself by participanting in a stunt based reality show. She is currently seen as a doting bahu in Balika Vadhu
So, was the decision to be part of the reality show an attempt to break the stereotype? "Not at all. I have loved all the characters that I have potrayed so far. I have no qualms about playing the saree clad demure wife or mother at all."
"With my jam packed schedule, I can't take up another daily. So, when this offer came to me, I said 'Why not?'. I am neither here to prove a point to someone nor is it the lure of money, but just that I find this very exciting. I haven't done anything like this before. And meeting Akshay is like icing on the cake," she says.
Ask her what's that one thing that scares her the most, she reveals, "I am a bit timid and water is something I know I am scared of. Baki height ya slimy insects se mujhe itna darr nahi lagta."
