After the hit show ‘Desh Main Nikala Hoga Chand’ wherein you played a positive character, you are now playing a negative one. Who is your inspiration for this role?
‘I like doing negative roles in ‘reel’ life, but in real life, I am a completely opposite person. I have always admired Sridevi and her portrayal of the negative role in the movie ‘Judaai’ really inspired me. Types of role don’t matter as much as the person portraying them. Today every top actor and actresses are playing negative roles, so why not me.’
Is your character ‘Sudha’ in the TV series inspired by the character of ‘Sudha’ in the movie Devdas?
‘No, not the character but yes the look of the character is surely inspired by the Devdas movie character ‘Sudha’. After reading the script, I wanted to play the Indian Bengali character will all such things like sari draping style, long hair, a normal healthy Bengali figure.’
Will your character in the show, appear on a regular basis?
‘Not so much in the initial days, but after Navratri, I will be a regular on the show.’
What is the reason behind your detachment from social media?
‘I am rarely on social media as I am a very lazy person and most of the times I don’t really have anything to share on the social media. I don’t really know and like all the social media stuff like posting, liking and more such things, and I still feel I am 10 years behind other people in this field.’
How do you balance your personal and professional life?
‘ Family and friends are of utmost importance to me. I literally run to my family after pack up.’
What are your views regarding the Triple Talaq verdict of the Supreme Court?
‘I believe this ruling will empower women all over as now it won’t be so easy to divorce a female and they will have equal importance. SC has given the best verdict and everyone should welcome it.’
