Actress Jasmin Bhasin says she tried her hand at a non-fiction show last year as she believes that it's important to balance between real and reel personalities.

She is currently seen facing her fears and doing stunts on a non-fiction show. From Tuesday evening onwards, she will also appear on StarPlus' fiction show Dil Toh Happy Hai Ji.

"It's important to do non-fiction shows also so that you can maintain a balance between your real personality and the characters that you are playing. That's why I chose to do a non-fiction show," says Jasmin.

She was last seen in Colors' Dil Se Dil Tak opposite actor Siddharth Shukla.

"When you do a character for a year and a half, you live that character. My last character was very different. She was a Gujarati girl. So, it was challenging to get out of it and leave that accent," said the actress, who hails from Kota.

To play Happy Mehra on her new show, she took up meditation.

"We all lead a stressful life, especially TV actors," she said.

She is currently enjoying playing numerous roles on the small screen, but acting was not always on her mind.

"I never thought that I'd become an actor. I come from a small town and a conservative family. I have a background in hospitality industry. Then I started getting modelling contracts and was offered south Indian movies so, I thought that maybe acting was my destiny. I gave it a shot and here I am - happy and content," she said.

Jasmin has also featured in south Indian films like "Vaanam", "Beware of Dogs" and "Veta". What about a Hindi film?

"I never said no, but I don't want to do a movie just for the sake of doing a movie...like out of desperation. I will do when I am sure about the role that I am playing. I will take a thoughtful and calculated decision," she said.

Well done, Jasmin Bhasin. We love you. Many of us love you
Few haters don't matter. And as you said, you have no problem if people don't like you. We ignore these few ones too. Shine on.

She wasn't paired opposite Siddharth Shukla. Get your facts right. Siddharth thankfully left the show before that disaster could happen.

The very best part of Dil Se Dil Tak was Siddharth Shukla as Parth...
