Actress Sanchita Puri has garnered positive reviews for her performances in the web space with projects like Baarish, The Final Call, Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story. She made her Bollywood debut with Ginny Weds Sunny starring Vikrant Massey and Yami Gautam.
We got in a conversation with Sanchita where she opened up about her experience of working on Ginny Weds Sunny, her take on arranged marriages and not having a filmy surname.
Calling it a great experience, Sanchita shares that she ‘learnt a lot on set while working with talented and experienced actors like Yami and Vikrant.’
Since the film revolves around the theme of marriage, we asked hwe about her take on the idea of arranged marriage, to which she replied:
“I’m not open to the idea of arrange marriage. In the film you see how the actors fall in love as it’s a love cum arrange marriage so I would prefer that. I believe marriage is a very big decision of life and one should be fully aware of the person before taking this big step. Spending time with a person, knowing the likes and dislikes of a person plays a huge part so I would definitely prefer a love marriage over arranged.”
Sanchita has worked on various projects in the digital world and when quizzed if not having a filmy surname ever came in the way of her work, she shared:
“Having a filmy surname would have definitely helped me, because had I been from the industry, the struggle would have been lesser. But, the hard work and dedication required for the job would have been the same. The struggle is definitely lesser for industry kids as compared to the outsiders.”
Meanwhile, speaking of future projects, Sanchita said that things have been really slow because of the pandemic and she is waiting for them to get better.
