Star One’s Dill Mill Gayye has at last revealed its new Riddhima and as confirmed by Telly Buzz few days back, it is the Jersey No. 10 girl Sukriti Khandpal who gets into the shoes of Shilpa Anand.

Here is Telly Buzz reporter Binita Ramchandani talking to the beautiful Sukriti Khandpal at the press conference held recently….

Did you expect that you will get to play the role of Riddhima?
Yes, I was very confident that I will get this role. When I started my shoot, I was nervous but the way the production house supported me has been remarkable. Even the co-artists have put me at ease and I am enjoying every moment of my shoot.

Any specific preparation you had to undergo to get into the shoes of Riddhima..
I think Riddhima is a very natural and real character, which does not need much preparation. Above all, I am very happy that I am not playing the stereotype girl who will only be seen wearing short skirts (laughs). I am glad that I have got two real characters to play in television, whether it is Jersey No. 10 or Dill Mill Gayye.

How important do you think is your co-star? How do you think you will go about sharing screen space with Karan?
I think in any serial you work in, the co-star plays a major role. Karan and I have become very good friends in a short span of time. He has made me feel comfortable on the sets. I just hope that we both can have a good chemistry going on screen too..

Shilpa Anand has been the face of Riddhima and has carved a niche for herself in the viewers’ heart. Do you think you will be able to do justice to the role?
I think it is for the audience to decide. The only thing I can say at the outset is that I will put in my 100 percent to work. I am pretty confident that with the support and encouragement of the production house, channel and my co-artists, I will slowly make a place for myself in the viewers’ heart. I hope and pray that I am successful in living up to the expectation of one and all.

What kind of a rapport do you share with Shilpa Anand? Have you talked to her after getting selected for this role?
Well, please note that Shilpa and I have worked together in the past and we share a very good rapport. In fact, she was very happy when she got to know that I will play Riddhima and she welcomed me on the sets very nicely. She has always been very helpful.

What is your dream role?
I would always want to play realistic characters and would love to try something new and different every time I take up a new role.

If not an actor, then what would you have been?
Well, I would have been a social worker or a lawyer.
