This versatile actor talks about her character, journey in this industry and more.
Let's see what she has to say...
Tell us something about your character ?
Neha is a girl who was in coma for 12 years and when
she comes out of coma she finds changes in her surrounding uske liye sab
badal jata hai. She accepts the fact and moves ahead in her life.
She thinks that she is going to enjoy all those days she has missed in her life. Neha is a woman who has a heart of child, she is very innocent and does not know to trick anyone that's what makes her adorable and special from others.
What was the main motto behind taking up this project?
My main motto is that I was looking for a good story and good character. When I came across this I felt the character very interesting and challenging.
Do you relate to your character ?
I relate to my character and think that even I have that childish behavior in me, so I have added my own qualities in this character.
You did 12/24 Karol Bagh, then Suvreen Guggal and now Itte Si Khushi , so how does it feel doing different characters?
When I did
Karol Bagh I had to put on weight, I had to change my style of walking and
talking. Later I used to get offers similar to the character I played in Karol
Bagh, I wanted to break the perception of people by being a versatile actor. I
thought that's how you are going to take me then I am going to show you
complete different Smriti. I took a break, worked very hard and lost 30 kgs of
weight for Suvreen Guggal.
When Suvreen happened to mean no one even recognized that I am that same girl, that's what I felt proud about me as my hard work was paid off. I have only one funda of my life which is to enjoy and experiment all that comes my way, by playing different characters I get to live the life in a new way every time. So I want to live the life of as many characters as I can and live the life of them.
Then again I took a break of sic months after Suvreen because I was waiting for something very interesting. Many people focus on channel, fame and production but my only focus is to earn respect and love by working hard.
Audience has always seen you in less makeup in the shows , do you prefer that or its just because your character demands so?
I don't like make-up and thankfully all the characters that I have played till now has never demanded me to apply make up. I feel make up is meant to hide someone's kamiya. I actually bow to those girls who can act by wearing make up and high heels because its not easy, I can't even stand in heels for few hours.
How is the experience of working with the ace producer Rajan Shahi?
He is brilliant. It feels great working with him.
He gives us our space and freedom, he understands us very well.
