I am debuting on television for the first time and even more excited as it would be on Star Plus, one of the most loved and viewed platforms. People have been asking me about why did I choose such a complex character. I have always been ready for challenges and experiments and the role of Roshni was a challenging one hence I decided to challenge myself and hope audience love Roshni. With regards to preparation, I will not shy away from accepting the fact that the character traits of Roshni has few resembles with me in real life, be it the inner or core strength of an individual or a girl with strong opinions, but having said that , I have tried to get into the skin of the character, put in cautious rather extra effort in preparing for the same so as to understand the depth of her angst and the motive behind her actions however having said that mostly I try to react spontaneously and live in the moment trying my best to portray Roshni in the best possible way"
"Honestly speaking, it took me some time to adjust or get accustomed to the situation of playing a Saas in my very first venture but as an artist you should always be ready to accept role which are beyond normalcy or close to bring something different to what you assumed or perceived but I guess this is the beauty of being an artist wherein you are put into the situation over and above your comfort zone thereby giving you an opportunity to learn the craft more efficiently and effectively", Srishti further added
Srishti concluded by giving a sneak peek about her role as Roshni and how much does she relate to Roshni in real life, "Roshni is a multi-dimensional character , a character who is emotional but focused, a character with whom you can empathize and get furious at the same time , a character who looks to avenge herself but for a rightful reason if you put yourself in her shoes, so overall she is a girl with utmost inner strength and courage with logic and own rational opinions and these are the qualities which relate Srishti Singh to Roshni in not just one but many ways".
Chashni stars Amandeep Sidhu and Srishti Singh in lead roles. The show is being produced by Sandiip Sikcand's SOL Production.
