Kamya Punjabi, who has just entered Amber Dhara as the vampish Deepika is quite content doing negative roles. Besides this SET show, Kamya is also making life hell for her Dulhann co star's, as Sindoora as well. Its not that she does not want to do positive roles. "My first show Kehta Hai Dill, was an out and out sweet character, but then you have to make do with what you get", she reasons.

Since most negative roles are similar, don't you get bored? "I try to play each character as differently as possible. If you watch carefully, Sindoora is always subtle dressed. On the other hand, Deepika is defiantly more louder, but that's the demand of the character. Here, I play a social butterfly , in whose house the twins work to make money. In an attempt to act better, I get into the skin of the character and start thinking like them", says Kamya.

Going in flash back mode, Kamya says that it was her grayish character in Astivta, which type cast her in this genre. "Although, I would not call Kiran bad, she had fallen in love with a married guy, but what is wrong in that? At least, she did not scheme to murder people or drive them away. Rather the poor thing would cry at her fate", argues the actress.

The success of Astitva saw her doing Reth, Piya Ka Ghar and Woh Rehne Waali Mehlon Ki , all negative. Why did you quit the last ? "You can't expect me play a grand mom at 28. The actors who are playing my children are younger then me", she angrily asserted.

In closing, Kamya could not help, but remember the funny incidents which happen when she goes out. Old ladies just surround her and heckle her for being the wicked Sindoora. "I tackle them according to my mood. If happy, I patiently explain to them that its just a character. But if stressed out, I, curtly remark, that I am paid to be bad"!

Shazam 15 years ago I really like sindoora in dulhan.... I love the way she is dressed, very elegant without not any loud makeup (which I cant stand). But, hopefully the producers give her more clothes. She seems to repeat a lot of the sarees.
