Actress Pooja Banerjee who is currently seen essaying the role of Nivedita Basu in Star Plus show Kasautii Zindagii Kay got into a fun and candid conversation with us. Here she spoke about spending time in quarantine, Kasautii Zindagii Kay co-stars, web series and much more. Have a look:
Talking about spending time in Quarantine and her routine, Pooja said, “I have got a very good schedule actually, that includes lots and lots of cooking.” Pooja also mentioned that her favourite hobby is cooking and reading.
She was asked about when Kehne ko humsafar hai 2 will air on ALTBalaji, to which Pooja replied, “It will come soon, the thing is we wrapped up the shoot before lockdown, so the editing is not done yet. You'll have to wait.”
Pooja was asked to pick up her favourite character between Bani and Nivedita. She responded stating, “I like both but to pick up one, I’ll pick up Bani.”
As we all know about the close bond and friendship that the entire team of Kasautii shares, the team also have their own whatsapp group which is pretty much active. Pooja revealed the name of the group, and it’s called “Aaj Khaane Me Kya Hai”.
She also opened up about missing sets and when asked her what’s the one thing she would like to do post the lockdown ends, she said, “Right now I just want to go to the set and work, I don’t want to travel anywhere.” Apart from shooting Pooja shared that once the lockdown ends, she’ll just take a car and go for a drive.
When asked whether she is doing any web series, Pooja shared, “Ofcourse, I am doing web series. I just wrapped up shooting for two web series.”
She also opened up and shared the one thing which she discovered from shooting Kasautii. She said, “I have realised that being an angry person makes a person very sad from the inside. When you are rude to other people, it makes you sad from the inside.”
Signing off, Pooja said, “I would really like to request all my fans, followers and well wishers that do not step out. The more people are stepping out, the more difficult it is for the government to control the virus. Then there will be further delay in lifting up the lockdown, and it is not nice, it will be a huge loss financially and will be very difficult for the general people. You have no idea how many hospitals are shutting because the doctors and nurses are suffering from the disease.”
She also added, “People are lying about the illness. I had a fever for the past 2 days, I am better now but I didn’t allow anyone to come close to me. I was taking precautions. If you are not keeping well or if you know someone who is not keeping well, you cannot abandon them but there is no point in hiding it, talk about it. Do the doctor and talk to the doctor. Please listen to the doctors, please listen to the authorities. Help each other out. If you find stray dogs, feed them, if you find a needy person, feed them.”
