We got in a candid conversation with Prinal to know how tough is it to get into the shoes of a Producer, difficulties faced in managing the time in producing the play and acting in a show simultaneously, her future plans, the rumors about about her relationship with Pankaj Singh and much more.
Here is Prinal Oberoi unplugged...
I am feeling more responsible being a producer of a play -
"It feels very good to step into the shoes of a Producer. I am feeling more responsible, very much excited as it is my first project as a Producer and at the same time I am nervous too as how will the play go,I am keeping my fingers crossed and I am hoping for the best."
It is a thriller play that I am producing -
"It is basically a thriller play and it is named as Kknock KKnock. We have strong and talented actors in the play namely Rajesh Khera and Hasan Zaidi. The first show will release on 1st of December."
Being a Producer happened just by chance -
"Well, it all happened by chance, nothing was planned. I was friends with Pankaj Singh since the time of Shapath. We both had done an episodic for the show Hum Ne Li Hai... Shapath together and from then we bonded really well. We have our small group of friends and we used to go to watch plays and hang out often and that's how we quickly thought of producing a play, fortune favored us and things went well and here are we with our own play."
I might later act into my plays but not at this moment -
"No, I won't be acting in the play. This time I will be working behind the camera and experiencing the new field for me that is of production. I had acted in plays when I was in college, after that I haven't done plays at all so I have totally lost the hang of it. But definitely in future I would want to even act in plays."
"I am trying to manage my time as well, for most of the times I am shooting for the show Pyar Ka Dard Hai Meetha Meetha... Pyaara Pyaara on Star Plus. Shooting for this show takes most of my hours from the day hence I have to juggle between the play and the shoot. I am thankful to Pankaj Singh who is the director of my play, he makes things much easier for me, well also the actors and a few more people from the production house have been very helpful and supportive and hence everything is manageable."
There are yet a lot of things that I want to do in my life. Producing a play is just a small step towards Production -
"No, currently I am not at all looking forward to open my own production house. But may be after a span of few years I might think of opening my own production house. I have started everything at a very small scale as in yet, there are a lot of things that I want to do in my life. I have a long way to go!"
Rubbish rumors going around the corners -
"Well there are these just false rumors going around the corner. There is nothing between me and Pankaj Singh. We are just friends and some people have mistaken us as girlfriend-boyfriend, which is wired. If there is something like this then I will surely officially announce (laughs)."
