Actor Hiba Nawab, who has been part of five shows in her five-year long career, finds comedy tough yet is revelling in the success of her sitcoms.
Having started her
career as a child artiste, Hiba starred in the TV show Crazy
Stupid Love as a grown-up when she was 16. Since then, Hiba has been
working non-stop on the small screen. After starting off with
dramatic shows such as Tere Sheher Mein and Meri Saasu Maa, she seems
to have found her groove in comedy shows such as Bhaag Bakool Bhaag
and her currently popular sitcom, Jijaji Chhat Par Hai.
Talking about why she switched genres, Hiba says, "I wanted to try something else after the dramatic shows, and when I was offered a sitcom, I took it up. Jijaji Chhat Par Hai is a unique show and it's fun doing it. Benifer and Sanjay Kohli are nice producers. It's interesting and fun. Unlike a drama, where you enact dramatic or emotional scenes or cry often, all of which is exhausting. Heavy-duty scenes take a toll on your physical and mental state. But in a sitcom, it's all fun and laughter. I am fun-loving and cheerful in real life, so it all works out."
Going forward, will she stick to comedy? "I am enjoying comedy. I have got so much appreciation for my role in Jijaji Chhat Par Hai. The comedy is relatable, bit naughty and has a family angle to it as well. It's an entertaining show. When I began doing comedy, I didn't think I would be able to pull it off. I was scared as comedy is difficult. Every day I am learning on the job. Having said that, I would love to be part of other genres, maybe a supernatural drama. I want to do different kind of roles as an actor," she says.
Ask her if she
worries about burning out and she says, "Not really. It depends on
the person. To each his own. I have always tried to take a break
between shows. I am happy working and can't sit at home for long. I
do ensure I take time out for myself. I have enjoyed my shows and
when you enjoy your work, it doesn't seem like a task. Sure, after
Tere Sheher Mein ended, I took on Meri Saasu Maa within a month but
that's because it was a good role to pass on. I agree one does
exert oneself at times when deadlines have to be met but that is
rare. That can happen in any field, not just acting."
