Being a TV actor comes with an extremely challenging schedule and commitments. However, actress Raavee Gupta, who has been part of shows such as Kyunkii Saas bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, Kahin Kisi Roz and Naagin 5, says that one needs to give oneself a break. It’s important to balance all parts of your life, she says.
“In various types of work, there is often a motivation that comes from having a routine. I understand that it instils a sense of discipline. However, it's undeniably hard work. I comprehend that when you're young and new to the industry, you have the immense pressure of proving yourself to the world, and you're willing to go to great lengths to achieve that. Nevertheless, I firmly believe that it's essential for all of us to pace ourselves and prioritise the well-being of our physical and mental health while working,” she says.

Ask her if there is something that should change in the industry, and she says, “The only change I feel is that there are two sides to the coin when you work so intensely in a day. It has its pros and cons. Somewhere we need to maintain a work-life balance. If there could be some kind of structure or system where actors get more time for their families when the shows are on air, it would make a significant difference. We all know how hectic things can get, where days and nights blur together, and you hardly have any time for your family or anything else. Occasional rushes are understandable, but overall, I believe that things have already improved in the last few years, and I hope they continue to get even better. The change I wish to see in our industry is for it to be less hectic. Mumbai is an incredibly fast-paced city, and we spend a significant part of our lives traveling. If work pressure could be reduced, I am confident we could produce even better work, which would benefit everyone.”
