1. So you have been juggling two shows is it difficult ?
Yes, juggling between shows is obviously difficult the characters are different so on a physical level it does take a toll but luckily for me the producers are the same the date and timings get adjusted but yes the mental and physical exhaustion is a little more...But otherwise, I love my job and it gives me job satisfaction. Plus playing Parvati and Kali are cameos so this wraps up soon.
2. You recently celebrated your first birthday post marriage how special was it ?
I love birthdays. I have this girl like excitement ever since my childhood this year was my first birthday and my husband did everything to make it special. My mom is here so my entire family celebrated. I started my day with going to the temple and evening was with close family and friends over an intimate dinner with people who matter. I also always gift myself on my birthday thats something i always do so i gifted myself an LV bag this year.
3. Do we see you on OTT as well?
I am an artist and the mediums do not matter to me. I started with films in Bengali cinema and then moved to do TV. I am extremely proud of the work I do and TV is my love. I shall never leave TV for OTT cos of the medium but am open to good content on any medium.

Professionally, currently it is Sim sim and my cameo and personally this year is a lot of firsts for me from my first birthday to my Pujas and then our anniversary am trying to celebrate all my firsts with him want to make this year a fulfilling one.
5. If not an actor what would you have been?
I was very good academically so my family always thought I'd take up a profession like being a doctor or a lawyer, but now when i think of it i would've been a lawyer or a journalist maybe but am so happy being an artist and nothing else can compare to me being anything else today I cant imagine myself elsewhere to be honest.

I am very open to reality shows. I have done a few so am open to it. I am hoping Jhalak happens as enjoy dancing so I hope to manifest Jhalak in my life.

Bengali cinema is where I started from modelling to couple of Bengali films and Bengal is my root and a big part of my professional journey then TV and Mumbai happened but yes now since a lot has evolved in the Bengali industry too I do hope to take it up soon.
