1. Tell us about yourself and your journey?
Ans-Being a small town girl when I started my journey in acting career, I faced many challenges. Belonging to a conservative family, my parents were very strict about my career in acting field.
But somehow I managed to give my first audition for a Colombo based movie. Then I smoothly walked into my acting in TV serials where I got a break for my role in the Star Plus hit ‘Mann Ki Awaaz… Pratigya’ in which I played the role of Ammaji, who was an old woman. Apart from these, I also love to do cooking.
2. Since you have worked both in serials and movies, What kind of difference you find between both?
Ans-While working in both the tv serials and movies, I found more challenging in working with tv serials because it needs 24×7 working hours for the rehearsals. Everyday we are geting a new scipt and I had to portray the character on spot. There was no times given for rehearsals.
3. Tell us about your character Amma Ji in the serial Pratigya?
Ans- ‘Ammaji’, who is an old woman playing a role of typical mother-in-law in the serial. As she herself faced a domestic violence by her husband and she was frustrated so she always tortures her daughter- in-law. She keeps on throwing tantrums to her daughter-in-law by some famous dialogues – ‘Oo Maidam’, ‘Maharani Bhictoria’. Though it was very tough for me to convey a character of a 60 years old woman as I was 29 years at that time.
4. What problems you faced when you went to mumbai from a small town?
Ans-Being unaware of the facts in acting industries, I just went to give my audition as I was very much passionate about my acting. Although, I didn’t have much knowledge about the industries and the technologies but still I managed to get more opportunities in the field of acting. I was very much passionate about acting so, I liked the challenging role. As I always wanted to do for my society, so I came up with the movie “Gutrun Gutargun” which was based on social cause.
5. Tell us about your upcoming projects?
Ans-Rightnow, I am working on a project for the students of bihar in the field of acting. As I always wanted to do for my society so, I am planning to set a platform for the small town childeren. Those who are interested in acting but unable to go out of station for their career in acting. Here, I am going to do a workshop for the interested students in their own city. In that workshop they will get all the information about acting and also a practical knowledge which will help them in getting the complete experience in the field of acting industries.
