Diminishing division

TV actor Roshni Chopra, who makes her acting debut in Bollywood with Vikram Bhatt’s Phhir, says the lines between television and films have diminished.

“Now, even big stars from Bollywood are doing TV shows. And lots of TV actors are doing films, so I feel the lines are very blurry between the two mediums. I want to do interesting work, whatever may be the medium, films or TV or theatre,” says Roshni, who shot to fame, after playing the role of Pia in Ekta Kapoor’s TV serial Kasamh Se on Zee TV.

The 30-year-old actor, who essays the role of Sia, an NRI lawyer, who marries a doctor, in the film, says, “I’m thankful to Vikram (Bhatt), for giving me a break in Bollywood. The Bhatt camp is known for promoting new talent, and I’m sure this will help me go a long way in my acting career.”

Elaborating her character in the film, she says, “I’m playing a role of an NRI girl who lives in England. Rajneesh (Duggal) is playing my husband in the film. They are a young couple and very much in love. There is no love triangle in Phhir. But something happens and the girl goes missing. There are many twists and turns.” When asked whether she believes in supernatural powers, the actor says, “I believe in reincarnation. I’m interested to know about scientific experiments, past life, revenge and mythology.

I think we have many reincarnations and I also believe in Karma, whatever you do, it will come back to you.”
