For someone who never thought of taking up acting, the journey to stardom has been memorable, feels Kanchi Kaul of Ek Ladaki Anjaani Si. Excerpts from an interview:
How has your life changed after Ek Ladki Anjaani Si?
Oh, it’s been great. The serial has been accepted well by audiences. In fact, I was surprised to see the reaction of people in Kundapur (a small place in Mangalore). We think that people in South don’t watch Hindi serials but there were so many women who came up to me and started calling me as Ananya (the character I play).
There have been changes in the show...
Yeah, Mohnish Behl has been introduced in the show and I have many scenes with him. I am very close to Arzoo Govitrikar, Shakti Anand and my other co-stars, but now we have separate shooting schedules. Most of my shots are with Mohnish, I miss all my friends a lot. Mohnish is a great actor and I enjoy working with him but I am desperate to go back to the old schedule. Also, the plot is getting complex everyday. During the last few days it’s shown that I am in a hospital as am pregnant and, if that is not enough, someone is trying to kill me. So shooting for all this has been taxing.
So how do you relax?
Sleep has become a luxury. So whenever I’m not shooting, I just love to doze off.
Any other project you’d like to talk about?
Right now I’m concentrating on Ek Ladki... and feel that people have accepted this unusual story of travails of an unmarried woman getting pregnant.
Are you going to be selective?
As of now I’m not in a mood to be part of the saas bahu sagas. I want to do different kinds of roles and that’s why I accepted Ek Ladki in the first place. The story should be interesting and gripping.
