One needs to sleep with the right people, says Sangeeta Ghosh.india Updated: May 27, 2006 17:21 IST
Sangeeta Ghosh, a popular face on TV, believes that an actress cannot enter Bollywood unless she has proper connections or is ready to have connections in bed with those who matter. She talks about this and more in a freewheeling chat with HTTabloid.
You are a very popular TV star. When do you plan to join Bollywood?
I have all the pre-requisites of becoming a Bollywood heroine - a pretty face and a sexy figure. But, in order to enter the industry I must have proper connections.
If you don't know the right people then you must try to have illicit connections and go to bed with those who matter. But, I am not that kind of a girl who will stoop so low. I do not belong to the category of those girls who are prepared to rub themselves on the face of producers and directors.
When did you start your career as an actress?
Long time back. I have been a successful child artiste. I have worked in Hrishikesh 'HumHindustanti and in Basu Chatterjee's films. I consider myself fortunate for having worked with stalwarts of the film industry.
It seems that you have been working less in TV serials. Is it true?
I believe that one should handle only one project at a time. You cannot concentrate on your work if you have different things in hand. I am investing my future in hard work now.
Do you believe that the gap between the big and small careen is narrowing?
I think many of the TV serials are far more engrossing than Bollywood films. Many celebrities have entered Bollywood through the small screen like Shah Rukh Khan. I am proud that Aroona Iraani considers me to be the lucky mascot for her serials.
Who is your favourite star?
I dream of Abhishek Bachchan. Very often, I admire his picture for long before going to sleep. He is so sexy!!
