They made their relationship public on a recent reality show, but Maheck Chahal is not in a hurry.
Maheck said their respective professional commitments are keeping them busy at the moment and they are not in a hurry to tie the knot. “I think marriage is still too early. We have not completed a year yet so, I can’t really say when we will be tying the knot. We both are very fond of each other and have a great friendship. Our thinking process is quite similar. We both are busy with our work.”
The 37-year-old actor is currently busy shooting supernatural finite series Kavach...Kaali Shaktiyon Se, which marks her debut in fiction. “I won’t do saas-bahu fiction. But definitely, I would love to do a character which is interesting. I don’t think I would do a daily show at this point of time. I have done reality shows but not fiction.”
In the show, she is playing the main antagonist, an evil spirit, opposite Mona Singh and Vivek Dahiya. “Vivek and Mona are sweet. I have a great chemistry with Mona. We immediately started chatting on the first day. I think it is a Punjabi connection between me and Mona. Vivek encourages me. There are no hassles and we all help each other in whatever way we can,” she said.
Maheck opted for the negative role because she finds such characters more interesting. “I think it is more fun playing a bad girl. I think this is pretty interesting to watch. This is also one of the reasons I said ‘yes’ to the role. I have done a lot of negative roles and when I did my first one in Wanted, it was appreciated,” she said.
Asked if TV is moving back to the regressive state where they are promoting superstition, Maheck said, “No,I don’t think so. People are making TV shows on each and every subject. It depends on what you are interested in. Had it not been the case Naagin would have been a flop show.”
Produced by Ekta Kapoor, Kavach...Kaali Shaktiyon Se will air on Colors from June 11.
