Actor Ishita Dutta says that when she has to fall in love, it will happen automatically.

The no-dating clause which actor Ishita Dutta and her co-actor Vatsal Sheth were made to sign for their show Rishton Ka Saudagar – Baazigar, created quite a stir in the TV industry. Although many actors reacted to it, saying that they would have been uncomfortable with such a clause, Ishita says that she never had an issue signing it.

“I didn’t really think too much about this clause. The only thing was that I found it funny. But I agreed to sign it. I guess the makers must have faced an issue before, which is why they wanted us to sign it. But anyway, I am not here to date, I am here to work,” she says.

“But I know that everyone has spoken about it and I respect their opinion,” adds Ishita, who is actor Tanushree Dutta’s sister.

Although many actors feel that since they spend most of their time on the sets of their shows, it’s impossible for them to find love outside, Ishita disagrees. “I believe that if something has to happen, it will happen. If I have to be with someone, all it will take is one conversation. Of course, it’s tough to maintain a relationship like this, but there are always ways to manage,” she says.

Meanwhile, Ishita, who was seen in actor Ajay Devgn’s film 2015 film Drishyam, says that it’s tough to get a break in the industry. “I have to admit that it’s very difficult. It all depends on luck, destiny and the hard work you put in. My first show (Ek Ghar Banaunga) wasn’t a very big show, but that is what got me the film and my current show. But I have a long way to go,” she says.
