One of the most successful actors of the small screen, Sakshi Tanwar never expected her career to blossom in the way it did after the show Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii. She says it’s enough to keep her going. “I had no plans of even reaching here. I have been very blessed and god has been very kind to me,” Sakshi said.
“I never thought that after Kahaani... there would be such a jump. The kind of success I saw with Kahaani... it’s enough to last me a lifetime,” she added.
Produced by Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Telefilms, Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii ran continuously for eight years and Sakshi as Parvati became a household name. Her current show Bade Achhe Lagte Hain, also produced by Ekta, is equally popular. She will be soon be seen in Ekta’s Ek Thhi Naayka, a supernatural TV series made as part of EK Thi Daayan promotional campaign.
Sakshi is trying horror genre for the first time. “I think there have been shows in this zone, but this is the first time I am entering the zone. I am hoping that I get to experience those thrills while shooting as well,” she said. The eight part TV series will focus on different elements of a daayan (witch) which are shown in the film.
“The actor in me jumped to the proposal. Our show is totally different from the film. It will highlight different aspects of a daayan,” she said. Post Kahaani..., Sakshi took about two-year break and when she came back, she made appearances in shows like Devi and Balika Vadhu.
“You just have to wait for the right time...I have been fortunate to experience a wide range of characters. What more can an actor ask for?” she said.
