After a horrifying movie debut with Vikram Bhatt’s colossal flop,


, she’s ready to come back in a big way on the small screen. Nausheen Ali Sardar is expected to make her debut as a TV show producer this year.

When asked, the actress confirms and says, “Yes, I was toying with the idea for a while. Now, I’m ready to come back with a bang with my own production house. One of my friends is a partner in the business. I don’t want to name the person right now. You have to wait for another announcement.”

Genre connection
Though her production house hasn’t been named yet, the actress is quite clear about the kind of work she would like to do. “I will be producing all kinds of shows. I haven’t really thought about the genres. I guess it would all depend on the kind of ideas that come our way. It’s a pretty lucrative period on TV in that respect.”

Sardar, who made a noise as a model and then as the leading lady in Ekta Kapoor’s Kkusum on Sony, is also expected to make a comeback on the telly as an actress. She confirms that she has been offered two big shows by leading channels for projects that might kick off in summer this year, but says, “It will be too early to comment on the offers. Let them concretise first.”

A source, close to the actress, reveals though that the shows Sardar has been offered are expected to bring her back in a big way because they are plum roles. “The projects might kick off this April or May, if everything gets worked out well.”

Made mistakes
So would Sardar like to act in the shows she produces? To this, the model-turned-actress and soon-to-turn producer reacts, “No. I would act in something which takes less time from me, so that I can concentrate on my business better.”

When asked about her movie projects, Sardar, who debuted as a Scottish violin teacher, Anjani Dutt, in Three, admits that she’s made plenty of mistakes in choosing them.

She says, “I admit I didn’t choose my projects wisely. I was the queen of soaps and a top-rated model on TV. I had done 100 commercials before taking on Kkusum. I didn’t have anyone to guide me earlier. Now, I’m wiser.”
