Actor Kritika Kamra says she prefers content-­driven projects over ‘saas-bahu ­dramas’.
“When I’m associated with a show, I want to be a part of something that I would enjoy ­watching. I can’t be a part of something that drags. I don’t enjoy the saas-bahu dramas... I don’t watch them,” says the actor who has ­featured in shows like Kuch Toh Log Kahenge and Kitani Mohabbat Hai.
Kritika feels there is an ­audience like her that is constantly looking for different content on Indian ­television. “And there is such less content to choose from,” she adds.
The actor, who has essayed the role of a doctor, been a ­narrator for a cyber crime show, and is ­currently seen as a journalist in a TV show, says that she enjoys playing a ­variety of roles, as it helps her to “learn something and get to be a part of a new world, re-invent and be different.”
The 26-year-old stresses that her motive is to be in shows which are high on content, rather than being high on TRPs (Television Rating Points). “I want to be a part of shows that are remembered for the quality of content and not remembered for the TRPs.”
Her ongoing show Reporters, in which she is seen alongside actor Rajeev Khandelwal, is soon going to get over. “It was supposed to be a finite series,” says Kritika, who is glad that the show is finite, as “it comes to a logical conclusion and doesn’t go on for years, with the story ­getting dragged.”
