Mona Singh made her small screen debut with the popular show, Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin, in which she played the titular role. She talked about the challenges of a career in television and how she shot even when she was ill and gravely injured.

Before Mona began shooting, the makers of Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin and the channel told her that she would get two days off in a month. At the time, she did not understand what that meant.

In an interview with Pinkvilla, Mona said that she was there in almost every scene of Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin, as she was playing the lead role. As a result, she would ‘never get a break’, she added. She also talked about not comprehending what having two days off in a month meant until she actually began shooting.

“When I started to shoot, I realised, ‘Oh my God, TV is very tough.’ You have no right to fall ill also. Even if you are ill or dying, the telecast has to go. You have to shoot, no matter what. There was a doctor on set, taking care. There were some days when I had a drip on me. There was an accident which I went through. A light fell on my head, I got stitches. There were many things I had to face during Jassi which were very challenging but I was happily still doing it,” she said.

She will be seen next in Advait Chandan’s Laal Singh Chaddha, starring Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan in lead roles. She earlier worked with the two in Rajkumar Hirani’s 3 Idiots.
