She’s pretty, cute, bubbly and beautiful. Kiran Dubey’s flawless features make her grab all the attention whenever she graces the small screen. After interesting roles in serials like Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin and Kyunki Saans Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, Kiran will now be seen in Jet Set Go (on STAR ONE).
Born in Gorakhpur, Kiran spent the better part of her life in Dehradun with dreams to become a writer. But life had other things in store for her. "Though we humans wish many things, God decides what we would be good at. And in my case, destiny decided I should act, says the actress. So from Dehradun, she landed in Pune to complete her graduation, a couple of years ago.
In 1994, on her friends’ insistence, she took part in the Miss Pune pageant. "The pageant was a confidence booster as I was adjudged the first runners up,” says the actress. Cameo roles to beauty pageant to modelling and then television, Kiran has made the swift switch slowly and steadily.
She made her television debut in 2001 with Sansar on ZEE. Since then has done she has done many cameos in serials like Sansar, KSBKBT, Kkusum, Kya Hadsaa Kya Haqeeqat, Ssshh…koi hai, Shayad Tum,Kalki, Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin, Siddhant, Special Squad and Miilee.
“I am really looking out for various interesting projects that are coming my way. I have always preferred to accept challenges and that is how I became a part of this reality show, Jet Set Go".
I strongly feel the best is yet to come out of me. I believe that an actress should get her due from various filmmakers, who will tap the right talent to get the real nuances of the character."
What is it that she likes about the new reality show? She enthuses, “It is its unpredictability that makes the show such a big challenge. All four of us (Tasneem, Aashaka, Gurdeep and me) start at the same time and have to compete against time and luck.
The most difficult part of the show is to find a contestant in a totally unknown locality. But it’s all fun at the end of the day.” Passion and poise As for how she stands in comparison to the other anchors on the show, she is honest to confess, “Tasneem’s smartness is her weapon, while Aashaka Goradia is a very easy person, who can win contestants hands down with really less effort than all of us. Gurdeep Kohli is again very sweet and polite as a person".
"Coming back to me, it is my genuine passion that reflects on the show. This is what matters to me and my contestants.” A very spiritual person, Kiran believes, "We are all bound by our Karma and what one has to achieve, one will in one’s life."
So what has life taught her from the past? She concludes, "Life is beautiful but each time we only wish to highlight the bad phase of one’s life. Why can’t we change ourselves to dream something beautiful?" Well that’s one point few would argue with.
