Yesteryear's Bollywood actress Vidya Sinha who has given hit movies like Rajnigandha  and Chhoti Si Baat is making her comeback to acting after a long hiatus, this time on TV with Balaji Production's soap Kaavyanjali.

When asked about her long break, Sinha said, "I did not want my daughter Jhanvi to be brought up by servants and I did not hire any servants. I brought her up singlehandedly as I did not want to miss out on her upbringing."

"We then went to Sydney, Australia and I came back some time ago. At the moment I am only doing Kaavyanjali  as it takes up all of my time and there is no time for anything else," she says. She spends most of her time with daughter Jhanvi who is studying in Std XI at the Dhirubhai Ambani International school.

She says she took up the role of Dida in Kaavyanjali  because she was very happy with an elaborate production house like Balaji.

Vidya Sinha has hit movies like Rajnigandha  and Chhoti Si Baat to her credit.

Sinha said she found nudity in some of the Hindi films really shocking. "In our times we too had romantic scenes but they were dealt with with a lot of sensitivity, but some of today's films are so bold that they can't be seen with our family and kids."

On the upside she found a lot of technical improvement. "Our films have also become very tech savvy," she says.

Her favourites, she said, were television serials Buniyaad, which she still watches, Balaji soap Kasamh Se. Among films she said she liked to watch Bimal Roy's Bandini starring Nutan, Pati Patni aur Woh and Choti Si Baat. And she said her favourite co-star was the late Sanjiv Kumar with whom she has acted in the most number of films.
