Erica Fernandes is happy that her debut TV fiction has been received well by the audience.

Not everyone is comfortable playing mother on screen. Erica Fernandes is one of them. The 23-year-old who plays mother to a six-year-old girl in Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi, says she’s still not convinced about essaying the role.

“On screen I didn’t want to become a mother so soon. So after the leap, I was not at all convinced about playing one, that too in my first TV show. The news came to me as a shock. But I thought of giving it a try. To tell the truth I am still not really convinced playing a mother. I am taking time to get into my character,” says Erica. She hopes that people don’t typecast her as a mother and she gets to explore different characters.

Happy with the way the show is garnering good response from the viewers, she says that she is thankful to God, that her debut show has touched a chord with the audience. The show also stars TV heartthrob Shaheer Sheikh.

“After having acted in films down south, I always wanted to work on the small screen but couldn’t say yes to everything that was being offered to me. The whole saas-bahu drama is very clichéd. I feel there’s already too much of that on TV. So I was waiting for something like Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi. The show offered a fresh and interesting plot,” adds the actor.
