Other than her show Hitler Didi, Rati Pandey has been in the news for her link-up with actor Anas Rashid lately. The actor was upset with the hullabaloo the media created, with a recent report insinuating the alleged couple’s break-up. Anas had gone on record to say he won’t marry an actress, as he would’t want his family to suffer taunts from relatives.

Since the actors have never admitted being together, it was weird to see Rati getting worked up about the reports in the first place. But the actor maintains her stance, and says, “We are very upset about it. The media presented his quotes in a wrong fashion.”

In this interview we prod Rati for details on her dream man and about her work on TV.

What kind of man would you like to marry?

A man who I can depend upon.

In marriage, would religion matter?

My parents’ consent is very important. They have to like the guy I choose. I can’t marry with my parents being upset.

People think you are arrogant. What do you have to say about that?

People who know me don’t think so. And those who don’t know me don’t matter. Despite being labelled as arrogant, I am still around and doing well.

What similarities do you have with your character Indira in Hitler Didi?

We both are family-oriented, strong-headed, short-tempered, but I don’t hit people or throw chappals at them. I’m bubbly while she’s not and I can handle things with a cool head, unlike her.

Your show has been under the scanner for low TRPs.

It has become an experimental show of sorts as we tried to do a lot, but didn’t get time for stories to develop properly. I don’t care about TRPs. I’ve seen shows go off-air within months, yet we are doing well.
