Shweta Basu Prasad: Unlike others, I don’t waste time gossiping, taking selfies on sets

Actor Shweta Basu Prasad, who is seen in TV show Chandra Nandini, says she makes it a point to use her time between shots to do something productive, instead of just gossiping with her co-actors.

Actor Shweta Basu Prasad says she learnt a lot from filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who she has worked with in the past.

Shweta Basu Prasad, who rose to fame as a child actor in the 2002 film Makdee, has also been part of films such as Iqbal (2005), Darna Zaroori Hai (2006) and Badrinath Ki Dulhania (2017). The actor, who is currently seen in the show Chandra Nandini, says long shooting schedules have never been a challenge for her.

Ask her how she manages to do multiple things simultaneously, and she says, “I don’t think it’s about multi-tasking, it’s more about managing your time well. You have 24 hours in a day out of which you get only 16-18 hours when you’re awake. I try and make the most if it. Even when I am shooting, I have so much time between the shots. But unlike others, I don’t waste time gossiping or clicking selfies. In fact, I prefer doing something productive. So, I either read or watch something,” says Shweta.

The actor, however, doesn’t rule out the importance of interacting with her co-actors, and understands it well. “Of course, I talk to my co-stars and I goof around at times, but I try to do something fruitful as well,” says Shweta.

Talking about bonding with people from the industry, Shweta, who worked with filmmaker Anurag Kashyap as a script consultant, says she got to learn a lot from him. “I used to read scripts and review them for the production house. I think my biggest take away from Anurag was to just chill. He is completely a no-nonsense person and is great to work with. He is one of my closest friends and has been so supportive. I am looking forward to work with him again,” adds Shweta.
