So, excited about your first film?
should release sometime in August.
But do television actresses click in movies?
I can't speak for the rest but personally, I see no difference between TV and film. It's all about showcasing your talent.
How was it romancing former Indian Idol Abhijeet Sawant?
He doesn't have a background in acting. He did his homework before the shoot. So it was smooth sailing.
Shouldn't you have been launched with a bigger star?
It's a trend to have fresh faces in movies today I'm. sure we will be accepted. Abhijeet and I share great chemistry.
Any steamy scenes?
(Laughs) Are you kidding? I play a simple, girl-next door.
Anyway, steamy scenes?
What was it like re-entering
Bhabion Star Plus?
It was a homecoming of sorts. The TRPs rose as soon as I was back. Unfortunately, the channel and production house yanked the soap off air. (Shrugs) There wasn't much I could do.
You're filling in for the lead in
Waqt Bataayega.. Kaun Apna Kaun Paraya too
Yup, I play the fake Rudra. It's a fun cameo.
You've also been roped in for Smriti Iraani's
Yes, but I can't talk about it. I play a rich, pampered girl.
What sort of a boss is Smriti Iraani?
She's really cool. We yak a lot in Gujarati.
Are you paired opposite Iqbal Khan?
Nope, I play his brother's (Yuvraj Malhotra) love interest.
And romance in real life?
I'm married to my career for the moment.
