Toral Rasputra: I might have to take a break for another year because of this crisis
Uncertain about when things will resume and how it’s going to be like post the pandemic, the actor says everyone has to wait for things to get normalUpdated: Jun 02, 2020 17:35 IST
Actor Toral Rasputra was in talks for a new TV show before the lockdown and was very hopeful about it but due to Covid-19 , everything has come to a standstill.
Uncertain about when things will resume and how it’s going to be like post the pandemic, Rasputra says, “We’ll all have to wait for things to get normal, stay positive and continue to work on ourselves. I don’t know if the project is going to be the same or the makers and the channel might change their strategy. I’ll have to wait and watch.”
After the lockdown gets over, the challenges are going to double up for those who have lost their jobs including the daily wage earners. However, Rasputra, 32, says it won’t be much of an issue for actors, who were already shooting their TV shows before the lockdown. “They know that they still have work to go back to. But for actors like me, who don’t have any show in hand right now, we don’t know when we’ll get to work on our next project. The year 2020 is going to go like this only and I guess most of us will skip one year from our career,” she explains.
Even with the ambiguity, the actor has no qualms about having a break in her career.
“I might have to take a break for another year but I’m okay about it as I’m used to the fact that not all actors on TV will have work all the time. There have been times when I’ve taken breaks purposely because the work wasn’t that good, and sometimes I didn’t have any work coming my way. This happens to all the actors and we all are used to this,” Rasputra says.
The actor hopes to get back to work soon but is conscious to not take up anything in a hurry or just for money. “I want to take up something sensible because these days, to get a good TV show and a character is very difficult. I’m okay to wait till the time I get my kind of project,” she says
