On being offered Anupamaa
The offer happened to me all of a sudden and very quickly everything got finalised. I was excited about it and my journey from accepting the role to actually start performing it was very quick. I am very happy to be a part of Anupamaa.
Journey on Anupamaa
The journey on the show has been pleasant. Initially, it was a journey of adjustments like it is for any actor who is going to a new set or doing a new character and I tried to do my best and do the scenes in the best possible way I can. Be it understanding the way of working of my co-stars or creating a certain chemistry that is required. So it’s been quite a busy journey but a pleasant one.
Anupamaa is doing very well and it is a legacy show
As an actor you try to choose projects either they are doing well or have something great to offer. Of course, Anupamaa is doing very well and it is a legacy show and everybody wants to be a part of a legacy show especially if the character has a track with Anupamaa the namesake of the show and Anuj. So, my character Shruti is right in the middle of both of them. My character Shruti has her own importance and charm. It is a good role and it is a show which is watched by everyone and it will be good for me. I have been part of so many other legacy shows before this also which are still remembered even 12/15 years after they went off-air. I know the importance of being a part of a legacy show.
On watching Anupamaa
I watched Anupamaa when it was launched to be very honest. I have been travelling the entire year and was at various places so I can’t say I was an avid watcher but as an actor I was aware there was going to be a leap. Everyone knows that it has almost been continuously on the top or at least in the top 5 most watched shows on Indian television. When you know they are going to take a leap and introduce a character which is going to be associated with Anuj and Anupamaa both, then it’s important to be aware about such developments.
