Having graduated from Delhi University, she did a lot of modeling and fashion shows there. But Mumbai was her dream station, where she did quite a few hit serials like 'Kya Hadsa Kya Haqiqat', 'Vaidhehi', 'CID', 'Ravan', "Jane kya Baat hue' 'Nagin' and ‘Mahim Shani Dev Ki' before she got the plum role in the mega serial ‘Yahan Main Ghar Ghar Kheli'.

Excerpts:

What's your role in Yahan Main Ghar Ghar Kheli ?
I am playing Aloknath's married elder daughter. Smita Jayker is my mother. Ours is a traditional family and our father has named all his sons and daughter starting with a Swarna. We live in Swarn Bhanvan.

My husband business is not going well and we ask my father (Aloknath) for Rs 25 lakhs. Later, I find that my father himself is under heavy debt. Now I what I do that is the central part of my character. I love both my father and my husband a lot.

You have played Rani Madan lekha, queen of Raja Vikramaditya, role of ...... in Mahima Shanidevi and Sita's role in Ravan. In Yahan Main Ghar Ghar Kheli, an absolute turnover of the role form mythology to family drama. What do you say about it?
I can live without food but I cannot live without acting. As an artist I am always on the lookout for good roles. So, by moving from Mythology to Drama I am just expanding my acting horizon. Till now, I have played Sari clad bahen-type role.

Now I am more interested in playing lead roles with modern outfits with shirt pants, Salwar Kameez and jeans. If I get a chance, I will love to do a college going girl.

You have worked only for big banners, like Sagar Arts, Rajshree and CineVista. Is it a deliberate move?
It is true that I have mostly worked for big banners, but it is not a deliberate one. I would like to work for any banner if the role is good and is made for a good channel. We have seen many production houses like Swastika, Chhota Ganpati have come up with quality serials which brought them on par with big and established production houses. Now, no one is big or small, it is all their work is.

Do you believe in God?
Yes. I believe in God, but I believe in Karma most. I work with heart and give my 100%. It gives me satisfaction.

How do you spend your Sunday?
If there is no shooting, I sleep a lot and eat lot, go to watch a movie. On Sundays I like to pamper myself.

Don't you go to gym?
No, I am not a gym-freak, though I do Pranayam, Yoga and Meditation. It helps me to be fit from inside.

What about doing films?
It is a different world and not my cup of tea. I would rather do good works for TV.

What is plan for future?
Acting and acting. To do good works so people remember me by them.
