I am debuting on TV."
"People have been asking me why I chose such a complex character. I have always been ready for challenges and experiments and the role of Roshni was a challenging one hence I decided to challenge myself and hope the audience love Roshni," she added.

"But having said that, I have tried to get into the skin of the character, put in cautious rather extra effort in preparing for the same so as to understand the depth of her angst and the motive behind her actions however, having said that mostly. I try to react spontaneously and live in the moment trying my best to act Roshni in the best possible way."
"Honestly, it took me some time to adjust to the situation of playing a 'saas' in my very first venture but as an artist. You should always be ready to accept roles that are beyond normalcy or close to bringing something different to what you assumed or perceived but I guess this is the beauty of being an artiste wherein you are put into the situation over and above your comfort zone thereby giving you an opportunity to learn the craft more efficiently and effectively," the debutante concluded.
'Chashni' will be airing from March 9 on Star Plus.
