The wait for a strong character is what keeps Sara Khan away from the small screen.
Sara, who was last seen in Santoshi Maa Sunayein Vrat Kathayein followed by her participation in the reality show, Lock Upp, is back to the fiction genre with Spy Bahu. Speaking to a leading daily,
“My character has a lot of shades and her entry will result in major twists in the storyline, as she will wreak havoc in the lead couple Yohan (Sehban Azim) and Sejal’s (Sana Sayyad) lives.”
Of late, the actress has picked up negative characters mostly. Ask her if she misses playing the quintessential bahu on TV and she replies,
“You play a bahu in a couple of shows but after that, the makers rope you in their shows to introduce major changes. Also, your image undergoes a change with time. Also, when you break away from the image of a TV bahu, you get an opportunity to play with your character graph a lot more and enjoy liberty in terms of looks and performance.”
While it is not easy to join a show midway, Sara takes the challenge head-on every time she enters an ongoing family drama. She shares,
“Everything on television, including your track in a show, depends on the audience’s feedback. That’s why some shows run for long while others wrap up in no time. So, you take a chance always. Joining a show midway requires more hard work. However, I strive to play the character so convincingly that people relate to it. I have become confident with time aur phir mehnat karne ke liye motivation bhi milta hai.”
The actress, who catapulted to fame with her debut show, Sapna Babul Ka…Bidaai, adds,
“I definitely miss the thrill of being a part of a show since its inception and working hard towards forging a connection with the audience. It’s not just about me wanting to do it par aisa show milna bhi toh chahiye uss time par. No TV artiste can ever become indispensable. Jab tak aapka show chal raha hota hai aap superstar hote ho aur jaise hi khatam hota hai aap wapas newcomer bann jaate ho.”
On the work front, she will also be seen in Mohit Chauhan’s next song. And the talented actress will also be doing a podcast.
