Excerpts from the conversation that followed:
Could you take us down the storyline of Ragini MMS Returns?
The web series comprises a lot of horror, sex, fun and drama. The audience should wait and watch.
How did you get this role?
I auditioned for this part. I have worked with Ekta Kapoor before. I have been part of Pavitra Rishta (Karishma’s TV debut) and Yeh Hai Mohabbatein. I also have featured in Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 and then went on to do a web series titled Life Sahi Hai.
Your role in Ragini MMS Returns is drastically different from the roles you have essayed in the past. This involves a lot of skin show…
(Cuts in) Obviously TV will not have skin show, right? This is precisely why digital medium is gaining ground because we can express however we want to. This is the only “expressive” medium for actors, directors and producers.
Were you uncomfortable doing the bold, intimate scenes?
We (actors) are like soldiers and the director is the colonel. Whatever he tells us, we follow. It’s a part of your job. We all get intimate in real life, so I don’t get what’s the big deal if you do the same in front of the camera. Frankly speaking, I am very comfortable in my skin.
The posters are extremely bold. Did you really pose backless?
What was your parents’ reaction to you doing such a risqué web series?
My parents believe in what I am doing. They are very supportive.
What’s next after Ragini MMS Returns?
I have already shot for a film titled Hotel Milan which has Kunaal Roy Kapur in the lead role and is directed by Vishal Mishra. The venture should hit theatres in December or January next year. Apart from that, I am looking forward to signing more films.
Will you go back to TV?
As of now, I don’t see that happening. I am keen on doing films and web series. I am reading a book called Mata Hari and would love to play her in a movie. It’s my dream role, you could say.
How are you going to position yourself? Have you hired a PR agency?
It’s a strategy. Can I please keep it a secret?
