Little Anjali of 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai' to do a lead role?
Q. Why did you choose television as your comeback medium?
A. I never really stopped acting — I was taking on work that I could do along with my studies. You need to dedicate more time to films. Cinevistaas (the producers of 'Lo Ho Gayee Pooja Iss Ghar Ki') told me that they would give me time off to attend my classes and a break during my examination. They also said that my tutor could come on the sets and teach me. This was really convenient for me, so there was no problem.
Besides the time factor, what attracted you to 'Lo Ho Gayee Pooja...'?
The character I’m playing is such fun. Pooja is so much like me. I have to come on the sets and be myself. When you are enacting comedy, you come to the set and have a blast. Being just 19-years-old, I like the role I’m playing — she is my age, fun and happy-go-lucky.
Q. Why did you stop acting in films after 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai'?
A. I was just eight when I did 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai'. Later, I did 'Badal'. I kept getting offers for films but I needed to study too. However, I did advertisements and a few roles here and there for television. The only thing that was and is holding me back form doing films is that I don’t want my studies to suffer.
Q. You worked as Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter in 'KKHH'. Do you dream about playing his heroine now?
A. There is no question about me not wanting to do so. Anybody would want to play Shah Rukh’s heroine (laughs). It will be an honour to work with him again.
Q. So what are you planning next?
A. I want to go abroad for higher studies. Later, I will decide if I want to continue acting and modelling. The acting field is very competitive, you always need a back-up.
