Mumbai: From playing a cunning Pam in 'Shararat - Thoda Jaadu Thodi Nazaakat' to becoming a protagonist in 'Niyati', Simple Kaul has come a long way in her career. The television actress feels that, to achieve success, it is important to stay focused on what you want to do.

"Consistency is very important. When you do one show it should not be that you do a show and then leave it. You have to be focused. There are times when you might not have work for months or you might be getting similar roles. But it's the consistency which takes you further ahead," Simple told us.

Simple is a prominent face on the small screen and has been part of shows like 'Kkusum', 'Ye Meri Life Hai', 'Twinkle Beauty Parlour' and 'Saas Bina Sasural'.

She will now be seen in a cameo on SAB TV's popular show 'Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah'.

"I love doing a cameo as the entire story revolves around you and also you know when will it start and finish. You know you will not be there for the entire year, soon you will be free. You get a new team, new people, which is always interesting," she said.

In the show, Simple will play the role of a rustic girl from Kashmir, who is Jethalal's (played by Dilip Joshi) first wife.

Kaul, who hails from Kashmir as well, is really enjoying playing the role.

"I am very excited and happy because I have always thought about why I don't get a Kashmiri role. I was so happy when the producer gave me an option of being a Kashmiri. Moreover, there are hardly any Kashmiri characters in television today," she said.

Having done both serious as well as comic roles, Simple said she enjoys playing comic roles the most.

"When you are performing, I enjoy comedy more. You can do much more. The set of actors (in a comedy show) are talented as everyone can't do comedy. There are people who do something new, they just don't say the lines. You get to learn a lot. It's a happy feeling to work with a good bunch of actors," she said.

"I also enjoy doing roles which have strong content, a woman of substance. I would want to do that," she said.

The actress is looking for something interesting after 'Niyati' and 'Taarak Mehta....'.

"After 'Niyati', there were a couple of shows happening, but then I was not interested in doing the same thing. As of now, this came up and I did it. After this, if something exciting comes up I will do it but I won't pick up a role just like that," she said.
