She will always be television's good girl
I want to become a Bollywood actor someday but on my conditions. I will never do an intimate scene or wear revealing outfits, and if I get such a role, I most definitely will not do it," says television actress Muskaan Mehani who was in Indore on Tuesday to promote her show 'Bhai Bhaiya aur Brother' in which she plays the role of an NRI.
Her role in the show is in direct contrast to the ones she has done till date in shows like 'Ring Wrong Ring', 'Jugni Chali Jalandhar' and 'Dil Mil Gaye'. So, Mehani was unsure of accepting it. But, she did it when she was promised a complete makeover which would keep her original 'good girl' image intact.
"The character I play has a western upbringing, but she still has the sanskars of India. I had a lot of trouble getting accustomed to her accent though," she shares with After Hrs, adding that she does not mind experimenting with diverse roles.
Mehani has been working in the entertainment industry since 2004 and for now wants to continue with daily shows. "TV has given me a unique identity and I value it too much to let go of it for anything. I won't mind working for Bollywood someday but television will always remain my first priority," she confessed.
Talking about further projects, Mehani revealed her plans to do reality shows, both as a participant and anchor. "I want to explore the television industry more and hence won't mind trying my hands at such offbeat shows. I have a few offers but nothing is confirmed yet," she ended.
