Why did you choose a TV show when the digital space is emerging as a promising platform?The content stood out. 'Haasil' is a thriller, a genre less explored on television. Producer Siddharth P Malhotra had a clear vision about how my character would develop. This was refreshing, given that in most shows, you don't know how your role will pan out. Also, the fact that it is a finite series was another draw.
Soap plots are tweaked according to TRP ratings they receive. Does that bother you?Not particularly. If my producer decides to pay heed to the ratings and cater to the public, it is beneficial for everyone. I cannot be selfish and say, 'let my track continue'. But the audience has always been kind, showering love on my characters.
What can viewers look forward to in 'Haasil'?It's a brilliant story that marks Zayed Khan's television debut. The production value is at par with international standards. Also, it is fast-paced and is certain to keep people at the edge of their seats. We are also often surprised with the developments [in the script]. It is a thriller with a love story at its crux.
Given that you share a friendship with Khan, was it odd to play mother to him?It was odd. We would burst into laughter every now and then. We were a riot on the set, but would get into character soon as the camera rolled.
Buzz is that your role in 'Haasil' is based on Nita Ambani.Yes, the persona, character and power is akin to Nita. The brief given to me stated that I had to look as graceful as her. Nita comes across as a dignified person, but you can sense the power in her personality. That is the kind of persona my character Sarika has. I did use her as a reference for the role.
