Mumbai, Sep 25 (IANS) Helly Shah, best known for playing Swara in “Swaragini – Jodein Rishton Ke Sur”, says she will only act in films if she likes her character and not because of a co-star.
“I don’t have anyone special in my mind with whom I would like to debut with in Bollywood. For me, the most important thing would be the character that I would get to play. If I like it, then only I will do a film. It can be with anyone,” Helly said in a statement.
She does have some favourites in Bollywood though.
“I like Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra a lot. But I don’t copy them. I just look and enjoy their work. I feel Alia has started doing some really nice work.”
Sandeep likes juggling acting, garment business
Actor Sandeep Arora, who has done mythological shows like “Mahabharat” and “Siya Ke Ram”, enjoys acting as well as involving himself with the garment business.
“Acting is my passion, so I enjoy doing it a lot. But for an actor, sometimes it’s difficult to get work throughout the year. So, I run my business too. It’s fun and I enjoy both the professions. I have a garments business in Surat,” the “Mahakali – Anth Hi Aarambh Hai” actor said in a statement.
“So, I am either in Mumbai or Surat. But mostly I handle it from Mumbai itself,” he added.
Meghna Naidu finds social media a difficult platform
Actress Meghna Naidu says she finds it difficult to handle a social media account because sometimes fans get abusive.
The “Kya Kool Hain Hum 3” actress has been doing regional cinema and even featured in TV shows like “Sasural Simar Ka” and “Fear Factor – Khatron Ke Khiladi”.
“Recently, one of my fans wrote about wanting to see me in a Bollywood movie. He commented on my posts, praising me but abusing other Bollywood actresses. He called them, ‘white skinny b*****s’. And when I corrected him and told him to talk with respect, he got sarcastic. Such behaviour makes it difficult for us, especially me to handle a social media account,” Meghna said in a statement.
“I would like if all my fans respect other actresses as well and not compare me with anyone. I feel that we are all doing our work and all of us have exclusive talents,” she added.
