Television actress Aishwarya Sakhuja says she is very conscious about her choice of roles, and she prefers characters which project women in a better light.
She is also not for characters which promote discrimination and any superstition.
The actress who will be seen in the web series “Sarabhai vs Sarabhai: Take 2”, told IANS here: “I think most of the content of Indian television caters to the audience of interiors rather than the urban crowd. So many shows are based on women discrimination, superstition, black magic… But as an actress, I am quite conscious about my choice of roles and pick those that show women with respect.”
“I may not be a part of all the hit shows of television, but I am content with my work,” added the Miss India 2006 finalist.
Having started her career on television in 2010, Aishwarya acted in serials like “Saas Bina Sasural”, “Main Naa Bhoolungi” and appeared in reality shows like “Nach Baliye 7”, “India’s Dancing Superstar” and “Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi 7”.
Asked about her experience of being a part of “Sarabhai vs Sarabhai: Take 2”, which is coming on digital platform Hotstar, Aishwarya said that she is very excited. It is the second season of the hit show “Sarabhai vs Sarabhai”.
“In my entire career, I have never got an offer for any role. I always had to audition to bag a role. This is the first time when our show’s producer JD sir (Jamnadas Majethia) called me saying, ‘You will be playing the role of Sonia’. It was very surreal as I used to watch the show throughout online just to refresh my mood as we all know the show is funny and entertaining,” she said.
According to Aishwarya, performing with great actors like Ratna Pathak Shah and Satish Shah helped her to improve her acting.
“When I went to the set on the first day, I felt a pressure to perform well. But what I realised is that I cannot match their level of performance, so I started observing them and learnt a lot. But everything was on a happy note, as we know that’s the vibe of the show.”
“Sarabhai vs Sarabhai: Take 2” will start from May 16.
