- Though she has a successful acting career in films, she regards TV as her ‘first love.’ Talking about it, she says-
I enjoy doing TV shows more than acting in films. There are no restrictions, and more importantly, I can be myself when I am hosting a TV show. It does require a lot of energy, but I see it more as an extension of my personality. On the other hands, acting in films is also challenging, because you have to focus on the character you are playing, and more often than not, you end up playing mature roles.”

Director of an established TV channel had to persuade my father for six months. He kept saying ‘no’ and one day when we were in Tirupati, my father once again got the call from the TV crew. Finally, my mother had to convince him by saying ,’ Perhaps, it’s god’s will that our daughter should test her luck on TV.’ That melted his heart, and here I am, juggling between films and TV.”
