Mumbai, Dec 30 ‘Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai’ actress Pragati Mehra has shared why the entertainment industry might take a little longer than others to regain its glory after being struck by the pandemic.
“Last two years have been tough for all and everyone is bouncing back, so is the entertainment industry, but in my opinion it might take a little longer to regain its glory as it doesn’t fall under the ‘essential’ category. Hence, the government is taking time to lift all the bans and the audience is treading with caution too,” she explained.
As an actor, she has had some special moments. “Well special is that I sincerely like what I do. But in terms of roles, I haven’t yet been offered something that’s given me a special feeling. And personally, without make-up and get-up, I still do not get recognised, so nothing special or extraordinary comes my way because I am an actor,” she said.
Popularity wise, ‘Uttaran’ made a difference in her career. “This is followed by ‘Chhoti Bahu 2’. A show I really enjoyed working on besides the popular ones of course, are ‘Bal Gopal Kare Dhamaal’, ‘Sunaina’ and ‘Bombay Talking’,” she shared.
Her career goals still remain the same — to be cast in that “fabulous role in a hit show or film!”
According to her, satisfaction in the acting field never happens. “If it did then one would like to retire as an actor,” she said.
She also wishes her fans a peaceful year. “Give up useless hustle. Invest your time and resources in things and people that matter, have mattered in the past two years. Have a healthy and peaceful year,” she said.
