Re­mem­ber the stir caused when ac­tors Ishita Dutta (right) and Vat­sal Sheth were made to sign a no-dat­ing clause for their TV show? Well, Dutta says she didn’t mind the clause at all, even as many oth­ers re­acted say­ing they would’ve been un­com­fort­able with it. “I didn’t think too much about it. I just found it funny, but agreed to sign it. The mak­ers must have faced an is­sue be­fore, which is why they wanted us to sign it. Any­way, I’m not here to date, I’m here to work,” says the ac­tor, adding: “I re­spect other ac­tors’ opin­ion on it.”

Although many ac­tors feel that since they spend most of their time on the sets of their shows, it’s im­pos­si­ble for them to find love out­side, Dutta dis­agrees. “I be­lieve that if some­thing has to hap­pen, it will hap­pen. If I have to be with some­one, all it will take is one con­ver­sa­tion. Of course, it’s tough to main­tain a re­la­tion­ship like this, but it can be done,” she says.

Mean­while, the ac­tor who worked in the film, Dr­ishyam (2015), says it’s “dif­fi­cult” to get a break in the film in­dus­try. “It all de­pends on luck, des­tiny and the hard work you put in. My first show (Ek Ghar Banaunga) is what got me the film and my cur­rent show,” she says.
