Ishita cool with no-dating clause
Actor Ishita Dutta, on the clause that she and her TV co-star were asked to sign
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.
