She was last seen on the small screen as a pas­sion­ate re­porter and as she gears up for her next show – a cos­tume drama – ac­tor Kri­tika Kamra (above) says she never fol­lowed a set pat­tern with her roles.

“I’ve played a doc­tor, a work­ing woman, a re­porter. I’ve tried to break the pat­tern with every show that I’ve done. It’s not to prove any­thing to the world but to my­self that I can take up any chal­lenge. I con­sciously want to break some pat­terns. I want to be known as an ac­tor, who can do dif­fer­ent things on dif­fer­ent medi­ums,” says Kamra.

The ac­tor, who feels that the herd men­tal­ity in tele­vi­sion needs to be changed, says, “I’ve al­ways be­lieved that tele­vi­sion has space for saas bahu, his­tor­i­cal show, mythol­ogy, fic­tion and fan­tasy. So, there is some­thing for all.

The ac­tor, who has been part of TV shows such as Ki­tani Mo­hab­bat Hai and Jha­lak Dikkla Ja, says, “Un­for­tu­nately we get into the habit of fol­low­ing a trend. I want to be part of a show that is break­ing the men­tal­ity. Whether it works or not is a com­pletely dif­fer­ent thing, but an ac­tor should not stop at­tempt­ing some­thing new and that is what I do.”
