Un­like many Tv ac­tors, who even­tu­ally make their way to films or as­pire to act in them, actor Rid­hima Pan­dit (above) of Bahu Ha­mari Ra­jni Kant fame, is in no rush. Ask her if she’s mak­ing an ef­fort to bag a film of­fer, Rid­hima says, “I’ll em­brace it with open arms, if it comes my way. Cur­rently, I’m happy do­ing a Tv show. I got a film of­fer af­ter my Tv show gained an in­stant pop­u­lar­ity. But it would have been un­fair to leave some­thing that gave me my first break and the fame.”

She feels Tv of­fers a sta­ble ca­reer as com­pared to films and maybe that’s why she isn’t look­ing for a shift at present. “Tv is a much se­cure place than Bollywood. You’ve a steady in­come and can cre­ate your own niche. Task is to main­tain it and wisely choose your next projects, and not lose your stand­ing. The life of a fe­male lead actor on Tv is such that there’s no time for any­thing else,” she says.

While most ac­tors do mul­ti­task­ing, Rid­hima feels oth­er­wise. There’s no des­per­a­tion to run af­ter work. “I won’t push my­self to some­thing, which isn’t worth it. If I’ve to do some­thing, which is eye grab­bing, I’d love to host a show. That’s on my check­list,” she says.

What about par­tic­i­pa­tion in a show like Bigg Boss? “I won­der why Tv ac­tors vouch for it and look for­ward to it. I’m not spon­ta­neous, so can’t put my life on public dis­play. I’m a pri­vate per­son. De­spite be­ing on so­cial me­dia, I don’t see my­self in front of the cam­era all the time. I’ve mood swings and I con­trol them all the time,” she says.
