Ac­tor Krystle D’Souza (right) has come a long way since she made her de­but on tele­vi­sion with the soap Kahe Naa Kahe in 2007. Having tasted suc­cess with shows such as Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Ha, and Ek Nayi Pe­hchaan, she had a great 2016, thanks to her hit su­per­nat­u­ral show, Brah­marak­shas.

Does she want to tread the path that many TV stars have be­fore, that of films? “I’d be ly­ing if I said no. Yes, I am look­ing at movies and look­ing to grow. I want to do a good movie where I have the most im­por­tant or very good role. Six years ago, I’d have had a dif­fer­ent an­swer but to­day, I’ve cre­ated a brand for my­self. When I do a film, I want peo­ple to be spell­bound by it. If it isn’t a big bang en­try into films then it isn’t worth it. And, TV is the best! At least, I’m the queen here,” says Krystle.

As for Brah­marak­shas, her first su­per­nat­u­ral show, she says: “It worked out well and was some­thing new for me as an ac­tor, too. (Pro­ducer) Ekta Kapoor is like fam­ily. Work­ing with her was com­fort­able, as I started my ca­reer with her. But this show was a new ex­pe­ri­ence. Since I was re­turn­ing to TV after over two years, I was bit anx­ious. It was scary, but I had a lot fun do­ing the show,” says Krystle, who also learnt some be­hindthe-scenes tech­niques in the process.
