HOLLYWOOD BOLLYWOOD TELEVISION MUSIC ‘FREEDOM TO CHOOSE WORK IS SATISFYING’
After films and TV, actor Sakshi Tanwar’s next stop is the internet
She started as an anchor, moved into acting in TV shows, made her Bollywood debut with Dangal and now features in a web series. Actor Sakshi Tanwar (left) loves how her successful 16-year career in Indian showbiz has lend her the freedom to choose the pace, nature and medium of work she wants to do. She says that nothing is more satisfying than having this choice. “An actor reaches a stage where he has the freedom to choose work irrespective of the medium. And that is what we are enjoying right now because we have given so many years to our profession and it’s the most satisfying phase where you can choose what you want to do.”
For Sakshi, it is mostly a “one thing at a time” policy that works best. She says, “I could never handle more than one thing at a time. I give whatever I can to one project as I can’t run from one set to another or pack in more than I can handle. So, in between the shows, I take long breaks.”
As of now, the much-loved Parvati bhabhi of Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii fame is enjoying the plunge that she is taken into the web series space which is unknown to her. “I’m exploring a new medium and territory. I’m not on social media and I don’t know how things happen there, and I am not even a user of apps. I’m very bad with technology. I use my phone as a phone, and sometimes as a camera,” she adds.
So, what’s next on the plate after the series? “There are offers, but those can wait. If they are meant for me, they will wait. If they are not meant for me, no matter how hard I try they are not going to come my way. There is no point stressing about work, I feel. Work is something you should enjoy,” signs off the actor.
