Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

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.
