Oc­cult, para­nor­mal and ab­nor­mal. Those three words best de­scribe the TV trend to­day in the coun­try. What’s more, there are more such shows in the pipe­line. Talk­ing about the trend, Sana Sayyad, who is all set to be part of one such show and was in the city pro­mot­ing it, said, “Yes, sud­denly such shows have taken over our TV sets but we should not for­get it is the mat­ter of de­mand and sup­ply. So you can say ev­ery­thing is fair in the en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try.”

Sayyad was last seen in the show ‘Papa by chance’, “That the present work be­ing done be dif­fer­ent from all the other work done that is what I try to do. Also, play­ing a cer­tain char­ac­ter, for any show, one has to give his or her hun­dred per­cent.

Then I have al­ways and will al­ways be hon­est with what I get to be in a show, or maybe films, in the fu­ture. I made a foray into TV with a re­al­ity show and slowly act­ing hap­pened so I’m in no hurry to do ‘Hatke shows or roles’. I just want to go with the flow.”

The bub­bly ac­tor has a Luc­know con­nec­tion. “Yes! Luc­know was my ma­ter­nal grand­par­ents’ house and so we came here dur­ing all va­ca­tions and what a time I had. Also, the food here is my favourite in the coun­try and I can con­tinue hog­ging what­ever I can get my hands on. Chaat and ke­babs are my first love.” Talk­ing about her new show and char­ac­ter, she adds, “The show is called Divya Dr­ishti for StarPlus. It is a beau­ti­ful nar­ra­tive of two sis­ters who are blessed with ex­cep­tional power, of be­ing able to see and change the fu­ture. Pro­duced by Fire­works Pro­duc­tions and Mukta Dhond, the show traces the two sis­ters, who have been sep­a­rated but hope to re­unite with each other soon, and this mo­ti­va­tion keeps them go­ing. The show will go on air soon and all of us are keep­ing our fin­gers crossed.”
