Not at all as if I am east, Tapu is west. We are totally opposite to each other. Initially I didn’t like as my character was becoming negative but now I love it. Even the audience are appreciating my work on screen.
2. How well do you gel with your on screen partner Iccha aka Tina Dutta?
We are very good friends and have all the masti on the sets. I am very talkative and it’s difficult to catch me if I am in fun mood. I just listen to my director Nandita mam as I am scared of her. We are enjoying ourselves in Uttaran.

Actually I never thought of acting. I always thought of becoming doctor or air-hostess. Also I thought of becoming a chorographer as I love to dance. It all started when I was learning classical dance. My guru told me about a bhojpuri film. I went there and met the people. That is how I got the opportunity.
5. Are there any plans to go back to Bhojpuri films?
If there is any good script coming up my way, I would definitely go for it. Not many people know that my 2 Bhojpuri films have got national awards too. I would also like to do a Bengali film.
6. What do you normally do in your free time?
I go out with my friends or be with my family. Even if I have more time then I pamper my self in a spa. As I am bit health conscious I also spend my time in the gym busying toning my self and listening to the songs which I enjoy the most.

It is yet to come. The day I get married and pregnant will be the most memorable moment of my life as that would be the time when I’ll enter in the new world which will be very different and an exciting journey for me

Basically I want each and every luxury on earth and enjoy life to the fullest.
