Known for shows like Kalash and Bepanah Pyaar, APARNA DIXIT loves experimenting with roles and genres. She speaks with MUSBA HASHMI about her latest show and how she has evolved
What is your role in Pyaar Ki Luka Chuppi?
I play Srishti, a small-town girl with values. She is extremely talented but when it comes to love and family, she is emotional and thinks only from her heart. Her satisfaction lies in little pleasures of life and is family-oriented who believes in success but not at the cost of relationships. A lot of people will find the character relatable.
One thing that you like and dislike about your character?
I love everything about my character. From being soft spoken to respecting everyone, Srishti is a love driven person and has no anger or ego issues. The only thing that I dislike is, how she allows people to take her for granted which she will start realising soon. With different experiences in life, she is now learning to take a stand for herself.
From Mahabharata to now Pyaar Ki Luka Chuppi, how has your journey been?
My journey has been beautiful. I have played some amazing characters in the past and made friends for life in this journey. I feel grateful to be a part of this industry which has blessed me in ways for which I can’t be thankful enough.
What was the most challenging project?
The most challenging project is also the one that is close to my heart — Kalash. I loved the graph that my character had. I got to play various shades and try different looks.
How do you think you have evolved as an artist?
An artist is always evolving. With every new character that you play, a new project that you do, you learn something new. You become better at the craft day by day. As an artist, I am always on the go to learn and explore new things. It is a never-ending process.
How do you think TV has evolved?
The last couple of years have seen an evolution in content with the shifting paradigm. Over the last decade, television has evolved progressively. The industry is witnessing a revolution by portraying strong independent female protagonists. Serials are being made where the conversation is around strong women characters. There are stories of empowerment of women from small towns and villages of India which are finally being told. Content on TV is progressively influencing the lives of audiences who are now readily accepting strong headed women who are finally speaking up for themselves.
Having explored different genres, which one did you enjoy the most?
Having played various characters over the years, daily soaps have been the most enjoyable to me as I get to dramatise all emotions and the situations and story lines are also quite relatable. I absolutely enjoy every bit of my time on the sets which makes me enjoy my work all the more.
A role that you would say no to.
I believe as an actor it is important to explore every role. An actor should never say never.
Currently, I am only focusing on my show Pyaar Ki Luka Chuppi which airs on Dangal TV. If you engage yourself in different projects at the same time, you tend to lose focus. Therefore, I want to concentrate only on this show first. Rest only time will tell.
