TellyChakar contacted Aparna Mishra and asked her how she won the role and her dream character.

When you were offered the role, what was the one thing that attracted you to the character and how did you land the role?

Almost 3 years ago I was on vacation, and the reason I said yes to playing the character was that this character didn’t remind me of anyone but myself

Moreover, there was no possibility of saying no because everything looked like a dream combination: the name Balaji, the Kumkum Bhagya show, Sriti Ma’am and Shabir Sir. Getting the chance to be part of something so massive was a once in a lifetime opportunity.

And without even thinking, I said yes. To this day remains the best decision of my life.

You have been associated with Kumkum Bhagya for a very long time. How was the experience?

The experience was amazing and the best part is that I wake up every day thinking about how much fun I’m going to have. The amazing people on set make my life so much better. The entire cast and crew is nothing but amazing.

Are you ready to do web series, and is there a limit to an actor when it comes to doing daring scenes or roles?

An actor’s job is to have no inhibitions, so any web or TV shows and movies that come my way that will help me grow as an actor and as an individual, I will say yes.

Do you have a dream role in Bollywood and a dream director or actor you would like to work with in the future?

Every good meaty character I see, I want to do. So that changes as I evolve watching new cinema. Likewise, there are such great players in the industry that I would really love to work with.

For example, I never imagined working with Sriti Ma’am and Shabir Sir, but here we are. Now that I have worked with them, I would like to work with them all my life.
