Amrita Rao who played the lead in a recently wrapped TV series opened up about her small screen experience and why her respect for television stars has grown. She also revealed that though she has not been on her honeymoon yet, there is one on the cards.
Meri Awaaz Hi Pehchaan Hai recently came to an end. How was the experience?
I had developed cold feet initially when I was about to dive into the `daily soap pool' because of the horrifying stories at I had heard of TV actors practically living, eating and sleeping on the set. But Bollywood actors do get many fringe benefits on TV . Like, my contract said 10 hours including hair and make-up, which is luxurious by TV standards. We shot in schedules, the way we do in films because we shot in real locations rather than a fixed set, so the production team also needed a day off for the recce. The concept and my role gave me an incredible rush throughout. They say you are not a TV actress unless you have fainted on set, but I was determined to defy that.
Are you looking at doing more TV shows?
I would love to do fiction shows but only finite ones. I'm convinced that finite fiction is the future of Indian television and you will not have endless shows where the story and characters are minced based on TRPs. Episodes will be shot in advance, making it possible for a director to give his overall finishing touch to it. Actors will not be married to the set as I'm sure weekends will be declared a holiday. The golden phase of fiction shows too will come soon.
On the personal front, you've not been able to go on your honeymoon because of your busy schedule...
That's right (laughs). We have been incredibly occupied with our work schedules, but it will happen soon.
How much has life changed since you got married?
A lot has changed, and definitely for the better!
