Vinny Arora is happy to be playing a role of her age, in Sony Entertainment Television’s popular show, Itna Karo Na Mujhe Pyar. Also, the girl gets nostalgic as she gets back to working with Sony TV as well as Balaji Telefilms.
In a conversation with Tellychakkar.com, Vinny who has stepped into the show as Nishi Jignesh Shah, replacing Rhea Sharma talks her heart out.
Vinny, this is your fifth show with Sony TV. Does it make you happy?
Yes, I have had a great association with Sony TV. My shows with them have really worked wonders for me – Kuch Is Tarah, Aathvaan Vachan, Shubh Vivah, Hum Hai Na, and now Itna Karo… It really feels good, and I can only call it a sweet co-incidence.
Also, this brings you back to the Balaji family…
Very true. They are such a nice team to work with, that I have been missing working with them. I am very much excited to be part of the Balaji family after Kasturi and Kuch Is Tarah.
Tell us about the pre-planning that you have had to go through to step into the shoes of Nishi?
Well, I have not done any sort of preparation. I am excited because I will be playing my age here. That’s the biggest plus that I can look forward to. I have a beautiful team to work with, and as always, have been bestowed with quite a few senior actors like Ronit Roy, Pallavi Kulkarni and Ashwini Kalsekar to share screen with. I know that I am going to give my best, and the rest will fall in place.
You have had a long career so far. So what have your learning been?
See, I started off really young. I did not attend any sort of class whatsoever. I learnt everything from the sets of my shows, and all that I am today is only due to the earlier experiences that I have had. I have always been blessed in the aspect of getting a chance to work with the nicest of co-actors. Same is the case in Itna Karo too.
Which has been your best role so far?
Well, I will say that the role in Aathvan Vachan is the best I have got till now. Having said this, there is certainly more to come and I feel I deserve a lot more (smiles). I have a long life, as I started early.
In Itna Karo, the story will now focus on the problems of a married woman in conceiving and becoming a mother. Are you ready for this mature role?
Yes, I know for the fact that Balaji Telefilms will beautifully show the various situations and circumstances that a woman will go through post marriage. I know of various friends and acquaintances who have gotten married at an early age. Also, since I fall into the same age group as that of my character, I feel I can relate to the situations and adapt to it on-screen.
What do you think of the track ahead where Nishi will be shown to be going for an IVF treatment (In-Vitro Fertilization)?
Well, Indian TV will always have shows made for the family. So even if the subject is bold, they will have to show it in a very subtle way. And I know that Balaji has the knack of putting across even the complex situations in a very subtle and beautiful way.
Vinny, we wish you all the very best…
