Shooting to fame and winning the hearts of television fans across the board in her roles in ‘Ishqbaaaz’ and ‘Sanjivani’, Surbhi Chandna has always been a fan favourite. Now taking her latest role in her TV career with ‘Naagin 5’, Chandna spoke to the media about her exciting new stint.
“As an actor, I have always tried to experiment with the work I do, be it the bubble girl (Ishqbaaaz) or the serious doctor (Sanjivani 2) and now, this is a fantasy world that I have never tapped,” India Forums reports the actress explained when asked about how the new series came about.
“I received a call about 3 months ago and I wasn’t sure if I will be able to do this. Balaji and I have been trying to work together for a very long time, be it the web platform or other times when I was not doing another show. And, every actor has it on their wish list to tick off Balaji, and we were trying to work something out. When I got the call, I did not know if or not I am the right person and that was that. It is a big responsibility on your shoulders and it is a big brand, and there is so much excitement around the show, even I had it for this season,” she went on to add.
With the ‘Naagin’ franchise being one of the biggest in TV, Chandna, like others before her, has received negative and positive feedback. When talking about getting trolled and how she deals with it, she expressed, “I don’t really read all of this and I always say that please maintain things, because that is the kind of person I am – fun, happy, peace, and all these things bothered me earlier, when I newly started. However, now I feel that people are sitting around and while some will say good, some will say bad, but you cannot say anything to everyone and they are entitled to their opinion. If someone tries to stop me from saying something, they cannot do that.”
Working with the likes of Mohit Sehgal and Sharad Malhotra who are already established actor with a long line of work behind them, Chandna spoke about what it’s like working with them. “Mohit and Sharad come with their experience, I am the new one here, it is fun and they impart a lot of knowledge. It is a happy team (touchwood) and we have just begun, gradually, we’ll get comfortable with everyone!”
