You have stayed away from fiction shows. What prompted you to take up a Kawach — Kaali Shatktiyon Se?
I had a taste of TV with Bigg Boss, which changed my life. It made me a household name. Everywhere I went, people knew me. Even when people were casting me for a song in the movie it was easier. Everybody watches TV, but not everybody watches movies. However, I didn't want to do a saas-bahu show, it is not my cup of tea. I want to juggle films and television, so if I wanted to try a fiction show it had to be something that would be for a short-term. I found my role in Kawach interesting — I play a sexy, seductive, dark character. Also, it is a finite show. With Ekta, who is the star of TV, I knew I was in good hands.
There were reports that you won't be doing the show because you met with an accident...
