TV Serial ChandraNandni’s Shweta Basu Prasad on co-star Rajat Tokas: He’s a dedicated actor but is NOT a friend


Talk about one lady who believes in calling a spade, a spade in the Television industry and we have the beautiful Shweta Basu Prasad. The very poised lady doesn’t believe in mincing words and talks her heart out.
The lady while talking to us revealed on her journey as Nandini, her equation with co-star Rajat Tokas and why she will never be a part of Bigg Boss. The national award winner (for Makdee) also spoke about Zaira Wasim’s national award win and how she is happy seeing Sakshi Tanwar’s reel-life daughters make her proud.

How has the journey been?
It’s fantastic. It’s already been six months to the show. It’s amazing because its very different kind of show. Both acting wise and personally too I have learnt a lot. So it been really great.

How is the equation working with Rajat Tokas?
He is a very dedicated actor but he is not a friend. A very good actor. But on sets, our conversation is strictly limited to our dialogues and nothing beyond. We aren’t friends. But we work as a family but the two of us are strictly professional is nothing more I talk to him about.

What was the biggest challenge?
It is a historical character. The biggest challenge was the body language. Getting it right was definite no doddle.

Tell us something about your real life partner, Rohit.
Rohit and I are in a relationship and are happy but I would not want comment anything on my personal life as of now.

Zaira Wasim who won National Award for Dangal seems to be on cloud nine. You too have gone through the same feeling once. How does it feel as a child actor when you are honoured with such a prestigious award?
Firstly, A Very congratulations to Zaira. She deserves this win. I am sure she must be realising the win right now because I too had realised how heavy and important this felicitation is. I think, once she grows up, she will have a huge merit to her credit. To hold that merit, to hold that ward of a nation’s honour, it is such a huge thing. She will understand this once she is grown up.

How does it feel to see TV actors making a mark in Bollywood?
It is great to see TV actors making a transition from TV to big screens and playing important roles. I am very happy.

How was it being a part of Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya?
It was a great feeling to having worked with such a huge banner. I am looking forward to doing many more films. I have been getting offers. But I am looking forward to people call me and give good roles.

Having worked in both mediums, TV despite having a larger reach is considered to be inferior to Bollywood at times. What is your take?
No, I don’t feel it at all. Not at all. No medium is inferior. Every medium is small be it a TV, Theater, Bollywood and web series.
As long as you do good work, it shouldn’t matter.

Are you open to doing reality shows?
Well, I can talk about it only when I am offered. But No Bigg Boss for me. I can ever do it and I myself prompt people not to watch it because I fell it is a very negative thing. But I would love to be a part of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa.

And Nach Baliye?
Well, for that you will have to ask Rohit, she quipped.
