I don’t act to run my house: Ankush Arora
Mumbai, July 25 (IANS) Actor Ankush Arora says he doesnt wish to work just for money and is more concerned about experimenting as an actor.
“I don’t act to run my house. I am choosy when it comes to any character I sign for. It should be a combination of everything — romance, action, drama and comedy,” Ankush said in a statement.
“I love experimenting with myself. These days, the television (industry) is growing for men too, because now ‘saas-bahu’ dramas don’t work much. Youth is attracted to romance,” he added.
Ankush was last seen on screen in Zee TV show “Yeh Vaada Raha”.
For his next show, Ankush said: “I am looking for something extraordinary. I’ll wait for the strong script, which should challenge me and take me to some different zone to experience.”
He is also open to doing films.
“I am looking forward to films as they are concept oriented and music albums too. I am coming up with a song. Playback singing is my passion.”
Disha listens to all my nonsense: Ridhi Dogra
Actress Ridhi Dogra, who is often seen at loggerheads with actress Disha Parmar in TV show “Woh… Apna Sa”, says the two gel up really well off screen.
She says since Disha is a good listener, she listens to all her nonsense.
“My character Nisha is a really tough one. She is an evil woman whose one and only aim is to have things her way, and is a complete control freak who schemes and plots and places material needs above emotional ties.”
“Disha plays Jhanvi who is a far more conventional heroine. So, we are pitted against each other on screen,” Ridhi said in a statement.
She added that off camera, their chemistry is different.
“We are always laughing and especially when there are scenes where we have to be at each other’s throat. Since Disha and I are from Delhi, we feel at ease in each other’s company.”
“I love to talk and Disha is a sweet listener, she listens to all my nonsense. It’s good fun hanging out with her on sets. Despite having such a stressful onscreen relationship, we both end up having so much fun and she is a wonderful friend,” she added.
Disha, who is sharing screen space with Ridhi for the first time in the Zee TV show, said: “Within no time, we’ve become great friends. She is a darling and I share a very special bond with her.”
“When you have such lovely co-actors, you look forward to shooting every day. Apart from being a great co-actor, she is an amazing human being too. I get to learn so much from her. Thanks to my show that I’ve got such a wonderful friend.”
