03/12​Rashami: I used to initially make fun of these supernatural shows

I used to initially make fun of these supernatural shows naagin, daayan, chudail. But you can’t deny that you fantasize about a lot of things which are not believable. A lot of people like watching this supernatural stuff about super humans, naagin and dayan, they enjoy this world. There are people who wish to have super powers, super bikes or being a superhero like Batman, Superman, all these are a part of fantasy. Naagin is also based on fantasy, plus it also has a beautiful story. So, it always keeps the viewers hooked to the show. Being part of Naagin has been a very different experience for me, technology wise it is also very different. As an actor I also have the liberty to perform and I also get variation to perform. The fun part is we have to visualise things and perform. People love watching the show which is like icing on a cake. (Photo: Instagram)

04/12​On reruns of her successful shows like Dil Se Dil Tak, Uttaran and Bigg Boss 13

It feels nice that all my old shows and now Naagin are running on the channel (laughs). I am lucky that all my shows have done well and now they are running again. I think I am very lucky that all my shows were different. Be it Uttaran or Dil Se Dil Tak, as an actor I feel blessed that I have done different kinds of work in my career and have not restricted myself. When I did reality show, I tried that I give my best. When I was doing these shows I never gave any thought but now when I am watching them, I have realised that I have done right kind of work. Also, it gives me a high, a kick to perform even better. I never watched my shows due to back-to-back shooting, but now I feel as an actor I have no limitation and I am like water you pour me in any vessel I will take that shape. I really want to lots and lots of different kinds of roles and I know I will do it. (Photo: Instagram)

Shehnaz was busy with her show Mujhse Shaadi Karoge, and even I was busy with my show. We haven’t got a chance to speak to each other, but it is her choice who she wants to be in touch with. I was always there for her in the BB 13 house and in real life also if ever she needs me, I will be there. I have never expected anything in return from Shehnaz and will ever do in the future, it’s fine if she doesn’t want to talk to me. (Photo: Instagram)

10/12​One the lockdown period

Luckily, I have gone through this phase as I was in lockdown in the Bigg Boss 13 house, so this is not new to me. I know how to deal with it, it is different for my family, mother, brother and his kids. When they crib, I feel we never cribed being in the house to go home. I don’t know what God is asking from me, that I am again being quarantined for 21 days. Now, the entire nation is playing Bigg Boss, let’s see how they fare. A lot of people are asking how to kill time. My reply to them is why don’t you utilise the time to do something useful and beautiful. There are a lot of hobbies that you can pursue, there are a lot of bad habits that you can change. When things will get normal, you will miss this time. There are so many housewives, who don’t step out of the house, but even they are leading a happy life. So, why don’t you utilise this time and communicate, spend time with your family. You can start reading, meditating, there are online games, dance, start writing a diary. Sometimes, self company is also important. Indulge in self-care and self-love. (Photo: Instagram)
