MUMBAI : ‘Dil Hi Toh Hai’ actress Ashmita Sood, who plays a negative character in the show, ‘Janam Janam ka Sath’, said that she loves being part of it.
“I think the title of the show ‘Janam Janam Ka Sath’ is very apt because it brings out the exact idea of what the story is about which is reincarnation. I like the title a lot. The story of the show revolves around three characters, and is about love and hate. It’s a story about how life has transcended overtime and there are things and emotions that have still been carried over to the next life,” she said.
She added: “I will be seen in a negative role for the very first time. This time, I thought of experimenting a little where I am making life difficult for the lead actors because I am a very possessive person.”
However, Asmita doesn’t associate much with her character, she said: “Honestly, I don’t relate with my character because she’s negative but there are some possessive things that I might accept if I was in a relationship in real life too. I guess we all have little of Trishala in us. It might not be that intense but I guess we all are possessive for the people we love. But this was what made me sign up. The graph of my character was what attracted me.”
She added: “Playing a lead role is a lot of responsibility, there is a lot on your shoulders. But, this time, I am not feeling any pressure because I am enjoying my journey. As long as all three of us enjoy the process, it’s going to be fun.”
Meanwhile, Asmita is not one to get affected by competition. “There’s a lot of competition but more than that is a lot of opportunities. There’s web, shows, festival films, regional films. The boundaries between all the mediums are blurring and it gives a lot of opportunities. So, I wouldn’t call it a competition but an opportunity for actors,” she concluded.
