  • Actress Ragini Khanna who got fame from TV Show ‘Sasural Genda Phool’, speaks about her experience working with Actor Nazwazzudin Siddiqui
  • Being from the family of superstar Govinda, Ragini Khanna shares her thoughts on nepotism in the industry.

‘Yes, it exists for some for many. Eventually your talent and your hard work matters’, Ragini Khanna opines about nepotism.

Q1. Why have you been away from the industry for such a long time?
I’ve honestly not been away for a very long time, I’ve been around. I was just searching for the right script and the right project to come back with. I lost health post doing a lot of television. My priority was to keep my health in checkup work which was allowed by myself. Now I’m absolutely willing to take up work because now I’m in my perfect shape and body.
Q2. Do you think going out of work is common in the industry nowadays?
You’re never out of work, you’re constantly working. It’s just about the how much visible you’re in front of the audience. In fact, I feel being too much into the audiences life is also a bit of an overdose, nowadays, everything needs to be your space. Actors are in everybody’s space. I generally believe in having a certain amount of exclusivity. As a person, I want to breathe an actor in my constant life. I don’t want an actor to be on my social media, my Facebook etc. Agreed an actor needs to be everywhere but when he has the right film or the right TV show. I could be incorrect for many people who think actors should be constantly seen, but for me, it’s more important to be rightly seen. It’s always quality over quantity.
Q3. Being from the family of Superstar Govinda, what are your views n Nepotism in the industry?
Yes, it exists for some for many. Eventually your talent and your hard work matters. Skills, crafts and your passion. For me it’s not about getting launched or making a first impression, it’s about longevity and sustaining and if ur not here for long enough then ur not good enough.
Q4. Being an actor which medium is more effort consuming, TV or Cinema?
TV is extremely physically consuming. you’re bound to lose your physical strength especially if you’re doing your daily soap. Because times constraints are too hectic. It’s extremely painful and exhausting.
Q5. Any plans to come back in the television industry? Of yes, What kind of role you would like to play?
If I get the right show, director and script, why not? I never differentiate between the mediums. For me, it was always content over the medium.
Q6.How was your experience working with one of the finest actors in Bollywood Nawazuddin Siddiqui?
My experience of working with Nawazuddin was phenomenal. He’s a very good actor and a better person to work with. He’s humble, sincere and genuine which is ideal to have all these qualities in your co-actor.
Asking about her upcoming projects, Ragini Khanna told NewsGram,’Really can’t speak much about it right now. I haven’t signed up anything. Nothing is official to speak about the project I’m considering or being considered for.’
