Deepika Aggarwal, who was last seen in the TV show Meri Awaaz Hi Meri Pehchaan, is all set to enter Saathiya 2. The actress will play the role of a fashion designer in the show, which has Sneha Jain playing Gehna and Harsh Nagar essaying the role of Anant.
Deepika said, “I am coming back on TV after a gap of four years. My last project was a TV show titled Meri Awaaz Hi meri Pehchaan Hai and it was a finite show. It was great working with Amrita Rao and Deepti Naval in the show. I kept busy doing music singles and I did get a few offers for web shows but they were not what I was looking for.”
She added, “I am happy that I have landed a role in Saathiyaa, it’s a popular show and audiences enjoy such shows. I am playing the role of a fashion designer and my character will be extremely stylish and glamorous. I hope that audiences like my role.”
Ask Deepika what she feels about the content on television and she said, “I hail from a small village near Chandigarh and had to fight many battles to travel to Mumbai and make my way into showbiz. I am too young to comment on the content but I feel that television gives opportunities to newcomers and that’s the best part of the medium. It also has a great reach and when you land a role in a popular show, people see you and your work gets noticed.”
Deepika does not believe in restricting herself to television and idolises Bhumi Pednekar and Parineeti Chopra. She said, “I am looking for roles that will challenge me as an actor and explore my talent. I really like what Parineeti Chopra and Bhumi Pednekar are doing. Hope I can also do similar roles in future.”
