Having done multiple TV shows over the past eight years and now two back-to-back OTT series, Agra’s daughter Aparna Dixit is excited about the kind of experimental roles that come her way.
During her recent visit to Lucknow, where she filmed both series, she said, “No matter what you’ve done before, you have to expect this new job. After playing the lead role in different daily soap operas, I’m very happy to be able to play some really strong roles that challenge me as an actor.
Glancing at the roles she tells: “First, I shot for ExIt where I play a very strong cop character, while in Sabse Bada Rupaiya I play a very raw character of Gudiya who also has shades of gray.
Coming to Lucknow over and over again, she feels right at home. “I shot two web series in Lucknow in a row. Shooting here is like shooting in the middle of your family. I am from Agra but I have the same feeling here. Just like my hometown, the food in this city excites me a lot because I am a big foodie. Plus, I’m not one of those actors who is going to starve or go on a diet. I like to try different things and believe in exploring local cuisine. Then ultimately it’s up to you to check the serving size and then burn it. “
the Bepahan Pyaar the actor was last seen in a television series Pyar Ke Lukka Chuppi.
“OTT as a medium is different from television. Firstly, it’s a short filming format and you can have fewer scenes but they are very effective. However, I like both mediums and I don’t differentiate. Many times people now ask that you have done three shows and therefore are not going back to TV. But, for me, I started my journey with daily soap operas and television will always remain very special platforms. “
Earlier too she did an OTT series Without fear. “The series has worked well, but being on a popular platform also makes a difference. So, as an actor, you have to keep experimenting with different platforms. Currently, I love my time on the web, but I am also open to TV. The only thing is that the content has to be good. I’m the kind of person who can sit in an ideal way and luckily there are so many brand recommendations and content creation options that keep me busy.
