The hot-looking Nehha Pendse, who had impressed one and all with her flirty performance in SAB TV show, May I Come In Madam, takes the going off air news of her latest show, Partners: Trouble Ho Gayi Double, on the above same channel, in her stride.
“Today was the last day of shoot. I enjoyed my bit, which turned out be interesting and sweet.”
The last episode will air in late September.
Nehha, who has been around for years, doing TV shows and films (Hindi, Marathi and South Indian), had entered Partners mid-way.
“There was no proper female lead opposite Vipul Roy & Kiku Sharda, and the existing actress could not deliver due to reasons better known to the Producer. That is why I was brought in to revive the show, which I did.”
When pointed out that Kishwer Merchant had gone on record to say that the makers (Paritosh Painter) had replaced her and Shweta Gulati, and yet numbers did not get better, she says, “I did not replace anyone; my character, Chamku, was new.”
“As to ratings, these things are very subjective and cyclic; they did go up a tad in the last two weeks.”
“I don’t really pontificate on what went wrong. Neither do I let success (May I Come In Madam?) go to my head either. When working, I give it my 100% and use the in-between period for other stuff, like rejuvenating myself and connecting with family and friends. My life is not only work, you see.”
“I take the abrupt ending of Family Time With Kapil Sharma in the same vein. I was disappointed, but then these things are not in my control, right,” she adds.
Looking ahead, Nehha is game for meatier roles in Marathi cinema. “My last film, Natsamrat, was a hit, but I did not have much to do in it.”
She is also game for bold web series. “My only issue is that very few desi makers have the required aesthetics to not make it look cheap. Bold, if presented right, can be the most powerful media performance.”
Way to go!!
