Television beauty Pooja Gor took the nation by storm by her portrayal of Pratigya in Star Plus’ popular show Mann Ki Awaaz Pratigya. After gaining immense popularity, she never looked back. Post his impressive stint, now she is making waves in the digital space as well.
Pooja is elated being a part of a web series titled Bin Bulaye Mehmaan from the maverick yet marvelous web channel Shitty Ideas Trending. The faces of the venture include popular television stars, Chhavi Mittal and Karanveer Mehra. The creators are Chhavi and her husband Mohit Hussein.
“Karanveer is a dear friend. I saw some of their videos and they were amazing. Later, I met Chhavi and Mohit at a party and told them about my fondness for their web channel. Thus, things started rolling and I first worked with them on a show called Pyaar Ka Punch, and now Bin Bulaye Mehmaan.”
Pooja feels that the concept in Bin Bulaye Mehmaan is relatable and universal.
“We all have experienced such a situation wherein bin bulaye mehmaan aa jate hai humare ghar pe. We get so stuck as they don’t want to leave and become annoying.
The script is funny and the characters are well etched out. I am fond of situational comedy and Bin Bulaye Mehmaan fit the bill to the T.”
So have you ever experienced a situation wherein guests have landed up at your place uninvited? “Yes, of course, I think it’s quite natural. I remember once I was heading out to socialize when a friend asked for my company to spend some time post break up. I welcomed her but got stuck (laughs).”
So what does she prefer, TV or digital as a medium? “Both have their own pros and cons, however, digital has more freedom. TV has a lot of restrictions in terms of language, content et al.”
On an ending note, the lovely actress observed, “I hope to soon make a comeback on TV, however, I don’t want to just pick up any show for the sake of it. I have become choosey when it comes to signing a TV project. I will give my nod only when a character would challenge me as an actor.”
Way to go…Pooja!!!
