Aarti Singh of &TV’s Waaris has created an impact in the audiences’ minds with her challenging lead role!!
However, Aarti’s tenure might come to an end soon, with the actor contemplating quitting the show.
Says Aarti, “After the leap and entry of Farnaz Shetty, my erstwhile lead track has been greatly reduced. To be fair to the makers (Ashwini Yardi), they had told me that with my on screen daughter Manu’s (Farnaz) marriage, the track will shift to her family. But I never thought that my role will be cut so much. You feel bad, but again the new track did rake in higher ratings and TV is all about numbers.”
Aarti who has just returned from a vacation has already served a notice to the production house. “They have asked me to hold on saying Amba’s character will make a comeback. So I am waiting. If something juicy comes along, I might then quit.”
Aarti has no qualms about playing mother again. “I don’t mind having 10 kids on screen as long it is a lead character.”
Here she dismisses the general notion that leads are mostly youngsters. “I got Waaris, isn’t it?. I am thankful to this show, for it helped me break out of the bhabhi zone post Parichay and Uttaran.”
Looking ahead, she is open to web series as well. “I like Alt Balaji type concepts.”
Would you be open to bold concepts? “Like I have said before, I will go bold only for Karan Johar. But I am out of work now; if something comes along I will take a call.”
Best of luck, Aarti!!
