The actress is kicked to be a part of SAB TV show TV, Biwi Aur Main

More than the medium, the depth of a role is more important to me: Shruti Seth

Shruti Seth is looking forward to her new  SAB TV show… TV, Biwi Aur Main. She exclaims, “ I play the wife of a TV producer essayed  by my talented friend  Karan Mehra. The story centers around the comedy errors which happen when his  lives of a  small  screen producer and a family man clashes.   Poor thing tries to find a balance between his heroin ,wife and mother. The biggest USP of the show is that today TV has become an integral part of most families, we identity with a particular character and shows and most men also have wives, the plot if quite pertinent.  Also as we have kept the plot in a very relatable zone, I am sure  viewers will give this show  the same love and affection, as  given to other hit SAB TV  shows.”

Shruti, who has been around in TV space for the last 17 odd years,  keeps doing stuff, takes break and then returns to action.

I am a lazy girl (smiles). Honestly being happy as a model and an anchor, I did not want to do TV back in  2000, but then decided to try out Maan to see if I had the acting gene. The game completely  changed with  Shararat. I next  had high hopes from on  Sony,  but sadly it did not work out.  My next big assignment was hosting Comedy  Circus which went on for 17 seasons . The Shararat image was somewhat broken by another big hit The Suite Life of Karan & Kabir. All  in all  I have been lucky to have been able to choose memorable shows which have leftindelible marks in people’s lives.”

Here  Shruti accepts that she has been kind of tagged as the funny girl, “No one offers me something else.”

This kind of typecasting is one more reason that Shruti has stayed away  from cinema, “ After Rajneeti, I started getting similar kind of characters, ditto with the  khadoos wife character in  My Friend Twinkle.  I  don’t hanker for the medium, as an actor I need juicy roles be it theater,  cinema, TV or the new age digital medium ,” she ends.
