Weekend Exclusive | More than the destination the journey has been more beautiful: Mona Singh
So Adgully caught up with one of the bubbliest and chatty Mona Singh to know more about her journey and her career so far.
Telling about her journey so far, Mona said, "The journey has been amazing. More than the nation the journey has been more beautiful. It is my 8th year in Mumbai and I never thought that I will get so many opportunities to be a part of so many shows and here I am today doing season 4 of Entertainment k liye kuch bhi karega and I am also known as an anchor. I love it when people recognize me. I am getting to do what I loved to do and always wanted to do. I can't thank enough people for what I am."
When asked about her association with SONY, she stated, "My association with Sony has been wonderful. Right from the time of Jassi jaise koi nahin they have been looking after me like a little baby. Even when I was very new in Mumbai I did not know how to go about it, they were the ones who helped me with my accommodation. I was in a dilemma that once the show gets over whether I have to go back and start with a fresh but it was SONY who signed an exclusive contract with me and I must say that I have done the best shows with this channel so the association have been so beautiful."
On asking like what convinced her to go for a role of "Jassi' wherein you were the ugliest character, she explained, "I believe in one thing which I read in a book by "Richard Branson' by the name "screw it lets do it'. So you have to take the risk and have to do it. So from there I thought that yes I should go for the risk to look ugly as a protagonist in my very first show. Basically I knew that whether it will be a mega hit or it will flop very badly but it will not be anywhere in between. So I moved ahead taking the risk and I am glad that I took the risk."
Signifying her roles as an actor and as an anchor, she says, "Both the lines are totally different and cannot be compared. As an actor it gives me total satisfaction so as to perform in front of the camera, to play a role and take different challenges everybody whereas as a host it is very important to be yourself and which people find very difficult to be but I am pretty comfortable in being my own self and I enjoy doing that, I enjoy being informal while in a show. I enjoy being mad, funny, stupid just to entertain my audience.
Explaining about so as how will be the season 4 of Entertainment ke liye kuch bhi karega, she told, "It will be very nice. We will be having Salman khan. You will also see me playing a role of a Sikh boy in one of the episodes, Bharti will also be there playing the role of my brother and we both will be seen going mad. I think as a host this is the only platform which gives you an opportunity to play different type of roles for entertaining."
