'Kahaani...' success will last me a lifetime: Sakshi Tanwar

Mumbai, March 11 (IANS) One of the most successful actors of the small screen, Sakshi Tanwar never expected her career to blossom in the way it did after "Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii". She says it's enough to keep her going.

"I had no plans of even reaching here. I have been very blessed and god has been very kind to me," Sakshi told IANS in a group interview.

"I never thought that after 'Kahaani...' there would be such a jump. The kind of success I saw with 'Kahaani...' it's enough for me to last a lifetime," she added.

Produced by Ekta Kapoor's Balaji Telefilms, "Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii" ran continuously for eight years and Sakshi as Parvati became a household name.

Her current show "Bade Achhe Lagte Hain", again produced by Ekta, is equally popular.

She will be seen soon in Ekta's "Ek Thhi Naayka", a supernatural TV series made as part of "EK Thi Daayan" promotional campaign.

Sakshi is trying horror genre for the first time.

"I think there have been shows in this zone, but this is the first time I am entering the zone. I am hoping that I get to experience those thrills while shooting as well," she said.

The eight part TV series will focus on different elements of a "daayan" (witch) which are shown in the film.

"The actor in me jumped to the proposal. Our show is totally different from the film. It will highlight different aspects of a daayan," she said.

Post "Kahaani...", Sakshi took about two-year bream and whe she came back, she made appearances in shows like "Devi" and "Balika Vadhu".

"You just have to wait for the right time...I have been fortunate to experience a wide range of characters. What more can an actor ask for?" she said.

She wants to keep experimenting with her roles irrespective of the medium.

"As an actor I would like to portray as many characters, which are different from each other and as challenging. The medium should not make a difference. An actor needs to reach out to his or her fans through whichever medium he or she can," said Sakshi who will be seen as Sunny Deol's wife in the forthcoming movie "Mohalla Assi".

The actress, who started her stint on the small screen as as host of "Albela Sur Mela" in the 1990s, says even after spending so many years in the TV industry, she feels like a newcomer.

"I feel like a newcomer everyday. Even now, when there is an important scene, I keep messaging Ekta (Kapoor) till she gives me a narration. I hope that till the time I am working, I am as honest and as sincere to my work as I was on day one," she said.

Contented with her career, she said: "I am happy with the space I am in today. TV is the reason why I am Sakshi Tanwar today. And I will always owe it to TV. I will never cut myself away from TV," she said.
