Small screen 'witch' wants to make audience laugh

New Delhi, Mar 2 (IANS) TV actress Simran Kaur Bhalla, who plays an evil spirit in the show "Anamika", is keen to try her hand at stand-up comedy. She feels it takes away the stress from an actor's life.

"I am dying to do stand-up comedy. It's fun. We actors live a stressful life. So I feel if we do comedy, life would be more simpler," Simran told IANS.

In "Anamika", which airs on Sony TV, she plays the title role, and her character attempts to play havoc in a happily married couple's life.

She had a special reason to be a part of the show.

"I do what my heart says. I have set my own rules that I follow too. I left 'Na Aana Iss Des Laado' because it was getting too repetitive. I was not enjoying it. I am also very choosy about roles. I can't do anything or everything. It has to be exciting," she said.

Was "Anamika" exciting?

"I agreed to do 'Anamika' because here I am doing something I have never done before. It's challenging. I had to study about evil spirits and their existence," she said.

The Mumbai-based actress started her career with Star One's "Love Ne Mila Di Jodi" in 2009.

"I am born and brought up in Mumbai. I was always aware of how film and TV industry works. Honestly, I was never in favour of working for such long hours. During college, I did few advertisements and after that I auditioned for 'Love Ne Mila Di Jodi' just for fun, and got selected. The show changed my life," said Simran.

The actress shared that her fans still remember her as Roshni, her character in "Love Ne Mila Di Jodi", and often walk up to her for autographs.

"It was like a dream role. I played a girl who was rich, spoilt and sweet, and everyone treated her like princess," she said.

Having no godfather in the industry, Simran said she constantly tries to strengthen her position in the industry.

"I have never learned acting. I never did theatre. In my free time or even before a shot, I keep reading scripts and learn my dialogues," she said.
