Actress Ekta Sharma makes a comeback on the small screen after working at a call centre for almost a year
Actress Ekta Sharma who has been missing from television for a while has been working at a call centre as she was not getting acting offers. Now according to the latest updates, the actress has got back to showbiz. The actress has bagged a pivotal role in the show Mann Sundar, where she plays a mother.
The actress talked about it during a recent interview and shared, “Day one on the set made me so happy. Watching the creative team, co-actors, technicians, cameras… everything made me feel like I had come back home. I have been missing this so badly.” So has she taken a break or quit her call centre job? She says, “Acting is my first love and I was not happy working at the call centre. Since I had no choice, I had to join it. After working there for almost a year, I was planning to join another company. I resigned from the call centre in the last week of September and whe I was almost ready to join another company, I got a call from the team of Mann Sundar. Actually I had auditioned for a role and had forgotten about it. When I got the call, I was so happy. Finally, I am doing what I loved the most.”
Ekta is essaying the role of Shivanshi Das’s mother, who is the negative lead in the show. Playing mom to a grown-up doesn’t bother Ekta. She said, “I have done it earlier in Bepanah Pyaar. Even playing a negative role does not bother me. I may not relate to a character, but yes when you portray such a character you should learn what never to do in life and also learn to differentiate between good and bad.” Sharing more about her role, she adds, “I come to this family as I want my daughter Anchal to get married to the hero and want his wife to get out of the house. Anchal and I keep planning and plotting against her.”
Ekta is known for her role in popular shows like Kkusum, Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, Kamini-Damini, and Bepanah Pyaar.
