Back after a long sabbatical

I had not a planned to take a break from television,” says seductive Sangeeta Ghosh who was a popular face on the small screen but suddenly disappeared. While most thought that the reason is her marriage, Sangeeta clears the doubts now!

“I told myself that the day I need to stop working, I will. I was totally neglecting my personal life and had no time to even talk to my parents. My sabbatical was not strategised, just because I was getting married,” clarifies Sangeeta who started acting at the age of 10.

It was the hectic schedule of television industry that made her take a break even though she was extremely popular among her fans when anchoring Nach Baliye. “If you are working for 12 hours, you have to invest much more time – which gets consumed in
dressing and travelling to the location. Till now I have always done lead roles so it was becoming too much for me to leave home at 7.30 am and reach home at 11.30 pm!”

Popular as Pammi and Muskan, Sangeeta feels happy, “when fans recall me with the character’s name and talk about the serial,” she confesses in between the shooting of her current show Kehta Hai Dil Jee Le Zara on Sony. Though she plays an older character in her comeback serial, she says, “it wasn’t a conscious decision.

“When I was doing Desh Me Nikla Hoga Chand, I played a double role – one of which was one with grey hair. So, this is not for the first time that I am playing an older character. Its the simplicity of the whole show which is very believable and relatable to many
working women.

In love with love stories, Sangeeta is happy that this show will also have a love angle later. “I love romances and feel there is romance in everything,” says the actress who is seen portraying love stories mostly.

“I am very lazy and not greedy in life but I think I should be,” she says when asked about trying her hand in cinema. “I would love to do films but want to do justice to my work in television at present,” she says adding that “participating in reality shows is too much stress and hats off to them who do so but I don’t want to be judged. Anchoring is a different story,” she signs off.
