Reality shows are like crash courses, says actress Sana Saeed
Actress Sana Saeed had a dream Bollywood debut in Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol-starrer “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai” in 1998. But the “Student Of The Year” actress says she will never “back out” from the television industry as she feels TV projects, mostly reality shows which she describes as “crash courses”, have given her a lot of opportunities.
Initially, Sana did some fiction TV shows like “Babul Ka Aangann Chootey Na” and “Lo Ho Gayi Pooja Iss Ghar Ki”. She then tried her hand at reality shows such as “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa” and “Nach Baliye”.Asked about it, Sana told IANS: “I feel that as an actor, these (reality shows) are crash courses for us where we get to learn dance in three months.”
Who will teach me 18 dance styles in three months and teach me 10 hours a day? Reality shows are the best way of growing. For instance, ‘Fear Factor’ made me fearless as an individual’.She doesn’t like to take up daily soaps as she feels they would restrict her from doing other projects.So, I don’t look at TV as stress. I see it as a lot of growth. These are all things that I have been able to accomplish on television. There’s no way I would back out from a medium that has so much to offer. Every house in every village has a TV. You get to connect with such a wide audience,” she said.
