Nalini Negi calls herself a fluke actress
Actress Nalini Negi, who is currently seen in Siddharth Kumar Tewary’s Porus, is a household name today, but not many people know that she never planned to enter showbiz.
Nalini says that it was her first show, Laut Aao Trisha that motivated her to be a permanent part of this profession. “I started my acting career in this industry very early. I have always said that acting happened to me by fluke. I never planned to be an actor. I got my first break with a very good show, where I played the lead role. I think after that show I realised that there is some part of me which loved being in front of the camera and the fame that came with it,” shares Nalini.
The actress has been part of multiple shows and says that she loves all of them. “The projects that I have done till date are very close to my heart because all my shows were different from one another. Each show helped me enhance and enrich my acting skills,” further adds Nalini.
She is playing the role of Vishkanya in Porus and says that she loves being part of the show. “I am very happy, of course, who doesn’t want to be part of this show? But, I think, apart from being part of a hit show, I am very excited because this is the first time I am part of a costume drama. Being an actor, I always feel that you should keep experimenting with your characters. When you get a chance to play something different or challenging, you must take it up,” she says.

The actor feels that the platform has immense promise and was waiting for the perfect project to come along. “I have been waiting for a good break in the digital space because it’s a space which has limitless reach. As an actor, I wanted to be sure of taking up something where I got to deliver. When I got the opportunity to work with Mr Vikram Bhatt, I grabbed it without a second thought,” says Vikas Grover.
When asked what he loves binge watching on TV, Vikas shares, “I love thrillers as well as comedies where web series are concerned. I’m waiting to watch Raah De Maa and have been the biggest fan of Breathe on Amazon. Romil & Jugal also gave me goosebumps.”

I love religious trips as they refresh me and give me a lot of energy and good vibes. This trip was especially amazing,” says Pranitaa.
“I have visited a lot of holy places before like Jyotirlinga temples and Shakti Peeth is in my bucket list as well. I visited Mahakaal a few months back too,” further adds the actress.
In fact, the actor adds that she likes to go on one of these religious trips every time she gets done with a show. “After every show, I visit holy places. It has been a custom that I have been following for years.”
“I think it’s very important to be religious and have blind faith in some power. It is your faith that keeps your values intact,” she says.
Pranitaa adds that Shiny and she share a great bond and are perfect travel partners. “It’s really important to travel with someone you get along with. It’s the best experience and it’s very important to unwind. I know Shiny for almost three years and we share a great bond.
