Pooja Banerjee: "I Was Told, 'Don't Get Married, Else You Won't Get Work'"- EXCLUSIVE
Pooja Banerjee, whom we are currently seeing in Kumkum Bhagya playing Rhea Mehra, is also playing Nivedita Basu in Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2. The actress who has made an exception by playing two different age groups at the same time has also managed to make a mark on OTT platform by doing two web series at the same time- Kehne Ko Humsafar Hain 3 and The Casino.

The actress is in a happy space in terms of work and feels lucky that she has been lucky to play the daughter of all handsome actors of TV. Talking about it exclusively to SpotboyE.com Pooja said, "I am playing daughter to Shabbir Ahuluwalia in KumKum Bhagya and before this Ronnit Roy in Kehne Ko Humsafar Hai and Sudhanshu Pandey in The Casino. I feel I have got to play the daughter of most handsome actors in the industry."

Pooja, who is playing a 19-year-old in KumKum Bhagya, is playing a role younger to her age and feels age should not be a hurdle for any actor to perform.Also read:Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2: Pooja Banerjee Drops Excessive Jewellery; Says, 'New Normal Feels Very Mechanical And Incomplete'- EXCLUSIVE PICTURES

"In Hollywood, age is not a matter of concern. You watch any of their films and series, you will not realise what their actual age is. In personal life, they must be in their 30 or 40s married and have kids but they perform so gracefully that you can't make out. And I think now people here also have started realising that age should not be a barrier. If a 40-year-old actor can romance a woman of younger age, why can't a younger woman do the same? Luckily I look younger than my age and that's the reason I get to play daughters' roles as well."

Pooja also added, "There is a lot of myth among the actresses that they can act for certain characters for a certain age. But it's not true. I remember when I decided to get married and settle down with Sandeep, many of them suggested not to get married at a young age or it will get difficult for you to find work. But nothing of that sort happened. In fact, I have been working more and constantly post my marriage."
