Kuch Rang Pyaar Ke Aise Bhi finally aired its third season on July 12. The show stars Erica Fernandes and Shaheer Sheikh in the main lead. While the show is getting a good response from fans and audiences, we got in touch with the actress to know about her current feelings.
Erica, in an exclusive conversation with SpotboyE.com, opened up about the kind of roles she would like to take up in future and shared the reason of her being away from reality shows so far.
Excerpts from the interview
How excited are you about the launch of the new season?
I am very excited that Kuch Rang Pyaar Ke Aise Bhi is back with season 3. Nothing makes me happier than getting back into Sonakshi's avatar, which is a character that is immensely close to my heart. This show has, is, and will forever fetch a special place in my heart and my loyalty towards it is going to be never-ending, so whenever it calls, I will be there for it.
Where actresses want to experiment with the characters and also get bored easily, what motivated you to play Sonakshi once again?
I didn't really need anything to motivate me to play Sonakshi again. With a character that has helped me shape up my personality in so many ways and helped me raise the bar for myself as an actor and a performer, there was no thinking twice about taking up the role again.
Season 3 focuses on the ups and downs a couple goes through after marriage. Did you take any advice from any of the married couples you are close to in order to emote better?
I think all of us just picked up from where we left our characters and worked on the emotions, feelings, and characteristics that have been put together on the basis of the storyline for this season.
Your look this time is interesting in the show. Since you have your own style sense, have you incorporated your likings as well?
Well, this time my stylist Shrushti and the creatives are actively working on Sonakshi's costumes for the show.
Being a popular face on television, I am sure a lot of reality shows have been offered to you. Why didn't we see you participating in any?
As of now, I am focussing on a lot of other aspects in terms of my work, but as and when the time is right and I feel the need to take up a reality show, I definitely will.
Any plans of doing something on the digital platform?
If given a good script, a good role, a good story, I would definitely like to explore the webworld. The Web is tremendously evolving at the moment and the number of opportunities it has put out there for us actors to experiment with the kind of work we want to do is just amazing! It would be exciting to work on a good web show and it is something I am definitely rooting for.
We have always seen you play the 'good girl' character. Will you ever take up a negative role?
As an actor, it is my wish to experiment with every possible genre, so I can explore my acting abilities to the fullest. So, be it a negative role or a comic role or even the role of a superwoman, I would love to take it up to broaden my vision and better myself as a performer. Being diverse and importantly exploring opportunities that I have not worked on before, is what I am eventually aiming at.
A lot of actors believe having a good Instagram following is really important to get work. Do you agree?
Social media numbers have definitely become a trend these days, but at the same time, I feel that it should not just be about one's following but more about building the right kind of connection with your followers and importantly using the medium to spread the right kind of messages and give out loads of positivity.
We learnt you have turned vegetarian. Any special reason?
Turning vegetarian is something I am doing more out of a personal reason.
Modelling, acting, vlogging what's next on Erica's mind?
Oh, there's a lot on my mind that I would love to give a shot at! There are a lot of plans to expand my creativity in many ways, but as and when I am sure of them, only then will I speak about it.
