I have got much more recognition. I have been a part of the show for two and a half years now and when you are a part one of the top three shows in the country, it is bound to. People recognize me whenever I go but it is more for my role in Kynkii Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi and Dil Se Dil Tak. But now, the recognition is coming only from Kumkum Bhagya and wherever I go, I am addressed as Pallavi.

I have never been a big fan of Bollywood. I have acted in Mahesh Manjrekar’s “Deha” but that happened as my husband is his friend. I also did a small role in “Nayak”, but like I said, it’s only TV for me. You know, I started my acting when I was a 17-year-old, but I always wanted to be an actor and not a star. For me, the role needs to be character driven and not just glamorous and chic.”
