Model-turned-actor Parull Chaudhry, who shot to fame with the serial ‘Baa, Bahu aur Beti’ has come a long way since her debut on the small screen. The Delhi-based actress has garnered rave reviews for her short film ‘Watermelon’, which was screened at Cannes Film Festival last year. The actress is currently donning her first negative role in the serial ‘Ek Tha Raja, Ek Thi Rani’.
This is your first negative role. How is the transition?
I am really enjoying the role a lot. In negative roles, there is something new to do every day. There is never a dull moment and it also becomes the high point of the show many times.
Tell us about your stint in TV industry?
My journey has been an interesting one. I was modeling in Delhi after Gladrags contest. After working with all leading choreographers and designers, I decided to move to Mumbai, since I was getting calls for TV shows. I didn't have to wait for a break but since I wasn't used to acting or to the pace of TV shoots I had to learn everything on the job. Initial days were difficult but I learnt fast and coped.
You received accolades for your performance in the short film. Tell us about it.
‘Watermelon’ is based on domestic violence and the concept that the world is grey. It is about two neighbours with contrasting personalities and how a situation changes to bring them together. The film was shot at one location in 24 hours.
What do you do when not working?
I give time to my fitness routine when I am free. I meet friends, watch films with my family. I love to keep everything neat and clean so most times I am cleaning and sorting my stuff on a free day.
