This, she says, has been a acutely aware selection and displays who she is as an individual. “I can’t do image-building like other celebrities. Even if I want to, I don’t think I have that talent. It’s just not me. You like me, great; if you don’t like me, I can’t help it. I cannot be one of those actors who call the press to their place and then behave all awkward,” says the actor, who will subsequent be seen within the Punjabi movie Carry on Jatta 3.
But, does this method fare properly together with her friends and critics? “Sometimes, it may not,” Kaushik says. But, this doesn’t have an effect on her. “I am 42 and I do not care about what people think of me. It’s been 20 years that I have been in front of everyone. I have never cared if people thought I was brash. It is not my job to care about people and what they think of me,” she says.
Instead of paying heed to such gossip, Kaushik prefers specializing in her work. “I have been so busy and creatively active ki mere paas yeh ‘aao behen chugli karein’ wala time hi nahin tha kabhi. I did FIR (TV show) for nine years and I was so occupied that it kept me away from all the TV politics, who is getting what award or who is saying what,” she shares.
Speaking of one in every of her hottest exhibits, FIR, Kaushik says she by no means even had the time to soak in all of the appreciation she acquired for taking part in sub-inspector Chandramukhi Chautala. “It was much later that I got to know about the impact the show had left on people as well as the Indian television [industry]. Even today, children are watching it and when they meet and recognise me, it feels strange, but special… Kabhi accha sunne ka time bhi nahin mila toh bura kya sunti,” she ends.
