What are the three ways in which TV grooms a new artiste better than films?
There are a lot of ways in which TV grooms new artistes, so naming 3 is impossible! From long shooting hours to scripts coming in at the end moment which even require improvisation at times, there’s a lot to learn. You have characters with tremendous number of shades and layers to their personalities due to shows running for years at a stretch. This, in turn gives the actor so much variation to explore. They help in shaping up newbies into amazing performers!

What would you say about your crazy social media fan following?
All I can say is that I am eternally grateful for my lovely social media family that has only grown stronger and bigger over the years. They have supported me through thick and thin! It’s not always easy for me to stay updated with the new trends and fads that are circulating on social media, but with the help of my social media family, I am able to stay in touch with what’s happening and their eternal love for me is what keeps me going strong.

Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2’s Erica Fernandes moves out of her house as she resumes shooting; says, ‘I didn’t want my show to suffer’

Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 actor Parth Samthaan had recently returned to shoot on the sets. Now, Erica Fernandes is also back on sets to shoot for Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2. After Parth has tested positive for coronavirus, Erica Fernandes had also gone for a swab test which came negative, but the actress decided to shoot from home. She was concerned about her parent’s health but now she is back on set. She said that she made all the arrangements for her parents’ safety. In an interview with Bombay Times, she said, “My father is a heart patient and has had four heart attacks, while my mother has a history of TB. Besides, I, too, have breathing issues. I couldn’t have stepped out for the shoot, met so many people and come back home to them. That would have put them at risk. So, before I decided to return to the set, I asked them to move to another home. They will be staying separately, so that I don’t come in contact with them. I have never stayed away from my family, so it’s going to be a new experience. If I visit them, I will probably see them from outside the window.” Also Read – Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 actor Parth Samthaan resumes shooting for the show — view pic

She also revealed what made her take this decision to be back on sets. She said, “While shooting from home, I read a few scenes, which I felt wouldn’t have been effective if I shot them alone. Besides, I was not happy with what I was seeing on screen, and shooting alone was affecting my performance. I am on the show for a major part of it, and it wouldn’t look good if I was only going to be seen in close-ups with no interaction with my co-actors. The ratings were getting affected, and I didn’t want my show to suffer. Hence, I decided to return to the set. There was no pressure from the production house to come on the set; it is solely my decision.” Also Read – Parth Samthaan’s society residents file complaint against the Kasautii Zindagii Kay actor for breaking COVID-19 rules

That was the same case with producers, they did not have it initially but once they had, they gave us.”

Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 actress Erica Fernandes is not up for resuming work — here’s why

It’s unlock 1.0 right now. And the government has given the production houses to resume shooting for the numerous TV shows and films that had been stalled down to lockdown. Due to lockdown, it has affected several production houses who had to cancel various TV shows that were being aired on TV without a proper ending. Since pay cuts have been brought into the effect of course with precautionary measures in place. Reacting to the same, Erica Fernandes who plays Prerna Sharma in Kasautii Zindagii Kay told Pinvkilla that she is not up for the same.

“It’s not a simple question of yes or no. There is a lot to it. People have been out of work for a very long time. Some do not have the luxury of making a choice if they should get back to work or no. But, if you personally ask me, I am not up for it, not now at least, maybe a little later yes, and this is due to multiple reasons,” Erica told Pinkvilla.

“Firstly, we are just beginning to get out of the lockdown. There are high chances of a spike in the graph. Secondly, because we are entering the monsoon season where so many of us generally fall ill due to the change in weather. The symptoms of normal flu or dengue, malaria ( which are common during the monsoons) are very similar to the virus. This will create chaos and panic,” the Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi actress listed various reasons for the same.

That’s true in the sense as the number of COVID-19 cases is just increasing as is the number of death registered. The number of patients tested positive for the novel coronavirus has crossed 2 lakh which is a growing concern for everyone.
