She is one of the prominent actors of the small screen. As she lives in the present moment, success always knocks her doors. Surbhi Jyoti who rose to fame with Zee TV’s Qubool Hai, speaks with The Free Press Journal about her vacation diaries, web series and more…
It’s been quite sometime that you have been missing from the television. What are you planning?
I think its just 3 months and it has not been a very long time. It was a much needed break because that show went on air for 3-3 ½ years, so if I take a break for 3-4 months then it’s not very much in comparison to the life span of the show. I have been traveling, making friends, watching movies, chilling and giving time for myself. I have decided that I’ll spend some time on self pampering. There have been offers coming on my way but I want to choose wisely and I don’t want to make a decision in rush or in a hurry. That’s why I am taking time.
Did you make the decision to do a web series based on the fact that it would make you more approachable or reachable to the audience?
I didn’t say yes to this web series keeping all that in mind. It was never my motive. I like the idea. After doing a daily soap, why not try a web series? Hence, I agreed to do a web series.
What is your character in the web series?
I am playing a protagonist. We did a photo shoot for the web series. The details regarding the character, story etc are yet to be finalized. The discussions are still going on.
How did you celebrate Mother’s Day?
I called my Mom who is in Ujjain for Kumbh with her sisters and she was quite busy enjoying her day. I just called her and wished her.
Which is your best relaxing moment?
I think whenever I am on a holiday; every moment is a chilling moment for me. I love traveling. I have just been to Thailand. I took my mom to Goa when she was traveling with me and now I am going to Europe. I am still enjoying.
Have you been missing daily soaps while you are holidaying?
I am a very present day girl. I enjoy myself, trust me. I don’t easily miss something. Whenever I am doing something, I do it with 100 % and with my whole heart but when it’s over, I don’t miss anything because there are new things to do. I did that show for quite sometime (chuckles).
