Devoleena Bhattacharjee recently opens up about many things in an interview. Devoleena talks about if destiny plays important role or not and shares the excerpt from her experiences.
Devoleena says – “No doubt knowing people in the industry helps. You get to know about opportunities but what gets you work is your talent. Even these powerful people would work with you on the basis of your ability. There will be these groups and camps everywhere. It’s there in the television industry too. But you don’t have to be a part of them to function. So I don’t think being friends with the powerful or being part of certain groups gets you projects.”
She further explains and says – “If it’s in my destiny I’ll become the top in the game. But then we create our own destiny with our honest efforts. Having a certain number of social media followers also doesn’t help much in the long run. If you don’t have it or if you aren’t ready to hone it, you don’t go anywhere. I’m not trying to put anyone down, I’m just saying what I believe in. TV is one medium that offers equal opportunities to all.”
Talking about rejections made her stronger, Devoleena says – “It’s never easy and it shouldn’t be easy or else we won’t value what we get. Your journey defines you. TV gave me recognition and respect. At this point, I’ll not settle for a role that doesn’t match up to the kind of work I’ve done. Living up to my art and expectations of my fans are also my responsibility.”
She concludes by saying – “The one thing that I want to avoid is getting stereotyped. As an artiste I don’t want to restrict myself into doing only certain kind of characters. I want to surprise myself, do characters that I could never imagine I can pull off. My work should make me get up every morning and look forward to go to the sets.”
