Drashti Dhami: I can’t fit a movie in my schedule at the moment

No movie career for Drashti Dhami for at least one more year

Plans to embark on her big screen career have been put on hold after her decision to co-host dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa.

“It is just not possible. Between my daily soap Madhubala: Ek Ishq Ek Junoon and now this new job of hosting Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa, I have no time for anything else. I don’t even get to take a day off,” said Drashti.

She says that in the last six months, the only time she got an off was for New Year’s Eve and her birthday, which was January 10. “I see no way I can fit in a movie at the moment. And I don’t want to take on something so major unless I’m absolutely sure I’ve enough time for it,” she added.

Although Drashti has taken the task of co-hosting the seventh season of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 7, she is yet to meet Ranvir Shorey who will be her co-host. “I guess we’re both very busy with our careers. I am yet to meet Ranvir. But I know he’s fantastic with his quips and repartees whereas it is the first time as a host for me. So yes, I am nervous.” Drashti will meet Ranvir soon. “We need to establish a comfort level between us before the show begins.”

About the challenge of hosting the show, Drashti said: “I’ve to admit I am nervous. Last year, I won Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa. This year I am hosting it. That sounds like two big challenges on the same show for me for two consecutive years. To be honest, it wasn’t my idea. It was the channel’s idea. I took it on because it’s always a good idea to keep trying to stretch one’s abilities.”

Meanwhile, Drashti’s serial Madhubala has completed two years. She expresses great pride in being part of it. “I am the only actor who has been in the serial from the beginning till now. I don’t see the serial ending in the near future. I’m happy to see it go on. It has got me recognition. I won’t give it up until it wraps up,” she said.
