Deepika Singh is keen to make a comeback on TV. She reigned the small screen as Inspector Sandhya Rathi in Diya Aur Baati Hum. There was buzz that she would be a part of Bigg Boss 12 but the actress denied doing the show. Now, in an interview, she has opened up on how she wants to play a character that is a befitting successor to what she did in Diya Aur Baati Hum. In an interview to The Times of India, she said, "People assumed that I am busy with my baby, but I was prepared to work after eight months after my baby was born. It’s not that I would have got a show instantly. It takes a while for projects to materialize on TV. Besides, I don’t have a glamorous image and I don’t want to break it either. Besides, inspirational shows like ‘DABH’ are rare. I don’t think I would ever wear short clothes on TV."
She also spoke at length on why she is more veered towards positive roles than negative ones. She said, "All I want is a role that has scope for performance. Honestly, the medium is mediocre. ‘Glamour’ is usually associated with a negative or grey character and I don’t want to play a vamp. It’s easy to play a positive character. Firstly, I’m not capable of enacting the emotions of jealousy, complexity and fear. Secondly, I don’t want the negative character to affect me in real life. As an artiste, I take every character too seriously, prior to DABH, I used to go out and party. But Sandhya’s character rubbed off on me personally, too, and I stopped partying."
The actress lost 17 kilos after delivering her son, Sohum in eight months. This she achieved by working out in the gym and yoga. We hope to see Deepika back on the screen soon.
