Erica Fernandes has earned a number of fans with her earnest portrayal of Dr Sonakshi Bose in Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi. The lady did films down South before making her debut on TV with the show. Excerpts from an interview with the lady…
What does Erica mean?
My name Erica means a leader, a sole ruler.
You have done South films what prompted you to take up a TV offer?
I always wanted to do TV at some point in my career and this happened suddenly. I got films before and my break in movies wasn’t a planned one as such.
What do you like about Sona?
Sonakshi is a very mature character, strong headed woman who knows the value of everything in her life that is her family, friends or work. She has fallen in love for the very first time in her life and this phase is bringing out a new shade of Sonakshi.
You have worked in South films and now you are doing a TV show what difference you find?
Doing a films and doing a TV show are poles apart. They are two different things that cannot be compared but I enjoy doing both as I love what I do. The pace is 10x than that of films.
How is it shooting with your co star Shaheer Sheikh?
I am glad I have a really good costar. It’s really important to have co-operative co-actors when you are working and especially when you are doing a daily soap. He is a lovely costar, very supportive and encouraging. He pushes me to do better.
How is it working with a senior actress like Supriya Pilgaonkar?
Same goes with Supriyaji. She is a mother figure to us and the bond we have off screen is also very similar to what is onscreen as of now. She is just adorable.
If you were offered any reality show which reality show you would like to do?
Reality show !!! Let’s see when I get offered one. I am a little moody that way whatever interests me at that point of time I might take up.
What kind of roles you would like to do in future?
