Her dimples and tinkling laughter mesmerized her spectators and made many hearts skip a beat. Her mystic charm and vivacity coupled with that ever-smiling face makes Ragini Khanna, one of the most adorable and enchanting actresses on Indian television today. Ragini ruled the hearts of many with her portrayal of Suhaana in Star Plus’ Sasural Genda Phool and a number of soaps like Radha ki Betiyaan, Bhaskar Bharati and Sapna Baabul ka Bidaai.
The beguiling and bubbly actress finds football absolutely edge-of-the-seat thrilling and is enjoying the FIFA World Cup matches on . In a freewheeling chat with Tellychakkar.com, she speaks about her football fever.
Are you enjoying the FIFA World Cup matches?
Yes. I watched some of the matches. And I thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s fun but I am too lazy to sacrifice my sleep for FIFA matches. But I do follow them whenever I get time (smiles).
Do you like football more than cricket?
I hate cricket. I would any day prefer football over cricket. I think football is more active as a sport. I love watching the game because the players are really good-looking.
There was a time when disturbing lines and unclear picture quality was the way of life. Today technology has moved leaps and bounds giving crystal clear picture quality with HD TVs and set top boxes, within the comforts of our homes. Have you opted for any of these?
Yes definitely. I truly believe that digitization has revolutionized television. I switched to long back and have been enjoying a cinematic view and crystal clear picture quality since then.
Do you think HD (High Definition) enhances viewing experience?
Yes I do believe it enhances your experience manifold. It is strikingly clear in comparison to non-HD channels. I cannot do without HD. Like I mentioned, I switched to right from the time Sasural Genda Phool went HD. I wanted to see myself on television in the best quality possible (giggles). I enjoy my favorite shows only in high definition. Thanks to Tata Sky.
Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi- Your favourite player?
I am too amateur to even analyze their skills as football players. I think both are absolutely fantastic sportsmen. I personally love Ronaldo. He is extremely hot. Even his girlfriend Irina Shayk is stunning. They are an extremely good looking and hot couple.
Who do you think will win the cup?
FIFA is happening in Brazil. They are an extremely strong team and I think it would be poetic and at the same time very emotional and uplifting moment for Brazil to win the World Cup this year in their homeland.
Finally, come up with a FIFA slogan?
I think Bapida’s new FIFA 2014 anthem Life is Football-Ole Ole should be the anthem of every football fan in India. It is fun, jumpy and the captures the essence of love for the beautiful sport.
Talk about good looks, charm, perfect curves, intelligence…… she has it all! And the beautiful actress’ love for football earns her another brownie point. Hope you watch and enjoy the remaining World Cup matches, Ragini.
