I am in love with Ashmit, not with people who talk about him: Maheck Chahal

Maheck Chahal

Bold and beautiful are the adjectives that define Maheck Chahal. Starting her career in Bollywood with Nayee Padoson, the actress has come a long way. With passing time Maheck has become more graceful and elegant.

Maheck debuted on television with Bigg Boss 5, post which, she kept on doing many other projects. Now winning critics’ praises and audiences’ heart, she is currently seen as Manjulika, the evil atma, in Balaji Telefilms’ Kawach.

Recently we had the chance to strike a quick yet candid conversation with her. Her is what she said about her show, boyfriend Ashmit Patel, her teenage lover and many more.


After being a part of Bollywood, what made you say yes to a television project like Kawach?

I have been keen on taking up a television project for long. It’s just that, I was waiting for the right time, where I can work on television without compromising other ventures or any date issues. Kawach being a finite series provided me with the right opportunity. Moreover, it’s not a typical saas-bahu saga rather it’s something very distinctive. On top of it, the show is being backed by Colors and Ekta Kapoor, hence, there is nothing to worry about. Now a day even television is a big medium and actors doesn’t get typecast anymore. Stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Shilpa Shetty, Shah Rukh Khan are also part of this industry.

You are essaying the character of Manjulika, who is madly in love with Rajbeer (Vivek Dahiya). Have you ever felt such strong emotion in your life?

(Laugh), Not as obsessive as Manjulika, but of course I have felt certain strong emotion, which is quite dramatic. When I was a young teenager, I had a relationship with a guy. Back then I used to think about him all the time, spending sleepless nights and talking to him most of the time. That was quite a maddening phase, I would say (laugh).

It is always said the two actresses can’t gel well together, so do you have any insecurities about Mona (Singh) being the lead of the show?

We all work as a team to make our show a grand success. Naturally, there is no question of being insecure. I believe that my only competition is with me, so I work towards exceeding my own level.

Supernatural themes are doing pretty well in television, what is your take on the matter?

I believe that supernatural theme have not been much explored on small screen, while there is so much to show. Audiences have already witnessed too much of saas-bahu melodrama as well as quite a few numbers of youth shows. Naturally, they are bored with such contents and supernatural programmes do offer certain dramatic and mysterious elements, which can keep viewers glued to it.

Have you any regrets in your life?

At moments, when I have failed, I felt really bad and wished that I haven’t taken up the step. It’s a part of your life, but it’s all temporary. Without such experiences no one would succeed in life. Apart from such small momentary feelings, I really don’t have any regrets in life.

You are quite close to Salman Khan, has that anyhow helped you in your career to progress?

See, I share cordial relation with many other stars as well and many of them are very close friends of mine. Friendship, relations doesn’t help anyone to succeed in the long run. It’s all your hard work that speaks for you, big names, star friends nothing will come at your rescues if you can’t do your work properly.

Ashmit has been involved into many controversies in the past, does that bothers your relation at all?

I am in love with the man (Ashmit), not with them who speak about him. I know how he is with me and that’s all that matters for me in a relationship. Being from the same profession I understand that people talk a lot about you, but that never bothers me. For an instance, when I was injured everyone started speculating and writing about me, but all are rumors.

Would you like to do any project with Ashmit in future?

We are a great team and we understand each other well. It’s always fun to work with him. I am open for such projects, would love to work with him in future.

Finally, if given a chance, whom would you like to possess?

(After some thought), Donald Trump (laughs).
