MUMBAI : Talented actress Anita Raaj has been entertaining the masses with her power-packed performances for decades now. She is currently a part of Colors’ popular show Choti Sardarni.
TellyChakkar got in touch with Anita ji, who spoke briefly about how people appreciate her health and fitness and facing and dealing with criticism. Read on to know what she had to say.
Your roles and characters are very different from how you are in real life. So how do you deal with it when people on social media criticise it?
I have to say my followers are really nice. They've seen my growth and have always been kind and showered love on me. Many followers message me regarding my exercise videos and appreciate my health and fitness; that genuinely makes me happy.”
What change would you like to bring about for women?
I think many changes are happening nowadays. Women empowerment is very important, and I think we should strive to be better humans.
How have you handled the ups and downs and the controversies in your career so far?
Ups and downs in our industry have always been exaggerated. It's not in our control to restrict the controversies. People like to know what's going on in an actor’s life, so it's inevitable. I believe that if you are a good person and put forward your thoughts in a wise way, then it makes a lot of difference. Moreover, life without challenges is very monotonous and boring. In fact, it's not life if there are no challenges in it.
Do you see the nation progressing in the next 10 years?
I think it's going to be beautiful because women are in every field, and they're excelling at their work. They're not just equal to men but better than them.
Well said, Anita ji!
