Mumbai actress Simran Pareenja, who shot to fame with Hindi soap opera Kaala Teeka, will be making her acting debut in Nikhil’s forthcoming film Kiraak Party, directed by Sharan Koppisetti. Talking about her experience, the Punjabi-born shares, “I play a college-goer who is the daughter of a police officer and controlled by her parents. It’s a mature role and my character likes to read and write. It’s like a breath of fresh air after having played bahu roles in soap operas. Since I was playing my age, I could relate to my role. In real life too, I like being in my own space.”

Narrating how she landed the project, Simran says, “When I came for the audition, I didn’t know the language, but I was determined to do it in Telugu. After I came on board, I hired a Telugu tutor to get my language and diction right.”The actress admits that she did get nostalgic shooting for the youthful entertainer. “I could relive all my college days where we had fun with friends, bunking college, having parties, student elections, etc,” she says.

 

Simran finds a world of difference between television and the silver screen. “Both industries are in complete contrast; while TV is more spontaneous, films are dramatic. If you shoot 12 scenes per day for a serial, in showbiz, you just shoot for a couple of scenes. But I’m enjoying the best of both worlds. The people on the sets of my Telugu film are very warm and pamper me, even calling me bacchu!” Apparently, the actress has also got a taste of South Indian delicacies. “I am used to having parathas, but of late, I have been savouring rice, idli, pesarattu, pongal, etc. I’m amazed to see the different types of chutneys that are served for breakfast,” she muses.
