I am getting better roles now: Apara Mehta
New Delhi: Apara Mehta, who found fame on the small screen with her role as the dominating matriarch Savita Virani in `Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi`, is happy with her transition to a reality TV star.
The `saas-bahu` serials have lost their charm on TV and many stars from such shows had to settle for less meaty characters but Mehta has kept herself busy. She will next be seen in the reality TV show `Maa Exchange` on Sony.
"I am very happy with the kind of roles that I am being offered now. In fact, they are better than my previous assignments and there is more scope for an actor," Mehta told reporters.
The 50-year-old star is currently busy with comedy `Sajan Re Jhooth Mat Bolo` on Sab TV.
"`Sajan......` keeps me extremely busy. A TV serial is a full time job so I have been rejecting many other offers because of my commitment to `Sajan`," Mehta added.
The actress, who has appeared in shows like `Comedy Circus` and `Aaja Mahi Ve`, says she decided to do `Maa Exchange` because the concept appealed her.
The actress is seen moving to actor Sudesh Berry`s house for eight days, while Berry`s wife comes to Mehta`s house.
"At first I did not know where I was going. Once I entered the house, I saw Sudesh`s photo and then I realised I was at his home. I had a very warm welcome at their place. The show format was really nice and I enjoyed this new experience," she said.
Even though Mehta did get into arguments with Sudesh`s family and faced adjustment problems, she says she had a great time at Beri`s house.
"I am very tolerant but I got into an argument with Sudesh`s brother`s wife," said the actress, but she is full of praise for Berry`s mother, who, she think is very adorable.
"Sudesh`s mother is a lovely person. She had a sense of humour and talked about her experiences. She is very intelligent too," she added.
Apara last appeared in the Bollywood movie `Tees Mar Khan` where she played the role of Akshay Kumar`s mother but the actress is not doing any new movie for the time being.
"No, right now I do not have any film projects," she said.
