I would like to do Jhalak Dikhla Jaa – Debina Bonnerjee

Debina is happy with the short journey of her SAB TV show ‘Dr. Bhanumati on Duty’. “I have no regrets for all the hard work I have  put in for people have really appreciated my sexy sari look. Forget fans, even industry people have congratulated me as I am looking so different from my earlier avatars i.e. Ramayan, Chidiya  Ghar and  Yum Hai  Hum etc .”

As for the show shutting down, she says “TRP’s and GRP are not in our hands, so no point in discussing them . Many  a times shows which we are not happy doing creatively bring in big numbers .”

She had no problems replacing Kavita Kaushik? “The entire show  sans four character and hospital set up was changed. I essayed a  new character (Kavita played the Harvyanvi Bhanumati) with a different kind of look . Even the  title was changed to accommodate her. It would have been tough had I been given a character similar to Kavita, but it was not so. Had the creative team completely  changed the backdrop and maybe promoted the show more aggressively, things might have  been different.  But all in all a good experience.  People have sat back and noticed me.”

Looking ahead in the fiction space, Debina wants to do something again which she has not done before . As regards non fiction which she and hubby Gurmeet Choudhary have done lots. Nach Baliye,  Shriman v/s Shrimati, Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi  and Pati Patni Aur Woh etc. We have exhausted all genres except Bigg Boss and that is something we will never do. If something new comes  along we will be  game then. Personally, I would like to do Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa.”
She has individually  taken part in shows such as Zor Ka Jhatka: Total Wipeout and : Star Ya Rockstar as well.
