I meet people everywhere, the moment you step out of the house, your neighbors tell you. That is exactly what motivates you to do something different."

When I was in london last year, I had so many indians telling me that they liked me in ‘Bade Achhe Lagte Hain’. It’s nice to see the love coming whether it’s for ‘Bade Achhe…’ or ‘Comedy Nights…’. It’s great and you know you are doing something right. Nobody expected me to do well in comedy.” Sumona added.

About Bade Acche Lagte Hain

“‘Bade Achhe Lagte Hain’ gave me a name, it was my claim to fame. I had worked a lot before but ‘Bade Achhe Lagte Hain’ made me famous, and I owe a lot of my career to that show. For ‘Barfi!’, we didn't even have the script but the idea was to work with Anurag da. I took up the film thinking, ‘This will be an amazing crash course as an actor’. I knew I’d get to work with Ranbir, with Priyanka. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a scene but it was amazing to be a brick on the wall. You learn so much by just having a film like ‘Barfi’ on your resume,she said.

About becoming a part of Khatron Ke khiladi 14

Talking about being a rohit shetty fan and her KKK stint, Chakravarti told PTI, “Every year she would be like, ‘Why don’t you do this show?’ I would be like, ‘Why do you want me to be in an uncomfortable situation?’

"I know there’s a certain image that has been created in people’s minds because of my body of work, so I thought ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ is a great platform, where I get to do things that I would like to do, like going on adventures. It’s also a platform that will present my real self, how I deal with situations,” she added.
