Television star Twinkle Arora has been making waves in the Colors daily soap Udaariyaan. Here’s the talented and versatile actress in an exclusive tete-a-tete with QNA India.

How did you get into acting and what drew you to the industry?

I have always been interested in acting, dance and storytelling since childhood so when the opportunity presented itself, I knew I had to pursue it. I was drawn to the industry because of the opportunity to portray different characters and bring stories to life.

What has been your experience like while working on the show Udaariyaan?

Working on Udaariyaan has been a great experience. A big roller coaster! Some days are super hectic and some days are super fun! Also, the team is very talented and dedicated as well as fun and it has been a pleasure to be a part of such a high-quality and super successful show. It’s a huge warm family to spend time with.

The show is very high on emotional quotient and is also undergoing many twists and turns. So how is the atmosphere on the sets?

The atmosphere on the sets is always very focused and professional, even during the more emotional scenes. It is hectic, and yes it takes a lot while performing such intense emotional scenes. We all support each other and work together to create the best possible product.

What do you think is the most important skill an actor needs to be successful?

I believe that the most important skill for an actor is to be calm and still to be present in the moment and fully commit to the character and the scene. Regardless of what life holds! This requires a combination of technical skill and emotional honesty.

How do you prepare for a role?

When preparing for a role, I like to do as much research as possible to understand the character and its motivations. Music helps me to get into an emotion! So I always have my airpods along. I also take advice and guidance from the director and sometimes discuss pointers with the co-actors to develop the character and find the best way to bring it to life.

How do you balance your acting commitments with your personal life?

Balancing my acting commitments with my personal life can definitely be a challenge, but I’m always trying my best to make it work. It’s tough with my busy shooting schedules, but I try to make time for the people and things that are important to me whenever I can. It’s all about finding a way to juggle everything and making it all fit together, and I’m always working on finding ways to make it happen. It’s not easy, but it’s worth it to be able to do what I love and still have a personal life outside of work. So, I am trying my best to maintain a balance between my personal and professional life.

What has been the most rewarding part of being an actress?

The most rewarding part of being an actress is when you hear people sharing the emotions they connect with the character. The stories they tell! The emotion they feel! The concern they have is the best reward! That’s why I read and try to respond to every emotion and post of people who share their love and blessings.

Where do you plan to go from here? What next? Are movies on the cards?

In the future, I hope to continue working in movies and TV, and I am definitely interested in exploring opportunities in Bollywood and even in OTT. I am always looking for new and exciting projects that challenge me as an actress and allow me to grow and develop as an artiste.
