"I Left TV Because I Love Doing Films", Says "Shadaa" Actress Neeru Bajwa

Vaishnavi Gavankar |Jun 21, 2019

When Neeru Bajwa made her switch from the Television industry to film industry, she says, she never had any doubt that things will not work for her in movies.

Indian television actress Neeru Bajwa who has featured in popular TV shows such as Jeet and Guns and Roses, says it was a conscious decision to leave the medium as the parts she was being offered were getting repetitive.

According to the actress, Neeru Bajwa says she was getting good offers from the television industry but she could not feel a connection with characters she was being asked to portray.

She said, "There was a lot of money but I just I couldn't connect really. You know, I just didn't want to do something that I had to repeat all the time; a character, which is not good".

"I don't look down upon it. I mean, it gave me so much popularity, and because of TV, I got my first breakthrough. But I just enjoy doing films more," Neeru told PTI in an interview.

The 38-year-old actor is one of the most actresses of the Punjabi film industry nowadays. Neeru says she is not hesitant to starring in Bollywood Hindi films, but the scripts she receives need to have something more to offer and are worth her effort.

"I don't look down upon it. I mean, it gave me so much popularity, and because of TV, I got my first breakthrough. But I just enjoy doing films more," Neeru told PTI in an interview.

"If I get good films, I would definitely do them. But most of the stuff that I get is not good at all. They were not good scripts. It's just that if I'm going to do something, I want to do something of great quality, which I'm getting in the Punjabi industry. So why would I do something stupid just for the sake of it?", Neeru Bajwa says.

Neeru Bajwa currently working for Shadaa film with the renowned Punjabi actor-singer Diljit Dosanjh. The film revolves around a man and a woman, who are looking for love, even though they have crossed the so-called appropriate age of marriage.

"We are playing two people who are past the 'suitable age' of marriage. I think this is pretty much prevalent in our society. I mean, I've met so many women and girls during the film's promotions. They're like, it's so annoying when you pass a certain age and people start (nudging you) about getting married. And then they stop asking and just give up on you. The comments you get are not good."

She says, "I'm a believer in arranged marriages. I mean, mine was kind of an arranged marriage. My sister introduced me to my husband. You know, kind of set it up. She was not like, 'You have to marry him', but she introduced me to him because I don't get to meet too many people. And so I knew, right when I saw him, that 'This is it.'"
