Pranitaa Pandit vouches for the evolution of the entertainment industry over the years. Now the industry is bouncing back after everything came to a standstill due to Covid, the actor also thanks digital media that kept things moving. Discussing the pros and cons of being a part of showbiz, she adds, “The pros are that it is artistic and creative, people enjoy it. You get to discover yourself, work hard, do what you love, the kind of feedback and appreciation you get is immense. The cons are that things are temporary. In an industry, business, or job profile, there are many years that you keep giving in, you keep growing and your values and respect increase. But this doesn’t stand the same for the entertainment industry. Once things change, people don’t give you that kind of importance. You have to be really grounded and humble about it and never let it hit your head.”
The actor shares that the best part about her journey is that it was something that was not planned. “The most beautiful thing about it is that some things happened by the grace of God, so that is what I really love about my journey. I didn’t even know if I wanted to be a part of the industry and it just happened. I like to pick up opportunities. I live life by the day and that made me an artist. Even today, I like exploring as an actor,” says Pranitaa, adding that projects like Uttaran and Kasam made a difference in her career.
“My career goals are diversified. I would like to go out there and make a difference. I want to explore myself. We already have a decent crowd who enjoys watching us. In future I will be looking at more meaningful work and not anything random. I cannot be ever satisfied with my work, but I am content yet seeking for more. I think there is more potential left in me. Now is the time that you actually mature. Your 30s is when you know yourself better and that’s what I am feeling right now,” she shares.
Giving a message to her fans and her goodbye note to 2021, Pranitaa says, “These days social media has become a kind of space where there is a lot of negativity vis-a-vis the positivity. Still if we can refrain from getting nasty to people whom we have loved or know them publicly then it would be a better place to be in. 2021 has taught us all a lot. So let it be, let it go, live life by the day, smile more. It is all very temporary, things switch in a click.”
