Actress Sayantani Ghosh, who has been a part of the Indian television industry for more than a decade, is happy where she is and hasn’t yet planned a Bollywood foray.

“I belong to the TV industry. It is my identity. I did not join TV just to become one or two-show heroine... I can see myself working for small screen even at the age of 52, Sayantani told IANS during the promotions of her new mythological show Karn Sangini here.
While she doesn’t rule out a Bollywood innings, she says that for an actor the medium does not matter.

“Right now, I have not decided to make a foray into Bollywood. It happens organically and if it happens, of course I would love to do Hindi films. But right now my focus is on television and I want to give my 100 per cent to the current project.”

The “Naamkarann” actress also praised television actors who are making it big in Bollywood. She said, “Look
at Mouni Roy, she is doing so great in Bollywood. There are so many actors who have switched from TV to film industry and are doing a commendable job. I am proud of them as they are the flagbearers of our Hindi television industry.”

Be it history or mythology or love story, versatile Sayantani, who has essayed an array of characters on the small screen, now wants to see herself doing an action-oriented role.
“I really want to pursue action sequences in my future projects, but unfortunately we have less action roles for the actors in TV,” she sighed.
