A CTRESS Digangana Suryavanshi, known for featuring in TV shows like Ek Veer Ki Ardaas...Veera and Bigg Boss, is excited about making her debut in Bollywood with two films--Fryday and Jalebi -- which will release on October 12.

“I didn’t see this coming. I shot for both the films at different times. I was out of town, ringing inmy 20th birthday withmy parents and about 200 other people. My phone couldn’t stop ringing one day,” Digangana said. “The casting director of Fryday was on the line and he asked if I’d be interested to be a part of the film.

They’d seen my auditions that I’d given a few years ago. I thought it was a joke. I knew I wanted to do films someday, but didn’t believe it would come so easily,” she added.

When she returned to Mumbai, she met the film’s director Abhishek Dogra andsoon, she joined the cast of Govinda-starrer. “It was a gift to myself on my 20th birthday. When I’d begun shooting, I got a call for ‘Jalebi’. This time,I had to give an audition. The role demanded conviction,” she said. Recalling her Bigg Boss days, she said: “I vividly remember when I did Bigg Boss. I had two contracts,one before I entered the house with my parents’ signatures on it as I was 17 then and when I got out, I had another contract that I had signed after I celebrated my 18th birthday inside the house.” “It kind of felt cool when I got out of the house.Iwishitwas a conscious decision but these are things you can never plan. I have also worked really hard to get here. I took a break for a year and a half to get my focus straight. I now have two films releasing the same day before my 21st birthday.” But she feels people can’t be away from television.
