Popular TV actress Aishwarya Sakhuja, who shot to fame as Toasty in hit soap 'Saas Bina Sasuraal', says she does not want to do run-of-the-mill shows on small screen.
The model-turned-actress is currently doing 'Main Naa Bhoolungi', a thriller-drama being aired on Sony TV.
"I don't want to do any run-of-the-mill shows. After 'Saas Bina Sasuraal', it took me a while to choose a fiction show which I liked. It ('Saas...) was a path breaking show for me and I was looking for something bigger after that," the 27-year-old said.
"This industry gives you a lot and also takes away a lot from you. In my case, my health suffered and so I took a break. I wanted to recover completely and then get back to work. Being without work makes you feel depressed. I love to act and will do so till I die," she said.
Aishwarya became a household name with her lead character in 'Saas Bina Sasuraal', a comedy-drama involving a family which has only male members. Toasty (her character in the show) comes into the family sans mother-in-law after her marriage. The show was on air from 2010 to 2012.
In the new TV show, she plays Shikha, a simple and sweet college girl. Her parents get her married to a young man who, on face of it, comes across as an ideal husband. But he has a dark secret -- his dreams are all about torturing and killing her.
"It is a thriller-drama with lots of twists. The show and my role is opposite of Toasty of 'Saas Bina Sasuraal'. I want to break the Toasty mould and bring Shikha into the limelight," Aishwarya said.
