The actor has recently revealed that the makers do not approach her for certain roles because they use to find her “too hot” for the part.
TV actor Barkha Bisht has played the girl next door in most of her shows, which includes Pyaar Ke Do Naam and Parvarrish. Therefore, she finds it very “strange” that tags like ‘sexy’ and ‘hot’ are attached to her name. “I have played the role of a simple girl for the past 11 years. Yet, these tags are attached to me. I don’t know why,” she says.
As a result, she has revealed that many makers have not approached her for certain roles. “They think I am too hot for the part. Maybe my off-screen image affects my on-screen one. It is sad that people relate to me in this way. It is a challenge to break this image,” says Barkha.
Being an army officer’s daughter, Barkha has always led a “protected life”. Ask her if it was difficult for her to further adapt to the ways of the entertainment industry, and she says, “Yes, it was tough. But I am rebellious. Since I led such a protected life, something in me wanted to defy it. I don’t regret being here [in the television industry].”
