The perky and pretty Mahhi Vij can mesmerize anyone with her good looks, sensuous eyes, and sparkling smile. She tasted success on TV with her portrayal of Nakusha in Laagi Tujhse Lagan. The actress later made her comeback on TV after a long hiatus with Balika Vadhu.
Mahhi has participated in several reality shows and has recently featured in episodic show Laal Ishq opposite Zain Imam. On the personal front, Mahhi is happily married to Jay Bhanushali.
In a chat with businessvoip, Mahhi spoke about working with Zain, future plans, her personal life, and more.
I am a die-hard romantic
I constantly tell Jay to get a little romantic, as I am very loving in nature. I believe in surprises and unplanned vacations. I am very protective towards Jay, and I keep a complete check on what he is eating at his shoots.
I don’t want to work only for money
I am not choosy, but it is just that I am not liking the kind of shows that are being made on TV at the moment. I don’t want to be part of a show just for the heck of it. I am also not working only for money. I want to do roles that I enjoy playing and that are worth waiting for. I took up Laal Ishq because the treatment is different from others. The makers are working hard for each episodic to look its best.
I like spending time with my parents and in-laws
In my free time, I keep myself busy by performing yoga, working out at the gym, and spending time with my parents and in-laws. I take them out for dinner.
I believe in karma
I don’t believe in supernatural powers but in karma. If you help people and think good about them, it will come back to you in the form of a blessing. Talking about supernatural shows, I think people do enjoy watching such kind of shows, as they are entertaining, intriguing, and thrilling.
It was fun shooting with Zain Imam
Zain is a fantastic guy, and I enjoyed shooting with him. I didn’t realize how the three days of shoot passed by so quickly.
I am not satisfied with my career
Personally, I am very content, as I have a beautiful family along with my caretaker’s kids, who are also more of a family to me now. Professionally, I feel there are lot of walls that are not letting me do many shows. I am not satisfied with my career and am looking forward to do some great work on TV. There were rumours that I was pregnant, and people stopped approaching me. So it’s a request: please do not believe such news. We women tend to look a little bloated when on our periods, but that doesn’t mean that we have gained weight. Actors cannot be fit all the time.
There is still time for motherhood
I want to work for some time. I don’t want to leave my talent at the moment. Definitely, motherhood is a beautiful feeling, and we will have babies, but not now.
Happy to be associated with Balika Vadhu
Balika Vadhu has made a mark in the Limca Book of Records, so I consider myself lucky to be associated with such a great show. When you Google Balika Vadhu, it makes me proud to see my name mentioned in it.
I don’t mind playing Naagin
Naagin has become a brand, and if I am offered a role, I will definitely take it up. The show is churning out the highest ratings at the moment. In the end, even makers want to roll out shows that viewers like to watch.
