Kamna is the new show on primetime slot and is currently airing on Sony TV at 8.30 PM. It is the story of a simple-minded government employee Manav (Abhishek Rawat) and his wife Kamna (Chandni Sharma), a housewife who has materialistic ambitions in life, but does not have the means to fulfill all her desires. Since Manav and Kamna do not have moral base and life value, their bitter chemistry in the show is worth watching.
Talking about the various aspects that Kamna has touched in the husband-wife story, Abhishek shared, “The people we play in Kaamna are flawed and very real. There is no black and white in any aspect of his personality.
Chandni further added, “There is not a single domineering character in the story. Say, the husband is dominating and the wife is sitting in the corner, nothing like that. Also say that the wife is very smart and molests her husband all the time. It does not, it is not. It is a struggle for equality. Both the characters have their own way of handling situations. Also, there is no negative or positive character in the show. We are human beings and that’s how we became Huh.”
Talking about the positive and negative aspects of working on a TV set, where shooting takes place in shifts of 12 hours everyday, Chandni said in a light-hearted manner, “The positive is, you keep working and keep earning. But you don’t have time to shop. And spend that money or waste it on useless things. The downside is that even when you’re making money, you don’t have time to spend on the things you love. In my case, that’s clothes. You can also shop online but where to wear those clothes (laughs)?”
Abhishek shared, “It is good that you are working on a daily basis. The downside is that when you keep doing the same thing every day, monotony builds up. The sleep cycle gets disrupted. a lot of work to do. You are not resting properly. The challenge is to get through the tough times. One thing is, don’t think too much about it. Acting profession sometimes takes work and sometimes not that much. There is a lean patch. But I think sometimes you start compromising with it and then it becomes a thing.”
On work-life balance, Abhishek said, “It is not often that there is a perfect balance. With 12 hours of shooting and travel time, not much time is left to do personal work and spend quality time with my family But life is like that and there’s not much you can do about it.”
Chandni shared, “Usually it is one day off in a week. I work out, or go shopping or go to class on my spare day. No one can do so much in a day. Sometimes my heart tells me to take some rest. So it becomes an achievement in itself that you feel comfortable. It shows up on the face too and it is very important in our workspace.”
