Sheena Bajaj: People still call me the ‘Shikwa Nahi’ girl!


Talented actress Sheena Bajaj who made a rather sizzling music video debut with singer Jubin Nautiyal  in the song ‘Shikwa Nahi’ is still getting an amazing response for it. When we asked Sheena about it, she says, “You know, I have only done one music video which was such a hit that people still call me the Shikwa Nahi girl! It definitely left a mark in the minds of the audience.”

And, while most music videos feature actresses wear revealing clothes, Sheena depended on her performance to make a difference. She says, “TV actresses, including me, love experimenting with our looks. But in ‘Shikwa Nahi, I donned the look of a very plain, Indian girl wearing long, flowy Anarkalis. I found that to be quite cool. While TV is all about close up and performances, music videos are all about looking pretty and dancing well. So I’m happy I got the opportunity for a change.”’

Considering Sheena plays a romantic character in the music video, does she like her newly acquired romantic image? “I love any image that people like to give me. Earlier, I used to run away from a romantic image. But now, in the video and the show,(‘Thapki… Pyaar Ki’) I have a super romantic track! People are calling me the romance queen! Still, I love doing all kinds of roles on screen, not just romance. I am open to doing anything that is performance oriented. I will do anything that is not Sheena Bajaj, because in real life, because I am a very shy and quiet person.”

All the best, Sheena. We hope to see you in more diverse roles soon!
