Sumona Chakravarti started out as a vamp with a good heart on TV, but is now better known for the comedy show she's part of. However, the Lucknow girl refuses to part ways with Bade Acche Laggte Hain, even thoug her onscreen character Natasha, has very little to do on the show. "Because I am an important part of the show ever since it started, I am there in BALH, just for the sake of being there," says Sumona, who was in Lucknow to attend a family wedding. "I agree that I don't have much to do in the show. My creatives (directors) use me, whenever, they feel the need. I have done BALH for good two years, so mere liye bhi achha hai if I am not shooting regularly, I am getting a break from the hectic schedules," she adds.

But how wise it is to be a part of a show which is not doing good, even TRPs wise? "Bade Achhe... was catering to the urban audience when it started, but at the end of the day, it shifted

to a regular saas-bahu storyline, as it had to cater to the masses too. The show might not be getting great TRPs, but as a matter of fact, there are only a few shows that rise above TRPs. People still sit and watch them for the brand that they have created. BALH ka break-even point ho chuka hai. Now, it is not about profit-making from the show," rationalises Sumona.
Apart from having no substantial track in the serial, Sumona is also shown as much older. "Currently, I am being shown as a 43-year old woman, though my real age is 25. But even among my group of friends, it is like that even though I am 25, I talk quite maturely. Mentally, in real life too I am not my age. So, I play the character with ease," she says.
I am not stereotyped "I am not someone who watches Indian television. I only love watching American shows. I would like to do more Hindi fiction shows on TV, but not the regular saas-bahu ones. I am open to the idea of working with production houses other than Ekta Kapoor's (with which Sumona has done some five shows) but koi approach toh kare. I was approached for just one serial after BALH, which I refused. That's it!" says Sumona adding, "Whatever I have done till now on TV has been very different. Even though I do family based shows, yet my character is not sterotyped. I would love to be part of a show like Anil Kapoor's 24."
'Kapil Ki biwi' Sumona is recently making news for her comedy stint in Comedy Nights With Kapil. "I am an actor, not a stand-up comedian. It took me a long time to get the hang of comedy even when I did Comedy Circus with Kapil. I am so surprised that people think that I can do comedy by myself, but it is not so. It is so funny that I keep getting calls to do public shows. With Kapil, our chemistry is so brilliant, that we've just clicked together and now people love us together. Not many people know that Kapil had initially done a mock shoot with some other actress for Comedy Nights With Kapil. But when Kapil saw the shoot, he was like 'Please mujhe meri Sumona laa do'. After this show, people actually think I am married to Kapil. Wherever I go, I am addressed as Kapil ki biwi."
But there are benefits of doing comedy too. "Earlier people used to hate me for my character Natasha, now they love me. Comedy happened when I was not playing a good girl on screen. People realized after watching me on a comic show ki yeh utni bhi buri nahi hai," she laughs.
'I miss Gutthi' Recently, her show was also in news with Sunil Grover quitting it. But Sumona says she is not aware of the reason for this. "I don't know what has gone wrong between Kapil and Sunil Grover, but I miss Sunil on the show. I miss Gutthi," she says.
Barfi! was a crash course in Bollywood Sumona made an entry in Bollywood recently withBarfi!. Quiz her on what next in Bollywood and she says, "Barfi! I didn't do as a Bollywood debut. I did it thinking it was a fantastic crash course before entering Bollywood. I used to just sit on the sets and watch the working of the industry. I didn't treat it like, 'OMG! My first Bollywood flick!' Also, nothing has happened post Barfi! I am ready but kisi ne kuch offer hi nahi kiya abhi tak Bollywood mein."


kapil sharma wife, sumona
When you fall in love,
it is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then it subsides;
and when it subsides, you have to make a decision.
You have to work out whether your roots have become entwined
that it is inconceivable that you should ever part...
Because this is what love is.

Love is not breathlessness. It is not excitement.
It's not the desire to mate every second of the day.
It is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every part of your body.
That is just being in love.

Love itself is what is left over,
when being in love has burned away.

I don't think you will, ever fully you've touched my life, and made me who I am
I don't think you could ever know just how truly special you are that even on the darkest nights you are my brightest star.

I don't think you will ever fully understand how you have opened my heart to love, and the wonders it can do.

You've allowed me to experience something very hard to find unconditional love that exists, in my body, soul and mind.

I don't think you could ever feel, all the love i have to give and i'am sure you'll never realize,
You’ve been my will to live.

You are an amazing person and without you i don't know where I'd be having you in my life, completes and fulfils every part of me.

If i could dream at night
and if those dreams came true
i would force myself to sleep at night,
so i could dream of you.

If wishes were given to lonely girls
and if i were given just two
i would wish that you would always love me
and the other i would give to you.

If my tears could write love songs
before my tears were through
you would know just how i feel
and how much i love you!

But dreams are for dreamers
and wishes seldom come true
my tears do not write love songs
but when they fall...
they fall for you!

I recently met someone thanks to who i'am now wondering what is it about love and relationships that people end up loosing themselves completely? 10 yrs back i thought the man i fall in love with, will be the one i will get married to & spend the rest of my life with... Obviously down the years, i have loved and i have lost. But at least i did fall in love. But my question is - is it possible to be in love and not have any kind of an attachment with someone? Of course there are flings with no "strings attached", but can we be in love & at the same time not be emotionally attached to that person? I like someone. Knowing myself so well i would not be more than friends with him. He is not the ideal person who i want to be with. And yet i'am in love with him. It has been beautiful being with him, but...

One tends to be love and then forgets the reality. This is the first time i know exactly where i stand and what ill receive in the end.

But then i believe every person comes into your life for a reason. It may be for a day, week, month or a lifetime, but one day they do leave us. Some bring happiness and some cause pain; but it is upto us to learn from it. But do we learn? I don't think so... One thing i have realized is that life is too short to hold grudges. It's best to reminisce about the happy times and forgive the person for hurting us. But we should never forget the path life took us through.

What is it about infidelity that we cry about? Is infidelity only limited to sex, is there nothing as emotional infidelity? I would be very hurt if my partner is unable to share his thoughts and feelings with me & instead shares it with some other female friend of his.

Everyone has their own view and opinion and well these are mine!

Embrace Life as beautifully as you can and live every moment of it to the fullest!!

People walk into your life & people walk out of your life. What remains are memories, which get inked in our body & soul for the rest of our lives. We do tend to forget these memories over a period of time, but sub-consciously it’s always there; we just learn to ignore it. Do we learn from our mistakes? Do we even realize our mistakes??? We do, sooner or later. But at times the realization comes in tad too late!

However, if we do happen to realize our mistake and learn from it, then why do we happen to repeat them again in some way or the other??? Are we so dumb? Or is our memory so poor? Or is it now a habit to commit the same mistakes over & over again?

What about the good memories? What happens to them? Well I guess we do remember them at times, smile at our self and then carry on with our daily chores…

Main akela hi chala tha janibe manzil magar... Log saath aate gaye aur Karwaan banta gaya...

Mahananda ke ek sire se..
kayi kavitaayein judi hain..
Jo tumhe mujhse jodti hain..
Train ki chuk chuk mein bhi to..
na jaane kitni kahaniyaan goonjti hain..
Jo khamoshiyon mein bhi..
Mujhe dastak deti hain..

Kuch ansuni si kahaniyaan..
Kuch anchui si kavitaayein..
Jinhe maine likha hai..
Jinhe sirf tum sun sakte ho..
mehsoos kar sakte ho..
