Ragini Khanna shot to fame with her winsome smile and her confident, outspoken roles across a host of television shows. She’s back this time, with a new show, India’s Best Dramebaaz. Since Valentine’s Day is round the corner, we ask her if there is a special someone she wants to talk about. The actress replies, “Yeh raaz ko raaz hi rehne do. When I decide to get married, I will play the dhol and inform everyone about my decision.”

Moving on to work matters, Ragini and Ritvik are all set to host India’s Best Dramebaaz. An ecstatic Ragini informs, “I was skeptical about how it will be working with big names like Vivek Oberoi, Sonali Bendre and Anurag Basu, but then I realised they are the sweetest people I have ever met. I did not shoot with Vivek for long but I really bonded well with Sonali and Anurag da. Ritvik is a sweet boy, we have been having these cute arguments since our Jhalak Dikhla Jaa days and you will see the same chemistry here.”

However, Ragini admits that anchoring does not come naturally to her. She says, “Anchoring is tricky, but I love accepting challenges. I always accept something that I am not comfortable doing and then work on bettering myself as I need some motivation to be on the sets.”

So does Ragini intend to get back to a daily soap anytime soon? “I am itching to act in a new show but the story matters most to me. I would rather wait and say a ‘yes’ to the right show,” she says.
Good call.
