‘Bebana Pyaar’ actress Ekta Sharma forced to work at call centre, ‘I wanted to live the life of a warrior, not a victim’
New Delhi: The COVID pandemic has been tough on people working in the film and television industry as the production of many shows and movies has been halted, making life tougher and tougher for some actors.
One of the popular actresses on television, Ekta Sharma, who was a part of hit TV serials like ‘Kis Desh Mein Hai Mera Dil’ and ‘Babena Pyaar’, had to work in a call center after her exit. More than two years of work.
In a recent interview with Indian Express, the actress revealed the reason for the decision, saying, “I am an educated girl and instead of sitting at home and crying, I decided to go out and earn. I am doing a respectable job. I am proud of it. Initially, I sold my jewellery.
Commenting further on the challenge of working in the real world, he said, “It’s good to have a luxury vanity life where you have a spot boy around you, food and now talking to angry customers on calls. A paradigm shift for me. However, I’m grateful for what my parents did to complete my degree, so I’m doing this. I could get a job, and my only aim was to live as a warrior, not a victim.”
