Sarika is all set to turn TV show host with Savdhaan India, which deals with real-life crime stories. Talking about her third stint on TV — the first two being in the Amitabh Bachchan-starrer Yudh (2014) and in the Bipasha Basu-hosted Darr Sabko Lagta Hai (2015) — she admits that it was an enjoyable experience. “It’s non-fiction yet, there is an element of cinema and the combination is interesting,” she says.
The actress is taking on the subject of medical crime in the series from this weekend and explains that such subjects need to be handled with care. “It is a sensitive subject and needs to be treated carefully — right from the performance to your costumes. Everything has to be in tone with the issues we are talking about, so there is nothing loud or over the top,” she elaborates.
The show’s director Sanjay Tripathy had earlier directed Sarika in his film, Club 60 (2013). “When I came on board for the show, I thought of her as anchor,” informs Tripathy.
Sarika adds, “When Sanjayji called me for this show, I was on board with no questions asked because Club 60 team is like family and me doing this show is an extension of that experience.”
