Sanika Gadgil being a sweet and generous person shares her real life experiences, her thoughts, her goals and what type of person she is with us.Believe us or not she’s one of the most interesting people we interviewed. Just like an open book she wants to live it all and experience it to fullest! She also believes ‘Work is worship’ and whatever the task is allotted to her she believes in giving her 100% no matter what!
May it be her famous character Nisha from serial Molkarinbai or Meghana from Maza Hoshil Na she has truly done justice to the curated characters which looks like written perfectly for her. She is such a treat to watch when it comes to portraying a character that should be as natural as designed.
We and some of her fans were excited to know about her journey and her life and we could barely find a source to do so. So team Paradox reached Sanika Gadgil and asked some questions that all of us wanted to know.
1. ACTING HAS BEEN FOREVER YOUR PASSION YA WAQT NE KIYA KOI HASEEN SITAM?
Sanika Gadgil: I can’t say acting was my passion, but the craft always fascinated me and I thought that this is something I want to be good at. I was always keen to discover myself as an actor and evolve in it. Yeah, waise to waqt ne hi kiya haseen sitam because over the journey I discovered small and big edges of acting and fell in love with it.
2. We have been following your dance videos and the steps you were grooving at were just so graceful ! So your dance skills helped you in
Sanika Gadgil: : Well I have learned kathak ( I am a kathak Visharad), I took admission in Dahanukar college(junior college) St.Andrews College(degree college) for the cultural background it has, so that I can participate in various events and BMM festivals that take place in the college(olio named english drama competition)but unfortunately in my second year olio stopped taking place and the reason for which I joined the college wasn’t fulfilled. But luckily I got selected for a play named ‘Mughal-E-Azam’ which had kathak dancers from all over India, this experience enriched me emotionally, physically and professionally as well as evolved my skills. I found it as one of the turning point that shaped me as a human being.https://www.instagram.com/tv/CBQdgNxH64p/
3. If given a chance to play a bollywood character,which character it would be and why?
Sanika Gadgil: Well there are many iconic characters that bollywood gave us, its hard to choose just one, but Illena Dcruz’s character from Barfi is really a role that I would love to explore and Ranbir Kapoors character Ved from Tamasha is such a challenging yet effortless role, it would really be a challenge and something I want to try out!
4. What are your personal favourites from the Marathi industry?
Sanika Gadgil: This is a hard one! Marathi industry gave us gem of actors and choosing between them is really tough, like it largely depends upon the characters that they have portrayed. Like I have always been a fan of Subhodh Bhave sir, his versatility and the amount of hardwork he puts in whether it is on TV or in cinemas it’s just beyond appreciation and Shubhangi Gokhale mam too. Also not to forget Sukanya Mone mam,she is also among the actors I always look upto!
5.How’s been your experience working on sets of Maza Hoshil Na?
Sanika Gadgil: Its been amazing, like you get to work among different,experienced and best actors of the industry. The senior actors teach me lot about improvisation.The director has also played a major role in building up the character Meghana. Gautami and Virajas have been amazing so far, we discuss over our careersand more importantly there is mutual respect among us. It is not a long running character but surely it a long lasting character that I will take with me for long span of time.
6.Do you find theatre more challenging as compared to TV?
Sanika Gadgil: Actually I think both the platforms have its own challenges and different experiences. There are perks of theatre that there is no room for mistakes but it doesn’t allow retakes so its one time, give your best shot. Its like you are done once then you are done. As of television its like you have to maintain the constant emotions and expressions till the best shot comes out. In my personal opinion as an actor I want to explore every platform whether that be OTT or theatre, everything has its own beauty to be explored by an artist.
7. What experience you will like to share with our readers?
Sanika Gadgil tell us “When I was 18 I used to play a small role in a play, I only had one work that was to go on stage show my face pick up something and come back. So at a point I was irritated ki yaar yeh kya hai, iski koi roz rehearsal karta hai kya,why am I travelling everyday to do this? But I kept on doing it and one day there was a small activity where we were told to show a scenario without speaking a word and I was thinking and thinking what to do. So I acted like I am in a local train and sab dhakka bukki chal rahi hai and I suddenly sneeze! (There wasn’t corona then! Otherwise this scenario had been different now!(laughs) and then a lady is seeing me like I have done a crime, so I turn awkward! But then I had a realisation that mucous of my nose is fallen on her hand! And then I awkwardly wipe it up. The fun fact was that I have never experienced such kind of situation but I was able to portray the situation all out of imagination and make my audiences laugh. All started laughing and then I practically realised ,acting is has its roots in reality and wings in imagination. You can be a good actor if you observe well. And everything happens for a reason, that small role can teach something really really useful.”
8. What is something valuable you learned in this whole journey?
Sanika Gadgil: I learned to be grateful for everything and owe my success to those who were by my side in the journey. I can’t be enough thankful to my parents, my family, my teachers who have always shown confidence in me and their best wishes and blessings have made a huge contribution in my growth and I will always remember this and keep myself grounded. Last but not the least my friends and co-actors have been very supportive in the process.
9. What is one important thing in your bucket list that you like to share?
Sanika Gadgil: In my college days I used to teach kathak in an orphanage. I will soon begin to teach dance to the underprivileged children,help them out in their studies. I will definately dedicate sometime in sharing my knowledge with them.
