Suzanne Bernert, an indian actress who was born in Germany is quite known for her appearance in the Hindi movies and serials. She is known for her works in movies like Ramdhanu- The Rainbow, Honeymoon Travels PVT. LTD. and serials like Kasauti Zindagi Ki, Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat and Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. Recently she came up for an interview with Paradox and answered some of the interesting questions.
Lets have a look at the Question which she answered during the live interview on Paradox India.
Suzanne Bernert: Yes, acting has been my forever dream since my childhood, but being an actress in the Indian film Industry was never planned. I started acting in Germany, had my stage debut there. It was just a accidental encounter with a film director from India when I was in Dubai.
Suzanne: There is something very addictive about the city. You miss it when you are not here. Despite of the Pandemic times there is always something happening here which I like, the thing which I don’t like is the infrastructure here, no matter what we build, we still have more people in the city.
Suzanne: Yes I am, I enjoy eating Vadapav but there has to be a very little amount of spices in that, because still I am not habitual to the spicy food of India. I need to take my Ayurvedic pills after having spicy food cause it causes me stomach ache or acidity. Chat and PaniPuri is also one of my favourite street food, I find D-Mart having good PaniPuri stalls.
Suzanne: I had a lot of struggle with the food, the climate and the language. I got the script, but could not understand because I don’t know Hindi. There was a lot of things going on the set at a time, so there is a very less possibility of getting help from others cause everyone is assigned with a work to complete within the time. This was the struggle I faced but my collegues used to help me with that.
Suzanne Bernert: All the shows have a different kind of experience which is unique. One thing I can say is that I always had a very good team in each show. For a time being they become your family, because you meet them everyday, work with them everyday and talk to them everyday. So there is always a good experience and no comparison between any show. I feel very blessed that I have done so many shows.
Suzanne Bernert: I am having web series as my upcoming projects which are kind of related to T.V but are short termed. As of now, I just want to be on set everyday, work everyday. And you never know what comes because I played the roles of Daughter in law in the initial days a lot and then suddenly got something different. Something different always comes to your way from what you expect.
Suzanne: My husband, Akhil Mishra. Because sometimes you get so busy with the work that youi don’t even get time for eachother, so working togeather is always fun. Sometimes he used to come to the set during the Ashoka serial and similarly I visit him during the shoot of Uttran.
Suzanne Bernert: The Marathi and the Bengali movies always seems like an family project because they are small and intimate. Whereas in Hindi movies there are a lot of people and too many things going on. You want to be nice with everyone but at the same time you don’t know everyone. And my recent Malayalam movie experience was also very good, I would love to more of South Indian movies.
Suzanne: I started Yoga in the lockdown. And I feel it has helped me a lot, I feel more focused more controlled on my breath, my tune, my acting. So I would recommend everyone to start practicing Yoga and meditation.
How do you manage your Personal and Professional life?
Suzanne: I believe in go with the flow and also we don’t have children so that also makes it quite easy to manage both.
What would you consider as your greatest achievement till date?
Suzanne: I think winning the hearts of all the people here is my greatest achievement. The show, Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat was the reason for all my achievements, because after that show I got recognized by the people on the streets on South Bombay.
How was your experience in playing the role of Sonia Gandhi in the movie, Accidental Prime Minister?
Suzanne: Playing a role of someone who is alive is always challenging. I used to watch her videos on repeat and tried to be real. I used to be me, when I wear the saree and the wig, but the moment I put the spectacles on it makes me feel the character. There was something in the glasses which made me Sonia Gandhi.
Who is your role model?
Suzanne: I think you take different things from different people. My mother, my grandmother, my husband are my role models. And in acting, Austrian actor named Klaus Maria Brandauer, whom I also met once.
What are your favouraite movies?
Suzanne: There are so many of them. For T.V show I would say Blacklist and in movie I saw Out Of Africa with the same emotions after 20 years. Sometimes I also like to watch the 90’s movies.
Suzanne: I came across some such haters on twitter. I love to grow from the trolls by the unhappy people who want you to be unhappy.
How was yor experience with the show 7RCR?
Suzanne: We had roles on almost all the big political leaders of the country. We took actual photographs and recreated the whole incidents of their past life and that was the show.
Suzanne: It was shot in the year 2019, but came out the previous year. It was a similar experience as of Ashoka serial, and I also did Jhansi Ki Rani with them, which was the third project, so it felt like all the familiar faces and for the first time when I worked with the foreign directors. It was a little hard in understanding their slangs for the first time, but was a pleasant experience gradually.
Anything about Amir Khan?
Suzanne: He is a very normal guy. Working with him and achieve what we had at time was all about the chemistry infront of the camera. Which also makes it one of my favoiraite projects. He also makes you feel really confident.
What role preferances you would choose for your future projects?
Suzanne: I always find that whatever I get offered is more than what I was imagining, so it upto the universe about my future roles.
Any message to the City Of Dreams, Mumbai?
Suzanne: Just keep working because it is a happening city. There is always something happening here, which is very good. So just Never Give Up.
What are your future projects?
Suzanne: if everything goes well, hopefully I will be working and will be on the sets again. It was supposed to be in the may but it is already over. I cannot reveal the names but I am very much excited for them.
