Actor Nyra Banerjee, who is currently part of the series Hello Jee, has also been seen in many TV shows such as Divya Drishti and Excuse Me Madaam. The actor says that the shows mean a lot to her and have added a lot of value to her career.

Sharing her television experience, Nyra Banerjee was quoted saying in a media interaction, “Divya Drishti has given me so much love and popularity, in excuse me madam people have loved me, Hello Jee is booming now and people are loving it and are waiting for the second season to happen. My TV experiences have been amazing too, except for the long schedules of 15 hours.”

The actress further added, “TV reaches out to each and every person and everybody is seeing your face. You get instant popularity and also money. Those people who are very focused on earning every day and not really waiting for an opportunity like something on OTT film or series or maybe a theatrical film, for them, TV is the best way to get that stability and popularity at the same time. I made my debut with Divya Dhrishti, which is an amazing show. It connected with the younger generation and I have become a fashion icon for everybody they look up to. This has given me so much love and appreciation.”

On trying her hand in comedy, Nyra Banerjee shared what it was like to be a part of this genre for the very first time. “I thought comedy is different and it is, in fact, about knowing yourself as an actor and getting that proper timing. Working in the comedy genre was an amazing experience. I think I would like to do comedy again and I think I do it well.”

“It did not affect me much, what affected me was that I blocked for 30 days and I could not take up any other web series which was coming my way. I had about three more offers which I could not get. In fact, even on the show, I was not shooting for all 30 days. I was shooting for only 15 days and that affected me. Nevertheless, I got Hello Jee exactly after that and I am sure I will be fetching more amazing offers. God is kind,” quipped Nyra when asked about the show’s abrupt ending.

Nyra Banerjee is all excited about her upcoming projects. “I really want to have TV shows which have elements like fantasy, women empowerment, it could be anything to do with the government or even a thriller. I don’t really like these domestic saas-bahu types of shows. I am a very open-minded person and I appreciate open-minded people around me. I am a very domestic person, you won’t find me roaming here and there and attending multiple parties. I am not a social butterfly. I would like to do something which broadened my horizons and mentality, something like a dance show or an action show or something like Divya Drishti.”
