I would love to play iconic Meena Kumari in her bio-pic: Karishma Sharma

Charismatic TV actress and danseuse Karishma Sharma is known for her gorgeous oomph and sensuous shapely figure. Having started off with the popular TV show 'Pavitra Rishta' she acted in over six different TV shows. Known for her dare-bare-sensuous title role in the web-series 'Ragini MMS Returns', Karishma has now plunged into the reality telly zone. Currently she is making waves in the hilarious ongoing 'Optimystix' reality show 'Comedy Circus' (new season) on Sony TV every Saturday-Sunday in the 9.30 pm slot. Afternoon D & C connected with the exuberant hot babe of showbiz for an exclusive candid tête-à-tête: Excerpts:

Why did you want to get into the comedy reality zone?
Hmm. I always love challenges of doing something daringly different and stepping out of my comfort zone. They say, it's tough to make people laugh. So I felt, why not prove my caliber in a laugh-out-loud, stand-up reality comedy genre. 'Comedy Circus' on Sony marks my debut in this hansi-mazaak-masti ki duniya.

Being a competitive show, were you apprehensive initially?
Of course, shuru shuru mein, when I first auditioned, I was slightly skeptical and diffident. That's because I was required to play a diverse variety of comic characters. Right from the desi Marathi, Gujarati to a British firangi girl and many more. But then I looked at it positively. I was getting to learn so much in spontaneous comic-timing and cues and yet getting paid for it; And I am also laughing heartily at the gags and punch-lines during the rehearsals.

Are the celeb-judges and co-stars supportive since you are new to comedy?
Definitely! Both Sohail Khan-sir and Archana Puran Singh-ma'am are always encouraging me to perform better in every next act. Every time I perform I sneak a furtive glance at Archana-jee to check if she has burst out laughing. That's like a major morale-booster for me. My seasoned comedy-maestro actors Mubeen, Siddharth and Balraj are always helpful towards me improving and getting the best out of me.

You recently shot for a fabulous filmy song with superstar Hrithik Roshan...
It's for this Hindi bio-pic movie 'Super 30'. Can you believe it, that I am not a trained dancer and I frankly told the director Vikas ('Queen') Bahl that I can't dance. Strangely Vikas-ji and the choreographer had the confidence that I could pull it off. Luckily, it went off very well, because I guess I have a cool music and rhythm sense. It was a surreal learning experience, because mega-star Hrithik-jee is such an awesome dancer. Actually, I have also completed a movie titled 'Hotel Milan' where I play a different provocative-rebel role.

You have this fixation for legendary retro-movie-actress Meena Kumari?                                                 
Maybe I am one of those exceptional actresses from today's young generation whose top favourite is iconic Meena Kumari-jee. You know, I am so well-versed on facts relating to her life and career. She emotes agony and ecstasy, mainly with her eloquent eyes in all her movies. If some eminent director decides to make a bio-pic on Meena-jee, I would love to perform her role, because I can immensely relate to her.
