Nia Sharma is one of the highest-paid actresses in the television industry. She made her acting debut with the show Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hai and went on to feature in shows like Jamai Raja and more. Her last stint on TV was in the show Naagin, where she played the supernatural character. Since then, Nia has worked in several music videos.

We sat down with Nia Sharma for a conversation about her music video titled Hairaan recently. In an exclusive interview with Bollywood Bubble, the actress opened up about her break from acting.

Nia said that she has not taken a break from acting. She said, “Hum woh log nahi hai jo voluntarily breaks lenge (I am not that person who will take breaks voluntarily). I am not in that position. I’m still a beggar, who needs work, who needs money. I can never say that I need a break. I will never need a break in my life. I need work. I want work.”

The actress further added, “At the same time, yes, I choose. I want to wait for the right one. And woh waiting kabhi apki 6 mahine hoti hai, kabhi saalon lag jaate hai, kabhi char saal lag jaate hai (And the waiting can be 6 months long, a year long, or it can take years too). That is unfortunately a drawback or a pitfall of what we are in. Sometimes, I feel really bad, very very let down at times.”

Sharma also shared that she she has not auditioned for a while now. She said, “I think I have stopped moving. Mereko aisa lagta hai koi break lag gaya hai. Na toh I have auditioned in a while for anything. Anything that comes to me on my phone, they ask me for my money, and the call never comes back. Auditions toh bohot door ki baat hai (Auditions are something far off). For me, everything has kind of stopped. The day it comes, whatever comes, whatever big comes, I will take it, I will want to take it.
