Hong Kong, Sep 19 (IANS) She has been a successful model before stepping into Bollywood with films like “I Hate Luv Storys” and “Roar: Tigers of the Sundarbans”. Model-turned-actress Himarsha Venkatsamy, who will be next seen in TV show “Life Mein Ek Baar”, says that she would love to do those works that she can be proud of.
“I always wanted to get everything in life and there was never a set plan to get into the industry. While I was studying, I was modelling part time but it was not main income and main line of work. Life in a way has its own journey and own adventure.
“I studied drama and I learnt theatre hence it was a natural progression to get into acting because I do love acting, so yes, I can do anything but want to do great work that I can love and be proud of. My hands are open to do everything,” Himarsha told IANS.
After three successful seasons, lifestyle and travel channel FOX Life rolled out the next season of its series “Life Mein Ek Baar” in Hong Kong – the Asia’s World City.
The show brings together celebrities Sana Saeed, Karan Kundra, Natalie Di Luccio along with Himarsha who discover the adventurous side of life in Hong Kong. From playing a game of Rugby with the locals, to taking Tai Chi class, to Dragon Boat racing and much more, the show will bring fresh and exhilarating journey of these celebrities during their stay in the country.
In a way it will push each other out of their comfort zones, tackling their fears head on and taking a big bite out of life.
Asked how does it feel to do a travel show, Himarsha said: “I always wanted to do travel shows and I feel like I am living the dream. It is the place where I wanted to be. I am extremely blessed of what life has given to be .”
As far as modelling is concerned, she says that she had never said no to anything.
“I still do shows for close friends so I am trying to do things that I find fruitful. I wanted to do things that I am happy doing. I feel that if I will draw a line then I wont be able to evolve as a person.
The show will premiere on October 20 and will air every Monday and Tuesday on FOX Life.
