Sanika Gadgil talks about acting,career and life.



Sanika Gadgil being a sweet and generous person shares her real life experiences, her thoughts, her goals and what type of person she is with us.Believe us or not she’s one of the most interesting people we interviewed. Just like an open book she wants to live it all and experience it to fullest! She also believes ‘Work is worship’ and whatever the task is allotted to her she believes in giving her 100% no matter what!

May it be her famous character Nisha from serial Molkarinbai or Meghana from Maza Hoshil Na she has truly done justice to the curated characters which looks like written perfectly for her. She is such a treat to watch when it comes to portraying a character that should be as natural as designed.

We and some of her fans were excited to know about her journey and her life and we could barely find a source to do so. So team Paradox reached Sanika Gadgil and asked some questions that all of us wanted to know.


Sanika Gadgil: I can’t say acting was my passion, but the craft always fascinated me and I thought that this is something I want to be good at. I was always keen to discover myself as an actor and evolve in it. Yeah, waise to waqt ne hi kiya haseen sitam because over the journey I discovered small and big edges of acting and fell in love with it.

2. We have been following your dance videos and the steps you were grooving at were just so graceful ! So your dance skills helped you in

Sanika Gadgil: : Well I have learned kathak ( I am a kathak Visharad), I took admission in Dahanukar college(junior college) St.Andrews College(degree college) for the cultural background it has, so that I can participate in various events and BMM festivals that take place in the college(olio named english drama competition)but unfortunately in my second year olio stopped taking place and the reason for which I joined the college wasn’t fulfilled. But luckily I got selected for a play named ‘Mughal-E-Azam’ which had kathak dancers from all over India, this experience enriched me emotionally, physically and professionally as well as evolved my skills. I found it as one of the turning point that shaped me as a human being.

3. If given a chance to play a bollywood character,which character it would be and why?

Sanika Gadgil: Well there are many iconic characters that bollywood gave us, its hard to choose just one, but Illena Dcruz’s character from Barfi is really a role that I would love to explore and Ranbir Kapoors character Ved from Tamasha is such a challenging yet effortless role, it would really be a challenge and something I want to try out!

4. What are your personal favourites from the Marathi industry?

Sanika Gadgil: This is a hard one! Marathi industry gave us gem of actors and choosing between them is really tough, like it largely depends upon the characters that they have portrayed. Like I have always been a fan of Subhodh Bhave sir, his versatility and the amount of hardwork he puts in whether it is on TV or in cinemas it’s just beyond appreciation and Shubhangi Gokhale mam too. Also not to forget Sukanya Mone mam,she is also among the actors I always look upto!

5.How’s been your experience working on sets of Maza Hoshil Na?

Sanika Gadgil: Its been amazing, like you get to work among different,experienced and best actors of the industry. The senior actors teach me lot about improvisation.The director has also played a major role in building up the character Meghana. Gautami and Virajas have been amazing so far, we discuss over our careersand more importantly there is mutual respect among us. It is not a long running character but surely it a long lasting character that I will take with me for long span of time.

6.Do you find theatre more challenging as compared to TV?

Sanika Gadgil: Actually I think both the platforms have its own challenges and different experiences. There are perks of theatre that there is no room for mistakes but it doesn’t allow retakes so its one time, give your best shot. Its like you are done once then you are done. As of television its like you have to maintain the constant emotions and expressions till the best shot comes out. In my personal opinion as an actor I want to explore every platform whether that be OTT or theatre, everything has its own beauty to be explored by an artist.

7. What experience you will like to share with our readers?

Sanika Gadgil tell us “When I was 18 I used to play a small role in a play, I only had one work that was to go on stage show my face pick up something and come back. So at a point I was irritated ki yaar yeh kya hai, iski koi roz rehearsal karta hai kya,why am I travelling everyday to do this? But I kept on doing it and one day there was a small activity where we were told to show a scenario without speaking a word and I was thinking and thinking what to do. So I acted like I am in a local train and sab dhakka bukki chal rahi hai and I suddenly sneeze! (There wasn’t corona then! Otherwise this scenario had been different now!(laughs) and then a lady is seeing me like I have done a crime, so I turn awkward! But then I had a realisation that mucous of my nose is fallen on her hand! And then I awkwardly wipe it up. The fun fact was that I have never experienced such kind of situation but I was able to portray the situation all out of imagination and make my audiences laugh. All started laughing and then I practically realised ,acting is has its roots in reality and wings in imagination. You can be a good actor if you observe well. And everything happens for a reason, that small role can teach something really really useful.”

8. What is something valuable you learned in this whole journey?

Sanika Gadgil: I learned to be grateful for everything and owe my success to those who were by my side in the journey. I can’t be enough thankful to my parents, my family, my teachers who have always shown confidence in me and their best wishes and blessings have made a huge contribution in my growth and I will always remember this and keep myself grounded. Last but not the least my friends and co-actors have been very supportive in the process.

9. What is one important thing in your bucket list that you like to share?

Sanika Gadgil: In my college days I used to teach kathak in an orphanage. I will soon begin to teach dance to the underprivileged children,help them out in their studies. I will definately dedicate sometime in sharing my knowledge with them.

Nishtha Sharma voice India winner

We had an awesome interview session with her on Paradox. She shared her story and views during the live interview session. Here we would love to share an interview with you.

Q. When you started your journey as a singer? 


“My Mom and dad have an institute, so some of my friends from the institute, filled out my form for the Indian idol junior. There was no preplanning – luckily, I was selected from Lucknow and then I went to Delhi. I was qualified and received a golden ticket to Mumbai. There were 3 theatre rounds in Mumbai and I cleared 2 of them. At that time a felt bad but then I realised I have to do something in singing that will make my parents feel proud. Then I realised reality shows were the opportunity for me. Soon in 2016 I participated in voice India kids season 1 and the journey being a singer was started with blessings of many people.”

Q. Which was the first song you prepared for your first audition?


Sorry but at that time I was little young and now I am not able to recall the song particularly. But during the super star singer there I was, which I have uploaded on you-Tube called ‘Ghar more pardesiya’. This song received lot of love from people and crossed 1 MILLION views. Many people loved that song and I would love to sing few lines of it”.

Q. What were your obstacles during this musical journey and how you faced that situation?


“Talking about the obstacles there no such a big obstacle till now, with God’s grace and people blessings everything is going fine. But when was part of a reality show I realised I don’t have a collection of prepared songs, that time it was bit tough for me but soon later I stared working on songs and listening more songs. There was rejection in audition at many points but I think that’s part of journey. I believe rising and learning up for the failures is the key to achieve everything you dreamt of. If you are bouncing back to achieve something in life, for sure the god will be by your side.”

Q. During your journey how social media helped you or what’s the importance of social media in your journey? 


“I wasn’t much aware of the social media in initial days but soon after voice I started being on social media. It really helps me to connect with people out there. So, I can connect with them, talk with them. I feel very happy when I see the love coming out from fan pages and people out there and always think it’s only the mean that have connected many people with me which I wasn’t aware of. I feel very blessed to get such a bag of love from people and I try to interact with many people. Social media is my partner which helps me to send my love and gratitude to all the people via my songs. And thanks all of you being part of journey and I love you all”.

Q. If you were not into singing then in which field you would be? 


I am good at studies; you will not believe but I am among the studious students. If was not into singing then I would definitely achieve something big into this field. I am kind of person who likes to happen things according to me. It like I say then soon people should do it or listen to me. So being good at studies I think I would be a CEO of a company or something like that.”

Q. How you manage to balance your music and studies simultaneously?


Actually, my mom and dad always thought me the importance of the studies in life. I know the studying will actually help you a lot, to know more about things and it will upgrade our vision to see world. Studying is as important as music in my life. Talking truly education is base and music are my toppings. I give nearly equal time to both the things. It not hard to manage the things when you actually love to do them, so you will never find any excuses to cut off your studies. Yea I love doing it.”

Q. What are your future plans?


“I was part of reality shows. I won the voice and I was among finalist in one. Then recently I was been announced as a brand ambassador of ‘beti baccho beti padao’. I wanted to do something unforgettable in singing field and always dream to see myself in the list of top singers. I always wanted to be a playback singer and I am pretty active on social media I keep posting the contents. Its pleasure to be able to connect to people who follows me for the music and entertainment and keep them entertained all the time with my music.”

Q. Whom do you consider as role models?


“Talking about models there are many personalities out there. I keep learning from many of them and learned many things from my mom and dad. As I mentioned I wanted to be playback singer. So, I wanted to be like Latta ji, Asha ji, Shreya ji. I get motivation from them and wanted to achieve something like them in my life.”

Q. As you are the brand ambassador of ‘beti bachoo beti padao’ so how you look up to it? what you want to tell us about this thing?


actually, this was announced when I was in the Mumbai at that time. When I came back from the Mumbai there was a ceremony and I was told now you are the brand ambassador. So, from that day my motive was, there is more importance of the girls in every field.  We should support the girls. There are many places where the girls are not given a chance to follow their passion and not even a support to do things in life.

I always try to encourage the girls and make people aware of things by arranging multiple virtual meets. I think everyone should get encouragement including young and old peoples out there to do something in their life. They have this right but just they are unaware of it. I try to spread awareness and encouragement among the masses. During the session many people says I wanted to be like Nishtha but I always say be I wish you achieve everything you wanted to be and not like but more than that.”

Q. What are views on feminism as because many people out there are taking it in a wrong way? what do you think about it?


“I think there should be no discrimination. I always say everyone has own rights. The boys have their own rights and girls have them too. I think sometimes the things gets messed up, people take it in a wrong way. Recently I was called at the event and there was I long jump competition, the girls and boys both of them participated into it. They asked me my views on competition. I said want to appreciate all of them as because everyone has done a hard work to achieve it. The boys and girls have done same amount of hard work. I don’t want it to happen that the hard work and achievements of boys should get dissolve they should be appreciated for that and girls too.

I think both of them are on same side and will walk together at every step. Everyone should be given equal rights and respect, actually they have the rights. And it happens sometimes people take it in little wrong way but soon everyone will understand this thing with time.”

Which was disheartening.

Question 6
You have been talking about numbers. How important is the followers number for you?

Tirth : followers are important. It is one source which motivates you to be who you are and to make content to make them happy . Numbers are important because that tells me where I am going with this content creation.
