Our very own Dadisa who is in her seventies is quite an energetic woman. We wonder how she manages two daily soaps Balika Vadhu and Saat Phere at a time and that too she plays significant roles in both. Where artists are always in the news for falling ill or collapsing on the sets, failing to cope up with the highly hectic schedule we haven't heard the same happening with our Dadisa.
"The present generation relies mostly on beverages like samosa, chatt and stuffs. Half of the time they are drinking Diet Coke or Pepsi and most of the time they say they are on strict diet, avoiding food even when they are hungry. I like to eat healthy food rather than munching samosas and stuffs. I keep a normal well maintained diet of healthy food, which is the reason I don't keep falling on the sets like other artists", says Surekha.
She takes the pain of travelling to two different sets and both of them are located on the opposite ends of the western suburbs. The Balika Vadhu"s set is in Vasai whereas Saat Phere's set is in Kandivali. She travels ten days a month and we guess all her healthy eating habit comes to her use a lot while traveling and shooting. “Most of my days are booked with Balika Vadhu, because there I have a bigger role to perform. When I am not shooting for Balika Vadhu, I make it a point to shoot for Saat Phere. Sometimes the two shoots turn out to be on the same day. But being professional one has to make sure that the producer doesn't suffer because of you and hence I put in a little bit more effort and manage both the shoots.", says Surekha.
