Saiyami Kher: Depressions are an important part of acting career


Actress feels reassured to work with talented filmmakers, says her five-year career has had many “ups and downs”

It’s been five years since Mirzya (2016) was released and actor Saiyami Kher admits his career has “been a roller coaster ride with lots of ups and downs”.

“The lows taught me a lot and made me a stronger person and actor. The highs are worth the wait,” says Kher, who “feels lucky” to have worked with a number of talented filmmakers.


Talking about what has changed since her debut, she shares, “The biggest change since my debut was that before, I was stuck in the lows, but now I realize that is a very important part of this beautiful travel. It is reassuring when names such as Neeraj Pandey, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, Anurag Kashyap, Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK and others trust my work. With each project, you learn and grow. My attempt has always been to play a new character and try to portray the most honest version of that life. I love being on a film set and I try to improve and grow with each project.

Kher, who was last seen in one of the anthology series episodes, Unpaused, will next be seen in Tiwary director Faadu with Pavail Gulati. The musical film is Kher’s first digital album. “From her very first film, Ms. Ashwiny has been an advocate for female storytelling in Bollywood. What makes Ashwiny’s films unique is that they convey bold messages while remaining within the framework of Indian culture. I have always been a fan of her work because in every story she leaves audiences with an afterthought and that is exactly what meaningful cinema should do.Kher will also be seen in R Balki’s upcoming sports drama Ghoomer starring Abhishek Bachchan.
