Actress Karuna Pandey, who was recently seen in the Nawazuddin Siddiqui-starrer "Motichoor Chaknachoor", says she has had a satisfying and fruitful career on television.

"I started in 2005 with Rajshri Production's 'Woh Rehne Waali Mehlon Ki' and then I did six shows with the same production house. Then I did 'Bhootwala Serial'. My show 'Bhaage Re Mann', where I played the protagonist, and 'Devanshi', where I played the self-proclaimed Godmother, were both appreciated by the audience. I have had a very satisfying and fruitful career on television," she said.

"Luckily, the perception that TV actors cannot get good roles in films is no more valid. The industry has changed and today you need to be a good actor. In my view, the key difference is time -- you get more time to perfect your performance in films; TV serials do not give you that much time," she said, pointing out the difference between working in a film and a TV show.

Today there are multiple mediums and she is happy to have worked on almost all of them.

"I have also been a theatre actor. After all these years, I have realised that the only thing that matters is your acting skills. I have always done pivotal roles in television shows. In films, a good character with a good banner is part of my wish list. As an actor, I am open to all kinds of mediums," she said.IANS
