A still from the show Excuse Me Madaam
Coming back to the professional front, Nyra’s last TV show Excuse Me Madaam went off air abruptly. “The show going off-air did not affect me much, what affected me was that I was blocked for 30 days and I could not take up any other TV show or other offers for different mediums that were coming my way at that time. Having said that, I really feel happy that I have tried my hands at the comedy genre. I got to learn so much from this show. I think I would like to do comedy again someday,” she says on a positive note.
However, Nyra says she is deliberately staying away from negative roles. “I feel that this industry stereotypes you instantly and that is why I don’t want to do negative roles so early in my career. I was offered the negative lead in the TV show Naagin but I was not very sure of doing that and so I said no to it. I want to do something more positive and empowering,” she says, adding, “Plus, I don’t really like these dramatic saas-bahu types of shows. I want to try different genres on TV like my thriller or a dance reality show.”
