Samikssha says that the situation is scary, and as an actor, she can’t be choosy about work right now. “I have been very selective with my work. I never wanted to do
saas-bahu shows, I have always looked forward to something that challenges me as an actor. But I don’t think I can be choosy in the current situation. I will have to take up whatever comes my way,” she says.
In a bid to have better fortune, she had also changed the spelling of her name recently. “I believe in numerology, and I think numbers do play an important role in our lives, so I added an extra ‘s’ in my name and removed the ‘h’ from my surname.

I am looking for work now and really want the situation to get better as soon as possible,” she shares.
