I lost out on two shows because I asked for a Sunday off: Shubhaavi Choksey

By Hasti Doshi

Shubhaavi Choksey is passionate about her work, but the one thing she will not compromise on is her Sunday off. The actress, who is currently seen in the show Bade Acche Lagte Hain 2, says, “When I had just started working, I would work on Sundays. But after I gave birth to my son Aarav and took a sabbatical, I was sure that once I resumed work, I would take a day off to spend time with my son and husband. It’s very important for me to spend time with my family and friends. So, I started doing this since 2012.”

Did she face any resistance from makers? She says, “Yes, of course. When I would tell people about wanting a Sunday off, they would tell me ‘Ma’am yeh to nahi ho sakta’. But I would insist and ask for it to be included in my contract. Initially they hesitated, but later people understood my point and agreed to my demand. Many makers understand my point.”

However, she did lose out on a couple of projects. She reveals, “I lost out on two shows for asking for an off on Sundays. I understand their point, but I need it because I have a son to take care of and I want to spend time with him. So on my Sundays, we go out for movie or we do different outdoor activities together. I also spend time with my husband.”

Shubhaavi feels this should become a norm in the industry. “People should get their weekly offs. Ideally, everyone should get a sunday off,” says Shubhaavi, who has acted in shows like Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, Teen Bahuraaniyan and Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki.
