Speaking about how much important it is to stay happy and strong, ace TV producer Nivedita Basu says mentally one should stay strong in this industry.
Spilling beans on importance of being mentally strong and happy, producer Nivedita Basu says mentally one should stay strong in this industry.
Producer-director Nivedita Basu, who has served as the creative director on many top shows like Kasautii Zindagi Kay, Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, Hum Paanch and Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki says in this highly competitive industry it is essential to stay mentally strong and happy. Nivedita feels disheartened to hear about suicide cases and says people should rather find ways to stay happy and positive.
On this point, she adds, “Mentally you should make yourself strong to be happy with yourself. One must always engage themselves, like cooking at home, practicing yoga. Everything can be therapeutic, doing art, craft, drawing, dancing, singing, etc you have to find ways to engage yourself the moment your mind is empty is when these negatives thoughts come”.
The Meri Awaaz Hi Pehchaan Hai producer says being mentally happy is more important to her and that she doesn’t bother much about her physicality and looks and explaining this point, she said, “In today’s day and time especially the younger people who are under 30 years are more bothered about the external looks. There are some above 30 years also who tend to think about physical looks because of social media as everyone here is competing to get more endorsements, trying to look thin and fit”.
Nivedita, who has directed Rashami Desai and Tanuj Virwani starrer web series Tandoor, says not just celebrities but even the common man is suffering from depression and anxiety. Elucidating on the same, she says, “I know so many school and college kids who suffer from it, from the competition, from other things. It is present everywhere but because celebrities are known entities and everyone wants to know what is going on with these actors it comes more in the limelight”.
To overcome depression and anxiety Nivedita says good support system in terms of family and friends is the best way to engage oneself and on this she added, “Meditation helps a lot, you have to get used to spending time with yourself, go for walks on a daily basis so when you go out, you see people around you, it engages your mind. It also gets me to think because I am a writer and to keep myself occupied I watch a lot of content”.
