Vahbiz Dorabjee rose to fame because of the show Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani (2010). She has also been a part of interesting shows like Bahu Hamari Rajni_Kant and Savitri – Ek Prem Kahani. However, the actress has been missing from the small screen for quite a long time.
In an EXCLUSIVE interview with Koimoi, Vahbiz Dorabjee opened up about the same and revealed the reason for taking a break from TV. The actress also shared the strange roles she was offered because she is ‘healthy’. Vahbiz told Koimoi, “I had taken a break from TV because I was not very happy with offers coming by way. Every time same kind of roles used to come to me. Now they try to put me into some another category by asking me to play the hero’s bua or chachi. I said, no, not’s happening.”
She added, “After a certain point, they just want younger actors. Maybe because I’m on the healthier side, they become judgemental. But I’m going to change it. I was told about an offer that there’s a guy who’s nerdy and he doesn’t get any girl, so he falls for you. I was like ‘What do you mean? A girl like me, I cannot get good-looking guys.”
