New Delhi: TV actress Sumona Chakravarti says she loved doing theatre but decided to make a switch to television as it was not "paying enough".

The 29-year-old actor says television has made her career and has given her the chances to explore films as well.

In an interview with PTI Sumona says, "I love the craft of acting and I do theatre, television and films only because I love acting. But I realised theatre was not paying enough so I looked at television and after several years of hardships I got my due because of television and eventually films happened."

Sumona's big TV break came with Sony Entertainment Television show, "Bade Achhe Lagte Hain" in which she played a negative character.

"When I played a grey shade in "Bade Aache Lagte Hai" I was only getting offers for negative parts for the next six months. With 'The Kapil Sharma Show' everybody wants to offer me comedy parts only. So, it does happen for a bit but then I am choosy about work and I do wait for a good offer to come my way," she says.

Sumona says she makes sure every show that she does is different. Her next project is "Dev", a finite thriller series.

"With the concept of finite series you know there is a start and end to the show. It is not a regular show. It is fictionalized mystery thriller, there is drama and romance as well."
In the show, Sumona plays the part of Meera Banerjee, a single mother. The show also features Ashish Chowdhry in the lead role.

Meera has had a failed relationship, she is a young mother, who has a seven-year-old son. She talks to the dead people and spirits. Fate brings her into the life of Dev. Though they are at loggerheads when they meet, eventually they become closest of allies."

To be aired on Colors TV channel, "Dev" will premiere on August 5.
