No acting ambitions for “Roadies’’ winner Shweta

She may have won the latest season of adventure reality show “Roadies” but unlike other contestants who move to the world of showbiz, Shweta Mehta has no interest in pursuing acting.
Shweta emerged as the winner of the fourteenth season of MTV Roadies Rising and says instead of turning to films or daily soaps, she would start her own clothing line.
“I want to do reality shows but I am definitely not interested in acting. I have other dreams also to fulfil.
Acting may give me more fame and money but I am not at all interested in that,” Shweta told PTI.
“I want to start my clothing line and have found my investors too. If it works it’ll be really good because I am really interested in that,” she adds.
Originally from Haryana, Shweta had auditioned for previous seasons of the show but didn’t get through. She then went ahead to train as a Bikini Fitness Athlete and represented India in the Asian Championship.
Shweta says a lot of people did have apprehensions when she went on the show.
“So many people told me why are you taking part in the show when you’ve already won a lot of competitions. But it was my dream. I knew it wasn’t scripted, which many people thought it was, so I worked really hard and gave it my all.”
On the show, she was part of actress Neha Dhupia’s gang and Shweta says there were moments where she thought she wouldn’t win the series.
“There were several moments when I thought I won’t win. It’s difficult to survive with different people, each one thinking they’re the best, then you have performance pressure, do networking. It is mentally and physically taxing as well.
You have to be mentally strong.”
