Viewers should have the feeling of filtering the content they are consuming
In addition to playing a stubborn cop in ' FIR TREE.' , one of the longest-running Indian television series, Kavita has also made a series of Punjabi movies. “In the middle, I have rejected so many offers of reality shows. I don't want to be part of this madness where people keep doing reality shows with aggressive content that is not suitable for sitting and watching with their families. In reality shows, you don't know what will be released, what direction it will take and how they will see you on the screen. I can't do anything just for money and for staying relevant in the industry. I will go on a walk and challenge myself instead of doing something pointless, says the actress, and adds: I don't have children, nor do I plan to have them, but I wonder how people allow their young children to see reality shows. on television that shows people fighting each other, abusing each other and what not! How do people entertain themselves with all that? It just makes me furious. As a spectator, there must be a certain sense of filtering and people must choose what they are consuming and allow their children to consume, as well as the food we eat. Watching bad content on TV is like eating fried food even though the doctor warns you about its health effects.

I was very interested in understanding the food that one should eat and did my research on the same. I read more about the different types of allergies and foods that adapt to one's blood group. Now, I know what is best for me. In fact, my husband and I are working to build our own farm where we will grow our own vegetables and there will also be a yogashala . I would like to be exposed to more shastras and learn more yoga. asanas .”
