“OTT platforms are coming up with really good concepts. Their budget is also good and everything is nice about it. But TV would never stop. There are so many shows which people are hooked to. There are shows which have been going on for so many years with good ratings and that proves TV is still in demand.

“I love television and it’s no less than any other medium,” she shared.

Sheela is currently seen portraying the character of Dadi in ‘Rabb Se Hai Dua’.

Sharing more about her role, she added: “My character Dadi is very interesting. Being head of the family, she has a say in everything happening in the house. I feel very happy about it. In my personal life I have not become a Dadi, but in the show she is a very happening Dadi - just the way I am - so it makes me feel happy."
