Rashami Desai: I think 2017 was good and 2018 will be even better!


Mumbai, Jan. 3 -- Most of her peers partied in and out of Mumbai on New Year's Eve, but actor Rashami Desai took off to Jammu and Kashmir to give a send-off to 2017 in her own way. "I was in Vaishno Devi," says the Uttaran actor.
Rashami flew to the state on December 31 with a group of friends and visited the holy temple on January 1. She says, "I partied a lot all year and wasn't in the mood to have another party. I wanted to do something different, so the decision to visit Vaishno Devi was a sudden one. Diwali and New Year's Eve are two important days in the year for me, and I like to celebrate them in a way that would be memorable. I visit Vaishno Devi every year, and so it felt good to be here and bring in the New Year."
Talking about the year gone by, Rashami says it was "interesting". The actor says, "A lot changed in my life in the past year, and many new and beautiful things have happened. I wasn't sure of some projects and didn't want to do them, but they worked out for me. I started a new life (after her divorce from actor Nandish Sandhu) and I found a new Rashami this year. Last year, I reflected on my journey and my work. I am glad to have the love and support of my family, old friends and peers. I think 2017 was good and 2018 will be even better. I'm very excited about this year."
After a hiatus of three years, Rashami starred in a daily soap in 2017. However, her character has been missing from the show for the past few weeks, and it's rumoured that her character will be brought back with a bang.
Meanwhile, her co-star Sidharth Shukla bid farewell to the show citing creative differences, but rumours were that his spat with costars and behaviour on the sets led to his exit. 
Ask Rashami about Sidharth's exit, and she says, "I was not in town when that happened, so I would not be able to comment on it." Rashami admits that she is in "touch with him". "I know why it happened, but there is no point talking about it. He is happy with his decision, so I will respect that," she says.
