Anita Hassanandani aka Shagun of "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein" is on top of her game right now, but there was a time when she was very upset with her career graph.

During an interview with The Asian Age, the TV star spilt the beans on how the failure of one of her films hit her hard.

"I had done a film called Koi Aap Sa with Aftab Shivdasani. I had put in a lot of effort and was sure it would do well. However, when the film flopped, I went into depression for six months," she told the leading daily.

But those few months also taught her an important lesson. Now, Anita says she doesn't believe in attaching herself too much with the fate of her projects. But, that doesn't indicate she isn't ambitious, it only means she is doesn't allow failures to affect her adversely.

"I have my family to fall back on. I am content. I started this journey when I was 16. I have done television and movies; I have worked in the south and delivered hits and flops. Now I am married. My priorities have changes but the journey has been beautiful," she further added.

While she continues with her act on popular TV show "YHM", fans of the actress will see her in Salman Khan's production venture "Hero" and on a unique comedy show "Comedy Nights Bachao".

In the Athiya Shetty-Sooraj Pancholi starrer, Anita will be seen playing the former's sister-in-law and the actress added she has a positive and 'sweet' role to essay.

Talking about the new TV show, she said it's out of her comfort zone, adding she hopes to improve with every episode.

"Though the genre is insult comedy, it isn't like the AIB roast. The humour here still belongs to the nice, happy zone," the leading daily quoted her as saying.
