- How did you land in this inspirational journey of two sisters?
Interestingly, I was not aware of this till I bagged the role in Kaatelal & Sons. I was not planning to do TV again, but this role really caught my eye. Dharampal is unlike any character I have ever essayed previously. I was moved by the grey shade of this character and the overall concept of the show.
- Megha Chakraborty and Jia Shankar are playing your daughters. Tell us about the bond you share with them…
Both the girls are fantastic co-stars. They are bubbly and bring a charming aura to the set. It is fun to shoot with them and I feel working with new people always helps a person to grow. We are all perfecting our Haryanvi dialect and starting this new journey with them is exciting.
- What is the most challenging part about your role?
Learning Haryanvi and keeping the dialect the same across all shots.
- How do you view your role?
This is the first time that I am playing a character that might seem as an antagonist, but in reality is not. In the past, I have done shows where my character was mellow or may be funny but Dharampal Thakur is proud, opinionated patriarch of the family. I am getting to essay several shades of human behaviour through this character.
- Any memory from the sets you want to share?
We have just started shooting and I think every day we are getting to know each other better. We are discovering about each other’s character more and honing our skills together.
