What made you say yes to this role in Mere Sai?
My family and I are devotees of Sai Baba, and getting to do a part in a show on him is no less than a blessing for me.
Tell us something about the new track and your character?
My character Rama is a very brave and independent girl who is looking out for her biological parents. She was abandoned by them outside a temple and was later adopted by a lady who she lovingly calls Ajji. The track aims to teach people a lesson that whether it is a girl or a boy, a child is a child.
Mere Sai is a show that always imparts lessons with each track. What has been your biggest take-away from the show?
Yes, indeed this show imparts wisdom and learning. My take-away is that where there’s a will there’s a way and nothing is impossible if you have faith.
What message would you like to give to society?
It’s a shame that women and girls are looked down upon. If a girl is given equal opportunities as a boy, she can reach greater heights. I believe in equality, and I credit my parents for inculcating that in me. This track in Mere Sai will highlight the struggles girls face and I hope we are able to impact some minds to bring a positive change in society. My message for all the girls out there is to fight for your rights, and that no one can make you feel inferior.
Is there any special preparation you had to do for your character?
There were quite a lot of words in Marathi that I came across, but my director helped me to learn those and deliver them properly for the camera.
What do you like the most about your on-screen character?
That she looks at the brighter side of life, and that, I feel is the need of the hour for everyone in the present times.
What are some of the achievements of your career so far?
The biggest achievement for me is that people recognise me by my name and look forward to watching me on television. I promise to keep working hard.
What are your future plans?
I would love to do a lot more work which is unique and different.
