who started her career at 13, will now be seen playing the role of Sarla
Tripathi, a young housewife who speaks chaste Hindi.
Surbhi says, "When I read the script, I
wondered why was there no power to impress or attract attention? But
then I discovered that the language. I will have to say it with such a twist that
people will love it. Instead of saying I will cook khichdi, I will say, 'Main
khichdi ka nirman kar leti hoon'." Ask her if she had trouble memorising
the dialogues and she says, "Not at all. I have acted in historical and
mythological shows, so I am used to it."
she is happy to get an opportunity to work with stand-up comedian Ehsaan
Qureshi, who plays Professor Tripathi. She says, "He is a thorough
gentleman who respects women. He makes us laugh both on and off screen. He is
from Madhya Pradesh and helps us a lot with our Hindi dialogues."
Ask her what
prompted her to play Sarla, Surbhi says, "This would be a different image
from the 'Abla Naari' that actresses often portray on TV shows. It's an
interesting comedy show with a fresh cast."
