People Love to Hate her. Her first major role, as Meera Singhania in Balaji's 'Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi', catapulted Shubhavi to instant stardom..and there was no looking back. With conviction and strength in the characters she plays, Shubhavi has won herself fans and admirers around the globe.
Her second innings, in Balaji's Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii has, once again, won her rave reviews. Telly Buzz caught up with Shubhavi, to find out more..
Welcome Back, Shubhavi...How is it to work in Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki? "It is again a very good experience. I get to play a lawyer for the second time here. I entered Kyunki last year, exactly in September; now, I enter Kahaani this September. Ekta and Balaji have always been lucky for me. Touch wood."
Is this a cameo or is it that the character is going to develop? "No, it is certainly not a cameo. The character is going to develop. The major twist in the tale will be unfolded soon."
Tell us something about your role? "I cannot reveal much about the way my character is going to develop. But speaking of it, I love playing Rishika and I like to play a Bengali. I love my look, the big bindi, kaajal in my eyes, sporting semi-bengali sarees. Ekta has always given me powerful roles. The most fascinating thing is that she has always given me wonderful names. Meera Singhania and Rishika Rai Choudhury, I simply love the names!"
How is it working with Ekta again?" Its really great to get back to Balaji Productions. Last year, it was Kyunki and now it is Kahaani. These are Ekta's two babies, so its really nice."
Wishing Shubhavi All the Very Best for her Second innings with Ekta...
