“On the audition day, about a hundred girls were called, and all present there auditioned without the ‘Mukut’ as it was not ready. The moment I walked in, which was about late in the evening, the ‘Mukut’ arrived and I was the lucky one to wear it and give the screen test. I believe that it was sheer destiny that I am doing the role today…” says Shalini.
It surely looks quite ironic that Shalini landed in as a Goddess on the small screen, after playing a negative role. “No one earlier believed that with the innocent face I had, I could play a negative character; but it went so well, and I was quite popular for that, and here too, I cannot believe that I could play such a strong and powerful role, but I guess as an actor it’s important for one to be highly versatile, and it surely seems that I’ve done that…” , opines Shalini as she signs off.
