Actress Pankhuri Awasthy plays the new officer who is, in fact, a robot.
We got in touch with Pankhuri and asked the gorgeous actress about her husband Gautam’s reaction on her bagging ‘Maddam Sir’, she said,“I obviously discuss with him if anything comes my way. He already knew that I’m in talks for the show and the character. The character had an element of intrigue and we were both inquisitive for it to unfold. It’s very rare that somebody has played a robot on television. I mean, it’s not an everyday thing and that made us all the more excited”.
When asked about what prompted her to take up the show, Pankhuri added, “I always prefer doing diverse roles. If you see my journey, I have done many different characters; be it Draupadi, Razia Sultan, Amla among others. This character was also something that I haven’t done before. The entire brief of the character was quite fascinating and thus I grabbed the offer”.
