Kanica Maheshwari, who plays Rajkumari Bhoomi in Star Plus’ Raja Ki Aayegi Barat is having a tough time as she has to go thro’ all the hardships, starting from an atta falling sequence followed by a haldi falling sequence, to a chakki pisso sequence in the show. If this was not enough, the Rajkumari is now made to stay in a village as punishment for being part of Rani’s evil plans.
And the hardships continue in the village too, as she is shown falling into khichad in one scene, milking a cow in another, and above all, she is made to remove the cow dung too!!
The actress has been making regular visits to the parlor ever since all this began. “When the Haldi and atta fell on my head, my hair went for a toss. I use my natural hair in the show, so had to run to the parlor as soon as I finished both the scenes to give my hair a clean and a wash”, quips the actress.
“When I fell in the gutter, I had to go and get my pedicure done”, adds she.
However, the toughest experience was when she had to milk the cow. “I had never shot so close with any animal, and to sit near the cow and milk it, was the toughest scene for me. You never know what the animal will do the next second. My heart was almost in my mouth as I feared getting kicked by the animal”, verbalizes Kanica.
Kanica in fact had a talk with the creative team too, to give her a break from such demanding scenes. “But they said the story needs all this, and Bhoomi has to get all the punishment for whatever she has done”, states the charming actress.
All said and done, nothing has stopped the talented actress from delivering her best for every scene. “Though I had trouble doing the scenes, I have moved on with a lot of gumption”, concludes the actress.
Kudos to Kanica for being a perfect sport!!
