Mouli Ganguly, the versatile actress who was last playing Divya Balraj in Resham Dankh has taken a break from acting. But it doesn’t mean she has given up acting. In fact the Bengali belle has turned to theatre and is doing a play entitled Kahaani Mein Twist Hai co-starring Kiran Karmarkar.
So what is Kahaani Mein Twist Hai
all about? “It is a comedy play on the relationship
between a husband and wife and their differences shown in a humorous way”, says
Speaking about the roles she has played in her career Mouli says, “I really can’t make a choice between the roles I play. For me it’s all about the acting. But if I do have to make a choice I would prefer playing a modern role as I come from the same background and find it more comfortable. But I don’t have a problem playing any other character either.”
Getting a taste of both the worlds
how different is theatre from television? “A
major difference exists between the two". Mouli claims, “The
thing in theatre is that there are no re-takes here. Everything has to
be done perfectly the first time itself. And each actor has to have the
presence of mind to realize
when to say his/her lines and has to be audible.”
Any other projects in the pipeline? “Yes”
She replies, “I am doing a film “It's A Man's World” with Saurab Sengupta. I am
playing the role of Arunandhati Sarkar who is a strong leader in a man’s world", says Mouli as she takes leave.
