How has it been working with the team of Parivaar?
Deepti Devi or better known as Radha of Parivaar is the dutiful daughter, the indulging sister and the dutiful nurse.... Here is the hardworking actress in a one to one conversation with our reporter Melanie as she talks about her experiences working on the sets of Parivaar…
It has been really great working with the entire team. We are like one big family that has a lot of fun together. We sit together; share our lunches, laugh and gossip. Although I am far away from home and miss my family a lot, the team of Parivaar is like my second family.
Do you relate to Radha, the character you play in Parivaar?
In a way, I do. I am a soft hearted person like Radha. But I am not as serious in life as she is. I do like to enjoy life and have fun, but I do have a sense of maturity and responsibility just like Radha.
Are you as family oriented as Radha?
Yes I am. When it comes to my family, I hold the same values and principles as my character. I respect my family because they have always been by my side in achieving all my dreams.
Radha was paired with Shourya first and then Addy; But both of them were bumped off from the serial. Is there any particular reason for this?
Not really. In my opinion, I had a great on-screen chemistry with both the actors. But they were not comfortable working with me. And they had commitments to other shows and were also offered better roles.
So when will Radha unite with her family? Will she be happy in the future track?
The future track of the serial is the channel’s call. Radha’s happiness is entirely left to the audience. As of now, the audience seems to enjoy the current track so we will proceed on the same track. We just have to wait and watch to know what happens in the future.
Yes, the on-screen chemistry between Radha and Addy was great. In fact I enjoyed working with Rahil a lot. But I guess you will have to ask him if he has plans to return back to the serial.In the serial, Radha is portrayed as a meek girl who is very submissive and is raped by Swapnil; do you think Radha is justified in doing this?
No absolutely not. Women in today’s society are definitely more assertive. In fact I was aghast when I read the script. I think society should get rid of such “gentlemen” and women need to stand up for themselves.
We have heard that Swapnil is not dead; so how will the Swapnil track end?
Well you will just have to wait and watch to find out.
Can you give us a gist of what is in store for the future?
Radha is now going to be introduced to a new family. From here on the story will be all about how she gets involved and adapts to this new family. It will mostly focus on the role she plays in making an impact on their lives.
Till now, which has been your favorite scene in the serial?
My favorite scene by far has been the scene where I eat Pani Puri with Diwakar who plays my brother Avinash and Ankita (plays Ankita). In this scene I miss my family a lot so I go out with both of them to eat Pani Puri. It was a very emotional scene and I enjoyed it a lot.
So do you have any future projects? What kind of roles would you like to play?
Right now I am concentrating only on Parivaar. I
have got a lot of offers but haven’t taken up any new projects because
I cannot leave Parivaar since it is like a family to me. In future I
would love to do comedy roles or be a part of a reality show.
