Actress Pavitra Punia, who plays the role of a witch in Ishq Ki Dastaan- Naagmani on Dangal TV, says that the show has been quite a game changer for her. The actress says that she loves being part of the show.
“The USP of the character is how beautifully I have played this role. How charming and enticing and intimidating, how cruel and sweet I am playing. The USP is that she can woo anybody and crush anybody. I love that drastic extreme and drastic mild transformation,” she says.
She adds, “It was my own decision to take up the show because I like fantasy shows. The concept of the role and show was very intriguing. The way I have played Timnasa, the evil queen in Balveer Returns, so I love fantasy.”
Pavitra has had quite the journey on screen. “I have done some reality shows like MTV Splitsvilla and Bigg Boss 14 and TV shows like Naagin, Balveer Returns, Aladdin- Naam Toh Suna Hoga, Kavach, Daayan etc. The recognition that I got was majorly from Splitsvilla and after that I got myself into this industry. One of the prominent roles in my life was Nidhi Chhabra in Yeh Hai Mohabbatein which people still remember. I am yet to reach the landmark. I still can't say that I have reached that landmark because there is still a long way to go,” she says.
She adds, “It’s just that, do your best. There’s no competition because I can proudly say that the roles which I have done and the way I act, nobody can do this job better than I do. I haven’t learned anything when it comes to competition. I have just learned to stick to professional integrity if you want to survive.”
Talking about the bond she shared with everyone on the set, she says, “Everyone and everyone is very sweet. When you do television you are on set for 12-14 hours so everyone becomes a family. Both the production house and channel are really good. I had little apprehensions earlier before joining Dangal TV. But I removed those apprehensions because I thought If I like the show, I will do it. Working with them now is like a blessing because Shoonya Square producers, Ved Raj and Ritu are amazing people and have such amazing talent. They understand their actors and understand their requirements. The love that I have got from the channel and production house is so overwhelming. That is all we live for. When you see them being proud of you, then that is what makes you sleep peacefully.”
