While watching some of our most loved television shows, we have often noticed our favorite actors effortlessly breathing lives into the characters they play on-screen. However, there are several preparations that go behind making that character look as convincing to the viewer’s eye and one of them is donning a new appearance for a role, especially if it is of another gender. As easy and common it might sound, the task of pulling across a new appearance is another ball game altogether, and experiencing this was none other than television actor Pratibha Ranta. For a recent episode of Zee TV’s popular fiction show, Qurbaan Hua Chahat (played by Pratibha Ranta) took the appearance of a ‘taxi driver’ in order to mislead her stepmother, Ghazala, and save her dear father.
Shedding her elegant saree clad appearance, Pratibha couldn’t have looked more adorable in this new avatar where she donned an ordinary shirt and pant along with a mustache and beard on her face. Elaborating on her new look, the talented actress Pratibha Ranta said, “I had the most astounding experience while shooting for the sequence where I had to get into a male taxi driver’s look. Donning the appearance was tough for me because my entire look had to be transformed and I had to wear a fake mustache and beard, which turned out to be the most irksome thing for me. But, at the same time, it was quite fun because after a really long time I felt free from the earrings, bangles, necklaces, hairdo, heels and the saree. I also had to work on my dialogue delivery with correct tonality which was a daunting task for me but in the end, it was a complete learning experience for me as I had to mold myself into the essence of a new character. I am very excited to see how this turns out.”
