Actor Puja Banerjee is no secret to the mythological genre where she, in fact, became a household name owing to her role of Goddess Parvati in Devon Ke Dev. Mahadev several years ago.
Now, the actor is all set to dvelve into the genre yet again with the ongoing mythological show, Jag Jaanani Maa Vaishno Devi — Kahani Mata Rani Ki. Only this time, she will play the role of the grown up Maa Vaishno Devi.
In an interview with Bombay Times, Banerjee said, "I feel it will be a challenge to play the role of Maa Vaishno Devi. My character will fight every battle to destroy evil,” she says.
Ask her if she prefers doing mythological shows and she says, “No, in the past few years I have done comedy and also the detective show, 'Dev'. I was also approached for 'Bigg Boss', but due to personal reasons, I could not do it.”
She also denied getting typecast in mythological roles, we she said, “I have played Goddess Parvati before so this is quite similar as both are Goddesses but in this show, till now a child was playing Vaishno Devi, so she has already established the character. Now I have to take the character forward from there so that will be a bigger challenge. It will take me some time to find a connect with viewers.”
We wish Banerjee all the best for the new role.
