While actress Rashami Desai has been enthralling the audiences for a long time now with different roles, her character in Anil V Kumar’s Ratri ke Yatri 2 has been the toughest. The actress says that she was quite nervous initially and hopes the audience loves the show now.
“As an actor, I have always been extremely selective about the roles I play. I prefer to look at the challenges the role possesses and how much of the story it can tell. I even do my personal groundwork and research before signing up for a role and believe in putting in a personal touch to make it more relatable to the audiences,” she says, adding, “It was a lengthy process from getting the look and more importantly to get into the skin of the character. The role is one of the most difficult ones I have essayed so far in my career and I heartily look forward to audience feedback. Having said that, I want to thank Anil sir for choosing this subject and telling an important story.
Talking about working with Anil, she says, “Anil V. Kumar Sir is a very aware and intelligent person and I see myself as a director’s actor. The experience of working with him was blissful as he helped me a lot to get into the character I’m playing, given its severe challenges.”
She adds, “It was an absolute pleasure working on Ratri Ke Yatri 2. I have to admit I was nervous at the beginning as the subject deals with red-light workers. But the comfort level provided by the entire team ensured that I could effectively do justice to my part. However, ultimately, it’s up to our audiences to decide how well we did. I hope they like it as we all have given our best.”
The content of the show is bold and will capture interest, says Rashami. “I think everyone has their notion regarding red light areas and the people who live there. Some call it bad, some call it unnecessary but I will call it the harsh truth of life. It’s easier to judge them from the outside but ever since this experience I will only say that their lives are the harshest truth of life for which many of us are responsible. I also think that the least anyone can do is respect for their life is the toughest,” she says.
