Our poor Ratan Rajput aka Laali of Zee TV's Agle Janam Mohe Bitiya Hi Kijo is getting used to the poverty that the show has mercilessly bestowed on her.
Not only on the sets, but even at her friends' house parties, Ratan doesn't think twice before sitting on the floor. It so happens on the sets that during breaks when other actors plunge themselves on couches, she finds herself sitting on the floor.
Though others do give her a second look to ensure she is fine, she enjoys her carefree attitude. This doesn't end here; Ratan often does her own household chores and saves money by taking an auto instead of her own car/cab most of the times. She refuses to go to swanky restaurants and avoids eating heavily priced grubs.
When someone questions her over this, Ratan says this helps her to be in her character. "Yes sitting on the floor during breaks is out of the habit on the show and does help me stay connected with the character. But the other savings is out of the realization that there is immense poverty in the country which I myself experienced during my stay at Wahi while shooting the village sequences. There were people who offered me to sell their meals to make money. The reality was hard-hitting and I have decided I will not disrespect money by splurging it in every way possible. I will save up and try and live a modest life as much as possible. Yes I still spend a lot on beauty treatments as it's inevitable in my career but I have cut down on my other expenses."
Way to go, girl!!
