&TV’s latest show Dilli Wali Thakur Gurls is garnering a lot of appreciation from the masses. And actress Supriya Pilgaonkar is all set to enthral us as Mamta Thakur in the show.
When we asked the lady about her character, Supriya quickly replied “I am playing Mamta Thakur, a doting mother of five daughters. Mamta’s character is different from what I have been playing in the past five years. She reacts to things very differently. The situations which come her way, she tackles those in a unique way. As an actor, I have chosen this role because it is different from the character that I have played before. She is real and not an idealistic one.”
We asked her if she could relate to her onscreen character who’s a follower of astrology and she said, “Mamta believes in horoscopes and she also finds out solutions for her daughters’ problems through it. Frankly speaking, to a certain extent, I personally do believe in astrology. I also consider that horoscope affects us.”
So do you relate your reel life character with your real life? Supriya shared, “Yes, I do because there are lot of similarities. I realised that every time I play a character, I start believing that I am that character. The way I would react in real life is the same things my onscreen character does. Previously it was not like that because I was bound by some past story but on this show, I don’t have any past story. I am just being myself and enjoying it.
You are playing the mother to five daughters, so do you think the mother-son bond is missing?
“In the show, all my daughters are very sweet, lovely and they have their own characteristic. I am happy that I have five daughters because they are more caring. I don’t miss having a son because my son-in-laws are there to complete that space. For me a daughter and a son are equal.”
Lastly, tell us what are your expectations from this show?
“I am expecting the same kind of love that I received by playing Radha (Radhaa Ki Betiyaan Kuch Kar Dikhayengi), Sheleja (Sasural Genda Phool) and Amrit (Ek Nanad Ki Khushiyon Ki Chaabi…Meri Bhabhi). I will give my heart and soul to the show because I love doing my work. I feel my work is appreciated as I genuinely like to play the character being offered to me,” said the actress
We wish the lovely lady all the best for her career.
