Actress Alka Kaushal, who is currently playing the role of disciplined and strict Parvati Gadodia in Colors’ latest show “Swarigini”, says she finds it hard to manage all the heavy jewellery that her character wears on screen for long durations.
Parvati is seen wearing maang tika, heavy earrings, bangles and neckpieces in the show, and the actress says that she hardly wears such accessories in real life.
“It’s difficult to wear them for 13 to 14 hours a day while shooting. I don’t even get so decked up for weddings,” she told when asked that how does it feel to be decked up all the time in such shows.
Her character in the series, that talks about cultural conflicts between a Marwari and Bengali family, is a strong, rooted woman and has a clear differentiation of right and wrong with her own set of guidelines.
The Gadodia family is traditional and believes in customs and rituals. They are pure vegetarians and cannot stand the stench or sight of meat. Parvati hates the Bengalis next door. She is bitter and does not leave any stone unturned to look down upon them.
When asked that what made her give nod to this show, she told: “I have never done such a role before. Fortunately or unfortunately, I was only getting negative roles so far, so I think this is one opportunity where I am given opportunity of not being negative.”
“Swaragini” also features Helly Shah and Tejaswi Prakash Wayangankar, who play Swara Bose and Ragini Gadodia respectively along with Shobha Bose played by Tanima Sen, Sharmishtha Bose played by Parinita Borthakur and Shekhar Gadodia played by Sachin Tyagi.
