Actors generally tend to challenge themselves by taking up characters completely opposite to their real selves. But sometimes they like to be in a comfort zone and enjoy every bit of a character very similar to their personality. Chhavi Pandey, who is currently seen in Dangal TV’s Prem Bandhan as Janaki is completely in love with her character because they are very similar in terms of personality.
When asked how much the character has impacted her, Chhavi says, “Janaki is a character that I have never played before and something I always wanted to do. She is very similar to me and very real to the point that it doesn’t look like I am pretending or even acting to be someone else. She is very compromising, loving, caring for her family, has a very strong self-respect and is a self-made person. And these are things I find in myself also.
I have gotten a chance to perform very naturally and convey the message with ease through this character. But there were times that I had to put in the work for some scenes and even that has impacted me so much that there is behavioral change in me off-screen as well. I am glad I grabbed this opportunity with both my hands and can’t wait to further go through the ups and downs of the story along with Janaki.”
Not only her, the audience also feels very connected to the character and relate to her. No wonder everyone roots to see Janaki and Harsh together.
Prem Bandhan is a story about an independent girl who has the responsibility of her family on her shoulders and how she meets a crossroad and ends up marrying a businessman with a mysterious past.
