Drashti Dhami is all set to portray the simple girl Madhubala who climbs the ladder of success as a film star in Nautanki Films’ upcoming show Madhubala… Ek Ishq Ek Junoon (Colors). After portraying the character Geet in Star One’s Geet Hui Sabse Parayi, Drashti is looking forward to her next role with optimism.

“You don’t get shows on the film fraternity on television. This is a concept which is never done before on TV, and that is the reason I took it. I did not want to do the typical saas bahu roles, and a show focusing on the harsh reality of the film fraternity is a runaway change from the usual stuff,” shares Drashti with Tellychakkar.com.

Ask her about her chemistry with co-actor, Vivian Dsena and she says, “I really do not know why everyone speaks about the chemistry exhibited by the lead actors always. All should be concerned about the character I play, and not the chemistry I have with the lead actor. As for me, I would only want to speak about my character. The other things will be taken care of by the director and cameraman. We have not begun to shoot yet, so I cannot talk much about my role.”

On doing smooch sequences with her co-actors on television, Drashti avers, “Frankly speaking, I have my limitations when it comes to choosing the attires I wear and the scenes I do. I will not be comfortable doing a very close (intimate) sequence on screen. But all will depend on the demand of the scene and my frame of mind then. I would want to take one day at a time, and not think about the future.”

On her preparations to play the versatile actor Madhubala, Drashti states, “This is not a story on Madhubala. It is a story which is influenced by the film fraternity and not anyone in particular.”

On her expectations when it comes to her co-star Vivian Dsena she shares, “I want to have a good friendship with him, to begin with. I know him personally, so all should be fine.”

Talking about life after Geet, Drashti tells, “I was chilling out with friends. Most of my friends got married, so that kept me busy. I had been to Goa and Dubai, where I shopped a lot. I cooked a lot and slept to my heart’s content.”

Lastly, acknowledging the huge support she has got from her fans, she says, “I was really taken aback when I saw the huge response for my new show. The eagerness with which my fans are waiting for my comeback makes me feel special. I thank them for all the support; all I want to say is that I am back, and I would give my 100% to my work.”
