Mumbai, April 8 : Actor Sanjay Gagnani will dress up as a woman in a sequence of the hit TV show “Kundali Bhagya”.
“It took me almost two hours to get ready and achieve this new look of a girl.As a male actor, I’ve always wondered why female actors take so long to get ready, but when I was required to get into a female avatar, I realised the reason,” says Sanjay, who became popular playing Prithvi Malhotra in the show.
He adds: “I have a newfound respect for all actresses for being so hardworking, dedicated, and strong.Getting the nuances of a lady right was difficult but I loved the challenge.”
He says the role is a part of his tryst with achieving excellence.“As an actor, I’ve always craved to excel in my craft,” he says, adding: “I believe, as an actor, we have the power to bring in happiness in the lives of people by entertaining them.”
Sanjay says that the show has always helped him experiment as an actor.“Kundali Bhagya is a show that has turned the tables for me.It has actually changed my ‘bhagya’ (fortune) and given me a scope to incorporate different looks and characters, whenever the role has required me to adopt a disguise in order to perform vicious activities.In the upcoming track of ‘Kundali Bhagya’, I take up a girl’s avatar to safeguard my evil plan from being exposed,” he says.
There is a murder that takes place in the show and Prithvi has met the victim just the day before.In order to delete the CCTV footage of them meeting, Prithvi dresses as a woman.“Kundali Bhagya” airs on Zee TV
