Mrinalini Tyagi who essays the role of Teju in Zee TV’s Pavitra Rishta (Balaji Telefilms) entered the popular show a year and a half back through an 18 years leap that was taken. The actress now feels she would not mind another conceptual jump in the show.
Talking about it, Mrinalini told Tellychakkar.com, “Many actors don’t want to be part of leaps, but I rather see the positive side of things. If you don’t take it, the story cannot go forward and has to end then and there. Also, a time jump brings freshness to the story and fresh talents get an opportunity to be seen just as Rithvik Dhanjani, Shakti Arora, Asha Negi, Shruti Kanwar and I too. Above all, the existing actors get a chance to play more mature characters.”
Pavitra Rishta has already taken three leaps till now and we wondered whether Mrinalini meant to say that another leap was in store. “Well, only the creatives and Ankita Lokhande (lead Archana) will have knowledge about it. We guys have no clue,” clarified the girl.
She went on to state, “I have to admit here that I am ready for a big leap. If it happens, it can help me get out of the current tomboyish college girl zone. However, I am not sure if the other characters would want the same though.”
On her thoughts about aging on screen, Mrinalini averred, “If Ankita who is only 25 years old can play a mother of five kids, why not me? Actually she is younger to me.”
When asked if she ever gets perturbed about the fact that she plays a character much younger to Ankita when it is vice versa in real life, the charming actress said, “Whenever we shoot, Ankita dresses according to her character and I do as per mine. Full marks to Ankita as she carries herself well and comes across as a 40-45 years old lady on screen.”
Mrinalini, we wish you all the very best…
