In an exclusive conversation with TellyChakkar, Mouli spoke about the challenges and preparations for a mythological show, the future of the show, and fans' reactions and reception to her.

This is a mythological show, but it has a unique type of storytelling. How do you prep for the role?

I am not a pro or an experienced actor in terms of mythological shows. Every scene is a challenge for me. The language and gestures of mythological shows or historical shows are different compared to a show with a social message or general fiction show. Plus working with a 5-year-old is also something you are not always prepped for. You as an actor have to be understanding, and patient. Oftentimes, you will have to mold yourself according to his comfort, but like I said, I love the challenges because they are always a learning experience and help you to learn and grow.

What are your thoughts on the current track of the show and how you think it will pan out?

I think the show because it is based on mythology and on lord Shiv, appeals to a lot of fans and they are liking the storyline. We will put in more interesting sides of ShivJ ji's tales, but in terms of future storylines, I never think how anything it's gonna pan out. I feel it takes you away from enjoying the present. I simply choose to enjoy the process in the meantime. 

How has been fans' reception to your character and are there any memorable experiences that you can recall?

I think a majority of my fan base is mothers and grandmothers and I think the characters appeal to that demographic and they love my bond with the little Aan.
As for a memorable experience, recently, one elderly autorickshaw driver told me he cried for me in the scene when Bal Shiv was leaving me and he was going away. His admiration it was so genuine. I felt so humbled and grateful that the scene had an impact on him. Similarly, there are moments that stay with the viewers, and we feel like we are doing a good job.

Stay tuned for more news from the entertainment industry.
