Tell us something about your character Gini in the serial Channa Mereya?
Gini is a sikni who owns a Dhaba in Amritsar and I don’t have a father but he was the best chef in the city and whatever she cooks it’s her dad’s speciality and he has trained her for everything and the main reason why people come there to eat food is that they love Gini’s food. But at the same time, she has an emotional connection to the Dhaba as she has got it from her father.
On the other hand, she has a lot of responsibilities for her siblings and mother, and she needs to do something for their livelihood. She is also very close to her family and she believes that if her family exits then she has a life and whatever she is today it’s because of her family.
How did you bag the role? Did you do any auditions or did you get a call from the casting director?
My manager got the call for the role as the casting director thought I was a perfect fit for the role. So then I gave an audition and a look test, and they gave me the script in Punjabi which was a struggle for me it was the right moment and so magical that in two days I was on board and signed the contract. In the end, everything went smoothly the audition and the signing of the contract.
Any similarities between Gini and Niyati?
Like Gini, I am also very close to my family and I can’t stay home alone when my parents aren’t around I feel all alone and the moment they come I am very happy and a chirpy girl. Like Gini, I am also very positive and optimistic about things. I know if things do not work today there will also be a tomorrow.
Well, the audience are liking Niyati as Gini and has given the serial a thumbs up.
