MUMBAI: Gouri Tonk is one of the popular actors who has reigned in the TV industry with her memorable characters and powerful acting.
She successfully made a comeback after a long period. Her dedication towards her work and the attitude of never quitting keeps her on board always. Her spouse Yash Tonnk is a Television actor as well. They met on the set of ‘Kahin kissi Roz’ . It's there they fell for each other and got married. Now they have two daughters together.
She has done many shows namely ‘Ek Boond Ishq’ which was telecast on Life Ok, ‘Shakti’ on Colors Tv not only TV shows but have showed her talents in regional Marathi films ‘Asach Pahije Nav Nav’ and ‘Chavva’. Currently she has shot for a short film directed and produced by actor and good friend Sai Deodhar.
We asked her more about the project. Gouri said, “This film is a dark comedy and is different. I am doing something like this for the first time in my career. Sai and I are friends from a long time but working as a director and actor with her, I must say that I loved her style! “
Since we last saw Gouri on Shakti where she quit the show because she wanted to spend time with her family and take precaution owing to the covid-19 pandemic, we asked her about her making a comeback on television. She said, “I am completely ready for television and I recently shot an episode of Crime Alert too. I took care and made sure to sanitize everything. The one thing I am categoric about is that I do not want to do side roles or just about anything. I want something which has substance and depth. “
When asked about her husband, Yash Tonk’s stint in Kyu Utthe Dil Chhod Ayee on Sony TV, Gouri shared, “I am the biggest fan of Yash! When I watch him, I am smitten. I know that Yash is not a romantic person in real life but when I watch him on television, he is a different personality who manages to convince me too as if he is actually the personality I am watching.”
As a parting note, Gouri spoke about the importance of health and how it is important to always maintain physical and mental health.
Gouri said, “Generally women feel that it is wrong to think about oneself but they forget that loving and taking care of your own self is not being selfish. It is self love. Another thing is that people keep things to their self and not share. I am of the belief that whatever it is, it is important to express it out and if you don’t have anyone you should record it. We are human beings and we need to conversate and bring out the things which trouble us.”
