MUMBAI: Maddam Sir fame Pankhuri Awasthy has bagged the role of a female guide in the upcoming television show named Gud Se Meetha Ishq. She is excited to play this challenging role.
Talking about her character in the show, she said, “I play the role of Kaju, who is a tourist guide in Uttarakhand. Now in that place, the number of female tourist guides is few and she is trying to break the glass ceiling in the male-dominated industry. The way she is going to do that and the challenges she will face is fascinating.”
The shooting will be done in Uttarakhand hence she will be travelling there soon as the shooting would commence from 9th March.
When asked about choosing a new role, the actress revealed, “The role and the character should instantly hit me. There has to be something which I can explore. Be it Amala in Kya Qusoor Hai Amala Ka who fights for her rights after being a victim of brutal gang rape or Draupadi in Suryaputra Karn, who goes through her fair share of ups and downs. All these roles connect with the society we live in.”
She further added that her husband-actor Gautam Rode gives her a lot of practical and professional suggestions.
Pankhuri Awasthy has been part of shows like Razia Sultan, Suryaputra Karn, Kya Qusoor Hai Amala Ka, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, etc. She is presently seen in the show Maddam Sir.
