How Chhavi Pandey brought her character Janki alive
Mumbai: Actress Chhavi Pandey came into the industry to become a singer. But destiny had something else planned for her. She entered the world of acting and is loved by the audience and there is no looking back since. Currently playing Janki in Dangal TV’s Prem Bandhan, Chhavi Pandey shares some of her secrets to perfectly portray a character.
It has been almost a decade since Chhavi has been acting. Here she shares some tips that she has learnt over the years and says, “I believe to play any role; you need to first understand the character even if it is just an audition. I think instead of just memorizing your dialogues line after line, you need to first learn what it means and make it beautiful in a unique way and then present it. The best character is portrayed after the actor relates to the characters and the scenes he or she is about to play. Today, the audience loves Janki because I created her. If they could see Chhavi on screen and not Janki, people would have never connected with the show and the character. So, I make sure to change my personality when I am in front of the camera. I believe you really need to dive deep to understand and portray the character you are offered so that the message you are trying to convey reaches the heart of the viewers.”
No wonder the audience tears up when Janki cries and smiles along with her in her happiness. Chhavi definitely has made a place for Janki in her viewer’s hearts. We can’t wait to see what happens next in Prem Bandhan.
Prem Bandhan is a story about an independent girl who has the responsibility of her family on her shoulders and how she meets a cross road and ends up marrying a businessman with a mysterious past.
