Exclusive tete-a-tete with Drashti Dhami
Drashti Dhami has beautiful and mysterious eyes which hold thousand unsaid words and emotions. This super talented actress stabbed hearts as Geet in Star One’s Geet - Hui Sabse Parayi. Her chemistry with Gurmeet Choudhary became a rage across the globe.
Now, she is coming back to enchant viewers as Madhubala in Colors’ upcoming show, Madhubala- Ek Ishq Ek Junoon which will hit the airwaves from 28 May 2012. She will pair opposite Vivian Dsena. The show is being produced by Nautanki Films.
Madhubala is a girl who is born and brought up in the city of dreams (Mumbai) amidst a filmy ambience. She is a simple girl who will gain great heights of popularity and stardom. “Madhubala is not a very ambitious girl and she does not crave for fame. She just wants to stay with her loved ones,” says Drashti to
She continues, “I will be seen carrying a very simple look as per the demands of the character. I will wear very less make-up. I will be seen wearing only kajal.”
So how different is Madhubala from Geet? “Very much. Madhubala is mature and calm whereas Geet was very bubbly. Moreover, as Geet I used to say oye and thoudi, so I have to get rid of the habit. I am also working on my body language.”
She is beautiful, so no doubt she might be showered with compliments. Any special incident she wants to share with us? “While I was doing Geet, the show’s cameraman said that when he looks through the lens and shut his left eye, he falls in love with the image that he sees in the viewfinder. It was indeed a great compliment.”
So is she like Madhubala in real life? “Madhubala doesn’t want to be famous but I always wanted to become an actress. No one from my family belongs to the entertainment industry. Hence, when I decided to enter the field of acting, everyone started calling me to check if I was sure about my decision. My first break was a music video where I danced on the song Saiyan Dil Mein Aana Re. Since then my family has been very supportive.”
And Drashti is not the only star in the house. Her sister-in-law, Suhasi Dhami seen in Yahaan Mein Ghar Ghar Kheli (Zee TV), is also a big name now in the world of television. “Suhasi entered a lot later. By then everyone had already gotten used to the idea of stardom. It was tough for me actually.”
Finally, what about her chemistry with Vivian? “We haven’t shot together much yet, however Vivian is a nice guy and I am sure we will hit it off well,” she ends with a beaming smile.
