Priyamvada Kant started her career with a really huge show for Balaji called Bayttaab Dil Ki Tamanna Hai. This was followed by Bairi Piya, Hamari Saas Leela, Thoda Hai Bas Thode Ki Zaroorat Hai, Veera and Swimteam.
On being asked about playing lead in Tenali Rama she says,
“Tenali Rama is a mythological comedy, the first of its kind. The period drama is hard, as it is, and we all know comedy is the hardest genre. Both rolled into one, is extremely challenging. Getting the diction, the body language right, carrying the costume and then being able to make people laugh cry and get emotional is super hard. I’m glad we have all been able to crack it and the show is a success. My character Sharda is an absolute delight. She is fun, innocent, full of spunk and life, she is intelligent loves her family. I love playing this character as it gives me a lot of happiness in my personal life as well. “
Priyamvada Kant is happy that she has got a chance to make the switch to comedy as the lead girl. Her latest show is a lighthearted period drama. She says,
“I have done so many negative roles, and those shows really made me a popular household name. People get attached to your characters in such shows, as they can relate to the story.”
But these negative characters got to her at one point.
“Whenever I would go somewhere, people recognised me, taunted me and even abused me!”
shares the actor.
“I needed to take a backseat, and hence taking up shows of other genres was a conscious decision.”
She might have gotten tired of playing the antagonist, but what kind of characters does she enjoy the most? Priyamvada says,
“It isn’t difficult playing positive, but negative roles are very hard, as it’s mentally very taxing. I am enjoying doing comedy now, which, though a bit hard, is immensely exciting. I am also looking forward to try out stand-up comedy now!”
She is getting lot of appreciation for her role. She adds,
“I am enjoying playing the lead in Tenali Rama and response is superb. From all over the world fans are messaging me that they love to watch the show “
