Deepali Saini enjoyed her stint in the popular TV show Saath Nibhaana Saathiya 2 (SNS2) produced by Rashmi Sharma Telefilms. She played the role of Shakuntala, ‘Shakuni Masi’ in the family drama that might go off air soon. Deepali had been a part of a show for just a few months.
“The star cast was very supportive, especially Suhani didi ( Roma Bali), who was playing my elder sister. She was playing a negative character in the show and I entered as her younger sister. We became very good friends in a very short time. This is my first such show in which in such a short time the whole family started looking like a family. Also, my director was too good. He was very supportive and in case I used to go out of track, he always used to explain things to me. From spot dada to the production team, everybody was kind to me. Only one problem that I used to face was that our set was too far and there were a lot of network issues (laughs),” she says.
A look at Deepali’s careergraph shows that she has never worked with Star, and with SNS2 her wish to be associated with the brand got fulfilled.
“This was a good show on a good channel. This will have a good effect on my upcoming shows. Saathiya2 was my first show with Rashmi Sharma. Now, she has approached me for her other upcoming shows. So, let’s see. Yes, of course, career wise this was an amazing experience because I played a good character. Also, I liked my attire, costume and felt confident wearing the look,” she adds.
About the feedback she has got for her performance on the show, the actor shares being overwhelmed with all the appreciation that came her way.
“Apart from mouthing dialogues, I also tried expressing myself through expressions. You don’t need to say what you have to say, you speak with your eyes. My director and co actors always told me that I look good on screen, and my features are beautiful. Overall, the feedback was really good. I feel the show is going off air too early. I had only worked for 3-4 months with the team. So I will not say that these people have established my character too much because I had entered the story when we faced timing issues and it was decided that the show will be taken off. Also, when they changed the timing of the show from 9 pm, TRP got affected,” she shares.
“I just love playing comic and negative characters, because you get to do so much with them. There are so many variations in these genres and portrayals that help you evolve as an actor. I also enjoy action. Given a choice, I would actually want to do a Wonder Woman sort of a film. I like the superhero concept,” she adds.
