Shalini Arora, who is currently seen in Rajshri Productions’s ‘Ek Shringaar-Swabhimaan‘ as the maternal aunt of the lead girls, played by Ankita Sharma and Sangeeta Chauhan is quite elated these days. The vivacious actress has bagged another show ‘Woh Apna Sa‘, which is produced by Alchemy films. She will be playing Prachi, who is chachi of Ssudeep Sahir.
When contacted she said,
“I am playing a very positive and loving lady, who is affectionate towards Sudeep and is like a mother to him (As Sudeep don’t have a mother in the show). In fact, she loves him more than her own son.”
Prachi Shah is playing the role of Sharda in Swabhimaan and coincidentally, Shalini’s name in the ‘Woh Apna Sa‘ is also Sharda, which sometimes creates problem while shooting. “On the sets, artists are usually called by their onscreen name. As I am shooting back-to-back for both the shows, so when, after shooting for ‘Swabhimaan‘ I go to Woh Apna Sa’s set and somebody says, ‘Sharda ma’am ka shot ready hai’. I get confused, because whether they are calling me or Prachi(laughs),” says Shalini.
For those uninitiated, the actress has earlier done the shows like Pavitra Rishta, Bhagyalakshmi, Balika Vadhu and played the role of Lal Bahadur Shastri’s mother in one of the Bollywood film ‘Jai Jawaan Jai Kisaan‘.
