Vaishali Thakkar gets ready for Uttaran
Thakkar, who was last seen in Baa Bahu Aur Baby, is quite excited about
her totally new avatar in the recently launched Uttaran. Seen in a
completely plain and simple look, the actress plays the role of a
single mother who struggles to make ends meet and support her daughter.
"I did not think about my de-glam look as such. It is a very good
character and according me as an actor this is one of the best roles
that I have ever done. I have not done any role like this before. I am
very happy that I got this chance," explains Vaishali.
Although the show has been on air for just a few
days, it is already getting a very good response. "People will take
some time to adjust to the show. My show is similar to the kind we saw
earlier on TV… such realistic shows used to come earlier. And so the
audiences will take some time also for accepting these deglamourised
characters. But since show has been on air we have been getting
positive response," says Vaisahal.
Nowadays numerous serials on television revolve around child artists. Is she worried that this trend might run out soon?
is a story of us - me and my daughter. This is strong storyline which
they are showing through this girl's eyes. It was the demand of the
story and they have not twisted it only to focus on the child in the
show. There are going to be twists in the show, which I will not reveal
now, but it will surely change the perception," informs Thakkar.
about working with a child artist at such close quarters, Vaishali says
that it can be quite demanding. "You need to give them space. It
demands a lot of effort and it is challenging as well. But I am happy
that I am getting to learn so many things. They are quite spontaneous
and sharp; you really need to match up with them. In short you have to
be on your toes," laughs the actress.
"Sparsh is quite an
innocent girl. She is just 7 years old but is very intelligent. Some of
her shots are taken genuinely. It is fun off screen as well. She will
jump around everywhere…she has so much energy that at the end of the
day when we all are so tired but she will keep on talking about her
school. She plays games with us. She is like any other child," she
