"I started doing ma roles at a very young age, and I enjoy doing
them. I never liked playing a negative mother, but I think it is very
interesting to play a mom with grey shades," says Krishnan, who is a fan
of Reema Lagoo's body of work as on screen mother.
Indira is being lauded for her positive role in Krishnaben Khakhrawala and she hopes to play "a good ma on the big screen". A household name ever since she started playing Krishnaben, Krishnan's character has become famous for its bubbliness, simplistic ways of handling day-to-day issues with street smartness.
"There is a sea change in the portrayal of mothers on screen nowadays. Gone are the days when a widowed mother used to sit in a corner wearing a white sari and just crying all the time. Mothers are strong and ambitious these days and know how to prove themselves even if they have no man in their life," said Indira, a mother to a three-year-old boy in real life.
Though only in her 30s, playing a 45-year-old mother on TV is not quite the challenge for Indira. "The biggest challenge in this role was not the character's emotions, strength and the fact that I had to play a mother. The challenge was that I am a south Indian, and I had to play a typical, middle-class Gujarati woman. Getting the Gujarati accent right was the biggest chunauti (challenge) for me in this show," she said.
