Additi Gupta who was last seen as Pihu in Zee TV's Sanjog Se Bani Sangini is all set to be seen in a different role in Ravi Ojha's forthcoming show Badalte Rishton Ki Daastan. The actress will be seen essaying the character of a very simple girl Nandini who becomes a widow because destiny had different plans for her.
Tellybuzz spoke to Additi to know more about her character, the bond she shares with her co-stars and much more.
Talking about her character, Additi stated, "Nandini is a very simple girl, with a pure heart with no jealous intentions. She has an inquisitive mind which makes her find answers. She is very strong but not a career oriented girl and family is her priority. She has lost her husband and is trying to find happiness in the family. I am really happy and feel lucky that Zee has given me a chance to do something different once again."
Speaking about her look, she further added, "I will be wearing a white saree and no jewellery and less make up. It becomes easier for me and I am really happy wearing white sarees. If I won't try out something new, then it will become really boring for me. I have played a character of a 20 year old bubbly girl and now I want to experiment with something challenging and I feel lucky about bagging this serious drama."
The actors recently shot at some different locations like Rishikesh and Dhanaulti amongst others. When we asked her about the experience of this outdoor shoot, Additi replied, "It was fun shooting there but a little tiring too. I got to see a lot of nice places there. We were shooting in 8 degrees and it was snowing all around. I was given deep cut blouses to wear and I wasn't allowed to wear sweaters (laughs). I had to manage somehow."
So, was it easy for her to play this character, "It was difficult for me to get myself into the character, but our director Rakesh Kumar is brilliant and working very hard on the show. Additi and Nandini are very different. I don't actually know how a widow feels when she goes through that phase. I am just following his directions. It is fun working."
"Sanjeeda loves my outfit, however I feel that her costumes are extremely comfortable. So, we keep praising each others looks and outfits (laughs). I know her since a long time and it is good working with her," shares Additi about her relationship with Sanjeeda Shaikh.
