Experimenting with their looks for a role is not just
limited to Bollywood stars these days, as our Telly Town dedicated actors are all willing to
After garnering a lot of appreciation for her popular character Sugana in Colors
super-hit show Balika Vadhu
, actress Veebha Anand became a household name couple of years ago.
Capturing the golden opportunities on her way, the very talented actress went ahead with a lead role in the show Sanskaar Laxmi
on Zee TV
. After the show ended, Veebha also tried her hand in theater and her play Rishton Ka Live Telecast became quite famous.
To break away from the image of a typical desi girl, Veebha was recently seen portraying the character of a sex-worker in Vikas Gupta's new show Yeh Hai Aashiqui
, which is based on unusual love stories prevailing in our society.
Talking about her work till now, Veebha believes that a variety of roles add flavors to her life and therefore, she prefers to keep experimenting with her characters in different shows! She says, "I'm an actor and I love to take up challenges in my life. In fact, I feel lucky to be able to live the life of different personalities and I enjoy it to the fullest. I hate being typecast and that is the precise reason I was on a self-imposed break until I got some interesting offers."
And now Veebha has bagged a meaty role in Siddharth Kumar Tewary's upcoming show Mahabharat
on Star Plus
. She will soon be making an appearance in a never before seen mythological avatar of Subhadra, who is Arjun's wife.
Regarding the same, a little birdie chirped, "Actress Veebha (Vibha) Anand
is on a strict liquid diet these days, in order to shed out some weight for her new role in Mahabharat
When asked Veebha, she too confirmed the same, saying, "Yes, I'll be playing Subhadra's character and as per the requirement of the role, I'm on a liquid diet these days. The costumes designed for the mythological role are bit revealing, so I'm trying to get into the required shape. Even though its a cameo but as an actor I have to do full justice to it."
Talking about the homework she is doing to prepare for Subhadra's role, Veebha says, "Other than getting into shape, I'm also working on my language and diction, as the scripts are in pure Hindi language and its bit difficult to remember. For the audition itself, I had given 50 takes, so just imagine." (Laughs)
On being asked what kind of other roles are on her wishlist, the actress went on to say that she is open to all kind of good work.
The actress will commence the shoot for the show Mahabharat
from the 10th of this month.
