Actress Ratan Rajput, who rose to fame after portraying the character of Lali in Zee TV's Agle Janam Mohe Bitiya Hi Kijo, is all set to be seen in Siddharth Kumar Tiwary's upcoming show Mahabharat on Star Plus. Ratan will be seen playing the character of Amba in the show and her first shot has been directed by producer Siddharth Kumar Tiwary itself who was the producer of the earlier show Agle Janam as well.
When TellyBuzz contacted Ratan to know more about her first day of shoot, she told us, "I was called on a very short notice as earlier someone else was supposed to play this character but later I was finalized to play this role. I had no idea about the shoots and my character so I asked Siddharth to be around on the set so that I will get to learn things easily under his guidance. My first scene was to be shot with Puneet Issarji under the guidance of Siddharth with cameraman Anil Da. Siddharth explained everything very well to be and I must say that he is perfect with it. I was very much excited to work with Puneetji and the scene came out really well. I loved the way Siddharth directed the first scene."
Talking about her character and the costumes, she further added, "It's a very strong character which I am playing and our costumes and jewelry are so heavy that it seems like a punishment for us. My jewelry used to become very cold while we were shooting in Kashmir and it used to become very hot while we were shooting in Gujarat. I have realized now that earlier women used to be very fashion conscious but we look very simple in front of them. We look beautiful in our costume and jewelry but it's not easy to stay with all that for a long time."
