The talented girl plays the role of Sona, who is Bauji to the little girl Phulwa (Jannat Zubair Rahmani) In fact, Sona is the only character who is full of colors, when compared to the other characters who have a simple and rustic feel.
Talking about her role, Manasvi states, "I am not a typical vamp in the show who is set to create havoc. You can say that I am the 'Meethi Choori', a very self-centric girl who is very conscious of her looks. Sona is the most happening person in the entire village, and likes to sport all the expensive things that she possesses".
Manasvi took up this role as a challenge. "The first reason as to why I accepted the role of Sona is because I get to portray a negative role. The other reason is obviously the production house, Swastik Pictures. They are so very good in giving individuality to their characters. Even if their show has two vamps, they will etch their characters so well that the two characters will be very different. It is fun to work with them", she says.
The actressi had a whale of a time shooting at Bhateshwar near the River Yamuna. "The place was amazing; it was so chill out there that we had a tough time shooting wearing the sarees. You would not believe, the entire place would get pitch dark by 5 or 5.30 in the evening and it was a sight to watch".
The role of Sona's husband in the show will be essayed by Aniruddh Dave. He too has a flashy character and will have negative shades.
Phulwa launches on January 10th at the 9 PM slot on COLORS..
