After playing negative in Zaara, Malini Kapoor
is all set to make you laugh with her portrayal of soap queen Ekta Kapoor
in SAB TV's Gunwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge
. "I play a TV serial producer called Kekta Kakoor who gets kidnapped by Himani Shivpuri
, the mother of goon Tiger. These sweet gangsters are angry at Kekta as she shows only serials where families are strife torn. They want me to show real love. However, Kekta instead of being scared tries to convince Tiger and even the servant of the house to leave the underworld and join her. She promises to make them big stars", avers Malini.
Malini feels that Ekta should take this lightly. "Imitation is the best form of flattery. The show has all the mannerisms of the soap queen (anger), but yes they have over hyped it to meet a sitcom's requirement", she adds. Talking about her look she says, "I have worn what normally Ekta wears i.e. a skirt and top and a spaghetti on that".
Besides this three episode cameo, Malini is also doing a lead role in Hari Mirch Lal Mirch. "I play Rinku in this DD weekly sitcom, which also star's Tushar Dalvi and Sucheta Pawse. It's a story about a man who has two wives. It's really fun to laugh after crying so much".
It is also speculated that Malini might be doing an important role in Zee TV's upcoming historical 'Jhansi Ki Rani'. However she refuses to talk about it.
