Mumbai, July 20 (IANS) Actress Mouli Ganguly, who is excited about playing a negative character in TV show “Jamai Raja”, says “it is challenging to leave an impact on the audience’s mind by playing notorious characters”.
Mouli, who featured in shows like “Kahin Kissi Roz” and “Suryaputra Karn”, will be seen in a glamourous avatar in the Zee TV show.
She will essay the role of Payal, a shrewd, cunning and dominating woman. The show will see an interesting twist with her entry as her presence will add a lot of spice to the dynamics between lead characters Siddharth (played by Ravi Dubey), Roshni (played by Nia Sharma) and Neel (played by Indraneil Sengupta).
“It requires a lot of homework to play a character with grey shades convincingly. It is far more challenging to leave an impact on the audience’s mind playing notorious characters as it truly tests the potential of the artiste,” Mouli said in a statement.
“As an actor, I don’t want to limit myself with monotonous characters as I love to challenge myself in terms of characters and experimenting with looks,” she added.
Payal is a woman whose love for all the materialistic things in life and her self-obsession consumes her. She is very insecure as a person for which she overcompensates by power dressing and is obsessed with her appearance. To play this complex character, Mouli will be seen upping her style quotient.
She said: “I wanted to do something truly different in the fiction space as an actor and when I was approached for the role of Payal, I agreed to it instantly as I loved my multi-layered character.
“Payal is ultra-glamourous, wicked to the core and conscious about her looks and beauty to an extreme level. The role gives me an opportunity to display a gamut of emotions as she will be up to some scheme or plot every now and then and keep everyone on their toes.”
