Acting was never Tejaswi’s dream


Tejaswi Prakash Wayangankar, who last played the role of Ragini in “Swaragini”, says becoming an actor was never a dream for her. “I used to act during my childhood… It’s just that now I am getting paid for it. It was never my dream to do acting. It was something that just happened and not something I planned,” Tejaswi said during the promotion of her new show “Pehredar Piya Ki”.

With “Swaragini”, she became a popular face for TV viewers. Tejaswi will now be seen portraying the role of an 18-year-old Princess Diya alongside child actor Afaan Khan, who plays Prince Ratan Singh. The show has already grabbed attention with its promos ahead of its telecast later on July, given how it shows the younger one applying vermillion on the actress’ head.

Explaining the concept, Tejaswi said: “An unusual concept is showcased through the show. It’s journey of how people mend in a relationship which is not common. The show has new things to see that nobody has seen between a husband and a wife,” Tejaswi said.

Tejaswi said child marriage is not the basis of the show. “It’s not at all based on child marriage. It is about a husband and his guard, not husband and his wife. As there is something that he needs a guard,” said Tejaswi.
