Anjana Sukhani will soon be seen in a pivotal role in Saas Bahu Achaar Pvt Ltd. The web series will premiere on July 8 on an OTT platform. The Free Press Journal caught up with the actress for an exclusive chat.
Opening up about her overall experience of working on Saas Bahu Achaar Pvt Ltd, Anjana shares, “My experience has been the most amazing, thrilling and enriching magical journey. And I am saying these words with a lot of love in my heart because when you do see this series, you will know exactly what I mean. When I say it’s been a magical journey for me, and not just professionally because I am very, very honoured to be part of this series but also internally, just like a spark, something just like lit up. I think that is something that I’m going to live with it forever.”
When asked about her role in the show, she reveals, “My character Manisha is married to Annup’s (Sonii) character after he divorces Amruta’s (Subhash) character. And it’s, of course, it’s someone’s journey. I feel Manisha is such an integral part of that story. The role is very multi-layered, and it’s one that I feel I have not really played in a very long time.”
Anjana is finally making her OTT debut. When asked what took her so long to do so, she explains, “I think I was just waiting for the right role. I just didn’t want to do something that just comes and goes, and people don’t even know. It couldn’t have been bigger and better for me with a story like this and a character like that.”
She is all praise for her co-star Annup. “He’s so easy to work with, honestly. He is so experienced and so nuanced. And so effortless. I mean, I think he just made it so easy for me to do scenes with him because he was so effortless and so giving. It felt very organic to let it just flow with it rather than trying to make an extra effort,” she gushes.
The actress is glad the way things have shaped out for her in the entertainment industry. “I’m in a very happy space. When your start is fantastic, there is no way to not have confidence in what is going to happen ahead. I mean, I have another show, which is also ready, which should be out maybe like maybe September sometime. I don’t know if the data is released yet, but it’s really the show. So anytime they will also decide. But the point is that that is completely diverse,” she concludes.
