In times where actors seem to be the most apprehensive about returning to shoot owing to the constantly and immensely increasing coronavirus scare, one can barely imagine an actor juggling two shows, right?
However, actor Pooja Banerjee is always known to defy the odds in several aspects and that is what she will be doing this time around too. The actor, who is currently seen in Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 as Nivedita will now also be seen in Kumkum Bhagya, where she will be replacing Naina Singh who played the role of Rhea. Yes! That’s right. Opening up
on the same in an interview with Bombay Times, Banerjee said, “I was apprehensive initially, but fortunately, the sets of both the shows are located next to each other and I don’t have to travel at all. Even my make-up artist and room will continue to be the same. It will be mainly about changing costumes. So, I don’t have to take extra precautions.”
Talking about the character, she said, “I play Sriti (Jha) and Shabbir (Ahluwalia)’s daughter. I think I look younger than my age, so that won’t be a problem. Also, Sriti and Shabbir are relatively older than my age group, so playing the part won’t be a problem. I will be essaying negative roles in both the shows and they will give me a lot of scope to perform.”
Concluding on a note about taking precautions and maintaining safety, she said, “Luckily, we are all fit and fine. It is important to take precautions and also continue working at the same time. I do not have any domestic help at home and have also decided to drive myself to the sets. I am maintaining social distancing at home and sanitize on the sets, too.”
We wish the actor all the best and complete safety.
