Who can forget Chitrashi Rawat — the actor who played the hot-headed Haryanvi hockey player Komal Chautala in the blockbuster Chak De! India? And now the 23-year-old, is set to feature as the central character in the popular TV show FIR, post the show taking a 20-year leap into the future. After
FIR serial characters Billu (Sandeep Anand), Jwalamukhi Chautala (Chitrashi Rawat) and Gopi Bhalla (Gopinath Gandola).
the leap Chitrashi will play Jwalamukhi, daughter of Chandramukhi Chautala (played by Kavita Kaushik). “I feel privilege to play this role. She is a shy girl, who turns into a super woman whenever she sees atrocities committed against women. It was challenging to play this role as I am not fluent in Haryanvi,” she says.
Ask her if she feel any pressure that comes with the replacement and she says, “I don’t feel any pressure. I know Kavita did an excellent job. The pressure that I have is to deliver my best. I’m going play this character my way.” So does she fear being typecast as a Haryanvi girl? “I’ve realised that whatever I do, everyone will still remember me as Komal from Chak De! and I’m fine with it,” she says. On her personal life she says, “I am single and very happy, I want to completely focus on my work and career now. There is a lot that I want to achieve.”
