After playing a happy-go-lucky girl in the show, Miley Jab Hum Tum, TV actor Rati Pandey is playing a serious girl in a new series titled Hitler Didi — a role that’s completely opposite to her real self.
"This role is quite difficult as I have to be serious all the time. I am a very bubbly girl in real life, I keep on smiling all the time. However, I don’t want to be monotonous with this character, as for someone who plays a serious role, there are hardly any shades," says Rati about her role in the show that will be aired on Zee TV from October 31. "I have tried to bring in some variations and hope my hard work pays off," she adds.
In this show, Rati is playing Indrani, who takes up the responsibility of looking after her family singlehandedly. The show has Delhi as its backdrop and it is also being shot completely in Delhi.
The actor has been in the industry for six years and done shows like Raat Hone Ko Hai and Har Ghar Kuch Kehta Hai. However, she rose to limelight with Miley Jab Hum Tum.
A commerce graduate, acting was never on the mind of this 29-year-old, who wanted to become a fashion designer and have her own firm. But her stint on the small screen changed her plans. "Initially, it was difficult as no one in our family has ever been in this profession, but now I am enjoying it," says Rati.
After being a part of Har Ghar Kuch Kehta Hai, the actor has decided not to be a part of saas-bahu sagas anymore. "Preferably I will not go for a saas-bahu saga because I have already done one," she said.
With the cut-throat competition in showbiz, Rati knows she can’t take it easy. "If I have to achieve my goal I would be very headstrong, otherwise I am a very emotional person in real life," she says.
