Actor Antara Banerjee, who is part of Dipti Kalwani, Sushant Kumar and Teena Swayyam‘s Badho Bahu, says that she loves being part of the show. The actor says that she has been with the show from the start and has had a fabulous journey till now. “I am there in Badho Bahu since day 1. I have been shooting since the last one and half years for the show. It is a great feeling to be part of it,” she says.
Talking about the character, Antara says, “My character in Badho Bahu is Pinky. She is very beautiful but is extremely self-centred. She is the most beautiful girl in Haryana, so she is always obsessed with her self. She only thinks about herself,” she says, adding, “I can’t relate myself to my character Pinky because I am totally the opposite. I love helping others, I am honest and very friendly,” she says.
Recently, her character has been involved in the kidnapping sequence in the show. “My character’s involvement in the kidnapping is that I am the main person, who kidnaps Badho because Pinky wants that Titli should be married soon because she hates working. If she gets married soon then Pinky will able to live her own life. It’s a fun sequence. Kamla Maji is also involved in the kidnapping with me. The final action is done by me in this kidnapping sequence,” she says.
Antara is thrilled with people’s response to her character. “People are mad for Pinky in few states like Delhi, Haryana, Indore, Chandigarh, especially the north part of India. Many of them come and click pictures with me. It’s a big achievement that our fans and audiences are loving us as we work hard for it,” she says.
The show has stressed on the fact that fat can be beautiful too from the beginning. Talking about this, she says, “Being fat is nowhere a problem nowadays, nor it was before. It just depends on one’s mindset. Some people should change their way of thinking. Let girls fly high, support them!”
Antara shares a great equation with all her actors. “I bond with everyone. We work together, we have food together. If I have to take only one person’s name then I would take Rytasha’s name because we truly are best friend on-screen and off-screen,” she says.
