Rajshri more confident after lead role in TV show
New Delhi: Rajshri Rani Pandey, who was mostly offered supporting roles in the past, is now seen as the lead character in 'Suhani Si Ek Ladki' and says she feels more confident.
Prior to the Star Plus show, she was seen in two episodes of 'Savdhaan India - India Fights Back', but she was positive that someday she would get a role of her choice.
"From beginning I thought I would like to do main role. I got offers like sister's role or side roles. I refused them. Some of them included shows of Colors channel and also Doordarshan, in which I was offered to play the hero's sister," the 25-year-old told us.
The newcomer, who hails from Uttar Pradesh's Fatehpur, has been promoted as "simple and average looking girl" for the new show. But she says looks never caused any obstacle in the way of her dream.
"Maybe I fit into a sister's role. But it doesn't depend on looks only. Audition is based on talent also," said the actress, who has a Bachelor of Tourism degree.
Talking about her role in 'Suhani Si Ek Ladki', Rajshri said: "When I got this role, I was really happy. I felt that I am on the right path. People used to say that you won't necessarily get the lead, and take up whatever you are getting."
"But I knew I would get a good lead role and yes, I became more confident after getting what I wanted."
She has no training in acting, but says giving auditions was a learning experience for her.
Rajshri, a movie buff, plays a "sweet and happy girl who loves family and believes in friendship" in 'Suhani Si Ek Ladki', but wants to try something different.
"I like Tigmanshu Dhulia and Anurag Kashyap's films. For instance, 'Paan Singh Tomar'. I like watching such movies and would like to do such movies. I watch masala films too, but I like movies which are a little different," she said.
Rajshri is also open to dance reality shows as she enjoys dancing, but as of now she wants to focus on her new show.
