Playing a young widow might be an uncomfortable experience for many actors, but Sheetal has definitely taken things in her stride as she says, “I think I have taken the experience as a challenge and as an actor I have to do my best in any role. Also with the love and support I am getting from my viewers, I feel it is just a transition for my character.”
Talking about the society that looks down upon young widows, the actress shares, “It is a difficult time for them as people believe them to be ill-lucked. In India there are places where widows are even today kept in a desolate place, after they break-up all ties with family and normal life. They shave off their head and are considered a misfortune for the entire society.”
Balika Vadhu too saw a similar track previously but now the characters seem to have progressed in their thoughts.
