Talented actor Indira Krishnan, who was last seen on Krishnaben Khakhrawala (Neela Telefilms) on Sony Entertainment Television, is back featuring on another family drama Tum Aise Hi Rehna (Rashmi Sharma Telefilms) on the same channel.
In a recent conversation with us, Indira told us that Krishnaben’s role was closest to her heart. “Krishnaben’s role was of a strong woman and was very memorable. It was closest to my heart”.
Talking about her character in Tum Aise Hi Rehna, she said, “I am playing the role of Rukmani Maheshwari, Kinshuk’s mother, who is very traditional and is searching a daughter-in-law for her younger son”.
“Rukmani’s character is that of a strict and strong woman, who wants a traditional ‘bahu’, who will not be a working woman. She herself is the elder daughter-in-law of a rich business family. She can be very stubborn at times but is a positive person by nature”, added the actor.
When she was asked whether the audiences will witness any ‘saas-bahu’ conflict in the show or not, the actor replied, “My character will showcase many emotion. Circumstances change a character. Same will happen with my character. But yes, there will be certain drama in the serial”.
Talking about why she opted for such a role, she said, “Rashmi (Sharma) defines every character properly. She defines each character with equal importance. And I believe that in this show as well, the casting has been apt. I am of the opinion that Rashmi is well aware about audiences’ choices. Audiences like ‘masala’ dramas, so I am sure they will like it”.
We agree with Indira on this note.
