Yeh Hai Chahatein : Mridula Oberoi Re-Enters Show !
Good work doesn’t tire you. Mridula Oberoi couldn’t agree more. The actress, who is currently seen as Nimmi Agarwal in Appnapan – Badalte Rishton Ka Bandhan, is all set to return to Yeh Hai Chahatein (YHC) after almost a year. She will thus shoot for two shows at a time. While she plays a bua in Appnapan, she will reprise the character of Saachi Chautala, a cop, in YHC.
Talking about the two characters, Mridula says, “Nimmi is drama, while Saachi is smart, sorted and means business. Nimmi is grey but with a comic element. On the other hand, Saachi will turn negative on her comeback.”
She admits that it’s quite a task to shoot for two shows at a time. She adds, “It’s challenging especially when two characters are different from each other. But a lot of people do that. In fact, I always wanted to balance two shows. I am lucky that both the shows belong to the same production house, so the dates are easily manageable. The production team has done it quite seamlessly. It’s the travelling that gets to me. While I have to drive to Naigaon for the shoot of YHC, the set of Appnapan is in Powai. But this is what I wanted – being busy and I want more of it.”
Mridula may have explored the positive shade briefly as Saachi Chautala, but she enjoys playing mean on screen. She says, “Most of my characters have been negative. I love playing the shade because I am quite emotional in real life. I am nothing like the characters I played on TV. So, it is challenging and draining at times but I have learnt the trick to hitting the right note. I keep my emotions aside when I am in front of the camera (smiles).”
