Mumbai, Jan 7 (IANS): Actress Shweta Tripathi has always portrayed strong characters such as Golu Gupta in ‘Mirzapur’ and Sandhya in ‘Haraamkhor’ to name a few. She says she resonates with such roles because she is a bit of a fiery person herself.
With ‘Yeh Kaali Kaali Ankhein’, she brings forth softer and warmer character tour screens.
Shweta, while talking about her past characters and the challenges of playing a romantic role in ‘Yeh Kaali Kaali Ankhein’, said: “I’m someone who has played a lot of strong characters in the past, and I can resonate with them as well because I am a bit of a fiery person. “But I think the biggest difference between Shikha’s life and mine is that there is a lot of pain in hers and embodying that pain while not having felt it, was a huge challenge.
Shweta said she has done action in the past but “this kind of action is very different.
“I find myself crying while running through gunshots and blasts. I am used to not being afraid. So even if it’s using a gun, I would not be scared, I would pick it up and shoot it, as opposed to here.”
Talking about her character in the Netflix series, she added: “I play a character who’s fearful, yet, driven by love amidst chaos, and isn’t trying to emerge as a hero. I think that has been the biggest challenge.”
The romantic thriller series ‘Yeh Kaali Kaali Ankhein’ also stars Tahir Raj Bhasin and Anchal Singh.
