Pooja Banerjee is looking forward to the leap in Kumkum Bhagya. The actress revealed, “The creative team has assured me that it will come out very well. There will be many changes to my character. You can call it her 2.0 avatar.”
She had replaced Naina Singh last year as Abhi (Shabir Ahluwalia) and Pragya’s (Sriti Jha) daughter Rhea. “I never analyse my offers i.e. whether my character is fresh or has been there from the start. I should like what I am doing. Period,” she said. “I love that Rhea is no typical goody-goody gal. She has many layers and mood swings. Yet I had to be careful not to go overboard, for she is still the daughter of Abhi and Pragya,” added Pooja.
She has earlier been seen in shows like Nagarjuna – Ek Yoddha and Dil Hi Toh Hai. Upon her bonding with her co-stars, Pooja revealed, “Unfortunately, since I came onboard during the pandemic, I have not yet had the time to gel with others. When I first started; I was only bothered about taking care of myself. But luckily, our production house Balaji Telefilms takes social distancing very seriously. They call us to set only when our sequences are there.”
Unlike others, Pooja has no qualms about playing gray characters. She had impressed us with her performance as Nivedita Basu Sengupta in Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2.
