After spending 10 months working on Nath Zewar Ya Zanjeer, actress Anupama Solanki who plays the role of Kalavati has left the show in January. Anupama who is deeply attached to this show is sad that she had to leave the show after working on it for so many months.
Actor Quits Show Over Screen Time
Shining some more light on her decision, she says,” I had joined “Nath Krishna aur Gauri ki kahani” in April 2023 and I had left the show in the first week of January. I have decided to quit the show because suddenly my number of shooting days has been cut, therefore there is nothing left in the show for me. Hence, I decided to leave the show. To be very honest, this is a mutual understanding between the production house and me -- they also agreed with my decision. It was a great experience with Shoonya Square Production and the channel Dangal Tv. I was not willing to leave the show but since they have cut my screen time despite my character being so powerful, I have no choice but to leave. I am only taking back good memories with me.”
Diverse Roles: Breaking Typecast in the Industry
On asking about the kind of roles she is searching for now, she says, "I am not bound by any particular role, whether it’s positive or negative. As an actor, I know my face value and caliber. In my previous Sony TV show Vighnaharta Ganesha, I played lord Vishnu's avatar Mohini and recently I played a positive character in “Maddam Sir”. I have also done shows like “Dayan”, "Yeh hai Mohabbatein" and the Reality Show "Juzzbaat". It’s not that I am only getting negative roles, I’m getting both positive and negative characters both and I am very happy about this as I can diversify my portfolio. I feel that if you work hard on your character, you can break the typecast image.
In our industry, it’s very difficult to break the typecast image but it’s not impossible; I feel that I am the biggest example of someone who is playing different characters with a strong conviction. I feel that the industry has changed now and casting agencies have a vast vision. Additionally, my career is not only restricted to acting in television shows -- opportunities like web series, Music Albums, and Collaborations with new brands are coming up frequently. If you compare it to the 90s era, we have a lot more options and opportunities to showcase our talent. After Reels & Shorts gained popularity on social media, anyone can become a star overnight but also vanish overnight. The biggest challenge is maintaining that fame and your acting career. Getting good and classy work is getting more challenging.”
