Jahanvi Dhanrajgir, who recently made her acting debut with the film 'Bol Hau' is now ready to explore the OTT space. She will be seen in the new season of Ekta Kapoor's much awaited web series Broken But Beautiful 3 starring Sidharth Shukla, Sonia Rathee and Ehan Bhatt along with her.
In an exclusive chat with SpotboyE.com, Jahanvi shared some interesting things about her character in the series and working with Sidharth Shukla. Read on;
How excited are you for Broken But Beautiful 3?
I have a lot of excitement for the series with the kind of response it's been receiving already. And the love is being showered. I am getting great feedback.
This will also mark your digital debut. So were you planning for it looking at the platform's demand?
I love OTT platforms but it wasn't a plan to make a debut or something of that sort. So while my first film 'Bolo Hau' was releasing, I got a call to come and meet Priyanka Ghose, the director. I was completely unprepared because I didn't know that I was going for an audition. And she kind of gave me a character and I fell in love with the character. And she suddenly asks me can you audition for the character right now? So, I got nervous but I managed to pull it off and I am so glad that I got the part. It's been a pleasure bringing the character to life.
Now, we are excited to hear more about this character...
The character name is Sakshi, who is an author and comes into Agastya (Sidharth Shukla) life during a very difficult phase. She plays a very important part there. Both Sakshi and Agastya have a past but their stories are very different. Sakshi's character has a lot of depth with a lot of layers and a beautiful looking character. Hence, I thoroughly enjoyed playing it.
How much did you enjoy shooting scenes with Sidharth Shukla (Agastya)?
I had heard about him but met him for the first time during shoot only. Working with him has been very comfortable. As he is very humble and down to earth. It is always nice facing the camera with someone like that because it reflects good in your characters also.
What was his first impression on you?
The first day I was shooting, he came up to me and introduced himself to me and I think that was really very cool. Making people around him very comfortable and that's nice.
Any scene which turned out memorable to you?
Can't reveal about that scene now but surely after the series comes out.
Sidharth is playing an aspiring director in the series whereas you have already been assistant director in many popular films.. Did you tell him about that?
We did speak about me being an assistant director and all of that. Our director Priyanka actually used to joke around me by taking over on the assistants. But frankly this time it was nice being an actor and not an assistant director (laughs).
You have already assisted in directing films like Kick, Gunday and Sultan. Do you want to focus on becoming a director or actor?
Right now, I just want to focus on acting but I may also direct in future if I find a story which will move me enough to make that.
