Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2's Pooja Banerjee: 'I Took 1.5 Hours To Get Ready With The Help Of 5 People, Don't Know How Will I Manage Alone'- EXCLUSIVE
We often hear stories of actors taking a lot of time to get into their respective characters' look especially in mythological and historical dramas. But do you know Pooja Banerjee, who is currently playing Nivedita Basu, on Ekta Kapoor's Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 has a similar story?

And this is the reason why Pooja is really tense as the show is set to resume its shoot soon.  Talking to us exclusively about shooting while following social distancing and precautionary measures on the set, Pooja said, "We really don't know when the shoot is finally going to start and how we will manage. In my makeup room, there used to be usually 5 people, helping me out to get ready-two hair stylists, one makeup artiste and two people for my saree draping and jewellery. So, if I will have to do all of this myself, I don't know how I will be able to as I take an hour and half to get ready with the help of these people."

When asked if she doesn't get bored spending so much time on makeup on each shoot, the actress said, "No, because I love getting ready and I am a jewellery person, so I get to wear something beautiful every day. It takes time to get ready as my makeup especially, my eye makeup takes a lot of time."

Pooja, in an earlier interview with us, had revealed how people have started getting scared of her in real life too as she plays a grey character.  "People feel surprised that I am playing Nivedita Basu. They come and ask me, 'aap sach mein wahin hai jo Nivedita Basu bani hai?' Because I just can't get angry in real life and on-screen they see me in such an avatar. Post the show, people have started getting scared of me, thinking that Pooja na abhi daant degi.  In fact, Sahil who is playing my husband Anupam in the show, also keeps telling me that people come to him and say, 'hame aapse bast karni hai but dar lagta hai Nivedita daant degi agar aapse baat karenge to' (laughs). People are taking my character so seriously," Pooja had told us. 

The Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 actress is currently seen in AltBalaji's Kehne Ko Humsafar Hai 3 and has been receiving some really good reviews for it.
