Urvashi Dholakia Says She's Done Playing A Saree-Clad Vamp, Wants To Explore Uncharted Waters In Her Acting Career
TV actress Urvashi Dholakia shot to fame with her portrayal of Komolika in one of the most popular TV shows, Kasauti Zindagi Ki, which premiered in 2001. She's still considered to be one of the hottest vamps the TV world has ever seen. The actress has, however, now said she wants to break free from this image. As reported by ETimes, Urvashi expressed her wish to try something new.

Urvashi Dholakia told Etimes, “As much as I love the work that I have done, I also feel that there is a certain stereotyping that has happened. Somewhere, people stop seeing you outside the character that you play. I’m done being a sari-clad vamp, it’s time people see my other shades.” When quizzed if she was dropping hints of her upcoming projects, she mentioned though many offers have come her way, she wants to try something new. She said she would not mind playing negative or a grey character provided it has its own spark.

She added, “There have been a lot of offers, but I want to take up something that I haven’t already played. I don’t mind playing a negative character or a character with grey shades, but it has to be beyond the realm of what I have done. Times have changed and I am itching to once again play a role that becomes iconic, the medium can be any — television, OTT or films. What’s most important is that there needs to be a spark that can light up the screen.”

Urvashi started her career with the iconic TV show, Dekh Bhai Dekh, and also appeared on period drama Chandrakanta. She won the sixth season of Bigg Boss and participated in the last season of Nach Baliye with her ex-partner Anuj Sachdeva.
