The popular TV actor, who is doing a cameo role in TV show Madhubala – Ek Ishq Ek Junoon, agreed to play a superstar in the show as she had never done anything like that in the past
Anita Hassanandani, who mostly plays demure characters, has acted in shows like Kabhii Sautan Kabhii Sahelii and Kkavyanjali. She was also seen in movies like Krishna Cottage and Just Married.
“A different role, but a cameo. It is a nice show, nice set up and it seemed really interesting. I had never done such a role before and that excited me. Just a cameo, but it’s nice to work with different people, go to different sets, that’s why I am in Madhubala…,” said Anita on sets of the show.
She is playing a superstar who is approached by Rishab Kundra (Vivian D’sena) for his film after he gets boycotted by the producer’s guild. “RK is looking for a heroine for his film and he approaches me because I am this big star. When my career started, RK supported me and now he is expecting support from me,” added Anita.
“Basically that’s the cameo, I am playing a superstar who has been approached to play RK’s heroine,” she added.However, it still remains to be seen if Anita will accept RK’s offer.
The development in the show is likely to trigger a change in lead protagonist Madhubala‘s (Drashti Dhami) life who is expected to start her career as a film heroine in the show.
