Srishty Rode: I would love to play Balika Vadhu’s Anandi

If given an opportunity, the popular television actor would love to try her hand at portraying Anandi from the popular show on Colors, Balika Vadhu

Srishty Rode, who was last seen for a short time on Chhoti Bahu says that she would have loved to play Anandi, which is currently being portrayed by Toral Rasputra, “If I was given a chance, I would have loved to work in Balika Vadhu as Anandi. Everybody knows her and the character is something really different on the show.”

Daughter of cinematographer Tony Rode, Srishty, whose big break was the Fair-n-Lovely ad, and appeared in shows like Yeh Ishq Haaye and then Shobha Somnath Ki on Zee TV. Her father, who has been in the industry for 35 years, was not so keen about Srishty entering showbiz, but after she appeared in the Fair-n-Lovely ad, he allowed her to fullfil her dreams.

Since then she has been pursuing her dream of acting. Srishty will now be seen as Sarita in Punar Vivah… Ek Nayi Umeed. Talking about her character, she said: “I have played the role of a college going girl, I have played a warrior princess in Shobha Somnath Ki, and now I will be playing a housewife. So, I am very happy and excited that I got something like this.”

But the actor is really different from the character she is set to play in the show. Apparently Srishty has never worn a sari in her real life. Nonetheless, the actor stills claims to be super excited about the show. “I hope to learn a lot from it – acting-wise and dressing-wise”.

Srishty took a break from TV after Shobha Somnath Ki, but reveals that she is a workaholic and gets bored if she does not have anything to do. Well, we hope the new show Punar Vivah…Ek Nayi Umeed starting on May 20 on Zee TV will keep the actor extremely busy.
