Bubbly Sulagna Panigrahi, better known as Dhara of Amber Dhara fame, is left tanned after shooting for a month in the desert region of Jaisalmer, Rajasthan. It"s been nearly a month since Panigrahi has returned to Mumbai, but the heat of Jaisalmer is still embedded on her skin. The actress was in Jaisalmer to shoot for her newly launched show Do saheliyan.
“We had a real hard time shooting in Jaisalmer. Imagine yourself bare feet in the desert and roaming in temperatures in excess of 40 degree celsius. For one month, I had to go through this ordeal everyday. As a result, I got tanned badly. The sunscreen creams were of no use. It"s now close to a month, since we"ve returned to Mumbai, but my skin still hasn"t cleaned," said Panigrahi.
Interestingly, a year back, Sulagna was offered the lead role in Agle janam mohe bitiya hi kijo but was allegedly rejected by the channel because they wanted a girl with dark complexion. Well, now that she"s turned little dark, isn"t it the right time to tell the channel to cast her in that show?
Laughs! “No, I don"t think that was a wise now. I"m happy doing Do Saheliyan. Chota Ganpathy is a great production house to work with," concludes Panigrahi.
As easy as it may seem but acting isn"t everyone"s cup of tea. One requires great powers of mental and physical concentration. Actors, in particularly TV stars, have to grind it out in tough conditions .Since most TV shows highlight rural life, actors often have to do without the usual luxuries associated with an urban studio.
