Producer Ekta Kapoor, who is coming up with a new
show Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi, which
marks the comeback of Gauri Pradhan Tejwani, says the actress will
plays a character too practical in life.
Gauri became a popular face after featuring as the female lead
in Ekta's show "Kutumb".
Ekta of Balaji Telefilms says while Gauri has only played
positive roles till now, she would be seen as a character,
bordering on the negative.
"Gauri is a brilliant actor...I am honoured that she is working
with me again. I think it's an interesting character, it's
different from what Gauri has done all these years on TV.
"She has a very pretty face so she has been given classically
positive roles. I won't say this is a negative role, but I wouldn't
classify it as a completely white character (either)," the
39-year-old said here Monday at the launch of the show.
Elaborating on Gauri's character, Ekta added: "She has a lot of
edges, she plays a woman who is overtly practical. People can even
call her stone-hearted because she gives importance to her mind and
not her heart.
"She wants her daughters be like that, look pretty and marry
right, marry not through heart but brain."
"Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi", to be aired on Colors, also features
actor Shakti Arora as Ranveer and new actress Radhika Madan. The
show will goes on air June 24.
