Drashti Dhami's identity has already become more of Madhubala, than her off-screen self. This week, Drashti's well-known image will be given a very unusual twist. The Madhubala actress will be donning the hat of a nimbu-mirchi seller in Mumbai for Colors TV's charity-based reality show Mission Sapne.
The gorgeous actress will feature on the show for a noble cause, to help one visually challenged Kusum Dhamne earn her bread by toiling in the hot sun at Mumbai's Oberoi Mall signal. Drashti will be seen turning on the heat, quite literally, by selling chillies.
Drashti Dhami made the most glamourous and charming nimbu-mirchi seller, as she glowed in her beautiful white and pink salwar. It looked like Drashti, of all, was in need of some nimbus and mirchis to ward off evil eyes from her. She made efforts to go that extra step to ensure that she did justice to Kusum. Drashti was seen standing on stools and excitedly tying the nimbu-mirchis to door frames of shops, and even to cars, bikes and autos.
Drashti's penchant for learning new things came across strongly as she learnt from Kusum, how to join the nimbu-mirchis through a thread, with thrill. She came across Nigaar Khan, sister of Gauhar Khan, in her car at the traffic signal and was excited about Nigaar seeing her in the new role.
Sonali Bendre, host of Mission Sapne, had described Drashti's extraordinary dedication and enthusiasm in the task at hand, saying "She was a poor thing as she had to be in the sun to do her job at the traffic signal. We thought she would faint as she seemed so fragile."
She went on to gush about the actress' contribution toward the cause. "She turned out to be a tough girl. She did it and raised money with a smile on her face without cribbing even once," said an impressed Sonali.
The episode of Mission Sapne is definitely going to earn Drashti Dhami a new set of fans!
