Ashwini Kalsekar turns lady don (With Image)June 27th, 2012 - 1:36 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, June 27 (IANS) Actress Ashwini Kalsekar, who will be seen as a lady don in TV show “Afsar Bitiya”, says her character is “weird” and “unpredictable”.
In the show, which airs on Zee TV, she will play 40-something Sikka Thakuraine, who is carrying forward her husband’s legacy of being involved in illegal activities.
She is called Sikka Thakuraine because instead of bindi she wears a sikka (coin) on her forehead. This weird obsession stems from her innate love for money, which makes her accept every possible means to earn it.
“This is not the first time I am playing a negative character but definitely the first time where I will be playing a tough yet comical don. I will be essaying the role of a quintessential village goon who is held in awe by all and sundry including the police, given her menacing reputation,” Ashwini said in a statement.
“She is very weird and unpredictable. She will never call people by their first names rather refer to them as some animal of her choice. The only human side to this character is her relationship with her daughter who she dearly loves,” she added.
The actress is known for playing Jigyasa in “Kasamh Se” (2006) and Sasha in “Shanti” (1995).
