Veteran actress Ketki Dave who rose to fame with the role of Daksha in Star Plus epic show ‘Kyunki Saas BHI Kabhi Bahu Thi’ is all set to play the role of Baa for the first time.
The actress will be portraying he role of Baa in the upcoming show ‘Tamanna’.
Speaking about her character Ketki shared, "I am very happy to play this role, as it is the first time I am doing it. The comparisons were straight away in place as my mother, Sarita Joshi who is a legendary actress who is also currently portraying the role of a mother on 'Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi.' I literally said to people, dekho zamana kaisa aa gaya hai, my mother and I are both playing mothers on-screen despite of the age difference. (laughs)"
She added, "I was initially skeptical of taking up this role, but then I saw today's young girls playing mothers and some of them even grandmothers, why can't I! After all I am a mother in my real life and my camaraderie with my mother will help me even more in portraying it. Then I took up the role and I am enjoying playing it now."
So, what is the show, ‘Tamanna’ all about?
"Its a show set in the backdrop of Jamnagar. 'Tamanna' a quintessential Gujarati household and hence the word 'baa' is being used. And I know many people would wonder the novelty in playing this character, as it has been played so many times and in so many ways. But this is a totally different take at the character. Its not the typical grandmother and it has a lot of shades to it. The writers have done a brilliant job in weaving the character and the show. It is set to go on-air from February 1st and I am excited about it," concludes Ketki.
Here’s wishing you Good Luck Ketki!
