Deepali Pansare is upset on not bagging lead rolesComputer engineer turned actor Deepali Pansare aka Payal of Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon (Star Plus) is an unhappy soul. Reason? She is not getting lead roles. “I have to be satisfied with parallel characters who hardly have a screen presence of more than five minutes in a 20 minute long episode. The lead characters get maximum attention from the industry (creatives, channels , media etc) which hurts. Despite that, I have managed to create a niche for myself by doing varied character roles over the past three years, such as comedy in Dill Mill Gayye and a very balanced and understanding girl Nandani who tries to reform her guy Abhishek Tiwari (Deepak Wadhwa) in Dhoondh Legi Manzil Humein. However, the rub lies in the fact people don’t see my above efforts and only call me for mother roles, like the one I had played in Devi.”
Deepali went on. “I had taken up that Imagine show as a challenge for it was supposed to be something like a Mother India role, however it did not turn out like that and I was stuck in the mother, elder sister and bhabhi zone.”
If given a chance, cute Deepali would love to adorn a completely western avatar with shorts skirts et al. Will that not shock the viewers ?
“I am an actor and I feel that I have already got an opportunity to show variations in Iss Pyaar Ko Kya. There was a time when people felt that Payal did not have a voice, hence when she had that straight talk with Shyam (Abhaas Mehta), I was flooded with comments on social media about the positive transformation in my character .”
Do you not feel bad when creatives sign up lead actors (Sanaya Irani), who can’t speak Hindi? “No, for if a character is able to connect with the audience, that is an achievement, the language issue is secondary. Having said that the channel should consider all the facts before signing on an actor, but they do have their own parameters, I guess.”
