Actress Sakshi Tanwar already an established name in the television industry. Sakshi made it to the headlines after grabbing a role in Aamir Khan’s much talked about ‘Dangal’, has admitted that it was a whirpool of emotions for her initially. The actress couldn’t believe it was happening.
Sakshi told, “When I got a call from Aamir sir, I went blank. I was like ‘Oh, okay, well.’ I didn’t know what to do after that. Moments later after the call, I was excited, happy and probably also overwhelmed. There was a mix of emotions in me”.
“The first scene that I shot with him was when his character realises that a gold medal is a gold medal, whether a girl brings it or a boy. But it wasn’t intimidating at all. I was very comfortable with him,” she said.
Further Sakshi added, “We all had met earlier for reading sessions. So we knew how things will go. With actors generally you know how things will pan out on the set and with Aamir it was an extremely comfortable experience”.
“One was when the trailer got released and I saw myself in it. The other was, when we had screening of the rough cut and I saw my name in the credits. These were the moments where I felt ‘yes I am in this’. Before that everybody used to tell me ‘Oh my God you’re in Dangal’ and while I knew that very well, it wasn’t sinking in,” said Sakshi.
Sakshi best known for her portrayal of Parvati Agarwal in the soap opera ‘Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii’ and ekta kapoor tv show ‘bade ache lagte hain’.
‘Dangal’ is based on the life of ace wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat and the journey of his daughters Geeta and Babita Phogat. Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, ‘Dangal’ is slated to release on December 23.
