MUMBAI: Bade Achhe Lagte Hain 2 is one of the most-watched shows on the small screens.
The show stars Nakuul Mehta and Disha Parmar in the lead roles.
Ekta Kapoor has roped in some of the best actors from television to play pivotal roles in the show.
Ritu Vashistha is one of them who is currently seen playing the role of Meetu in Bade Achhe Lagte Hain 2. The actress has been lauded for her performance in the popular drama series.
The actress’ character is not completely negative but has grey shades and also a dash of the comic element.
How challenging is it for you to play such a character?
Yes, my character is not out-and-out negative neither it is completely comic. Initially, I was thinking about how I am going to do this. As and when I started settling with the character, I started understanding how to make it real. I have been told by many of my co-artists that there are people like my character. They don’t realize what they say and they might hurt someone. Mami is very straightforward. I am not a very intelligent character. I like to play it like that.
How has your experience been so far with the star cast?
My experience has been amazing. Everybody is too much fun. They all are very sweet. We all have great fun on set. We are like friends and we have become one big gang. It’s like a picnic. It is more fun to shoot when we are shooting for a celebration track where the entire cast is there to shoot. Everybody gets along well with each other.
Actors often feel that they are getting stereotyped. Did you feel the same?
No, I don’t think so. If this is what I do is the best and people like me in it then I don’t have any problem at all. I like it when people appreciate me. I would definitely like to try something different and it would be quite a challenge also but I like doing these kinds of roles because it’s fun as I get to do something new every time.
Ritu has previously starred in projects like Kaisi Yeh Yaariyan, Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon, Banoo Main Teri Dulhann, Do Dil Ek Jaan, Haar Jeet and Vishwaas, among others.
