Vish actor Debina Bonnerjee: Indians has always enjoyed mythical and supernatural stories


It is just that my eyes are shut for the maximum time. It is just that recently he told me that he always knew I could do it as I am playing myself onscreen (laughs). It is very interesting to work on this show and I am sure, the audience will find it much more interesting to watch. Personally, I love watching and hearing these stories. Popular Photos

I think real characters are most challenging. I work on every project as it is my first show and give it all. As kids, we have all heard tales of magic and enjoyed it thoroughly. It is fun when we see these films as he has to literally convince me to open my eyes. Advertising

Also starring Krrip Kapur Suri, Vishal Vashishtha and Sana Khan, the fantasy drama goes on air today. I want the audience and industry to be surprised with every role I do. Do you enjoy watching horror shows and films? Vishaili or Sabrina is an antagonist with a twist. When I did the look test, Gurmeet was more confident than me that it will get through. She has supernatural powers and the reactions she gets from people is really fun. More Explained

As an actor, we don’t have much say on the timings of the show. Vishkanyas and Naagins are our original mythical characters. And I feel it is only because I worked really hard and had the patience to wait. But in the coming times, I want to do more realistic roles. I think it is really entertaining. Vishal Vashishtha, Sana Makbul Khan, Debina Bonnerjee and Krrip Kapur Suri pose for photographers during Vish press meet. You have had a long journey in the television industry. Even when I am not working, I try to push the boundary and attempt something new, be it art or fitness forms. Do you feel lucky that you are still getting a chance to play such glamorous roles? Gurmeet (Chaudhary) and I love watching horror films. Absolutely. Advertising

He loved it. I have done quite a number of roles but this is something really new. As an actor, what kind of roles challenge you more? God is kind and he will surely give you the best. You started your journey playing Sita in Ramayan and now you are playing a negative role. While we all talk about Aladdin and Alif Laila, it is all Arabian tales. Advertising

Indians have always been interested in mythical and supernatural tales. It is easier for me to act but playing a real character can be tough. How is the equation with them? It actually helped us expand our imagination. That’s how husbands are! It didn’t make us superstitious or traumatize us. He was convinced and encouraged me for the show. It is the first time you are working with Krip, Vishal and Sana. From the time I started, I had the attitude of not being complacent. What was Gurmeet’s reaction to the first look of your show? The show is in the late-night slot. That is the producers and channel’s prerogative. Do you feel these kinds of shows promote superstition? Whatever be the slot, since we don’t have a stylish, sexy and enthralling show on television now, people will definitely enjoy watching Vish. Debina Bonnerjee recently spoke exclusively to indianexpress.com about the supernatural genre, playing a mythical role and more. Do you feel this will affect viewership? It’s a multidimensional character. The best part is that my character has a different equation with each and so I get to do different things. 0
