‘Kasautii Zindagii Kay’ Actor Anju Jadhav Gears Up For Her Bollywood Debut With ‘Dosti Ke Side Effects’19th January 2019
The gorgeous actress Anju Jadhav who tickled your funny bones in Sab TV’s Dil Deke Dekho is all set to make her Bollywood debut this year. Anju will make her appearance for the first time on the silver screen with Dosti Ke Side Effects which is slated for release on 8 February 2019. The film also stars Sapna Chaudhary, Zuber K Khan, and Vikrant Anand. Anju is one of the lead stars in the movie in which she is playing the role of a simple 21st-century girl named Avani. The actress, who is quite busy with the promotions these days, spoke to us about her experience from entering the television industry to stepping into Bollywood. Check out what she has to say about her journey and experience.
As the release date of her debut movie is approaching, the actress has a bagful of emotions going on inside her. Sharing the details of the same with us, Anju told:
“This is entirely a very different feeling. While I am very excited about my movie right now, there also is the ‘butterflies in the stomach’ feelings. The trailer of my movie just released recently and I am overwhelmed to see the immense love that it has received. It has already crossed one million views and now there is eagerness, excitement as well as nervousness as I think about the response that the movie will get once it gets released.”
Having done some very successful television shows, Anju Jadhav is quite an established name in the TV industry already. So was Bollywood always a plan for her or did it happen by chance? The actress replies:
“Every person aspires to move one step ahead of wherever they are in life. Undoubtedly, Bollywood is a much bigger industry than the television industry. So for me, this is like moving one step ahead in life.”
So does that mean it’s a goodbye to the television industry? Anju replies:
“Not at all. The television industry is very close to my heart. I started my journey as an actor with TV only and I am never going to leave it. In fact, right now I am in discussion with a few people for movies as well as TV projects. So whichever works well for me, I will take up that. Basically, I just believe in enjoying my work as an actor – be it for the television or films.
Anju will be playing the role of a simple girl named in Dosti Ke Side Effects who looks forward to living a simple life but a dramatic turn of events change everything for her and she turns into a completely different person in the latter half of the film. So was it challenging for her to play two entirely different shades for the same character? Anju says:
Well, yes it was quite challenging. For the first half of the movie, Avani’s character is exactly like how I am in real life. She is a simple girl who gives utmost importance to her friends and family. However, she turns into a completely different person in the second half which is totally different from what I am in reality. So I watched a lot of movies portraying a similar character, worked a lot on my body language, the way of speaking and a lot of other things. You see, this is what I love the most about my profession. In order to prepare for different characters that we play on-screen, acting allows us to get exposed to so many different cultures, personalities and lot more. This way, we end up learning a lot of exciting things.
Anju’s first movie is all about friendship, and fortunately for her, she found some amazing friends through this movie. She told us how all the four actors have become an indispensable part of each other’s lives and how they helped each other to improve their shots whenever required.
Anju comes from an army background and never thought actually being a part of the showbiz. She expresses her excitement, “My father never wanted me to get in this field, but I tried my luck, my mom convinced my father to allow me to come to Bombay from MP but today after looking at all my hard work and efforts my dad is super proud and happy that I did what I always wanted to do.”
We wish Anju Jadhav all the best for Dosti Ke Side Effects and all her future endeavors.
