Mumbai: Young actress Pallavi Kulkarni, who has made a comeback to TV after seven years with Ekta Kapoor's 'Itna Karo Na Mujhe Pyaar', says she she has no qualms about playing a single mother to five kids.
The 32-year-old actress, who starred in shows like 'Kehta Hai Dil' and 'Vaidehi', said she is comfortable playing a mature role on screen as she wanted to move on from college romances.
The show deals with the relationship challenges between divorced couple, Dr Nachiket Khanna (played by Ronit Roy)and his independent wife Ragini Patel (Pallavi), who become reconnected because of their children.
Pallavi said though she was initially hesitant to play a mother to grown-up children, the offer was too good for her to let go. "I am fully ready to play a mother on screen. In fact I wanted to do a mature character and this show has given me exactly that. I want to do more strong characters now. I wouldn't mind a love story but the role should have many shades.
"I am a mother to a one-and-a half-year-old son and initially I was little hesitant for the character as I did not know if I would look convincing on screen or not but I had full faith in Ekta Kapoor and the role was too good for me to say no because of this reason," Pallavi told PTI.
The actress, who took a break from acting to enjoy her marital life, said the Sony show is a perfect comeback for her. The actress added being a mother in real life actually helped her better her performance in the show as she could feel for her reel kids.
"It is easy to bring out motherly emotions on screen as I have a son. It makes things natural for me and I can relate to how my character would be feeling because this emotion is universal," she said.
Pallavi, who is having a great time shooting with Ronit, said the duo share a natural chemistry which translates on screen. "He is an amazing person to work with. He is always involved in every aspect of the show. He and Ekta were my biggest reasons to sign the show. The day we met, we clicked instantly. We share a natural chemistry," she said.
