Mumbai: Actress Anita Hassanandani, who is doing a cameo role in TV show `Madhubala - Ek Ishq Ek Junoon`, agreed to play a superstar in the show as she had never done similar role in the past.
Anita, who mostly plays demure characters, has acted in shows like `Kabhii Sautan Kabhii Sahelii` and `Kkavyanjali`. She was also seen in movies like `Krishna Cottage` and `Just Married`.
"A different role, but a cameo. It is a nice show, nice set up and it seemed really interesting. I had never done such a role before and that excited me. Just a cameo, but it`s nice to work with different people, go to different sets, that`s why I am in `Madhubala...`," Anita said here on sets of the show.
She is playing a superstar who is approached by lead actor RK (played by Vivian D`sena) for his film after he has been boycotted by the film industry.
"RK is looking for a heroine for his film and he approaches me because I am this big star. When my career started, RK supported me and now he is expecting support from me," Anita said.
"Basically that`s the cameo, I am playing a superstar who has been approached to play RK`s heroine," she added.
The development in the show is likely to trigger a change in lead protagonist Madhubala`s (played by Drashti Dhami) life who is expected to start her career as a film heroine in the show.
