Ev­ery­one plays dirty to achieve big: Rashami

Ac­tor Rashami De­sai (right) might be re­ceiv­ing lot of ap­pre­ci­a­tion from her fans for por­tray­ing an emo­tional and sweet daugh­terin-law in her cur­rent show, but the kind of roles she wants to do are an extreme op­po­site.

“I feel char­ac­ters with grey shades are more re­al­is­tic. No per­son can be so good as we act on screen — sit­u­a­tion ko apne favour mein karne ke liye (to make a sit­u­a­tion turn in your favour) you will do any­thing,” says Rashami.

Hav­ing played a neg­a­tive role in her TV show Ut­taran (2008-2015), the ac­tor says she can re­late to such char­ac­ters. “These kind of roles are based on the fact that main kisi ka achha nahi kar sakti, main kisi ka bura bhi nahi karna chahti (I can’t do good to any­one nor do I in­tend to harm any­one). I only want to do ev­ery­thing for my­self. Some peo­ple brand them as ma­nip­u­la­tive. But you can’t deny that you will play dirty to achieve some­thing big in life.”

Tired of do­ing saas-bahu shows, Rashami is now wait­ing for an op­por­tu­nity to act in a biopic. She says, “Hav­ing played ev­ery kind of char­ac­ter on small screen, I want to por­tray our for­mer In­dian Prime Min­is­ter Indira Gandhi in some show now.”
