Urvashi Dholakia won’t do a negative role again…

While actor urvashi Dholakia has been pretty happy and content with journey on the small screen, she laments when show makers can’t see past her image of a vamp, courtesy her character of Komolika in Kasautii Zindagi Kay that made her a household name, and continues to follow her even after 15 years. “Everyone still calls me Komolika. Just because one thing has become so powerful, it’s wrong to think I can’t do anything else. Where is the creativity of the producers and creative directors when they can’t think of me beyond that one role?” she questions, adding that due to this stereotyping, whatever she has done in the last so many years, hardly gets talked about.

In the recent years, Dholakia has starred in shows such as Chandrakanta, Ishq Mein Marjawan, Tu Aashiqui, Naagin 6, however, fans still complain that they get to see very less of her on screen. “I keep coming and going because something has to come my way which is more exciting that what I actually get. I can’t do the same monotonous thing again and again. I have been typecast so much. It’s like saying rekha ne Umraao jaan kia toh bas that is it, that is the peak of everything. No, it doesn’t stop there!,” reasons the actor.

In fact, Dholakia reveals that immediately after Kasautii Zindagi Kay, she consciously decided to do comedy Circus to break away from Komolika’s image in audience’s minds. “I am humbled that till today’s day and age, people share Komolika memes and reels, they keep me alive. I am beyond grateful. But, at the same time, I also want to be recognised for other roles that I have done,” she notes, pointing out the difficulties she has to face to break the image.

Currently seen in tv show pushpa Impossible where she essays the role of a lawyer, Dholakia is hopeful that audience would accept her do something different. “I’m happy and thankful that the makers at least thought of me in a different light, and I got this chance to play an out and out positive character. I know miracles can’t happen, but there has to be a start somewhere. Now, when I hear people referring to me as Devi Singh Shikhavat (her role in the show), I feel the start has happened. So, yes, I’d love to do more such roles,” shares the actor, asserting that she won’t take up a negative role for any tv show.
