Actress Kruttika Desai, who was often seen playing glamorous roles on the small screen, says she was not comfortable playing the role of a mother.
“When you play the role of a mother, it does take some getting used to. Initially I did feel very odd. Imagine playing the mother to someone who is not very far from your own age! Now however, I have gotten used to doing such roles,” said Kruttika, who will soon be seen on Zee TV’ new show “Preet Se Bandhi Ye Dori Ram Milaayi Jodi”.
The actress became popular with shows like “Buniyaad” and “Chandrakanta” in the late 1980s. In recent shows like “Ye Meri Life Hai” and “Do Saheliyan”, she has played a mother.
Kruttika says she feels lucky that she is playing a mother on screen after so many years of being in the industry.
“These days I see young girls who are playing the roles of mothers and grandmothers barely two years after beginning their careers. Thankfully, I had a chance of at least portraying someone of my own age for quite a while before I was offered such a role,” she added.
