Acting is all about challenging yourself. Trying something new and playing a role which you never think you can do. We have heard many actors sharing that playing negative and grey characters. Portraying an antagonist gives them a chance to be someone they aren’t in real life. The grey characters have more space to be explored, more emotions and realism, which makes them more complex roles to play and do justice to.
Recently, Ariah Agarwal, who is presently seen in Dangal TV’s ‘Prem Bandhan’ as Shweta shares that she is fascinated by negative characters and how she prepared for it. Sharing more on this, Ariah says, “I loved that Shweta is out and out negative! She is completely a mean girl. I was always fascinated by such roles and wanted to try playing one. For my present role, l prepared by listening to music that makes me feel like a boss babe and bad guy by Billie Eilish.”
“I also got to learn something new and different in terms of acting. Loud acting is not always good for acting. I already knew that but here I got to execute it. I am glad I got out of my comfort zone and did something different,” she added.
There are indeed actors who dared to let go of their positive actor image and explored themselves as actors by playing negative characters and garnered critical appraisal and awards for their performances.
‘Prem Bandhan’ is a story about an independent girl who has the responsibility of her family on her shoulders and how she meets a crossroad and ends up marrying a businessman with a mysterious past.
Watch ‘Prem Bandhan’ from Monday to Saturday at 1930 hrs on Dangal TV.
