For Shashank Vyas, Pratyusha is still Anandi
It’s a fact that Toral Rasputra has been roped in to play the new Anandi in Colors’ Balika Vadhu (Sphere Origins). But for actor Shashank Vyas, Pratyusha Banerjee is still Anandi.
Shashank, better known as Jagya, has shared screen space with Pratyusha for more than two years. Hence, it’s difficult for him to erase her from his mind, as he tells us, “Even now when I think of Anandi, Pratyusha’s face appears right in front of me. I think, I will take a while to take Toral as Anandi as Pratyusha has given some brilliant performances in the show,” he observes.
What does the actor have to say about his co-star’s sudden decision to leave the serial? “All I can say is that if she gets something good, this was the right decision. And at the end of the day she did what her heart asked her to. So, I wish her all the best in her future endevours,” Shashank avers.
“I think, for TV shows, actors are not important as the character is. So, Anandi is not about Avika Gor, Pratyusha Banerjee or Toral. It’s Anandi who holds a very important place in the hearts of the viewers. In fact, even with me when I go out, people regonise me as Jagya and not as Shashank,” he hastens to add.
