Telly star Amrapali Gupta
is enjoying the double bonanza in life, literally. Amrapali, who was in
news some months back for tying the knot with actor Yash Sinha, whom
she met on the sets of 'Teen Bahuraaniyan', is also basking in the
spotlight moments that her character Tanveer is earning her right now in
her show 'Qubool Hai'. In a chat with TOI, the hazel eyed actress talks
about how life changed post marriage, playing a negative character and
more. Excerpts from the chat:
From playing a docile daughter-in-law in Teen Bahuraaniyan to a deadly vamp in Qubool Hai. Your telly trek has undergone quite a dramatic turn.
I didn't want to do only positive roles on TV. There should be new
benchmarks set in an actor's life. And when I came across the
opportunity of playing a negative character in Qubool Hai,
I took it up gladly. I am happy to have taken this decision. Play a
positive character on TV and you will be seen crying forever on screen,
which I didn't want to do. There are emotions other than crying which
are definitely worth giving a try. It's not that playing a negative role
which has villainy come full throttle is an easy alternative to remain
on TV. To play a negative character with conviction requires a lot of
guts and the capability to act.
Were you apprehensive of doing a negative role since the audience always feels sympathetic towards positive characters?
I didn't think twice before doing the role because I knew Gul Khan as I
had worked with her earlier. There are two ways of looking at things.
There is importance of the good because bad exists. No doubt,
by playing a negative character you tend to draw the audience's wrath. I
even get the news of fans of the show demanding omission of my
character because it's too negative. So long as there is a negative
character, there is interest in the story. It evokes lot of emotions -
anger and to a certain extent sympathy, among the audience. Even though I
get hate mails, viewers' compliments motivate me.
Are you finding it difficult to balance work with home since you are married now?
Nothing has changed. The routine remains the same. However, I am no
longer the same Amrapali that I used to be. I moved to my in-laws' place
post marriage. I was so nervous during that time about the changes in
my life. There were feelings of 'oh, no, I am not going to live the life
of a free bird, now that I am getting married,' and so on. But
gradually, everything settled well.
Do you feel conscious before taking up roles on TV?
More than the length of the role, the outcome and feedback is what I think of before nodding a yes
to the role. I have such a supporting husband and in-laws that whatever
decision I make, gets me lot of encouragement from them. Yash gives me
lot of compliments on my performance in shows. My in-laws are pretty
cool too and not like typical in-laws. My mom-in-law takes care of
minute things that I need and sees to it that I don't even do a single
chore at home. She liked my role of Matsya Kanya in Devon Ke Dev Mahadev. Her constructive feedback motivates me a lot.
