“You will not believe how I bagged the role!! I was sitting at home when one day I got a call from an unknown number telling me something in Hindi. I could not understand as my Hindi is not so good. I disconnected the line thinking it to be a prank call. The next moment a person rang me up and spoke in Bengali about the fact that they wanted me for the role and that the way I spoke Hindi will suit the role very well” said actress Tanima Sen who will be seen playing the role of Shobha in the soon to start serial Swaragini on Colors.
The story of Swaragini is about two warring neighborhood families namely the Bose and the Gadodia family. Swara and Ragini, the daughters of the two families have been brought up with different values. The serial is actually a journey of how the two youngsters discover their true identities and whether they are able to bridge this ever widening gap between their respective families.
Alka Kaushal plays the role of Parvati said “Tanima is a darling and she is very popular in Kolkata. Everywhere we went for shooting she was literally mobbed. It is indeed a pleasure to share screen space with her”.
Helly Shah (Swara) and Tejaswi Prakash (Ragini), both on their first visit to the city were much excited. Having shot in various parts of the city like Millenium Park, Victoria Memorial, the young actresses were amazed at the culture of the city. Shooting in the tram also made the actresses much excited as they had never travelled in one before.
Swaragini starts from 2nd March, 2015 on Colors every Monday to Friday at 9.30 pm.
