The gorgeous and versatile actor Sucheta Khanna is making a comeback with Sony SAB’s comedy sitcom Shrimaan Shrimati Phir Se. Sucheta will be seen playing the role of a Simple Maharashtrian Wife. The best attribute of her character is that she shares a very fun and friendly relation with her husband. Here’s a conversation with Sucheta about her character.
Filmy Sansaar – How did you prepare for this role? Were there any challenges ?
Sucheta Khanna – It’s a great responsibility and a challenge to enact a character which is done by the legendary Late Reema Lagoo. I have done a show with her in the past and all I did was observe her which made me learn a lot. The only preparation I have done for this role was that I watched the show many times to enact the role with simplicity and perfection just the way she did. If I can match up even a little to Reemaji, I feel my job is done.
Filmy Sansaar – How do you feel to be a part of the remake of the iconic show, Shrimaan Shrimati that has been so popular on Indian Television in the 90s?
Sucheta Khanna – It’s a privilege to be a part of this show. The character of Koki is the most crucial and a central role and all I want is to do my best to justify the role.
Filmy Sansaar – How do you feel returning on Sony SAB?
Sucheta Khanna – I feel I am back home. SAB is Home. I have had my longest association with Sony SAB and it’s a privilege to be back here.
Filmy Sansaar – You are referred to as the Comedy Queen of daily soaps. Do you like doing comedy the most?
Sucheta Khanna – I don’t think I am the Comedy Queen but thank you so much for the compliment. Comedy is something I love and I love doing it more than drama. With the love, I have for comedy, I feel I am the best in it and the audiences also love seeing me doing comedy genres.
Filmy Sansaar – Did you get a chance to meet Late Reemaji (Reema Lagoo) before the shoot? How was it portraying the role of Koki which was played by the legend, Reema Ji ?
Sucheta Khanna – Well I did not meet her but I did speak to her on the phone. I told her about been given the opportunity to portray her role and I need her blessings. I even told her how I was hoping to do justice to her role and that is when she happily told me “Suchi my Blessing are always with you”.
