Rashami Desai: I have changed as a person after ‘Bigg Boss’

Rashami-Desai

Television actress Rashami Desai, who gained immense popularity after participating in the reality show “Bigg Boss 13” in 2019, says she has changed as a person after the show.

“Life has not changed after ‘Bigg Boss’. I have changed as a person, but for good. I’m more content and happier with myself. I’ve understood about self love. I’ve realised that I’m a person who loves people around her. I enjoyed a lot being on the show,” Rashami told IANS.

The actress made her digital debut with the latest web series “Tandoor”.

Revealing details of her character in the series, Rashami said: “The name of my character is Palak who is an independent, fearless and strong minded woman. Since college only they knew each other and apparently the guy was in love with her and then she fell in love with him.”

“There are situations in the story and it is difficult to decide who is right and who is wrong. At the end some will feel it’s the wife, some will feel it is the husband, while some will feel the main culprit is somebody else!” the actress informed, leaving viewers in suspense.

Opening up on what inspired the series, the actress shared: “The story is of the time when I was a child. At that time I didn’t even know what is tandoor. It is about the Tandoor kaand but there have been changes in the story. It’s very beautifully directed by Nivedita (Basu) and the co-actors were really good.”

How was the experience of working with her co-star Tanuj Virwani?

“He is amazing! More than the acting, his detailing work is so good. Every character that he is doing, he works in details for them. Every scene has come out beautifully, when there is love, that is hate, there is anger, everything is looking very real. He has learnt a little bit of direction also, so his point of view is always interesting! I have learnt a lot of things from him technically also,” replied the actress.

Taking part in a dark and intense story like “Tandoor”, did leave an impact on her mentally, admits Rashami.

“When we were shooting the gunshot scene, I didn’t speak to anybody after that for two days because I kept thinking about her. The mentality becomes very different when you are playing somebody else and you are not like that. It was very disturbing that you love somebody so much and then that someone will shoot you!” she said.

With Rashami venturing into the digital space after gaining popularity on television, any plans of trying luck in Bollywood?

“I will. I had an opportunity before also but I had my commitments. When I am committed to something, I am very much dedicated. I’m not saying no to it, nobody will say no. It depends on the subject and the director,” she said.

Helmed by Nivedita Basu, “Tandoor” streams on Ullu App.

Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez has been named as an accused in the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) supplementary charge sheet filed in the Rs 200 crore money laundering case involving conman Sukesh Chandrashekar, claim sources.

The ED is likely to file a second supplementary prosecution complaint against the actress before the Patiala House Court on Wednesday.

Jacqueline and Nora Fatehi, also a Bollywood actress, have already recorded their statement as witness in the case.

Earlier, fixed deposits worth Rs 7.2 crore belonging to Jacqueline were attached by the ED.

The probe agency termed these gifts and properties as proceeds of crime received by the actress.

In February, the ED had filed its first supplementary prosecution complaint against Pinky Irani, an alleged aide to Chandrashekhar who introduced him to the actresses.

It was alleged in the charge sheet that Pinky used to choose costly gifts for Jacqueline and later used to drop it at her house after the payments were made by Chandrashekhar.

In December last year, the ED had filed the first charge sheet in this matter before the court of Additional Sessions Judge Praveen Singh.

Chandrashekhar has allegedly spent around 20 crore on different models and Bollywood celebs. A few had refused to take gifts from him.

According to an excerpt from the charge sheet, Jacqueline says she did receive expensive gifts from Sukesh and that he had also purchased a horse “Espuela”.

The actress further claimed that he had bought a luxury car for her but she returned it
