Uttaran set for a time leap tonight, Tina Dutta will be seen in a double role
Bina Trivedi (BOMBAY TIMES; March 26, 2012)
It isn’t often that a TV actor plays a double role. Tina Dutta (Uttaran’s Ichcha), has got that chance, now that the show is taking an 18-year time leap.
So while the actress will continue to portray a subdued Ichcha, she will also play her 18-year-old chirpy daughter, Meethi, after the leap on March 26.
Tina is naturally excited. “I have been playing Ichcha for the past three years. Today, this role is an extension of me. But now I will also play my own daughter and that’s going to be fun. With the leap, I get to experiment with my look and build on my acting skills,” she says.
Meethi is a typical college-going girl, zesty and full of life. “She wears colourful clothes. She has been raised by her grandmother Ammo and adopted brother Kanha. Ichcha will be released from prison and will make an attempt to start her life afresh. I am really hoping that audiences will like Meethi as much as they like Ichcha,” she says.
Tina will be joined by Sreejita De, who will play Mukta (Tapasya’s daughter). Incidentally, Sreejita was almost finalised to play Ichcha when the show took off, but things didn’t work out in the end. Sreejita is happy to come on board finally.
Even as the new characters make their way in, oldtimers Jogi Thakur, Ammo and Nani will continue their innings on the popular show.
