Actor Dolphin Dwivedi who essays the role of Aparna Dhanrajgir, the supportive mother of Ahaan Dhanrajgir (Ritvik Arora) in Colors’ Tu Aashiqui (Guroudev Bhalla Productions) has worked her way out of the various tests of times to carve a niche for herself as an actor!!
Dolphin started her acting career at the age of five and has learnt the art of acting through sheer hard work!! Her acting journey as a kid was plagued by various health ailments which came in as hurdles. But Dolphin’s will power and eagerness made her learn music and dance to keep herself fit in health.
Dolphin who got married at the age of 18 has a daughter. Her inspiration in life is her kid and for Dolphin, nothing is as important in life as her daughter.
A noted name in Bhojpuri movies and TV shows of Mahua, Dolphin went on to become the face of Savdhan India series. Says Dolphin, “Savdhan India brought a huge twist in my life. It was a do-or-die situation as I wanted to move from the regional circuit and get into the Hindi TV circuit. However, I went on to be the favourite of all the production houses making episodics for Savdhan India. The channel had a format of not repeating an actor for at least three months. However, I got called by one and all, and the end result was that I went on to be part of 14 stories in a time span of one year. Later, I bagged the Life OK show, Kaisa Yeh Ishq Hai Gajab Sa Risk Hai as the negative parallel lead. I also went on to do Crime Patrol episodes and the stories I got were amazing. In this episodic journey, I ended up exploring myself more and got to play varied characters.”
Dolphin’s streak of luck started when she was selected for the major role of Aabha in Colors’ Udann. “I felt good when I was told that I got selected after they saw me in Savdhan India. And to play the role of Aabha has been a big turning point in my life. This was my first project with Colors and I was very excited. The character was so much liked that my cameo role stayed on for 2 years. The joy of being considered among the celebrities was indeed huge for me. Now to see that this role in Tu Aashiqui is my third with Colors (after Udann and Devanshi), makes me happy.”
Dolphin quit Udann just before the generation leap as she did not want to play mother to a grown-up. However, when she was offered the role of Aparna in Tu Aashiqui where she is mother to more than one grown-up, she readily took it. “Yes, after quitting Udann as I did not want grow old, I was surprised when I was offered this role. However, the makers convinced me and told me that I had the talent in me to portray the role and that is what they see. Their confidence inspired me to take it up. And today, I am happy to have taken it.”
Talking about her role in Tu Aashiqui, Dolphin avers, “I am enjoying playing the role. Aparna’s character is strong as she is the only one who visualizes the negativity in Jayant Dhanrajgir (JD). My scenes with my son Ahaan (Ritvik Arora) are coming out well, I will have a very good bonding with Pankti (Jannat Zubair Rahmani) as the story goes on. You can say that I am presently in the happy phase of my career.”
Wish you good health, success and happiness, Dolphin!!
