Actor Moon Banerjee who has entered Star Bharat’s Musakaan produced by Rashmi Sharma Productions in the role of the male protagonist’s mother feels that she has always been lucky to get meaty roles on TV.
After taking a self-imposed break for about 10 months, Moon is now back to entertain her fan base. “After Kuch Rang Pyaar Ke Aise Bhi, I was out of action and wanted a break from work. So it is nice to be back. It is a different kind of a role where I play a very pati-vrata woman. For a change, I play the male protagonist’s mother here. It is quite relatable as I have a son in real life. So far so good!!”
“The lady is the protagonist’s mother and the antagonist’s wife. She is the one who is the mediator between the two. Her character is nicely woven in the story. In terms of bagging meaty roles, I don’t pay much attention to it. But luckily and fortunately, all my roles have turned out to be meaty (smiles). I am rest assured about that,” she adds.
Working with Ssharad Malhotra and Sudesh Berry is a great experience for Moon. “Ssharad too hails from Kolkata and we have our casual banters in Bengali whenever we are free. That way we are comfortable with each other. Sudeshji is quite senior; the give and take is very nice.”
Moon is working with Rashmi Sharma for the first time. “I wanted to work with this production house as I had not worked earlier. The TRP has gone high; so there is a good feeling in the camp. The concept of the show is different and is a good watch.”
“The revelation about her white-collared husband actually being quite negative will be a big highpoint. It will be interesting to see how the wife behaves and react when she would get to know of it. As of now, the story revolves around the good camaraderie between the mother-in-law and daughter-in-law (Yesha Rughani). Also there are cute moments between the son and mother. He is actually a mama’s boy and the chemistry between them is exciting. Viewers have loved this and have been giving us good response. So I aim to set another benchmark with this mother role.”
Way to go, Moon!!
