Essaying the pivotal character of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar’s mother, Bhima Bai will be the popular Marathi actress Neha Joshi.

Marking her debut on Hindi television, Neha is also set to explore a first with a challenging character at hand. Quite unlike her previous work, the actress will be seen playing the character of a young mother for the very first time. As challenging it might sound, Neha is quite intrigued by the newness this character is set to bring. “Every big or small role comes with its own challenges. But playing a character that already holds a reference and is known to many people is what takes the difficulty to another level. The real challenge lies in the justice that you can bring to such characters. The character is like a responsibility which I intend to give my best foot to” says Neha.

On her decision of exploring this new role, Neha says, “Essaying a mother’s character to such big personality is nothing less than an amazing opportunity. It’s the main reason that sealed my decision. I have always been experimental at heart and never felt the typecast pressure on me. Portraying a mother’s role at this stage makes no difference. Moreover, I feel the challenges of this role give me a chance to explore my own talents. I am pretty sure playing Bhima Bai will inspire a lot of mothers to take care of a child in a way that they set out to become an example for all.”
