Kenisha Bhardwaj on being part of Kaal Bhairav Rahasya 2: I don’t relate to my character
Actor Kenisha Bhardwaj, who is part of Ravindra Gautam’s Kaal Bhairav Rahasya 2, talks about being part of the show, why she was hesitant initially and how it feels to work with the team.
Kenisha Bhardwaj speaks to Filmy Town:
What do you have to say about the title of the show?
Kenisha Bhardwaj: It is unique. Initially, when I got to know that there is a show called Kaal Bhairav Rahasya 2, I started thinking how it would be. So, I was not at all interested in the show. The time when the first season was going on, I was busy with work so I could not watch it. So, when I got a call for the second season, I had it in my mind that maybe it will be a mythological show and we would have to wear those types of costumes in it. But when I went for the audition, I got to know what it is all about. I found it quite interesting. This show is totally different from other saas-bahu dramas which we normally watch on Indian television. I have played a bahu’s role before in my previous shows. But when I got a call for this one, I felt I will get to do something different.
What are your character details?
Kenisha Bhardwaj: I am playing the role of Vandana, who is a Yuvraani. She is very innocent and naïve. She had no idea that such things also happen. After getting married, she gets to know that such things also exist. She is quite confused as of now if anyone says anything to her, she believes them. She is very positive in the show.
How much you relate to your character?
Kenisha Bhardwaj: I am very spiritual and I believe in energies. So, I think that if there is positivity, there will be negativity as well. There was a time when I used to be very naive but now, I have changed. I am not that kind of girl who would believe in any superstitious ideas. I need logic in each and everything, even if someone comes and tells me that they love me, I might question them as well. So basically, I don’t relate to my character at all.
With whom do you bond the most on set ?
Kenisha Bhardwaj: I bond the most with Revati (Sonia Singh) and with Rajmata, who is essayed by Vineeta Malik ji. I am sharing my makeup room with her. She is so calm and composed, even if anyone comes and tells her that the shoot will get extended by 2 to 3 hours, her reply is ‘Okay’. I mean even at this age, she is so dedicated towards work. Other than her, Sonia is my darling. I bond really well with her. She takes care of me on the set. Ahwaan is also a very close friend of mine. He is like my best friend.
How is it working with producer/ director Ravindra Gautam ?
Kenisha Bhardwaj: When I met him for the first time, I was quite amazed to see that such directors also exist. Ravindra sir’s persona is so positive, his vibe is so strong. Even if we go and give him suggestions or ask him whether we can add something in our scene, he always appreciates it. I have seen directors who ask actors to do what they want us to do, but he is just so different. He considers our ideas and appreciates them. He is the producer of the show but he behaves like a very normal person with us. He is such a genuine person, even his wife is very genuine. You don’t feel like you are working with such a big producer or director because he creates a very positive atmosphere and it actually makes me feel like family. He talks less but whenever he talks, I feel like listening to him.
