Iravati Harshe in Sanjivani: Three-shift star
Iravati Harshe in Sanjivani: Three-shift star

SHES been an enigma on television. Whether playing Dr Smriti Malhotra in Sanjivani or Rukhsana in Tanha, Iravati Harshe has gone so much into the role that it is difficult to tell whether shes acting or just playing real life.

And with the amount of roles shes doing she can be forgiven if she starts talking like one of the many characters she is playing. Thats how much shes into her roles. Which explains why Iravati is right on top of the star ratings doing three shifts a day.

But the lady is quick to remind you that she may be into many projects but she doesnt blindly rush into all the serials she is offered. "There are checks and balances. The script is top priority and then the actors and director Id be working with," she says.

Which is why shes had a fair share of hits in the last few years. Whether it was Shanti, Mrityudand, Tanha, Warris, Chhota Muh Badi Baat and Kabhi Kabhi or films like Hey Ram and Split Wide Open, Iravati has given it all to her character.

Apart from Sanjivani she is currently doing Zindagi Teri Meri Kahani on Sahara and Achanak-37 Saal Baad on Sony. "There are many more in the pipeline," she tells you with a smile. And why not? Its not always you find stars who dont go hysterical about their success.
