Yeh Hai Mohabbatein and Naagin 3 actress Pavitra Punia is currently seen as evil fairy, Timnasa, the ruler of Kaal Lok in Sony Sab’s Baalveer Returns. Pavitra tells us how it’s been to be a part of the show that made her a household name
What made you opt for a fantasy show like Baalveer Returns?
The character which hooked me to the story was Timnasa and I was overjoyed when I got the opportunity to portray her.
How is Timnasa different from your other characters?
Portraying an antagonist is challenging. But with Timnasa, as much as the viewers will hate Timnasa’s guts, they will still end up enjoying the character.
Tell us about your look. How was it designed?
I have to wear an elaborate costume. The costume alone weighs around 25 kg. I was thrilled to explore this side of the character.
Is it challenging to play a negative role?
Being Timnasa is a challenge in itself as performing intense action sequences is very difficult. The emotions expressed by the character are loud and getting into her shoes and delivering the right emotions brings out the performer in me.
How is your experience on the sets?
The experience has been beautiful. I came across some great artists while working with Baalveer Returns. I look forward to create some memories with all my co-stars.
You are a seasoned actor. How has the journey been so far?
Good. I am still learning every day and always stress on rehearsals before the shoot.
What is your life philosophy?
Be the way you are. Just believe in yourself, be determined towards your goal and definitely you will get success in life.
