Anita Hassanandani, currently seen in the silent comedy Gutar Gu is all set to be part of the opening episode of Bindass’ new show Yeh Hai Aashiqui. Hosted by Vikrant Massey, it’s a fictional show based on real and unconventional love stories.
Anita’s is an older woman-younger man love story. She plays Priyanka married to an army officer staying in Dehradun. When a young photographer Tushar meets her he is instantly attracted to her. He discovers her husband is a wife-beater and persuades her to spend more time with him.
Eventually the two fall in love with each other. Besides the romantic story, what appealed to Anita about her character was that she is a classical dancer. Says Anita, “I am not a trained dancer so it was a challenge for me.
I found some of the steps difficult but since the shoot was cut-to-cut, couldn’t rehearse much. I hope the sequences have turned out well.” Anita who has done several serials and films, is now doing only one-off episodes in mini-series like Teri Meri Love Stories and Ek Thi Naayka, beside her weekly show Gutar Gu.
“I love daily soaps and have garnered most of the popularity from my characters in them, but right now, I am planning my wedding in October so will look at daily soaps post that. I want to enjoy both my professional and personal space,” explains the actress.
