Though the show ‘Kasturi’ (Star Plus) has actor Shubhangi Atre playing a girl in love, in actuality she is much married and a mother of a two-year-old daughter named Ashi.
Shubhangi, who is playing the title role of ‘Kasturi’, often resents the fact of not being able to spend enough time with Ashi.
Moreover, workload and deadline pressures, at times, force the actor to stay back on the sets. Shubhangi obviously misses her daughter and husband (Piyush Poorey) then.
However, a supportive Piyush gets their baby along on the sets and that’s when the family enjoys quality time together.
Shubhangi says, “Ever since I started shooting for ‘Kasturi’, I’ve been busy. These days, we are shooting a crucial track. Being the lead, I am there in almost all frames. And on days when there are telecast issues and deadlines to be met, I have stayed back on the sets. During such occasions, I ask Piyush to bring Ashi on the sets.”
Shubhangi however does not believe in complaining. “One has to be mentally prepared. Everyone struggles in their respective fields. I chose this profession and it’s my show. Of course, there is the frustration of not being able to go home but the production house makes things very comfortable for us. So I can’t complain.” She ends on a positive note,
“Of course, I miss seeing my baby grow. But we all have to make compromises if we have to succeed in life. My baby too is making them. But my husband’s support helps me pull through the situation.”
