The trailer of SonyLIV’s upcoming original, Dr. Arora- Gupt Rog Visheshagya, has opened to a thunderous response from the audiences. Releasing on 22nd July, the show promises an interesting medley of characters, each with their own idiosyncrasies, and stepping into the shoes of one of them is Sandeepa Dhar.
Sandeepa plays the role of Mithila Kumari Tomar aka Mithu, the fiercely confident and independent wife of Morena’s SP, Tej Pratap Singh Tomar (Ajitesh Gupta). The actress could relate to a shared sense of womanhood and qualities of being outspoken and persistent in her character, however, there were many dissimilarities that made the character more challenging for her. Sharing her experience Sandeepa said, “While there was a lot of me that I could see in Mithu, there was also a lot of me that I would have to change for Mithu. We’re similar yet very different. She is unabashed and uncompromisingly forthright in her demeanor, whereas I am shy and introverted, always wary of my surroundings and thinking twice before speaking.”
Adding further, she said, “There is a sense of dichotomy to Mithu which drew me towards the role. She is soft yet assertive, and playful yet has a very practical approach towards things. Although she hails from a small town, she has a progressive mindset. She is naïve and grounded yet suffers from a superiority complex. To be able to put across multiple layers to her personality with conviction onscreen was very exciting to me as an actor.”
Created by Imtiaz Ali, the show is directed by Sajid Ali and Archit Kumar. Produced by Mohit Choudhary, the show features Kumud Mishra, Gaurav Parajuli, Vivek Mushran, Ajitesh Gupta, Vidya Malvade, Sandeepa Dhar, and Shekhar Suman in pivotal roles.
