After playing a docile mother in Sapne Suhane, Vaishnavi Macdonald, is back as a feisty Punjabi woman Leela Taneja on Tashan-e-Ishq. The charming lady is happy to be part of the show.
She shared, "I am enjoying my stint on Tashan-e-Ishq. After playing motherly roles, it's good to portray the role of Leela as it's very different. Actors are very selfish and when the role of Leela was narrated to me, I couldn't say no. She is larger than life and loud, but at the same time, her values are very real," added Vaishnavi.
When we prodded her further about the similarity between her onscreen and off-screen avatar, she said, "We both are very different. I am quite forgiving, while Leena is full of tashan."
We also asked her about the newbie cast…"Do they look new? They are one step ahead of us. These days, kids come fully prepared. They learn and pick up very fast and are well groomed. Especially, Jasmine. She is a power house," she said.
Talking about her current favorite soaps, she said, "I like Ek Tha Raja Ek Thi Rani and Ashoka."
We also asked her about the kind of shows she wishes to do in future. The gorgeous actress replied, "I want to try historical and mythological shows as I think it will suit me well."
She continued, "I will never play an out and out negative woman on screen, who smokes, drinks and abuses. I have always set good values to my daughter and I want to project the same on the screen as well."
Very well said, Vaishnavi! Wish you a shining future ahead!
