For her role in the upcoming streaming series ‘Faadu – A Love Story’, actress Saiyami Kher went back to her Maharashtrian roots to draw inspiration for her role of Manjiri, a Marathi girl in the series.
Saiyami is the granddaughter of famous veteran actress Usha Kiran, who belongs to a Marathi speaking family.
Directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, ‘Faadu – A Love Story’ is about the challenges and complications of modern life.
Talking about the same, Saiyami Kher said: “I remember Ashwini ma’am (Ashwini Iyer Tiwari, director) watched my auditions, our first meeting was on Zoom when I was sitting in my field. Ashwini mam said who is this actually Manjari. I see that in you. My character in ‘Faadu’ is someone who has grown up in the lap of nature, finds poetry in everything. It’s pretty close to who I am in real life. I am playing the character of a Maharashtrian and since Marathi is my mother tongue, it was not that difficult to add my own flavor to the character.
Saiyami Kher expressed her gratitude to the director for giving her the opportunity to play such a character, which she considers one of her “favourites”.
“I am really thankful to Ashwini ma’am as she believed in me from the very beginning and supported me on this. He has given me one of my favorite charters. I am very happy that I got a chance to work with Pavail. I loved him in ‘Thappad’. And working with him made my life easier as he is a giving co-star. ‘Faadu’ has taught me a lot. This is one of my most special projects till date,” said Saiyami Kher.
Written by Saumya Joshi, this web-series also stars Pavail Gulati and will soon stream on Sony LIV on 9th December.
