Gautami Kapoor is known by many names. She made a spash on television as Gautami Ghatke, when she signed on Ekta Kapoor's Ghar Ek Mandir, and is also known as the Bindhaast girl, after her hit Marathi film.
The actress, who plays Tulsi in Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, chatted with Rediff readers about her hit show, her husband Ram Kapoor and more. For those who missed the chat, here's the transcript:
Gautami Kapoor says, Hi there! This is Gautami and I'm ready to take your questions!
VIRGIL asked, Hi Gautami - what is the secret of your calm poise and personality in the serial?
Gautami Kapoor answers, What I appear in television is really unlike what I am in real life. In real life, I'm very hyper and energetic. In fact, my husband says I'm scatterbrained. The poise and the calmness you see, so when Ram saw me on TV, he said, "God I wish you could be like this in real life."
soumitro asked, Is it very challenging to play a role which has been so pouplar with the old tulsi?Are you wary of comparisons?
Gautami Kapoor answers, Yes, it was very challenging. Not only is the role really popular, by someone who has done it for seven years, it's also very unlike who I am. So it's a great challenge, but that's what an actor always looks for.
Omendra asked, What you'll feel if some one else will play the role of tulsi in near future??
Gautami Kapoor answers, A change in any show is always welcome. So I wouldn't have a problem with it. :)
lavanya asked, Hi gautami, I just want to ask you, whether u r going to change ur look in kyunki?
Gautami Kapoor answers, Right now, there is no talk about changing my look. But when it happens, I think all you guys will definitely know.
