‘Dhadkan Zindaggi Kii’ fame Additi Gupta has been garnering a lot of love and appreciation for her role as Dr. Deepika in the show. Deepika’s heartfelt journey to achieve her goal of becoming a surgeon has managed to strike a chord with the audience.
In a recent interview with BT, Additi talked about it and shared, “There is something about resilient women that has always attracted me to them. Playing Dr Deepika’s character and showcasing such a powerful and captivating storyline is a blessing for me. I can’t stop thanking and appreciating the writers for sketching such a brilliant character. All my life I have never personally faced gender disparity, neither at home nor in the workplace but donning the role of Dr Deepika, and going through her journey feels like I am standing in front of a very different and difficult world for women.
She adds, “As she faces discrimination, I face it with her in so many ways, I feel that I am merging with my character as I can understand her struggles. She is not only a headstrong and strong-willed woman but also a sensitive woman who gets hurt, who gets stabbed by words in her day-to-day life as a trauma surgeon, all because her gender is noticed before her profession. As I portray Dr Deepika, I represent the millions of women who face this in their real lives and I feel honored that through me, I will be telling the story of their hardships.”
The upcoming episodes of Dhadkan Zindaggi Kii will witness Dr. Deepika’s struggle with making decisions regarding her profession which involves a lot of risks.
