Alisha Pawar is a common name in the television industry. She was last seen in Teri Meri Ikk Jindri and was not seen on TV since past one year. Although she was not resting as she was busy with work in short films and music videos.
Alisha is now stepping back in the tinsel town and will soon be seen essaying the negative lead in Kumkum Bhagya post the six-year leap. Talking about the same to Etimes, she says, “I have played positive roles, but I feel people have connected with my negative roles more. I played Tara in Ishq Mein Marjawan and people have been offering me negative roles after that. I will play a negative role in Kumkum Bhagya too. I am an obsessive lover, who falls in love with the main lead (Krishna Kaul) and creates trouble in his life.”
Earlier, Tina Phillip was the main negative lead in Kumkum Bhagya but the makers are changing the narrative post the leap. Alisha says, “It is true that before the leap it was Tina who played a character madly in love with the main lead and now it will be my character after the leap. But my character is 10 times more vicious than Tina’s and I am just glad that I am getting to work in a popular show like Kumkum Bhagya. The production house had earlier approached me for Nagin, but I could not do the show due to date issues.”
Alisha does not worry about getting typecast in negative roles. She says, “It is true that earlier people used to slot if you did similar roles, but not anymore. I also acted in Meri Gudiya, where I played a positive role. In Ishq Main Marjawan, I played both positive and negative, so I don’t think I will get slotted. It is fun to play diverse roles and I am enjoying this phase in showbiz.
