Sony Entertainment Television’s Jagannath Aur Purvi Ki ‘Dosti Anokhi’ has been garnering a lot of love from the audience. The show is based on the innocent friendship between an elderly man Jagannath Mishra and Purvi who is a young vibrant girl.
The current track of the show focuses on Jagannath caring for Purvi like his own daughter. Jagannath tries to keep Purvi happy and encourages her to move on in life towards a bright future. Amidst all this, Jagannath’s daughter, Deepa has returned home for reasons unknown. Actress Chitra Banerjee is essaying the role of Chitra Banerjee.
Deepa is Jagannath’s only daughter and hence received a lot of love from his father. Their relationship turned sour after Deepa decided to elope and get married. Now, she’s returned home as a single mother.
During an interview, Chitra talked about her character and shared, “Deepa is a headstrong character and a single mother raising her daughter alone. She defied her parents by marrying the man she wanted and is now feeling guilty about her actions as it impacted her relationship with her parents. My character will have various layers that will reveal themselves as the show progresses. I am elated to be a part of a show like Jagannath Aur Purvi Ki Dosti Anokhi and more so happy to be back on Sony TV as it brings back a sense of nostalgia. What made me say yes to my role was the way Deepa’s character was written and the endearing story really resonated with me.”
She further added, “I am really happy to be sharing the screen with veteran actors like Rajendra ji and Sushmita ji, two people I have adored as an actor myself. I have got to learn so much just by observing them as it has helped me understand the nuances of acting. I hope to absorb from them as much as I can because they are just brilliant at what they do! I also want to impress the audience with my character Deepa and I hope the viewers love Deepa as much as I did when I first heard the story.”
