Actress Shefali Jariwala started her career by appearing in song videos in the early 2000s. She is still famous for typical remix song videos like ‘Kata Laga’. The actress in a recent interaction said that filmmakers now are now seeing her new light. She said that she is now noticed for her acting skills and not just her looks.
Shefali who is also a fitness enthusiast has stressed the fact that directors and filmmakers are also looking for the right approach and not just the outer appearance. She said that in the current scenario she is getting to play different kinds of roles. These roles are not focused on attractiveness and glamour.
“Now, I don’t know how it has changed, but it has changed so beautifully. Filmmakers have started seeing me in a new light, they are seeing more in my eyes now, rather than my body. The kind of characters that are coming to me are different,” the actor said.
Shefali said the reason for such a drastic change in her career is the introduction of OTT space. The actress said that the Web has been the cause of her success.” I am shooting every month now. Every character I am playing is very beautiful, stories are very substantial and I am happy to contribute to such scripts,” the actor said in a very excited manner.
Shefali is currently working on a series titled Ratri Ke Yatri along with her other OTT projects. In the series, she will be seen in a de-glam role. The 38-year-old actor revealed that she is in a very good space, as she got to start shooting after almost one and a half years.
“I find a lot of peace when I am working. It has been one-and-half years since I stepped foot on a set, and I finally broke that and started shooting. I am very happy that I could be part of such a wonderful show like Ratri Ke Yatri. It was an emotional experience portraying the character of a prostitute, and understanding their plight. At the end of the day, they are women and they have emotions and dreams,” she said.
