Mansi Srivastava on her role in Kundali Bhagya: Kajol became my inspiration for this character

Kundali Bhagya has been an absolute TRP topper and has been in the news ever since it first went on-air. The show features Dheeraj Dhoopar and Shraddha Arya in the lead roles. The show narrates the story of Karan and Preeta and fans have cherished their chemistry for the past couple of years. Mansi Srivastava is the latest entry to the show and plays the role of Sonkashi, so as to bring the drama quotient up. While Mansi continues to entertain the viewers, the actress recently opened up about the real inspiration behind her popular Kundali Bhagya character.

While speaking about how she prepped for Sonakshi’s role, Mansi mentioned that her character shares a close resemblance to Anjali from the film Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and that’s how she began seeking inspiration from Kajol’s performance in the movie. Revealing more, Mansi mentioned, “Initially, I was briefed about the character by the creative head of the show – Mukta Ma’am and she is someone who knows exactly what she wants from a character. After getting a brief about the role, I realised that it’s a character very similar to Kajol’s character of Anjali from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. Sonakshi’s tomboy nature and personality is just like Anjali, when she was in college with Rahul. She was a tomboy in the beginning, but now she dresses in a very feminine way, which I thought is very cute. Immediately after noticing the resemblance, Kajol became my inspiration for this character and even though I have seen Kuch Kuch Hota Hai several times, I decided to see the movie once again, but this time from an artist’s point of view. I realised then that this character is very real to me and is almost a part of me, who loves making friends and is very bubbly in nature.”

Well, it looks like Kajol has helped Mansi for her part in Kundali Bhagya, but her character, Sonakshi, is having a hard time gaining the Luthra family’s trust after the recent revelations in the show. While she has returned to the house again, will she find a friend in Karan and Preeta again?
