Actress

Anjali
Tatrari

instantly
managed
to
bring
a
smile
to
the
face
of
viewers
sitting
at
home
in
the
lockdown
in
2020,
who
were
watching
her
television
show

Mere
Dad
Ki
Dulhan

every
evening.
Her
performance
as
Niya
Sharma,
the
young
daughter
who
is
waiting
to
take
flight
to
achieve
her
dreams
and
at
the
same
time
is
rooted
to
her
home
to
take
care
of
her
impulsive,
widowed
father,
was
much
appreciated.
Her
happy
self
as
Niya,
sometimes
mischievous
and
at
times
vulnerable
but
always
sensitive
to
the
world
around
her,
made
Anjali
Tatrari
the
sweetheart
of
the
nation.

When

FilmiBeat

spoke
to
Anjali
Tatrari
in
an
exclusive
video
chat,
we
realised
she
is
pretty
much
that
person
in
real
life,
too!
Very
likeable
and
comfortable
in
her
skin.
Excerpts
from
a
candid
tête-à-tête
with
Anjali
Tatrari
ahead
of
her
show

Sargam
Ki
Sadhe
Satii,
where
she
also
talks
about
her
journey
to
Mumbai,
her
first
show
Mere
Dad
Ki
Dulhan

and
how
Niya
Sharma
will
always
be
her
favourite
character,
her
beautiful
equation
with
onscreen
dad
Varun
Badola,
and
her
own
father
who
she
feels
is
still
with
her
every
moment.
She
also
is
grateful
for
the
love
and
blessings
she
has
received
from
her
fans.


You
belong
to
Uttarakhand.
Tell
us
about
your
journey
to
Mumbai.

I
am
from
Pithoragarh.
It’s
a
very
beautiful
hill
station
and
till
eighth
standard,
I
studied
there.
Post
that,
due
to
some
personal
reasons,
shifted
to
Bombay…Mumbai
(I
love
calling
it
Bombay,
ya!).
While
studying
in
Mumbai,
I
did
not
really
have
acting
in
my
head.
But
since
I
was
a
child,
I
was
a
little
more
inclined
towards
dancing,
dressing
up,
etc.
Always
fascinated
with
it
but
I
never
really
had
acting
in
mind.
Post
college
I
gave
my
CA
(chartered
accountancy)
entrance
exam
and
realised
that
this
is
not
what
I
am
going
to
do.
This
is
not
making
me
happy.
And
since
I
had
participated
in
skit
competitions
as
a
child,
I
thought
I
wanna
try
out
acting.
So,
I
started
giving
auditions
and
I
realised
that
this
really
makes
me
happy.
The
audition
journey

it
never
felt
like
I
was
struggling
or
the
entire
routine
did
not
feel
like
a
routine.
I
loved
getting
back
again
and
going
for
auditions
even
after
being
rejected!
So,
then
I
obviously
cracked
projects
and
since
then
it’s
going
smooth
and
I’ve
never
been
happier
than
this!


You
were
also
a
fashion
blogger.
How
did
that
come
about?

I
was
in
college
and
I
was
doing
a
part-time
job
to
cover
my
own
expenses.
Since
I
like
fashion
so
much,
I
didn’t
want
those
expenses
to
go
to
my
mom.
So,
I
decided
to
work
part-time
and
was
also
blogging
part-time.


Your
sense
of
style
reflected
in

Mere
Dad
Ki
Dulhan

and
it
was
nice.

Anjali Tatrari in Mere Dad Ki Dulhan

Yeah,
carrying
off
something
which
is
comfortable.
I
don’t
really
follow
the
trend
as
such.
I
mix
and
match
things
as
long
as
I
am
looking
nice.


Tell
us
about

Sargam
Ki
Sadhe
Satii
,
your
new
show.

It’s
a
completely
different
show
from
what
I
have
done
before.
It’s
a
sitcom
(situational
comedy).
So,
the
timing,
the
pace,
all
of
that
is
a
must
and
since
I
haven’t
done
anything
like
this
before,
it’s
quite
challenging.
But
it’s
so
much
fun!
I
think
nothing
will
open
you
up
more
as
an
actor
than
such
a
show
because
of
the
comic
timing
and
the
facial
expressions
needed.
The
show
is
very
well
written
and
I
am
currently
enjoying
doing
it.


So,
it’s
like
‘Sadhe
Satii’ meaning
seven-and-a-half
men,
and
you!
How’re
you
managing
it,
on
the
show
and
in
real-life?

It’s
both
on
and
off
air.
Because
Sadhe
Satii


meri

on-air

bhi

chal
rahi
hai

aur

off-air

bhi
,
set

pe
!
I
am
the
only
female
in
the
show,
so
I
am
the
centre
of
attraction
for
these
guys
(co-actors)
and
their
pranks
on
the
sets.


What
is
the
concept
of

Sargam
Ki
Sadhe
Satii
?

So
the
whole
concept
of
the
show
is
that
in
Sargam’s
life,
everything
is
around
the
time
7:30.
In
the
show,
I
was
born
around
7:30,
I
had
my
school
timings
around
7:30,
and
even
my
wedding
muhurat
was
at
7:30,
and
at
the
wedding,
instead
of
the
usual
saat
pheras,
we
take
sadhe
saat
pheras.
And
then
my
marital
home
happens
to
have

men
in
the
family
and
I
am
the
only
female.
So
the
show
is
about
all
these
hilarious
situations
that
they
go
through
in
a
day
and
yet
stick
together
by
the
end
of
the
day.

Kaafi

relatable

hai

(it’s
very
relatable)
if
you’re
staying
in
a
joint
family,
where
a
lot
of
these
sadhe
sati
moments
happen
and
yet
the
family
is
together.
In
Sargam,
we
have
a
beautiful
message
to
be
given
at
the
end
of
each
episode.
So
far
it’s
good,
whatever
I
have
shot.
It’s
coming
on
February
22
and
I
am
very
excited.

Sargam Ki Sadhe Satii


All
the
best
to
you.
It
seems
like
one
of
those
positive
daily
shows
with
a
message
in
the
end,
a
show
which
the
whole
family
can
sit
together
and
watch.

Yeah.
Post
COVID,
everything
has
become
so
stressful
for
everybody.
And
due
to
the
pandemic,
all
people
hear
about
is
some
news
that
they
don’t
want
to
hear.
So
that’s
the
initiative
we
have
taken
to
make
people
smile.


Let’s
talk
about

Mere
Dad
Ki
Dulhan
.
After
that
show,
you
are
like
the
sweetheart
of
the
nation.
How
does
it
feel
to
be
one?

(Smiling)
Honestly,
I’d
never
imagined
I
would
receive
so
much
love!
Limited,
of
course,
but
an
abundance
of
love
from
my
fan
following.
Those
guys
are
so
sweet.
I
wanted
to
be
an
actor
but
I
had
never
thought
it
would
be
so
beautiful
to
receive
so
much
love
and
blessings
from
people
who
have
never
met
you,
who
don’t
even
know
you
personally.
There
have
been
times
when
I
am
feeling
low
and
then
there’s
this
message
from
someone
or
the
other
that
really
makes
your
day.
It’s
beautiful…the
love
and
people
acknowledging
your
work.
That
way
I
have
been
very
lucky.


Mere
Dad
Ki
Dulhan

was
an
amazing
father-daughter
story.
You
had
said
that
in
real-life
also
Varun
Badola
is
like
a
father
figure
to
you…
Say
something
about
your
equation
with
him.

Varun Badola and Anjali Tatrari in Mere Dad Ki Dulhan

I
actually
never
imagined
that
we
would
get
this
close.
In
fact,
I
remember
the
very
first
day
(of
shoot),
I
told
him,
Aap
bahot

tantrums
throw

kar
rahe
ho
.
I
mean
I
know
you’re
Varun
Badola,
but…(laughs)”.
Though
he
had
not
done
anything
like
that

he
was
very
sweet
right
from
the
day
we
met
for
our
mock
shoot.
But
in
jest
I
told
him,
“You
know
you
were
actually
showing
off
that
you
are
Varun
Badola”.
This
is
how
our
conversation
started.
Imagine!

He
was
so
protective
of
me
and
he
still
is.
He
makes
sure
that
I
am
at
home
on
time,
even
though
we
are
not
shooting
together.
I
still
have
to
drop
him
a
message
saying
I
am
home.
He
keeps
checking
on
me.
He
is
the
one
person
I
know
is
always
there
whenever
I
need
him.
And
he
has
never
pretended
or
faked
that
because,
you
can
fake
it
once
or
twice
but
not
for
the
entire
journey
that
we
were
together
in

Mere
Dad
Ki
Dulhan

or
even
post
that.

Varun Badola and Anjali Tatrari

He
was
the
happiest
to
know
that
I
have
cracked
this
show
(Sargam
Ki
Sadhe
Satii
)
post
MDKD.
He
still
cares
for
me
the
way
he
did.
There
were
no
pretensions
between
us.
We
bonded
gradually
and
bonded
pretty
well.
He
is
a
very
good-hearted
man.
I
have
learnt
so
much
from
him
because
he
is
so
versatile.
He
is
multi-talented

he
is
an
actor,
a
cricketer,
director,
he
sings
so
well…


Do
you
think
this
is
like
a
godsend?
Because,
if
you’re
comfortable
talking
about
it…you
lost
your
father
when
you
were
just
four
years
old.
So
do
you
think
this
is
like
a
very
nice
coincidence
that
you
got

Mere
Dad
Ki
Dulhan

and
then
you
have
someone
like
a
father
figure?
Of
course,
no
one
can
replace
your
father.

That’s
there
but
no
one
will
ever
replace
my
father.
I
still
so
strongly
feel
my
dad’s
presence.
I
feel
that
anything
that
happens
to
me

my
journey’s
been
so
smooth
so
far

and

kabhi
bhi
mera
kaam
jo
jaldi
ho
jata
hai
,
I
feel
it’s
because
of
my
dad.
Before
stepping
out
of
my
house,
I
remember
my
dad.
Before
giving
a
shot,
I
remember
my
dad.
It’s
difficult
to
say…I
was
very
small
and
don’t
have
too
many
memories
of
my
dad.
But
whatever
memories
are
there,
I
strongly
remember
them.
I
don’t
know
how
because
I
was
just
four,
but
I
still
remember
the
time
spent
with
my
father.
But
again,
I
really
respect
Varun
sir
for
whatever
he’s
done
and
keeps
doing.
He’s
not
my
father
but
he’s
my
Dadda
(from
the
show)
for
sure!


That’s
so
sweet.
So
is
there
a
sequel
to

Mere
Dad
Ki
Dulhan
?
Because
the
end
was
left
open
where
you
(Niya)
are
going
to
the
US.
Is
there
a
sequel
to
show
your
love
story?

No.
I
would
love
to
do
a
sequel,
because
I
had
a
great
journey
on
the
show.
It
was
amazing
but
I
think
it
ended
at
the
right
time
because,
quality
over
quantity
for
sure.
There
is
a
scope
for
another
season
but
I
am
not
really
sure
about
this.
The
producer’s
would
know
about
it.
But
I’d
love
to
do
it
(with
a
twinkle
in
her
eye).
Because
I’ve
started
my
journey
with
it
and
I
obviously
have
a
soft
corner
for
it
and
there’ll
always
be.
Niya
is
always
gonna
be
my
favourite
character.
