The show Kundali Bhagya has been a favorite with the audience because of its relatable characters like Karan aka Dheeraj Dhoopar and Preeta aka Shraddha Arya and their intriguing plot. The characters are also known as #PreeRan and have managed to capture everyone’s hearts with their chemistry and heart-warming love story. One of the characters of this popular show Mansi Srivastava who has made a recent entry into the show plays a character called Sonakshi. Her entry has increased the drama quotient in the show and also some interesting twists. While Mansi entertains the viewers and becomes popular, the actress is highly inspired to play this character by the adorable Kajol.
Speaking about how she prepped for Sonakshi’s role, Mansi revealed that her character resembles Anjali, played by Kajol in the film Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. The film starred Shah Rukh Khan and Rani Mukherjee in lead roles along with Kajol. Kajol’s look in the film was that of a tomboy. She dons short hair and wears a hairband. Mansi says that she was briefed about the character by the creative head of the show, and that’s when she realized that the character was similar to the one Kajol played in Karan Johar’s Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. Just like Kajol‘s character Anjali is more of a tomboy in the film, Mansi’s character Sonakshi is also a tomboy.
Since the characters were so similar, Mansi took inspiration from Kajol’s role in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and watched the film again. Mansi adds that she is a lot like her character in the show; she too loves making friends and is full of life.
Kajol has not only inspired Mansi but recently a Pakistani actress named Ayeza Khan too was inspired by Kajol’s tomboy look in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. As far as Kajol’s film career goes, she has played some exciting and memorable characters.
