Guess who called her mother and friends from her hometown Nagpur to attend her on screen wedding?? It’s none other than Mitali Nag, the lead protagonist, Krishna of Zee TV’s Afsar Bitiya. Krishna is getting married to Pintu Singh, essayed by heartthrob Kinshuk Mahajan, in the show. While shooting the wedding scenes, the production unit realized that there was no need for the unit to gather an army of junior artists for the Baraat sequence as the bride, Krishna had already done the needful. Producer Rakesh Paswan was all smiles and personally welcomed her mom and friends.
About her first onscreen wedding, quips a cherubic Mitali, “I love attending weddings and love all the small rituals attached to the ceremony. Thanks to my profession, fortunately I can have a mock wedding before taking the plunge in real life. I told Rakesh ji that I want the wedding to be as real as possible. I asked for real turmeric paste to be applied during the Haldi ceremony and waited for four hours after my pack-up to get my Mehendi done. No shaadi is complete without your friends and family and hence I decided to call my Mom and my close friends from Nagpur and Bombay for the shoot to add to the authenticity of the feeling. Like every other Indian mom, my mother also keeps talking about my wedding all the time. I called her over so that she stops nagging me for my real wedding for some time now! The ceremonies associated with the big fat Indian wedding are quite elaborate and if patience is a virtue then after going through the rigmarole… I have mastered that art.”
Talk about getting into the skin if the character! Mitali has taken it to an altogether different level.
