Ekavali Khanna speaks on playing Kareena’s mother in Veere Di Wedding, prefers “artistic rewards over things like age gap”

Remember Paromita Puri, who played Kareena Kapoori's stepmother in Veere Di Wedding? The beautiful lady who stole the scenes with her perfect portrayal of a socialite wife and a distinctive character laugh? Yes, we are talking about the incredibly gifted and multifaceted actress Ekavali Khanna. She has pushed the envelope of acting and recently on Jay Ho ! The Jay Kumar Show, Ekavali shared her thought process behind acting, her role selection, and how things as being known for playing roles older than her age unfazed her. 

Addressing the topic head on in her warm and candid manner, Ekavali said,” I am not opposed to the idea of playing somebody younger provided I look the part, and provide a good meaty role. Even if the role is not a long role, it has to have some substance, it has to have some impact”. Speaking on her role as Kalindi Puri’s stepmother in Veere di Wedding, she explained how the character was fun and quirky to play. Speaking on the well developed character, she said that there was a proper backstory, her social climbing, and her relationship with Kareena’s father in the movie. Of note was the character's peculiar laugh typical to such circles and Ekavali mentioned how the director’s brief was short and brief in how it conveyed the visual portrayal of the character, “Here is a woman who comes very sophisticated today. She knows how to use everything, she knows her wines, her cheese, well-dressed, everything is great, She goes to the club everyday.” And of course, she nailed it perfectly as we all saw. 

Continuing on her performance style, Ekavali mentioned how important it is for an actor for constantly reinvent themselves for herself and for the audience. In the process, she likes surprising her audience and make them see a different dimension through her portrayal. She played Sanjay Mishra’s wife in Angrezi Me Kehte Hai with the same criteria of a good script, good role, and the artistic reward of working with an actor like Sanjay Mishra. In yet another movie, she played the role of a housewife and then in another, the role of a boss seducing her colleagues. “The idea is to be a good dependable actor who can also transform and I would say that I have been lucky and life has given me a chance to do different kinds of roles. Dear Dad, Bioscopewala, What will people say, Veere Di Wedding, in all these movies, I have different characters. “ 

And indeed, audiences are lucky to see and enjoy Ekavali Khanna’s talent and craft on the big screen. We will keep you posted on more news and updates on Ekavali Khanna’s interview only on Jay Ho ! The Jay Kumar Show.
