Sony’s most loved show, Bade Achhe Lagte Hain 2 recently hit the milestone of 100 episodes. The show has beautifully managed to keep the audience’s excitement at par with an engaging storyline and excellent performances by the leading actors. But an Indian daily soap is incomplete without villains, twists and drama. And actress Reena Aggarwal brings these elements in the show.
Actor Reena Aggarwal essays the pivotal role of Ram’s ex flame, Vedika in the show. She recently opened up about playing a negative character in the show. While many actors don’t like playing a baddie on-screen, Reena, on the other hand, finds it interesting.
Talking about if she enjoys playing negative characters, Reena Aggarwal said, “I really enjoy portraying Vedika’s character. She is a negative character and it gets tricky at times.To be honest I’m happy to be playing this character and yes it’s interesting but…. I’m also anxious as this is my first ever negative role and it comes with a lot of challenges! But I really don’t wanna be seen as a negative face.. if I put it clearly I really don’t want people to forget about my capacity to play variety of roles as an actor! I know my bandwidth and I would still love to keep experimenting with all kinds of roles and not just a vamp on tv! I hate it when people can’t see beyond the ordinary! While, some actors might get bothered from the dislike that ardent fans throw at us but I honestly feel that if we are able to evoke these emotions from our viewers, it means we are doing something right.”
“Having said that, I also believe that the audience today has really evolved, they can differentiate between reel and real, so it’s a great time to play an antagonist on Indian Television today. Going forward however, I would want to pursue a variety of characters as I believe, as an actor and performer, I have a range of emotions that I can put to use – be it a positive role or a negative one,” she further added.
Bade Achhe Lagte Hain 2 features Nakuul Mehta and Disha Parmar in the leading roles.
Reena made her television debut with the Disney Channel India show Kya Mast Hai Life in 2009. In 2012, she made her Bollywood debut with Aamir Khan’s film ‘Talaash’.
