Rupal Patel, who became household name with her character Kokila Modi in Saath Nibhana Sathiya, says she is happy with the way she was able to depict her new character Mithila in Tera Mera Saath Rahe.
Rupal says, “My character is a significant and powerful presence in the show. I am sure people are going to love her.”
Although many know Rupal as Kokila, the actor talks about how Mithila will be different from Kokila, she says, “The character is going to be strong. Kokila used to be very strict and had a strong say in everything. Mithila, on the other hand, is emotional and funny. If she is in a light mood, she laughs. Kokila laughs very rarely. They are very different characters.”
“Somewhere, I relate with her because in real life I am also a straightforward and righteous person. For me, what is right is right and what is wrong is wrong. That’s the similarity between Mithila and me.”
Talking about how she prepared for the character, Rupal says, “As an artiste you definitely have to put in your 100 per cent effort and focus into the role. I always read the screenplay and scenes. I also discuss the scenes and internally prepare myself for the situation and scene that I am going to perform. So, there is a lot of hard work that I have put into a character and I hope the audience will love Mithila.”
