After a long gap of 10 years, Manasi Joshi Roy, sister of Bollywood actor Sharman Joshi, is ready for her second innings in the television industry.
The TV actress, who is married to Rohit Roy with a cute daughter Kiara, was last seen on celebrity dancing reality show “Nach Baliye” alongside hubby.
Now, she has set her heart and mind on TV again and is making her BIG comeback with “Dhai Kilo Prem”, which will be from April on Star Plus channel. The show is produced by Ekta Kapoor under her banner Balaji TeleFilms.
The new TV serial tells the story about an overweight boy and girl who fall in love and what happens to them.
Manasi plays the boy’s protective mother, who “apart from sharing a lovely relationship with the girl, has a little graph of her own.
It’s not a conventional saas-bahu soap, but slice-of-life,” says Manasi, who thrives on playing realistic characters.
Speaking on her long disappearance from TV, Manasi said that she couldn’t find anything interesting after “Kkusum”.
“Sandeep Sickand, who is producing Dhai Kilo Prem with Ekta, said this role was written with me in mind. He was adamant that I take it up”, the actress said.
The actress, who has been on an acting sabbatical to care for her daughter, had put on weight, but is now shedding the kilos.
She has already lost five kilos and intends to lose more, she said.
