Poonam Dhillion last seen in the reality show Bigg Boss is all set to return to the small-screen with a serial that revolves around a strong-minded, independent woman. Says Poonam, "I found the character very interesting and motivational. It's the kind of role that is rarely seen on television." Ask her if it is based on Sridevi's character in English Vinglish and she avers that the thread of it is inspired from the film, but the detailing and the portrayal are different. "It's about a woman wanting to educate herself in the later years of life. Even my mother finished her graduation and went on to do her Masters after her marriage.
The serial conveys a message that it's never too late to do anything in life. That's what I liked, it's positive and I am a positive person in life too," smiles the actress who had made her TV debut with Andaz and followed it up with Kitty Party. "I have been kind of a pioneer, did TV when people looked down upon filmstars doing TV — today everybody is clamouring to be a host, acted in plays etc. Both my shows were not the saas-bahu kind, in fact Kitty Party was quite ahead of its times ," says Poonam.
Having been a part of Bigg Boss, ask her what she thinks about the current season and Poonam says she is scandalised. "In the season that I participated, except for a couple of them, most of the housemates were calm. Here everybody is on the edge and ready to fight," she observes.
Recently, there were reports about her 21-year-old son Anmol readying for a Bollywood debut, but Poonam says he is too young and can wait for another year-and-a-half before he forays into films.
"He is getting several offers but he is focussed and will do so when the time is right," says the proud mother.
Krystle plays Poonam's bahu
The yet-to-be-titled serial to be aired on Sony is produced by Jay Mehta and it will have Krystle Dsouza playing the daughter-in-law who encourages Poonam's character to study. Avers Jay, "Poonam has worked with me in my film Police Public and when I thought of this role, she was perfect. As for Krystle, she is a good actress and suited the character. Basically, the story is about two women with contrasting personalities, who uplift each other." He added that the serial is based on a play Sharda scritped by Varsha Adalja.
