Actress Aanchal Goswami is playing the character of ‘Diya’ in ‘Rishton Ka Manjha’. At a wedding sequence, Aanchal appears in the avatar of a chic Bengali bride, which she says was her “dream”.
The actress wore a red colored Banarasi sari with golden details and embroidery on it, which matched the gold jewelery worn by her. In fact, the actress also revealed how Bipasha Basu was one of the biggest inspirations behind the look.
Aanchal Goswami Said, “I love Bengali culture and I got really excited when I got to know that I have to shoot a wedding scene in ‘Rishton Ka Manjha’. More than the wedding sequence, I dressed up as a Bengali bride. I was always fond of wearing Banarasi sarees with beautiful, traditional Bengali alta (red dye on hands or feet during wedding and cultural festivals) with ‘mehndi’ on my hands.
Aanchal Goswami added, “I must mention that I have always loved the way Bengalis dress up during their weddings. In fact, I was very inspired by their wedding looks. Bipasa Basu, that I always wished I could see my real wedding (laughs).
The ongoing sequence is about the wedding of Arjun (Krishal Ahuja) and Diya (Aanchal Goswami).
She adds, “I was amazed by the entire Bengali bridal avatar, from the bold red ‘bindi’ to the gorgeous ‘kajal’ eyes, I loved just about everything about my look. While shooting for this wedding sequence, I felt like this is my real wedding as we performed many different rituals in different get-ups. I even added my own rings to the jewelery to make Diya’s character look some part of Aanchal.”
While Aanchal shares her experience of being a Bengali bride, the dramatic changes in the life of ‘Arjun’ and ‘Diya’ will haunt her during the upcoming episodes of the show.
‘Rishton Ka Manjha’ airs on Zee TV.
