Meanwhile, Raveena Tandon has gone on the record to say that it was a challenge to essay a grey character in Karmma Calling, a show that she couldn’t take up 10 years ago, “The character of Indrani Kothari is very different from the kind of a person that I’m in real life. For instance, I had to make sure that I didn’t bring in my own thoughts, sympathy, while playing this character, I had to become someone else,” the actor said at the show’s trailer launch event on Tuesday. The 49-year-old actor, known for movies like Andaz Apna Apna, Mohra, Maatr, Satta, and Daman, said it has been her endeavour to take on different characters,” she shared.

“For instance, people have seen me in different avatars in KGF 2′ and Aranyak’, but this (grey) avatar (in Karmaa Calling’) is something I’ve never played, be it in films or on OTT. So, it was challenging for me,” she added. The upcoming thriller series is Tandon’s second outing in the digital space after the 2021 Netflix show Aranyak.

Tandon said she has portrayed the character of Indrani Kothari with utmost honesty. “It was a bit difficult to play Indrani Kothari, and you will realise once you see the show. The character gets revealed every episode, and you will wonder whether she is good or bad, so maintaining that balance is difficult. It is important for us to perform honestly because only then it will strike a chord with the audience,” she said.

Karmma Calling is adapted and directed by Ruchi Narain of Guilty fame, for Disney+ Hotstar. Tandon said the show was offered to her a decade ago by Narain but had to decline it due to personal reasons.

“Personally, I’m a spiritual person. This show was literally planned ten years ago when Ruchi ji came to my office and we had talked about this show, it was for Star and she needed a lot of dates. “At that time, my son, Ranbir was barely three-four months old so I had said no to her. So, it was karma that we all are here with the show ten years later,” the actor said.

Narain, also known for writing the cult classic movie “Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi”, said believed “everything has its time”. “It feels like karma has finally come calling. It’s been a long journey. Everything has its time. The way the world, the country has changed, like we have always had amazing talent like Raveena at that time,” she said.

“I actually always wanted to make the show with Raveena and ten years later we have even a wonderful cast with Namrata (Sheth), Varun (Sood) and so many of the actors, who you will get to see as the show reveals itself. I’m overwhelmed and extremely excited,” the director added. Actors Vikramjeet Virk, Waluscha De Sousa, Gaurav Sharma, Viraf Patel, Amy Aela and others round out the cast of the show.
