Actress Dipika Kakar, who plays Simar in Colors’ show Sasural Simar Ka says she was not comfortable playing a fly and the trolls did affect her when she turned a Makkhi in the show.
When the actress was asked about her first reaction when she was informed of playing a fly, she said, “I was just blank. When we got to know that the show was going to add supernatural elements, we all were like, Pata nahi kya hoga, chalega ki nahi? But it worked. And after that, I was like, Agar woh kaam kar sakta hai toh yeh (turning into a fly) bhi chal jayega.”
Further when she was asked whether she found it funny or not, she said, “No, because I did not have to do anything. The makkhi was created digitally and I just gave my voice-over. I was a little happy thinking ki chhutti bhi milegi kya? I was also doubtful, and wondering, ‘Ab kya hoga? Will it work?’ I have actually had people call me makkhi after that (laughs).”
