Resshmi Ghosh on taking break from acting and playing Mansa Devi in Mahakali

Actress Resshmi Ghosh, who won the Miss India Earth crown in 2002, is known for portraying popular characters like Bhoomi Virani in Ekta Kapoor’s Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi and Indravati in Rashmi Sharma’s Sasural Simar Ka.

After Sasural Simar Ka ended its television run on Colors, Ghosh took a small break from acting. However, she could not keep herself away from the arc light for long and decided to return to TV soon.

She currently plays the character of Mansa Devi in Siddharth Kumar Tewary’s popular mythological show Mahakali: Anth Hi Aarambh Hai, which airs on Colors. Though it is a cameo role, Ghosh decided to take it up as she felt it was a great opportunity for her to begin again.

“I had taken leave from the industry for the past one year. I wanted to start again with a prominent character. This is why I decided to take up this role, although it is just a cameo. I feel this is the good way to begin again. Mansa Devi is my idol. I have admired her since my childhood,” she says.

When asked about her character in the show, she adds, “Mansa Devi is the daughter of Parvati. She is a silent character and a peaceful person.”

Mahakali: Anth Hi Aarambh Hai airs Monday – Friday at 7 pm on Colors.
