MRUNAL DUSANIS IS EKTA KAPOOR'S DISCOVERY!
Shamika, the popular character in the first Ekta Kapoor's show in Marathi 'Mazhiya Priyala Preet Kalena' on ZEE MARATHI is catching on with the viewers. The debutant actress who plays Shamika is a young theater actress from Nashik called Mrunal Dusanis. In the wake of the popularity of the show we spoke to Mrunal about her success. Here is what she has to say. 
 
Your character of Shamika in the show ‘Mazhiya Priyala Preet Kalena’ is catching on. What do you feel is the reason?
-
I feel the character of a simple innocent and a bit naive girl who totally loves her parents and is family oriented with the girl next door values made the viewers identify with her and touched a chord somewhere. It is my first stint in television and I am learning new things everyday especially the technicalities which are so important. Previously I had done only experimental theater in my home town Nashik but this television stint was something new to me and I am enjoying it.

How was your experience working with the rest of the cast?
- My co-star Abhijeet is from my hometown too and I kind of know him from my experimental theater days where we acted together.So I share a comfort level with him. Other senior actors on the show like Suhita Thatte, Sanjay Mone, Amita Khopkar,have taken me under their wings and make things easier for me and I am very thankful to them for that.

Ekta Kapoor is the undisputed queen of television. Does she give her reactions to your show?
Yes. Ekta madam regularly is in touch with me and has always complemented  me on my acting stint and has been encouraging me a lot.
 

How has the journey from Nasik to Mumbai been?
It has been a very good journey starting from overnight trips for my theater work and now I am firmly settled in Mumbai for a career in the entertainment industry. Even otherwise, Mumbai has been kind to me with a premier channel like ZEE MARATHI offering me a prime time show.
