We caught up with Swastika ahead of the launch and had a candid chat about her role in KKBT and more. Here are edited excerpts:
Q. What made you sign up for Ki Kore Bolbo Tomay?
A. Firstly, the script excited me. And the character of Radhika is something I really liked.
Q. How are you preparing for the role of Radhika?
A. Since I took the challenge of playing the character of Radhika, I began educating myself as per the character’s demand. I am learning how to sketch, how to design…I am trying to find the USP of Radhika’s character. A fashion designer and so on.
Q. Do you relate to your character?
A. Yes, of course. I do relate to Radhika.
Q. Any memorable experience from the shooting yet?
A. While shooting the promo at Sandakphu with the Kanchenjunga in the background, the temperature was a chilling four degrees. It was indeed a memorable experience (laughs).
Q. How do you define love?
A. Well, I want to say…Personally for me of course I like the process of falling in (love). It’s all in the process and that’s exactly what Ki Kore Bolbo Tomay is all about. The process of falling in (love) and falling apart. Love is what one feels, just a sweet feeling of being complete and happy!
Q. Tell us something about you that people don’t know.
A. People don’t know my latest crush, that only I know. And I I say that people will get to know about it (laughs). Jokes apart, on a serious note, my life is an open book. People know almost everything about me as in me Swastika Dutta the actress.
