Drashti Dhami’s next comes in the form of Duranga, where she essays the role of a police officer who’s picture perfect family harbours a dark secret. The actress recently opened up about what made her say yes to the webs eries, and the prep she did to essay her role.

In conversation with news agency IANS, the actress revealed that the thing that excited her the most about the show is the chance of getting to do a new character, saying that she had never played the role of a police officer before in her career. She also spoke of how thrilled she had been about being directed by Pradip Sarkar,which she said was a once in a lifetime experience. The concept of Duranga also appealed to Drashti, as she had never been a part of a Korean adaptation before. “So all the ticks were a yes”, said the actress.

Drashti revealed that the series involved a few underwater sequences as well,and she tried to get more physically fit in preparation. The actress went through a couple of workshops to train herself to stay and breathe underwater. She also tried to make sure she got the body language of her character right, and took help from one of her cousins in the military for the same. Her cousin had taught the actress the proper way to hold a gun as well.

Duranga will see Drashti share the screen with Gulshan Devaiah, Hera Mishra,Rajesh Khattar,Divya Seth,Zakir Hussain,Barkha Bisht and Abhijit Khandkekar.
