We have seen actors learn new crafts while playing the famous historical characters. They have to undergo months of training just to get their moves right when the camera rolls. The actress freshly entering this category is Prajakta Gaikwad who plays the role of Yesubai in Swarajyarakshak Sambhaji on ZEE5.
Here’s how our onscreen Yesubai is showing us the unforgettable moments in Maharashtra’s history:
Prajakta had to take up horse riding and fencing to play the brave queen of the realm and wife of Sambhaji Bhosale for the TV serial. While talking about this to a news portal, the actress said, “I was very afraid of animals and my entry in the show was riding on a horse. As everyone knows that Yesubai was an expert in horse riding and fencing.” This was a huge responsibility on Prajakta’s shoulders to make the audience believe her part.
We totally understand Prajakta’s apprehension as entering into a new field comes with a bucket full of fear and excitement. However, with her sheer dedication, the Sawarjyarakshak Sambhaji actress mastered the art within two weeks. If that wasn’t enough, she also had to get under Yesubai’s skin by copying the royal mannerisms. Here’s a round of applause to our onscreen #QUEEN!
