Apurva Nemlekar has become an overnight sensation, thanks to her character Shevanta on Ratris Khel Chale 2. Clad in cotton sarees, teamed with a loose bun and a big red bindi, the beauty has won hearts with her charming and mysterious personality. In an exclusive interview with ZEE5, the actress revealed that she was hesitant to take up Shevanta’s role initially. “I had recently lost my father and was in the zone of not wanting to work,” she said, adding, “We used to watch the first season of Ratris together and he told me that it’s his dream to see me on the show some day.”

Apurva has now become a household name as Shevanta. When asked whether shooting in the remote locations of Konkan, gets difficult, Apurva says that she doesn’t look at it that way. “When this opportunity came to me, I wanted to grab it. I owe all my success to my father as he wished to see me as a part of Ratris Khal Chale and I’m just fulfilling his dream. Hence, accepting the offer and being far away from home, seemed like a message from Dad,” she says.
