Mumbai: Gone are the days when you would see the quintessential mother-in-law clad in traditional saris and heavy jewelry. Bharati Achrekar who essays the role of Dolly Walia from Star Plus’s newly launched show, Sumit Sambhal Lega is breaking the monotony as she dons a modern attire on the show.
Playing the typical Punjabi mother-in-law, the veteran actress is sporting a stylish bob haircut along with simple salwar suits. Dolly Walia, may be the typical mother-in-law who is always nitpicking on her daughter-in-law, Maya (played my Manasi Parekh Gohil) but her look on the show is definitely something to watch out for!
Bharati Achrekar shared, “The best part about my character, Dolly is that she is not your larger than life mother-in-law who is constantly scheming against her daughter-in-law and is seen clad in heavy sari’s and loud make-up. Even the conversations between Dolly and Maya are very honest and real, there is nothing happening behind the back. The best part is that I love my hair short and when the makers of Sumit Sambhal Lega told me I can keep it for the character, I was so happy! How often do you see a television mother-in-law with a short hairstyle wearing simple Punjabi suits?”
