BH CORRESPONDENT, Mumbai: A movie completes with a hero, heroine, and villain. This is not the whole picture if you want to know the truth. There are many character roles in a movie that stick with the heroes or villains and lead the movie forward. But sometimes, due to a powerful impact, or captivating incidents, these actors become a fan favourite. There are many series and movies in Bollywood where actors playing the character roles get appreciation and awards. Be it Manoj Bajpayee from films like Bandit Queen, Aka, Satya and Gangs of Wasseypur, Nawazuddin Siddiqui from Gangs of Wasseypur – Part 2, Sacred Games and Manto. In fact, more than his films, his web series Sacred Games became popular and so did his character — Ganesh Gaitonde.
Bollywood actress Pranati Rai Prakash was recently a part of the web series Mannphodganj Ki Binny, which narrates the story of a woman looking to make her dreams come true while staying in touch with her traditional values. But in this series what caught the attention of the fans more was Binny and the character that she portrayed. Fans loved Binny’s modern and quirky, yet her desi swag style, and she has gained a lot of appreciation for it. And Pranati, who tasted fame in Imtiaz Ali’s recent release Love Aaj Kaal is on cloud nine.
”The best appreciation as an actor happens when you’re called by your character’s name and hence this is the best time for me because so many of my fans are calling me Binnyji and that’s so sweet. I also saw these TikTok videos of my dialogues and I was so happy to hear my voice and watch them enact my scenes. I’m really happy how everyone is responding to my character Binny,” Pranati said.
The MX Original Series is a dramedy adapted from the book Band Baaja Boys by Rachna Singh. The 10 episodic series also features Alka Kaushal, Atul Srivastava and Anurag Sinha in key roles.
