TV actress, Shubhangi Atre who is currently seen in TV show “Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain!”, says she does not find marriage as a barrier in an actor’s career.
“Many times I read in interviews where actresses claim that they are not getting lead roles in shows because they are married and have a child. But I personally don’t believe in this,” Shubhangi said in a statement.
“I feel if we have talent, well maintained personality and a physique for a lead role, we can easily get them,” she added.
Shubhangi, who has earlier worked in shows like “Kasautii Zindagii Kay” and “Kasturi”, is a mother of a 12-year-old daughter.
“I’m playing a lead role. I was not even approached for a mother’s role. I feel blessed,” added the 37-year-old.
The actress recently said that she is a huge fan of ace boxer MC Mary Kom and wants to play the athlete on the small screen. Mary Kom has recently won her sixth world title.
Praising Mary Kom, the “Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain!” fame star urged Indian television shows’ makers to create a show on the boxer’s life as it will encourage the youth.
“I really feel the need of a series based on the life of Mary Kom even on the television screen. She is really an inspiration for the youth and watching her will be a way to encourage youth.
“I myself want my daughter to learn a lot from her. If I’m given a chance, I would love to play her on the TV screen,” Shubhangi said in a statement.
Mary Kom’s life was brought alive on the big screen by actress Priyanka Chopra in a film directed by Omung Kumar.>
