Now, Nehha Pendse fill the shoes of Saumya Tandon in Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain! She is doing good work in recent episodes on Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain!. The old Angoori bhabi played by Shilpa Shinde also appreciated Nehha Pendse.
The comedy genre is not new for Nehha Pendse as she played the role of Sanjana Hiteshi in the sitcom May I Come In Madam?. Recently, Nehha Pendse opens up on portraying Anita Bhabi. She said,
“The comedy genre is fun but not that easy. Although I have done Comedy before, this experience is new to me. Striking a chord with the audience with your comic timing and quirks is crucial. But I thoroughly enjoy Comedy as it eases out your stress. I do not consider myself a funny person, and neither doing Comedy came naturally to me. But over time and after hours of practice, I can confidently say that I have learnt the trick of the trade. In particular, Anita Bhabi’s character is hugely popular, and the viewers have a certain mindset towards it.
Therefore, I am trying to define my own space and create my own identity. All I request my viewers is give me a fair chance and see Anita from a completely new lense. While the character nuisances continue to be the same but there is some freshness to it. The entire story plot is written, directed, and executed with such finesse, and each character is iconic and has etched a special place in the viewers’ hearts. The success of the show itself speaks volumes of the efforts and hard work. I do consider myself blessed to be chosen to be a part of this cult show.”
Nehha Pendse also talked about her previous work and told nothing was easy for her, and she worked hard for it. Nehha added,
“Nothing ever came easily to me. I have always worked hard for it and will continue doing so. While acting may come naturally to many, I believe acting is an art that only gets better with time and practice. Irrespective of the genre, I strongly believe that making someone laugh or cry profusely is not a cakewalk. A lot of effort goes into bringing out the right emotion. So, I always try my best to feel the emotion first and then emote it in front of the camera. This practice helps me connect well with my audience.”
Nehha Pendse said that she hopes that she will do justice with the character of Anita bhabi in Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain!. She concluded,
“I hope I do justice to the role of Anita Bhabi and live up to everyone’s expectations.”
The way Nehha played the role of Sanjana Hiteshi in the comedy serial ‘May I Come In Madam?’ was outstanding, and we feel she will do full justice with the role of Anita bhabi in Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain!
