Mumbai, Jan 5 (IANS) Actor Rohit Suchanti has opened up on the ongoing sensitive sequence in the show ‘Bhagya Lakshmi’, and shared how he took the inspiration from Kamal Haasan’s character in ‘Sadma’.

The show revolves around Lakshmi (Aishwarya Khare) and Rishi (Rohit Suchanti). In the recent episodes, viewers witnessed how Lakshmi has been taken to the mental asylum even after Rishi’s multiple attempts to save her.

While Rishi has been trying his best to get Lakshmi out of the mental asylum, in real life Rohit feels blessed to get an opportunity to portray a character that challenges him as an actor as well as draws attention towards the very important topic of treating people suffering from mental disorders with patience and sensitivity.

Through the course of the show, we have seen Lakshmi be the mature one in the relationship and take care of Rishi and now it’s time for Rishi to step up and take care of a mentally unstable Lakshmi who has lost her memory post a deadly accident.

Portraying this character beautifully, Rohit talked about the change he feels in himself after playing such a sensitive role. He shared that the current track of the show is very interesting and he is thoroughly enjoying himself, as Rishi’s character has taken a 360-degree turn.

“While no one is aware of why Lakshmi is behaving childlike and is calling her ‘mad’ it is Rishi who believes in her and is taking care of her. Before we started shooting for this, the team gave me Kamal Haasan Sir’s character from Sadma as a reference and we all know what a masterpiece that movie is. I watched the movie and understood the kind of change Rishi’s character was going through,” said Rohit.

The 1983 tragedy romantic drama ’Sadma’ stars Kamal Haasan and Sridevi in lead roles. The film tells the story of Nehalata (Sridevi), a young woman who regresses to childhood as result of retrograde amnesia after suffering a head injury in a car crash.

He further shared: “There are a lot of times when such scenarios take place in real life and people are not so sensitive to the ones who are going through mental issues. But after playing this phase of Rishi’s character graph, I have realised how important it is to be sensitive and patient with people facing mental issues.”

Rohit said that through this sequence, they are trying to give out a strong message to the audience about how a little help towards someone can also make a big difference in their lives.

“I must add Aishwarya is doing a fantastic job in the current track. I just hope the audience also showers us with all their love,” he added.

‘Bhagya Lakshmi’ airs on Zee TV.
