‘Bebaakee’, better known As Frankness in English, is streaming on AltnBalaji currently. The web series has received excellent ratings and responses from the viewers for the very fresh content, unlike other cliched or banal subjects. Although 10 episodes of the show are released, viewers are unable to speculate how the story is going to unfold in upcoming episodes. Hence, they are waiting with bated breath to watch the remaining episodes. Giving a slight clue about forthcoming episodes the main lead actress of Bebaakee, Shivjyoti Rajput divulged and informed, “I can only tell you that people will get to see a lot more ‘Bebaakee’ in the forthcoming episodes”, well viewers are definitely prepared to be amused and beguiled by an added dose of entertainment. For now, she remains a happy camper as her heart is imbued with glee for all the praise she is receiving for her performance.
Q. Tell us about your role in Bebakee?
Shivjyoti: Kainaat is a go-getter, calm, humble, and result-oriented person. She is a very principled person. She is highly self-disciplined and she doesn’t consider her self-discipline as a flaw. In today’s generation, people think that if you are disciplined, you are boring but she doesn’t really give attention to those negative comments. She feels if you are a disciplined person and you are dedicated to what you want in life, you can go ahead and get it. Life is not about wasting time, life is all about utilizing time in the right manner and I think that is what Kainaat is doing. She is grabbing each and every opportunity at the right time or I would say that she is doing the right things at the right time.
Q. How was it working with Kushal Tandon, since he is an already established actor?
Shivjyoti: Kushal sir is a very warm person and he welcomed each and every one of us so well. I remember, on the first day of the show, he was told me that Jyoti, I am on the same page as you and Karan. You guys aren’t different, I am on the same page. Don’t consider me that I am on the 20th page, I am on the same page as you are. Don’t see me like I am someone who is already there or established. It is our web series and it is a beautiful story, so we have to work together on this, so I think that unity and respect that he has given to me and Karan, it was amazing to see such a big actor say things like this.
Q. What are your upcoming project, what’s more in store for your fans?
Shivjyoti: So far it is Bebakee, we are still shooting it. You are going to see a lot of Bebakee in the coming times and apart from that I don’t think so, now is the time to talk about it. Once the things are out, you and I will chat here again.
