I gave about 17 re-takes to bag the lead in Jyoti and still had no hopes – Sneha Wagh
Jyoti is currently airing on Dangal TV at 10am & 9pm
Popular Hindi serial ‘Jyoti’ is a story of how a young woman sacrifices her dreams in order to fulfill the needs of her family. She conquers all kinds of obstacles so that her family can lead a decent life. The show first went on air in 2009 and was very well received. Riding on the show’s success, leading Hindi GEC, Dangal TV is now getting the show back on air on popular demand.
Sneha Wagh, who plays the lead role in the show, shares her unexpected experience of bagging the show. Sneha was a part of the Marathi industry, when the creative producer of Jyoti saw her on the television screen while flipping through the channels. They were finding the perfect fit for the character for about 6 months and they instantly knew that she was the one. Sneha was then called to audition for the role.
Recalling her audition experience, she says, “I was a part of the Marathi industry, when the creative producer of Jyoti first spotted me on the television screen while flipping through channels. They were looking for a perfect fit for about six months and that’s when they noticed me. I was immediately called for an audition. It was post 11 in the night and I was giving my 17th take for the audition. I just felt all the shots I gave were nowhere upto the mark and I had lost all hopes of bagging the role. But to my surprise, the production house called me back and within 7 days I was signed for the show. All in all the show was an amazing experience.”
Even after 10 years of the show being concluded, the team maintains a WhatsApp group where they are in constant contact with each other.
Jyoti is currently airing on Dangal TV at 10am & 9pm.
