Nasir Khan will essay the role of her husband will Chhavi Pandey will play the role of Goddess Laxmi. The show also features actors like Tanisha Mehta, Mitil Jain, Manan Joshi, and Mahi Sharma in pivotal roles.In a recent interview with India Forums actress, Chhavi Pandey opened up on her thoughts on costume drama and experimenting with characters and much more.Talking about the show Shubh Laabh, she shared, “The show Shubh Laabh- Aapkey Ghar Mein has a very different concept and I have got an opportunity to portray a very different character in it. In my career, I have never done any monotonous character but have always experimented with the shades I have played on screen. So, this is one of the major reasons I took up this show. Also, the concept of the show has never been explored on Indian television screens, so I knew I want to be a part of this show.”When asked about the preps she did for the role, Chhavi said, “This is definitely a very different genre, and a different character comes with lots of challenges and responsibilities. It is difficult to essay the role of a Goddess and channel that energy. It is furthermore challenging to portray it on-screen and convince people of the character you are playing. As an actor, I prepare even the slightest nuances of my character every day, and I keep rehearsing a lot and try to keep my personality and body language correct so that the audience can connect with me and accept me playing the role of Maa Laxmi.”Sharing her experience on the sets so far, she said, “When we were shooting in Ratlam, people used to come to us and instantly feel connected to the concept of the show. One family came to visit me and Geetanjali Ji on sets and brought a bouquet and famous Ratlami sev for us. The woman who had come along with the family told us that she has also experienced the dilemma that we are showing in Shubh Laabh in her life. I was really intrigued by her. I feel this is the incident that I shall always remember.”Talking about costume drama and the challenges involved, Chhavi says, “I have done one costume drama till date, which was a mythology show and I essayed the role of Maa Parvati. But this show has a whole different concept, and I am not playing a stereotypical Maa Laxmi which people have previously watched on television. It will be a different experience for the audience with Shubh Laabh. My character in the show has a divine presence and it requires special preparations that ensure we capture the tiniest nuances. Since one can naturally play or improvise with a regular life character, but while portraying a Goddess, we need to think and act accordingly.”When asked about the reaction of her family when they witness her growth, Chhavi shared, “My family has been very supportive throughout and now they are very happy watching me grow as an actor. My father, mother and uncle have played an important role in making me whoever I am today. They are as excited as I am and are waiting to watch the show.”
