Sayantani Ghosh is seen as Vindhya Devi in Ravindra Gautam and Raghuvir Shekhawat’s 'Dahej Daasi', which is produced under their banner Do Dooni 4 Films. This is the first time in 20 years that she is playing a Rajasthani character, and she says it feels special. In fact, her in-laws though pahadis, hail from Jaipur, Rajasthan. They helped her get the nuances right for the character.

“I've been in the acting industry for almost two decades, and playing a Rajasthani character for the first time feels really special to me. It holds personal significance because my in-laws are from Jaipur, Rajasthan, so I've had their help in getting the dialect and nuances right. We had extensive script reading sessions with our makers, where we learned how to pronounce words like ‘athe aao’ and ‘bhindani’ authentically,” she said.

Sayantani had earlier played a Sardarni in her show Tera Yaar Hoon Main, and she says she is lucky to have played such diverse roles in her career. 

“Professionally, it's been a challenging but rewarding experience, especially as I've had the opportunity to play diverse roles in recent years. From portraying a Sardarni in Tera Yaar Hoon Main to now being a Rajasthani character, it's been a journey of learning and growth,” she said.

“It's not easy for someone like me, who is Bengali, to pick up different dialects and regional aspects, but I'm proud of the hard work I've put in. The feedback from viewers, saying that I look the most authentic as a Rajasthani character on the show, makes it all worth it. Overall, it's been a fun and challenging process, and I'm grateful for the trust the industry has placed in me,” she added.

Rajasthan holds a special place in her heart, and she revealed that she has lost count of how many times she has been there. She was all praise for the rich culture and heritage of the place, and said, “I've been there countless times, for my wedding reception and even when my husband and I were dating. The city is incredibly rich in culture, with its vibrant colours, historic palaces, delicious food, and bustling markets.”

“I especially love the traditional fashion, like the colorful bandhani and bandhej sarees, as well as the unique prints like Baghduru. I've always been drawn to Indian heritage and culture, so Rajasthan's charm always excites me. The architecture and old-world charm of the city are truly captivating, and I always look forward to my visits there,” Sayantani signed off.
