Playing a warrior really challenging: Soni Singh
Mumbai–Actress Soni Singh finds playing a warrior in the show “Aarambh” challenging and exciting.
“Playing a female warrior is really challenging and exciting. It’s not a regular drama. It gives you a chance of doing stunts and challenge yourself as an actor,” she said in a statement.
“To play Syala in ‘Aarambh’, I’m working out in a gym a lot so that I can look like a warrior. I do heavy weights to look strong on screen. I also need to wear heavy outfits, ornaments and make-up,” added the actress, who has done shows like “Saraswatichandra” and “Bigg Boss”.
Historical roles come with responsibilities: Dolly Sohi

She added: “When I got the role I got very excited thinking that I wouldn’t have to drape the same sari anymore, but now I have realised it is a real pain wearing heavy outfits. But as an actor doing such roles helps you.”
