It would be a matter of good fortune for anyone to get the darshan of Ram Lalla in Ayodhya on the holy festival of Ram Navami. Recently, actors Neha Joshi and Ashutosh Kulkarni, who play the role of Krishna Devi and Krishna Bihari Vajpayee, parents of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee in the serial Atal, got such an opportunity. After coming to the holy land of Ayodhya, we had a special conversation with both of them:

'It is a matter of great happiness for every Indian that such a grand Ram temple has been built in our country. It has been inaugurated recently. A lot of people want to come here. In such a situation, we got to see Ramlala so soon, this is definitely a big thing.' This is said by Neha Joshi, who is playing the role of Krishna Devi, mother of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee in the serial Atal. Neha went to Ayodhya to see Shri Ram with her co-star Ashutosh Kulkarni before Ram Navami.

'Acting is my God'

Neha further says, 'The big thing is that I have reached here through my work and for me my work is not just a job. I like my work very much. For me, my work is God and my worship. I do not worship every day but I do my work honestly every day, so at night I feel that today my worship is complete. So through that work I have come to see God, so that is an even bigger thing for me.' Neha tells that she has never done any work for money. According to Neha, 'I am proud to say that I have never worked just for money. I believe that it is a matter of values. In our show Atal also, we are telling that the foundation of a person who reaches such heights is laid in his childhood itself. He gets those values ​​from his home. Atal ji's father Krishna Bihari was a teacher and his mother was an educated woman of that era, from there he got those values ​​which made him one of the most loved Prime Ministers of India. Similarly, I myself am also from a very progressive family. I grew up in a joint family. My grandparents, my four uncles and aunts, their children, we all lived in the same house. My father's aunt was a nurse. She had done a nursing course. This is about a hundred years old. My aunt's husband had passed away. At that time in Maharashtra, when the husband dies, the woman's hair is cut. My aunt's hair was not cut. My grandmother had also done a nursing course and ran her own maternity home. My parents have been doing theatre in Nashik for the last fifty years. My brother has also done theatre, so both education and art have great importance in my house. That's why I give a lot of importance to my work.

'I have played the role of not only a mother but also a prostitute on screen'

Neha, who has played the role of a mother in all three of her Hindi serials – 'Mahanayak: BR Ambedkar', 'Doosri Maa' and now 'Atal', is so comfortable in modern, bold or bindaas roles. When asked this, she says, 'I have also played the role of a prostitute in a Marathi film. I have not set any limits for myself that I will do this role and I will not do that. Yes, if it is a bold role, then I will definitely see who the maker is? What work has he done before? If the intention of the maker is good, then there is honesty and decency in his nude scenes too. We have seen love scenes in Omkara as well. We have seen the mother-son scene in Haider which has been done very responsibly, so I will see what is the purpose of this intimacy? What is the purpose of this bold character or action? If it is okay for me then I will do it, because I am an actor, I am not a teacher. If I am playing the role of a sex worker, then it is my moral responsibility to play it with complete honesty.'

It is a matter of good fortune to come to Ayodhya during Navratri

Here, actor Ashutosh Kulkarni, who plays the role of Krishna Bihari Vajpayee in the show, also looked very happy after visiting Shri Ram in Ayodhya. He said that we have got the opportunity to come here and visit during Navratri, so I feel very fortunate.
