Mehndi Hai Rachne Waali: Shivangi Khedkar & Sai Ketan Rao speak about their journey to acting

The Star Plus channel is all set to launch a new show titled Mehndi Hai Rachne Waali on February 15, 2021. Actors Shivangi Khedkar and Sai Ketan Rao will be seen essaying lead roles on the small screen as Pallavi Deshmukh and Raghav Rao in the serial. The show has already created a fan base from its trailer. But not many know that Shivangi Khedkar and Sai Ketan Rao, who is also debuting from this show, have left their engineering career to pursue acting.

Talking about her journey, Shivangi Khedkar says, “My family strongly believes that education plays a vital role and hence I took up computer science engineering. As I was pursuing my degree in engineering, I began to realise that my passion lies in acting and decided to take it up. My family was my biggest support and by God’s grace, I got my first opportunity in the Telugu industry. I feel privileged to now embark on a new journey in the Hindi Television industry with my upcoming show ‘Mehndi Hai Rachne Waali’.”

Versatile actor Sai Ketan Rao talks about his life-changing moment, from being an Engineer to an Actor. He says, “As much as I loved to study, I always knew I had the craft of being an actor instilled in me. While I was pursuing my engineering degree, my passion for acting only grew and from that day onwards I just knew I had to give it a shot and in turn, it was successful. I began shooting for TV shows and films in Telugu and then went on to branch out. I always believe in experimenting as language was not a barrier for me. I hope and pray that the audience will love this new avatar of Raghav Rao in my upcoming Hindi TV show ‘Mehndi Hai Rachne Waali’”.

The serial is produced by Sandiip Sikcand. The show also features popular actors like Milind Phatak, Asmita Khatkhate, Rutuja Sawant, Priyanka Dhavale, Sayli Salunkhe, Himanshu Bamezai, Karan Manocha, Ragini Shah, Tilakraj Joshi, Krishna Kaourav, and Sarika Raghawa in pivotal roles.
