EXCLUSIVE! Maddam Sir’s Gulki Joshi talks about exploring other characters

MUMBAI : Gulki Joshi is currently ruling hearts with her performance as SHO Haseena Malik in Sony SAB’s cop-comedy Maddam Sir.

The actress has won a lot of praise for her amazing performance. Gulki is a seasoned actress and has been in the industry for a very long time now. Well, Gulki has proved her mettle in several TV shows over her long career. Gulki has previously starred in shows like Phir Subah Hogi, Nadaan Parindey Ghar Aaja, Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, Piya Rangrezz and Piya Albela among others.


Gulki has portrayed really strong characters over her acting career and she inspires a lot of young girls.

Any new projects that you have indulged in or you have done?

Nothing really, because I am shooting everyday for this show and and until this finishes, I really don’t want to do anything else. This is because when you do a show for a very long time, and when you’ve been in a character for so long, it will take a little while to get it out of system before taking on to another character. There was a phase, where I thought that I should start expanding and venturing out, but as an actor, I think I am really fatigued creatively. I need a break before I can do anything else.

Does the fan adoration and validation help you in this field and to pull through even when you are creatively fatigued?

Actually, that’s the thing! There are only certain things that help you pull through. When you are sick and tired of being in that character, it is the adoration, love and appreciation of the fans that inspires me to keep going.

How do you relax after a long tiring schedule?

I relax by meeting my friends, who’ve known me before I was on Maddam Sir or an actor because they give me a reality check and that is very important to keep one grounded or to be able to be normal. I think that’s a great way to disconnect.

Gulki has definitely aced the role of Haseena Malik. We can’t wait to see her diversify and watch her in more interesting roles. The rumours are going around that the show might go-off air!
