Rati Pandey was not sure about playing goddess

In an interview with a daily, Rati Pandey talked about essaying Sati /Parvati in Devi: Adi Parashakti. She said that she has always wanted to try out different characters and looks. This is her first attempt at a mythological character and she was extremely nervous about it as she has always behaved like “a tomboy” in her real life.

Rati Pandey disclosed that her mother too got apprehensive when she told her about the role. She said that her mother asked her if she would be able to do justice to the role, because of her off-screen persona. Rati stated that, however, while playing the character she got to learn a lot and gained immense knowledge. The ability to essay various roles within the same show made her say yes to 'Devi'. And she is glad about this decision of her, Rati concluded.
