Talented
film
and
television
actress
Sulagna
Panigrahi
has
returned
to
the
tube
after
a
long
time
with
the
historical
Star
Plus
show

Vidrohi
.
She
speaks
to
Filmibeat
about
her
journey.
“I
always
wanted
to
represent
my
province
and
culture
on
the
national
stage
(the
setting
of

Vidrohi

is
19th
century
Odisha),
and
my
father
was
in
the
army,
so
the
defence
background
(Senapati’s
wife’s
character)
also
was
attractive,”
says
Sulagna.
“The
biggest
challenge
was
the
language.
It
being
a
period
project,
we
can’t
use
conventional
Hinglish.
Also,
every
genre
brings
its
limitations
and
points
to
the
table.”

Sulagana,
who
has
done
small
screen
shows
like

Amber
Dhara

and

Bidaai
,
was
all
praise
for
her
cordial
and
cooperative
co-star
Sharad
Malhotra.
“When
you
work
with
someone
as
talented
as
him,
you
too
need
to
up
your
game,” she
said.

Sulagana
was
honest
enough
to
admit
that
doing
nothing
during
the
lockdown
prompted
her
return
to
TV.
She
said,
“One
of
the
main
reasons
I
stayed
away
from
TV
for
over
a
decade
was
the
sheer
strain
of
the
TV
work
process.
You
not
only
have
to
put
in
long
hours,
but
also
need
to
mug-up
pages
of
dialogues
in
an
hour
without
prep.
Films,
on
the
other
hand,
give
you
much
more
time
and
space
to
imbibe
your
character.
I
am
sure
TV
actors
mouth
more
dialogues
in
an
episode
than
we
do
in
an
entire
film!
But
post
lockdown,
I
am
ready
for
what
it
takes.”

When
asked
how
she
finds
her
film
career,
she
said,
“Quite
challenging.
I
have
faced
lots
of
rejection.
I
only
know
how
to
audition
and
don’t
know
any
other
way
to
get
work.
After

Murder
2

and

Issai

(Tamil),
I
did
quite
a
few
Hindi
flicks,
which,
although
won
film
fest
laurels,
either
did
not
release
in
theatres
or
flopped
for
want
of
known
stars
on
the
poster.”

Her
last
known
film
was
Ajay
Devgn’s

Raid
.
“Despite
the
digital
age,
even
today,
it
is
tough
to
sell
a
film.
I
have
done
a
few
web
series
(Married
Woman
Diaries
Phase
2

on
Sony
Liv)
and
will
do
more.
The
OTT
long-form
format
gives
you
the
freedom
to
explore
your
character
in
depth
without
getting
mundane,”
adds
the
34-year-old,
who
wed
stand-up
comedian
Biswa
Kalyan
Rath
in
December
2020.

Sulagana
does
not
want
to
burden
herself
for
the
low
ratings
of

Vidrohi
.
She
signed
off
saying,
“As
an
actor,
I
can
only
put
in
1000%.
TV
or
films,
unlike
theatre,
are
not
a
performer’s
domain;
there
are
several
other
factors
at
play.
Also,
if
I
take
stress,
it
will
affect
my
output.
Having
seen
many
ups
and
downs,
I
have
become
stoic
and
take
everything
in
my
stride.”
