Amrapali Gupta, who played the evil Tanveer in Qubool Hai, is back on the show. This time, as Karanvir Bohra’s mother. The interesting part is that Karanvir in real life is six years older than Amrapali. But the actress seems to have taken it in her stride. “It’s alright as it’s not a typical mother-son relationship. Even in one of his previous shows, Kasautii Zindagi Kay, he played Shweta Tiwari’s son and Shweta looked much younger than him. Though I didn’t interact too much with the previous leads Karan Singh Grover and Raquesh Vashisht, Karanvir is very sweet.”

Amrapali isn’t afraid of getting slotted as a negative character either. She says, “I think I’m already slotted. After 3 Bahuraniyaan where I played a positive role, I did one negative role just as an experiment. After that I started getting only such roles.” However, Tanveer didn’t start out as negative character — it was meant to be a three-month cameo. But since the audience liked the character so much, it continued.

 

Amrapali, whose character was also known as Billo Rani in the show, will be seen making a re-entry with a cat. But, in real life the actress dislikes cats. She says, “The worst part was that the cat bit me during the scene and my fingers were swollen.” The actress, who was on a break from the show for a while, reveals that she did not get any time to rest. In fact, she was dealing with a family tragedy. She says, “As soon as my character was given a break, we found out that my mother has blood cancer. I was in Nagpur with my mother.”
