Gulki Joshi initially found working with Ashutosh Rana 'very scary'Mumbai, May 8 (IANS) Gulki Joshi says working with critically acclaimed actor Ashutosh Rana in the teleplay “Purush”, was very scary in the beginning.

Ashutosh plays the role of the tyrannical and misogynistic politician Gulab Singh in the play.

“Working with Ashutoshji was very scary in the beginning and eventually extremely comfortable. I genuinely learnt a lot from him and best thing was absolutely no ego hassles,” the actress said.

Gulki, on the other hand, has returned to theatre with “Purush” after a hiatus of two years and admits to having found the role of Ambika Bhagawat, a resilient social activist, extremely demanding and challenging.

“At one point I broke down because I got into character and didn”t know where to stop. I could not get out of the scene even after the final shot was okayed,” Gulki said.
