Priti Amin who essays the role of the Surili in SABT TV’s Lapataganj says that she is inspired by Paresh Rawal while performing her character of dumb girl in the SAB TV’s popular show. Priti wants to act with the comedy King himself if given a chance in any Bollywood film.
Priti is a big fan of classic comedy movies of Hrishikesh Mukherjee and the Amitabh-Dharmendra starrer classic movie ‘Chupke Chupke’ is her all time favourite. She prefers light hearted comedy roles than the saas-bahu melodrama roles.According to Priti it is very difficult to play the dumb character Surili in the show, since things become equally difficult when one needs to convey the written dialogues through the expressions. In the show Surili’s beautiful expressions are limited to just ‘khao’, ‘jaao’, ‘laao’, ‘aaao’ etc.Currently SAB TV's Lapataganj is heading for the most memorable wedding of Surili and Biji Pandey.
