Madhura Joshi Divekar



To start with interviewing Madhura Joshi , we first need to admit the actress is 10 times sweeter in person than her bright sugarcane like smile! Madhura seems to be really genuine and a friendly person. She easily adds herself in any kind of environment, this all reflects her values and beliefs. Initially the interview started as a formal question answer session which was planned but later the interview turned in a brief talk and we found that Madhura is so herself in every bit she does !She is very clear regarding her career and life. Along with being an awesome actor, Madhura is also a wonderful singer.

She played versatile roles during dramas in theatre. We enjoyed watching her before in “saare tujyachsathi’’ and now we are drooling over her role in ongoing serial “Shrimant Garachi Suun”.

Team Paradox and her fans were excited to know about her life, journey and her ongoing career. We could barely find a source to do so. So, team Paradox reached Madhura Joshi-Divekar and asked some questions that we actually wanted to know and her fans were waiting for!

Q1. Acting has forever been your passion ya “WAQT NE KIYA KOI HASEEN SITAM”?

Madhura Joshi: Acting was always my passion, when I was schooling in I participated in drama. I was awarded by the best actor award for that drama and my acting journey started. My father was so supportive and my aai (Mom) did many directions and acting while she was in college. So I think acting and singing is something in my genes.

Basically, I belong from a family that has musical background, so I was always zoned by the artistic environment. While I was in 8th grade, I participated in school drama and I received silver medal of “Rajya Natya” for best actor. In 10th grade I was nominated for “Balashri Puraskar”. Hence, I received scholarship of Balashri for acting and singing. While I was in 8th grade, I lost my father and at that time acting and drama helped me a lot, due to these artforms I came out of the trauma of losing my loved one. Art surely heals.

Q2. What kind of roles you enjoy playing onscreen and which kind of roles you find challenging?

Madhura Joshi: I played various role during theaters. Once I played a challenging role in drama, my role was of “vairagyaa” ,that was the lead male role for the drama. Switching character and playing role is quite challenging but I enjoyed that thing. On the TV front in serials I got to play characters that are kinda of aggressive types but now in ongoing serial I am playing very sweet and innocent character so that’s a new experience for me though. I love playing Bubbli type of character.

Q3. Who are your personal favorites in the industry (male or female actors)?

Madhura Joshi: In this industry, I am blessed that I got the opportunity to work with “Aishwarya tai”. She helped me a lot. I belong to a family with lot of singers,so my voice is very thin, she helped me to bring the base in voice. I learned different things from her.She is moreover my guru on set. There are many fantastic people in industry and I can’t name one but I like Amruta Khanvilkar, because her aura is something different. I get very positive vibes from her personality.

Q4. What are your views regarding the character Disha you played in last serial saare tujyachsathi?

MJ: I think many things were challenging for me. It was my first time in industry to work on sets. So, moving from theatre to TV was beautiful journey. It was challenging though but I loved that process. Disha’s character was kind of bubbli. I loved playing Disha during saare tujyachsathi. Hope so in future I will get something like this or more.

Q5. If given a character from Bollywood to play onscreen which character will you love to play and why?

MJ: There are many characters in Bollywood but, I like character of bubbli from bunty and bubbli. Bubbli character is more like my original self. I genuinely loved the character of Kangana from movie Queen. Whenever I am alone or with people I try to play any of character which strikes my mind. So in industry Shehanaz Gill, apparently seen in big boss. I loved to play her character along with the dialogue in Punjabi accent.

Q6. Tell us one experience when you were struggling in initial days.

MJ: There are many things which helped me a lot. I used to learn things from people around me and from my team. Even a small thing teaches us many lessons. Just a example of spot dada on set, they work really hard and they even don’t complain about things. Their level of dedication towards their work motivates me a lot. I think acting, direction, music are on side and dedication of crew member is on another side. I learned dedication, patience and many small things from them.

Q7. How is it working with Yashoman Apte, Rupal Nand and Gautamee Deshpande?

MJ: Yashoman and Rupal, they both are awesome. In ongoing serial Yashoman is my brother, so there is actual kind of bond between us too. We enjoy, we eat and sometime we fight too. Rupal is very supportive and friendly, moreover she treats me like her younger sister. Actually, whenever she sees me, she feels like her younger sister is around. Working with her is fun. Gautamee and me were so close to each other, during shooting we were always together. We use to have fun together and sometimes we both used to sing and turned sets melodious!

Q8. Do you re watch yourself on tv? What are your first thoughts when you see yourself?

MJ: Yes, I do watch my serial. But during my first serial I use to rewatch the episodes a lot. Because I used to learn many things by rewatching it, it helped me to improve. Seeing first time on tv was an awesome experience. It was like dream come true, that was awesome feeling. I can’t even express that feeling in words. I watch episodes because I am curious about editing, direction and a keen editor too.

Q9. Along with being a good actor, Madhura you are also wonderful singer, so singing skills helped you?

MJ: Just, in this ongoing serial before few days ago in a scene I was asked to sing fee lines of a song, I sang few lines of that song as the scene demanded and surprisingly after that everyone on the unit were singing that song. I felt so happy by seeing this. I got appreciated too for that song. And in last serial I use to sing along with Gautamee Despande. So, we were called as chotta Carvan and mothaa Carvan.

Paradox gets candid and stocks up the inspo from none other than Rajesh Yadav!

Rajesh Yadav Sandy from campus diaries
Rajesh Yadav

1) When did you begin creating material professionally? Was there ever a spontaneous notion or incident that altered your perception of content creation as a profession?

Rajesh Yadav: In December 2015 I started making content, and by God’s grace, my first video drew a big audience. My second video later went viral, making the characters well-known. As my first video went viral, I was motivated to work even harder on my content creation and no longer had to worry about making this my career.

2) Were there any other role models you admired before beginning your journey?

Who motivated you to keep going?

Rajesh Yadav: I liked watching TVF and AIB’s funny and caustic videos before I started working in this field. After seeing their work, I became a fan and started making videos.

3) When did your life change for the better?

Rajesh Yadav: Creating my first video marked a turning moment in my life because I had never before considered a career in the arts or as a content developer. Although I didn’t have much experience in this sector while I was in college. I joined a theatre organization because I had some free time, and I worked there on the weekends.

4) How did you find acting as Sandy in the Campus diaries?

Rajesh Yadav: Sandy from Campus Diaries was my first role in a web series. Due to his many varied characteristics, including the fact that he begins as a friend and ends up as a villain, Sandy is an extremely distinctive character. I had never portrayed a somewhat pessimistic role before. For the first time, I had the opportunity to participate in something brand-new; perhaps the second season will have even more surprises.

5) Whoever would you like to work with if you had the chance to work with any artist in the world, and why?

Rajesh Yadav: Shahrukh Khan is the person I would choose to collaborate with if given the chance. Shahrukh Khan is someone we have all admired and been inspired by since we were young kids, no matter where he is today. I’ve wanted to meet Shahrukh Khan since I was a young child, and if I ever had the chance to work with anyone I wish, Shahrukh Khan would be my first choice.

6) What difficulties did you face at the beginning of your journey?

Rajesh Yadav: The major obstacle I had to overcome at the beginning of my adventure was learning how to produce original and creative videos for the audience. My goal was to come up with concepts that I might potentially employ in novel ways over the long term rather than to produce something that couldn’t be used in the future. Thankfully, I had only encountered these challenges in my first video.

7) Your thoughts? Is that your greatest success to date?

Rajesh Yadav: Any success I may have feels enormous to me as a regular person who enjoys watching superstars and I always had fantasies about meeting them. Nevertheless, now that I’ve recently collaborated with Nawazuddin Siddiqui, communicating and working with them. It is an accomplishment. After following him in college and attempting to meet him, it’s an enormous accomplishment for me to be able to communicate and work with superstars.

8) What is your greatest professional goal?

Rajesh Yadav: We are all aware that every one of us has different goals. My current objective is to play the main character in a movie or web series so that I may discover my talent and exhibit it to others. This is my current objective, and after I reach it, I’ll think about pursuing some more challenging objectives.

9) How have you found performing and writing for MensXP? It is a truly new platform that requires robust connectivity in order to function.

Rajesh Yadav : Four years of working with MensXP has been a wonderful experience. You can work there with complete creative freedom whether you’re writing or acting. It’s critical that you are given the freedom to complete your task on your schedule without interruption. As a result of the drastically different environment you find yourself in, the genre is quite varied and contains humor.

10) What is the final message you would like to convey to your supporters and well-wishers?

Rajesh Yadav: I can only advise my well-wishers to take care of themselves. In this society when everyone is scrambling for something, we all neglect to take care of our physical and mental health. Sometimes we continue to put our physical health first while ignoring our mental health. I, therefore, urge every one of my well-wishers to take care of both themselves and others around them.
