Shilpa Shukla on ALTBalaji’s ‘Mentalhood’: The actors are just the right balance between sensitivity and humour


Raising kids is an art. Some make it into a highly precise science, but most of them are like tigresses protecting their cubs. Directed by Karishma Kohli, ‘Mentalhood’ will see the talented actor Shilpa Shukla making her digital debut as Namrata Dalmia, a workaholic mom. Staying true to the title, the web-series will showcase the topsy-turvy ride that comes with being a mother.

Shilpa Shukla joins the palette of promising actors to bring this fresh concept to life. Shilpa’s character, Namrata is the Queen of multi-tasking and if this were a circus, she would be a master juggler where her default emotional setting is guilt. Untouched by the judgements that come along, Namrata downs tequila to throw away even a hint of self-doubt while embracing motherhood. Spilling more on her role, Shilpa shared, “It’s feels amazing to arrive at Namrata, her reality and relevance. To give a face and voice to numerous women out there in the world who are constantly balancing work and family, remains as the most unique experience for me. I feel grateful to be sharing the screen with such marvellous actors. They are just the right balance between sensitivity and humour. They support you in discovering the character together.

Talking about how Shilpa has taken inspiration from her own life for the character, she further adds, “It’s such a pleasant space to be in every morning when Karishma Kohli, the super talented director takes you through her vision of the character amd scene. I, being a director’s actor, look forward to how she envisions a scene and story.
