On a special day marking the birth anniversary of Kastur Gandhi, the creators of the highly anticipated series “Gandhi” have unveiled the actor who will embody the iconic role of Kasturba. In an exciting announcement, Bhamini Oza, the real-life partner of acclaimed actor Pratik Gandhi who portrays the titular role of Mahatma Gandhi in the series, is set to play Kasturba.

This casting choice brings a unique dimension to the series, as the chemistry between Pratik and Bhamini is bound to translate into a powerful on-screen dynamic. Pratik, who embodies the spirit of Gandhi with uncanny precision, has expressed a deep personal connection to the Mahatma, making this collaboration with Bhamini even more significant.

Bhamini Oza’s portrayal of Kasturba Gandhi promises to capture the essence of strength, grace, and resilience embodied by the eminent figure known affectionately as ‘Ba’. A fighter in both life and politics, Kasturba’s role in shaping Gandhi’s journey is pivotal, and the Gandhi story is incomplete without her.

Bhamini Oza “Stepping into Kasturba Gandhi’s shoes feels like a beautiful twist of fate in my acting journey. Working with Hansal Mehta and the Applause Entertainment team is a dream come true, especially alongside my husband Pratik. From our early theatre days, we’ve dreamed of sharing the screen together, and now it’s finally happening. My attempt is to bring honesty to the character and a genuine connection to the story.”

Sameer Nair, Managing Director, Applause Entertainment, “The decision to cast real-life couple Pratik and Bhamini as Mohan and Kastur adds a unique layer of authenticity to our series. Their shared understanding brings an unparalleled depth of realism to the portrayal of these legendary characters.”

Director, Hansal Mehta, “I’ve known Bhamini as a terrific actor – she is formidable on stage. To showcase her playing the character of a lifetime is truly a privilege. Kastur is special and to discover her through Bhamini’s performance is even more special.”

With the dynamic duo of Pratik Gandhi and Bhamini Oza at the helm, “Gandhi” promises to be a riveting portrayal of one of history’s most influential figures and his steadfast partner.
