Actress Niyati Fatnani says she felt empowered while channelling the spirit of Goddess Durga for a sequence in "Nazar".
In an upcoming sequence, Pia (played by Niyati) realises her powers and emerges as Goddess Durga to fight a demon sent by Daayan Mohana (Monalisa). Niyati underwent a lot of preparation to get the Durga avatar right.
"This is the most empowered I have felt while playing a character on screen. Pia will soon be seen in her most powerful avatar -- in the divine role of Durga," Niyati said in a statement.
"The makers wanted to make sure that Pia's devi look is perfect and so gave me a beautiful silk sari and some intricate gold jewellery to wear. I really believe that there is a Goddess Durga present within every woman and she is way stronger than she thinks she is."
"I am grateful that I got an opportunity to get into such an avatar on screen and I can't wait to see how fans react to it," she added.
The show is aired on StarPlus.
