Her on screen characters and roles are reflections of her real life personality in actuality. Usha Nadkarni, in real life, is very much similar to the roles she portrays on screen, strict and disciplinary, be it Mrs Dixit of “Madhubala Ek Ishq Ek Junoon” or Savita Deshmukh of “Pavitra Rishta”.
Usha Nadkarni never fears in calling spade a spade. She is always frank enough to speak her heart openly on the face of the person. That is one of the reasons that people working with her have great respect for her. She does not believe in talking about the people behind their backs.
Another aspect of Usha Nadkarni’s personality is, she dislikes the use of tobacco in any form. Anybody on the sets smoking or chewing tobacco gets a good measure of shouting from her. She lectures the person on the ill effects of use of tobacco. She has nicknamed the EP (Executive Producer) of Madhubala, as Copper Chimney, due to his excessive smoking habit. Hats off to a great personality called, Usha Nadkarni.
