In the world of entertainment, breaking into a new market can be a daunting task for any actor.
However, for Kenyan actress Margaret Kariuki Wanjiku, her first foray into the Indian film industry has been nothing short of a resounding success.
Her feature in the new Indian TV series “Happy Family Conditions Apply” marks a major milestone in her career and offers her a chance to showcase her talents to audiences worldwide.
As the story unfolds, viewers are introduced to the Dholakia family, a dysfunctional four-generation joint family living in Mumbai.
Margaret Kariuki plays the pivotal role of Kwamboka, a character who brings her unique perspective to the family’s chaotic dynamics.
The clash between traditional and modern values lies at the heart of the story, and the imperfections of this family are sure to resonate with viewers from all backgrounds.
The show premiered on March 10 with four episodes.
Margaret’s passion for acting and dedication to her craft shine through in her performance, and critics have already taken note of her ability to seamlessly blend into the ensemble cast. But how did Margaret get this coveted role?
It all began when Hats Off Production, one of India’s oldest production houses, received her audition tape among numerous submissions from different African countries.
After being shortlisted, Margaret underwent a series of auditions and interviews before finally landing the role of Kwamboka.
In a previous interview, Margaret expressed her excitement about being a part of this incredible project and working with a talented cast and crew.
She noted that being able to represent Kenya on an international stage is a dream come true, and she hopes that audiences will enjoy the show as much as they enjoyed making it.
“I am so excited to be a part of this amazing project and to have worked with such a talented cast and crew. Being able to represent Kenya and showcase our talents on an international platform is an incredible honor. I hope audiences enjoy the show as much as we enjoyed making it,” Margaret said.
Directed by Aatish Kapadia and produced by JD Majethia, “Happy Family Conditions Apply” is a celebration of Kenya’s and India’s rich cultural heritage.
Aatish Kapadia speaks highly of Margaret’s talent and dedication, saying, “We are thrilled to have Margaret as a part of our film. She brought an infectious energy and enthusiasm to the set, and her performance is truly a testament to her talent and dedication.”
In the show, Margaret acts alongside Bollywood stars such as Ayesha Jhulka, Atul Kurkarni, Raj Babbar, Ratna Pathak Shah, and Sanar Kapur, which is a testament to her growing prominence in the industry.
Margaret Kariuki’s acting journey began in 2020, and she made her mark by portraying Yvonne in the local TV series “Uriru Wa Wendo” in 2021.
This Kikuyu series, which airs on Inooro TV, offers drama, suspense, and love triangles, showcasing Margaret’s versatility as an actress.
Her latest role as Kwamboka in “Happy Family Conditions Apply” promises to be an unforgettable cinematic experience celebrating the intersection of cultures and the power of storytelling.
While much is known about Margaret’s professional journey, little information is available about her family. She is married to an Indian man named Atul Kumar.
