Her career has taken to new heights after playing endearing Edwina Sharma in the second series of Netflix hit Bridgerton.

And while she traded the horse and carriage for public transport over the weekend, Charithra Chandran could not escape the mammoth popularity of the period drama as she spotted someone watching it on-the-go. 

The actress, who was sporting a safety covering while riding on the bus, took to Instagram Story to share the interesting turn on her journey.

‘The woman in front of me is watching Bridgerton on her phone ayyyyyyyy,’ she wrote to her 757,000 followers.

In a subsequent Story, she pulled down her face mask to reveal a gorgeous face of makeup, including a striking application of bold eyeshadow. 

Last month, Charithra revealed she put pressure on herself to ‘do a good job’ on the Bridgerton set, since she feared ‘messing things up for future Indian actors’.

The TV star, who claimed ‘there are so few opportunities available when you are brown’, confessed she went through ‘such an extreme thought process’ while filming her breakthrough part.

She told Grazia of her character Edwina Sharma: ‘Her life circumstance is one that, as an Indian, I can say many Indian women also face – which is being brought up to be the perfect daughter, mother, wife, sister.  

‘All of those things are, of course, so important, family is always number one. But, often, that means there’s very little room for the self, for one’s own desires.

‘When you are brown, there are so few opportunities available – that’s changing rapidly – but I was stressed that if I didn’t do a good job… what if I messed it up for future Indian actors?’

It comes after Charithra candidly detailed her experiences facing colourism growing up, and how it has become a ‘lifelong struggle’, as she graced the cover of Teen Vogue. 

Bridgerton has been lauded for its representation and its introduction of the Sharma family, and the decision to cast two dark-skinned leads – Charithra and her on-screen sister Simone Ashley – has been praised.
