While the show  shoots are on hold due to the coronavirus, the back stories keep going. Actress Akanksha Juneja who is known for her portrayal of varied negative characters in many popular stores is now all set to play one more negative character.  Yes the actress has been roped in to play the ferocious character of Simhika in &TV’s Kahat Hanuman Jai Shri Ram. Simhika is the daughter of a demon king and mother of Svarbhanu who was beheaded by Lord Vishnu into Rahu the head part and Ketu the body part.

Akanksha last portraited role of the female avatar of lord Shiva and now will be seen in a fierce get up. Talking about her experience Akanksha Juneja said, “I like to play negative roles as it gives you a chance to portray different shades of yourself. While essaying the character of Simhika, I used voice variations in different places and also developed a signature laughter for my character to build more intrigue.”  

With each interesting character comes its own sets of challenges which Akanksha also faced while stepping into her character. “I wanted to experiment with a completely different look,  but was really not aware about how difficult it would be to don this character’s look. As actors we are used to carrying a heavy look but when you have use paint and other materials on your body to depict your character, that where the real challenge lies. Shooting as Simhika meant donning a completely black look. While, it takes me 4 hours to get the look right, it takes more than 2 hours to get the colour off my body. There are slight shades of black on my skin which will take a while to go. All in all I believe it was completely worth for the experience and the character.

Bringing forth the dreaded character of Simhika, Akanksha is looking forward to striking a chord with her viewers.
