Actress Iqra Shaikh, who is known for her role in shows like ‘Maddam Sir’, ‘Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai’, ‘Rang Jaun Tere Rang Mein’, is now all set to be seen in the upcoming television show, ‘Har Phool Ki Mohini’. Iqra recently shot in Gujarat for some scenes.
The actress talked about her character in the show during a recent interview and shared, “I am essaying the role of Malli, who is the younger sister of the lead in the show. We belong to a South Indian family. In the show, I have a deep attachment to my sister. Interestingly, in my real life, I’m the eldest and my younger sisters are the love of my life. So, I feel relatable to the character I am playing.”
When asked about her experience of shooting in Gujarat, she said, “From enchanting scenic beauty to historical monuments, Gujarat is a fascinating place. I enjoyed shooting in Gujarat for the first time. I have always loved the fact that, as an actor, I get to travel to various places and experience different cultures. I am a big foodie so shooting in Gujarat was like a party for me. I enjoyed some ubiquitous snacks of Gujarati cuisine like Fafda-Jalebi, Khandvi, and Gujarati Kadhi.”
Sharing her excitement about her upcoming show, Iqra said, “I’m beaming with excitement and cannot wait for the show to release. This show is going to present me in a completely different avatar and I’m acting in a language that isn’t my own, so there’s a learning curve which is so exciting for me as an actor. I can’t wait to see the reaction from people to my performance.”
