Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah fame Priya Ahuja Rajda joins the cast of Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin
Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah fame actress Priya Ahuja Rajda, who has been missing from the small screen for a while is now all set to join the cast of Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin for a pivotal role.
Priya will be essaying the role of Harshad aka Satya Adhikari’s sister. She will play the character of Maddy who is a lavani dancer. Priya talked about it in a recent interview and shared that she is excited to return to TV in a full-fledged role after 4 years of delivering her son, Ardaas.
She shared, “I am playing Satya’s (Harshad Arora) sister. I am extremely excited to play this character. She is a Lavani dancer and the entire family is of lavani dancers. I am back in a daily soap after 4 years and I am super excited about the show. I don’t think I could have asked for anything better than becoming a part of such a big show. People around me on the sets are so humble and I am very happy and grateful.”
When asked if she was anxious on her first day, she said, “I was never on a break completely, because I was doing Taarak on and off. So it’s not like I had quit facing the camera, there was no nervousness. But yes this is my first daily soap after 4 years so I was a little anxious. The team is very nice. They are very positive and nice to everyone, not just me. They are very supportive.”
Talking about her prep for the role, she said, “I have never done lavani in my life but I am looking forward to the role. Let’s see how well it goes. I am working 4 years after my delivery. Of course, I was doing Taarak Mehta but this is like coming back to a proper daily soap and shooting continuously. More than me, my husband Malav is very happy.”
Priya further revealed how her director husband Malav Rajda is taking over the daddy duties in her absence at home, “My husband Malav is taking care of the mommy duties. He is the one who is dropping him to school and picking him up. He is doing everything that I was doing. It’s like a role reversal for both of us. Once a day I video call my son, because we keep him away from the phone. But I am in regularly in touch with Manav to ask if Ardaas is doing fine,” she shared.
