Web sensation Aahana Kumra, who impressed audience in web-series like Inside Edge, Official Chukyagiri, It Happened In Hong Kong, is back with one more series. The actress will be seen in ZEE5’s next original, Rangbaaz produced by JAR Pictures and directed by Bhav Dhulia, and written by RJ Siddharth.
The series which is set against the rustic background of Gorakhpur, is the story of a man who encounters the dark and dirty world of crime. The show will depict the grey layers of one of the most feared gangsters of the region from the 90’s. It also stars Saqib Saleem, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Ranvir Shorey, Ravi Kishan.
Commenting on the show and her character, she shares, “It is based on a person Shiv Prakash Shukla who was infamous in UP. The gangster was encountered at the age of 25; so you can imagine what journey he would have had. He was notorious and was known for kidnapping. He was one of the most ferocious characters in UP. I am playing his love interest named Babita. She was a rebellious, unafraid, uninhibited, and brave girl who was the only sane thing in Shiv’s insane world. Shiv-Babita had a wonderful love story. It was a great experience working with Saqib. He is a thorough professional.”
When asked about the preparations to play the character, she avers, “I am from Lucknow. All of my cousins used to come to my place and stay with us. So I used to listen to their conversation secretly when they used to speak to their boyfriends. I have tried to implement and use as a reference for my character in the series.”
2018 has been a great year for Aahana in terms of work. The actress plans to continue the same amount of dedication in the year to come. “I plan to continue my good work. The goal is to be more aggressive to get more work. I plan to say ‘yes’ more and ‘no’ less. I have fearlessly worked in 2018. I believe if I continue working like this, I would get more work.”
Good luck girl!
