Actor Smriti Khanna who has featured in shows Ganesh Leela, Santoshi Maa etc has been on a hiatus for nearly a year now, will don the role of a Queen in Colors’ upcoming magnum-opus presentation, Shrimad Bhagwat produced by Nikhil Dwivedi.
She will be a new addition to the cast and plays the role of Rani Hiravati, the wife of Raja Parikshit who is Abhimanyu’s son.
Says Smriti, “I have a very interesting track and the story is lovely. The untold stories from our mythology are not known to people. People know about Abhimanyu but nobody knows about Parikshit. So we will be exploring such tales which are not known to all.”
Smriti’s ardent love for God made her accept this role. “Yes, you can say that the love for God made me take this up. Also I like getting dressed up. The level at which the shoot of Shrimad Bhagwat is being shot is great. Nikhil Dwivedi is a big name and working with him is a boon. Also, associating with Colors is a good feeling.”
Best of luck, Smriti!!
