Sheena Bajaj is excited about her challenging new role on TV!!
She will play the role of Mehar, the eldest daughter in the main family in Star Plus’ upcoming show Mariyam Khan – Reporting Live on Star Plus (Somersault).
The role is very special for Sheena as it is totally opposite to what she is in real life. Says the actor, “This is a challenge for me as it is totally different from what I am. I am a girl next door in real life, very lively and bubbly. But Meher is so very mature that she hardly interacts with anyone. She’s the very reserved girl who is always into her books. The girl is low on energy usually, but when she keeps her point across firmly, there is hardly anything to argue about.”
Sheena who has been part of the TV and movie circuit regards this role to be very important for her. “This has to be the most significant career-defining role in my career. If all goes well and my character picks up the pace, this is going to be a huge character for me. I am lucky to have got this role. I am grateful and thankful to all who are involved in this project. I was waiting for a main lead role and was not doing anything for the last 3-4 months before I bagged this one. I am very much excited for the show to go on air.”
Sheena had to master the dialect of Urdu to keep pace with the character. “Yes, getting into the skin of the character was a challenge. But I have now started getting the feel and hang of everything. There’s a new spark in me when I set foot to shoot every morning (smiles). This is what an actor wants in his/ her career.”
Wish you all the best, Sheena!!
