“I am extremely delighted to play Maya in Adhuri Kahani Hamari. I became an actor by chance when I bagged the role of Madri in Mahabharat. And after Mahabharat ended, I took a break from acting to complete my education. And when I was offered the role of Maya, I was indeed apprehensive to begin with. But after a lengthy chat with the Producer and creative, I decided to take it on. And what helped me in understanding the role better was my knowledge about dance,” explains Suhani.

“Since Maya is a Naagin, she needs to express through her eyes. And being a dancer, I get excited performing such scenes,” she adds.

The confident young girl is not at all worried about playing the antagonist on the show. According to her, “It is indeed the negative lead role. But what matters is the way in which an actor gets into the role and portrays it. And I am happy with the preparations I have done. This is indeed a good beginning for the show and for me in the role.”

Talking about the preparations she had to go through for the role, Suhani avers, “This role is quite adventurous, as I need to hang on to the harness when my chroma portions need to be shot. My look in itself is encouraging. As you must have seen, I have a normal nicely dressed upper half, while the lower portion of my body needs to be draped in a chroma cloth. I look forward to more of dancing in the show, as my role requires that.”

Suhani is equally excited about her present day avatar which will be a welcome change to the audience in the days to come. “I will be wearing stunning outfits in my modern day avatar. Viewers will be surprised after seeing me in this role, after seeing me as the Naagin.”

She has been the one who has pushed me forward to take up acting. In addition to being part of the show, I see to it that I give my dance learning a lot of time. Also, I get my breaks to tutor the students in college.”

This is just the beginning for the girl, and we are sure she has a long way to go!! Way to go, Suhani…
