Aahana Kumra: Working with Amitabh Bachchan in Yudh was like going on a Tirtha Yatra

The theatre actor is making her small screen debut as Amitabh Bachchan’s daughter on Sony TV’s Yudh

Aahana Kumra who was last seen in Anup Kurian’s The Blueberry Hunt and Makrand Deshpande’s Sona Spa, is super excited about sharing screen space with Big B, Sarika, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Kay Kay Menon.

When queried about her character, she said, “I play Mr Bachchan’s daughter who is an oncologist. She is a very serious person in life, who prefers to keep to her work and studies. One day, she comes to know that her dad is not her biological father. That’s when her life gets complicated.”

Aahana says that she can’t believe her luck and that it’s a dream come true to work with Mr. Bachchan. “I never thought in my wildest dream that I would get a chance to work with Mr Amitabh Bachchan, that too so early in my career. Working him with for almost a year and playing a character which is so close to him is like going on a tirtha yatra (pilgrimage). I am still very dazed.” Guess it was Ahana’s lucky time.

Ribhu Dasgupta has directed the show; filmmaker Anurag Kashyap is the creative director and Shoojit Sircar is the creative consultant of Yudh. The show is expected to on air by sometime this month.
