She’s the bold and bindaas babe in Sanjeeda Sheikh starrer Ek Hasina Thi
The hot and sexy Kishwar Merchant is quite happy with her character in Star Plus show Ek Hasina Thi. After all, her character of Raima is not ordinary. She is complex and layered. This TV hottie even doubles up in another avatar as Anarkali in Akbar Birbal and is glad that comic show is faring well. Here’s the leggy lass talking about her roles, TRPs and much more…
Kishwar clearly doesn’t relate to her EHT role, and even confirms this when she says, “Raima Maheshwari is a feisty lady. At one time she is having a torrid affair with her best friend’s Sakshi (Simone Singh) hubby and at the same time she is also helping her out. We have shot scenes where she and Rajnath Goenka (Ayub Khan) are making out in the farm house and Sakshi calls and how Raima takes her calls. At first I was bit scared when I was offered this character but now I am enjoying it. I don’t know how woman in real life can pull of such charades, it is so not me .”
This babe might not understand the reason for her show is not doing well on TRP charts, however she’s one of the rare kinds who doesn’t mind admitting and even discussing it. She says, “That is what we keep talking about on set. Most of our friends in the industry watch Ek Hasina Thi. We also get lots of positive feedback on social media from fans saying that they love the fast paced plot. so I don’t know why we don’t rate. May be our show is more massy as opposed to classy. ”
She does not think that the channel will pull of the show before it’s scheduled one year run,“ I think we are doing very well.”
Besides Ek Hasina Thi, Kishwar is also doing Akbar Birbal on Big Magic. And she’s thrilled to experiment on screen, “Till now I have always said no to historical but I said yes here for two reasons, a it is a historical comedy and the second the entire Anarkali get up is fun.”
The actor points out that as opposed to Ek Hasina Thi, her other show Akbar Birbal is doing very well on the ratings front ,“We have reached 0.35 TVR which is very good for a new channel like Big Magic.”
Well, we hope this sexy lass even manages to find success in both her shows in the coming days.
