She’s most popular as Mihir’s ladylove and Ishita’s lovely sister in Yeh Hai Mohabbatein

Mihika Verma is very happy with her Star Plus show Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, and why not the babe who is seen as Mihika Iyer, Ishita’s (Divyanka Tripathi) adorable cousin sister has moved over playing a vamp on small screen.In a candid chat to BollywoodLife Mihika said, “At first when I signed this Balaji Telefilm production I was excited for this was a change in the sense that till now I had only played negative kamini woman (Viruddh, Kis Desh Mein Hai Meraa Dil and Kitani Mohabbat Hai) Luckily for me the positive reaction has exceeded my expectations. Normally daily show only centres around the leads, but here we have a truly ensemble cast and we all influence the life of the Ishita and Raman . This Ekta Kapoor production has been the second innings for most actors on our project be it me or the leads i.e. Divyanka Tripathi and Karan Patel.”

The actor who has portrayed negative characters on screen added, “Although that there is sizeable audience which loves stuff what we don’t like yet, if those some guys are also appreciating Yeh Hai Mohabbatein it shows that they too want change but not at the cost of entertainment. And our show has all the ingredients that a good concept needs. I would say that is a good bed time story for adults.”

So has the show affected the actor personally? “I would always laugh when other actors would talk about internalizing their characters but playing Mihika has brought about a positive change in me as well. She is so out there and will not take shit from anybody, I am becoming the same as well. Ekta chose for this for character saying that I perfectly fit the character. May be that is why she named the character Mihika as well.”

That’s not it Ms Verma also plans to anchor shows in the future,“People say that I am very confident. I am talking to Star for a few such projects.”

She is also game to do something like Bigg Boss, “I am totally Bigg Boss material. And main things since I don’t have any hidden skeleton in my closet I can freely entertain every body else.”

As for fiction she is happy with Yeh Hai Mohabbatein,“It would be tough to do something else as the bar has been set very high. Personally I would like continue with the positive vein I will leave behind negative avtar as people love me in the most as the good girl.”
