Mita Vashisth to play the role of Maha Chuchak in Jodha Akbar

Earlier, several actors including Urvashi Dholakia and Meghna Malik had been considered for the role

Maha Chuchak will be shown to be a power-hungry woman, who has her eye on Akbar’s throne. Says Mita, “I have been told she has a reference in history. The character is completely unsual and I am looking forward to playing it. She will come in as major antagonist creating trouble in Akbar’s life.”

Mita, however, is waiting for a detailed narration from producer Ekta Kapoor for the role. “I will be meeting her soon. Ekta is very good at giving the finer nuances, the tone and rhythm of the character. I remember when I played Trishna in Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii, it was after Ekta gave a clue to the character, that I took off,” says Mita, who has already played characters with grey shades in the past.

Maha Chuchak will however be her first stong negative character. “I like the large vision they are giving to the character,” smiles the actor who had played a seductive siren in Swabhimaan and recently shot for an episode of Encounter, where she is essaying a powerful role that of the head of a family based in Bihar, known for their underworld activities. “I was told that when they conceived the role, they thought of me. I enjoyed playing the role, only wish they had given me the script a few days in advance so that I would have got the Bihari accent right and the performance would have been a few notches above,” says the veteran actor.
