I feel a special connect with Gujarat: Aasiya Kazi

Shruti Jambhekar, TNN | Aug 21, 2011, 12.00AM IST

She looks like the girl next-door and got popular enacting the role of Santo in the popular show Bandini. Her simplicity and plain looks actually makes the viewers connect with her and she likes it that way.

Aasiya Kazi is a happy woman these days as she is enacting a new role in the soap Dharmapatni on Imagine TV. She was in Ahmedabad to promote the show and Aasiya came across as a very warm and sweet girl to talk to when we chatted with her. 

Like her on-screen image, Aasiya is a quiet person in real life too. We ask her about her role in the serial and she says, "I play a small town girl named Kastur. She is deeply connected with family and firmly believes in following the duties of a good wife." Interestingly, this is her consecutive project where she is a part of a show revolving around Gujarati culture. We ask her if she feels a Gujarati connect and she replies, "Now I know most of the Gujarati rituals very well. I can also speak a little bit of Gujarati. I feel a special connection with Gujarat and I enjoy everything related to the Gujarati culture." 

For Aasiya, Bandini was a luck-by-chance project. She says, "I just gave audition for the role and got selected! And it was an amazing opportunity to work with Ektaji's production house with a great cast and crew." And Aasiya has left no stone unturned in making her dream come true. She says, "I did pursue acting and dance classes. I try to work hard to put an effort on learning the Gujarati accent as well." Aasiya is pursuing her studies in arts - her favourite subject being political science. She is however not able to continue it at a stretch because of her shooting schedules. She says "Everytime I think of getting back to studies, there is some work opportunity that I get. Post Bandini, I thought of taking up studies and that's when Maati Ki Banno got me busy and now I am doing Dharmapatni." 

Reality shows excite this 19-year-old actress. She says, "I would love to do a dance-based reality show. I was chosen for Khatron Ke Khiladi 4, but my schedule with Maati Ki Banno made me skip the show." In her free time, Aasiya loves to "catch up on beauty sleep as shooting schedules exhaust me. I like spending time with my family." About Ahmedabad, Aasiya says on a parting note, "I love Gujaratis. They are very affectionate people."
