Monica Khanna, is an actress who does not believe in getting typecast. And after playing modern, flamboyant as well as negative roles in her earlier shows, she is now essaying the role of a demure positive housewife in Zee TV's Aaj Ki Housewife Hai.. Sab Jaanti Hai.

Talking about her role, the actress says, "Neelam is somebody who loves to be a housewife. Hence when her mother-in-law asks her to share the household chores with Sona (Suhasi Dhami), she does not know what to do with her spare time."

Personally Monica believes that, "There are still women like Neelam in the society who choose to take care of their house as opposed to going outside and working. Having said this, there are many educated women in small towns who are compelled to stay at home, which can take a toll on their psyche."

In real life Monica is totally opposite to Neelam. "I am outspoken and very confident. My friends are surprised when they see my character. They say if I would have offered my future husband food and he refused to take it, I am such a person who will never request him for the second time to eat, as Neelam does."

Monica who is a model from Delhi says, "I was pleasantly surprised when I was offered such a role, as prior to this I was offered many negative lead roles wherever I auditioned. I used to get a feedback that my face does not suit the good Indian woman role. Hence when I was offered this character, I could not believe my luck and kept asking my creatives whether I would be able to pull it off . But I guess I always had it in me; I am now getting rave reviews from my family and friends. They wonder how I manage to get into the skin of a character who is very unlike me."

She further informs that, "During shooting hours, I have to completely switch off from being Monica, as at times I tend to show my real-self. If that happens, I usually get reminded by my unit members to remain in my character."

Monica, keep up the good work!!!


She was Karishma in ASA amazing character, Glad she took a different route and tried something which fits her bill Good Luck Monica !

Excerpt :

Monica Khanna, who is seen as Neelam in Housewife Hai Sab Janti Hai on Zee TV, is a trained Salsa dancer and a multi-talented female. She is known for playing negative and vampish roles with aplomb. And this is the first time that she is essaying the character of a sympathetic housewife in a show.

she unwinds her journey to stardom and more.

"Well, I am a Delhite and a trained Salsa dancer. Initially I always wanted to get into choreography. But it so happened that once during a visit to Mumbai, I appeared for auditions for a few roles. Eventually, I bagged Aasman Se Aage among many more. I am more of a flamboyant and chirpy person. My parents knew from the very beginning that I was not a kind of person to do 9 to 6 job. I was a kind of an entertainer in my family. May be that's why I got into acting. In fact, I never really had planned to become an actor."

Loved her work as Karishma, The beauty of this show is it groomed the characters in a positive way and intelligently made for good scaled audience.
