The character of Durga in Zee’s Maayka undergoes yet another actor switch. Aruna Irani portrayed the negative mother in law in the show, but due to the clash of dates the Naagin producer decided to opt out of it.


While Shoma Anand of the Hum Paanch fame swept in as the new Durga, and has hit the small screens yet again with her charming persona, but this time only more with negative shades.

“I am looking forward to play a negative character on TV” says Shoma. “I have done negative in my younger days, but that was mainly on the big screen, and here on Indian television, I was tagged as someone who can just do comic roles. With Durga I plan to break that image and show different sides of being an actor.”

With Durga changed for the third time, Shoma promises to bring in a touch of her own to the character. “Aruna is a fabulous actress, I have always admired her. She brought in some wonderful elements o the character, and I do plan to bring in a few of mine own. As it’s a Punjabi negative character, I plan to work on it and bring the best out of it.”

Tune into Maayka to catch Shoma Anand in a completely new avatar, coming up soon.
