Paridhi Sharma, who is currently seen as Jodha in the show 'Jodha Akbar', recently spoke to us about the nuances of playing a historical character and how the comparisons with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan have only encouraged her.

Comparisons with Aishwarya feel nice

Ever since I started playing Jodha, I have been getting a lot of compliments. I'm really happy and I feel blessed that people are appreciating me. I knew that people would compare me with Aishwarya (who played Jodhaa in the movie Jodhaa Akbar). I mean, from the beginning of my career, I am being compared to an iconic personality like Aishwarya.

I've even been called Madhubala
People have come and told me, 'You look better than Aishwarya'. People have even compared me to Madhubala. It feels great that my hard work has paid off.

Lot of hard work to do a historical show
The sets of the show are in Karjat, near Mumbai, so we have to stay there. Apart from that, I have to wear this heavy jewellery and attire which is quite a task. You have to learn so much. I trained in martial arts, sword fighting and horse-riding. It's quite different from what daily soap actors do. But at the end of the day, the show is giving you so much, so you have to make that sacrifice. In fact, it's been really long since I have been to my hometown Indore to meet my family. But whenever my parents get time, they come to visit the set.

I've had my share of struggles
Since childhood; I've had a passion towards art - painting and dance. After completing my MBA from Pune, I realized that marketing was not my cup of tea. When people would ask me 'Why marketing', the answers I would give were not from my heart. Mujhe bahut fake interviews dene pad rahe thay. I found acting to be the best medium to portray myself. I went to Mumbai, started struggling, and meanwhile, also did a lot of theatre.

Would love to do a dance reality show
I have had formal training in Kathak. In Kathak, you have to portray lots of expressions and emotions. It has helped me in acting. If given a chance, I would love to do a dance reality show.

Family is supportive
My parents were quite supportive when I decided to enter TV. Even my husband is quite supportive
