The talented and gorgeous Adaa Khan who is
seen playing the role of Amrit in Rajan Shahi's popular daily soap Amrit
Manthan on Life OK talks about her shows, the characters she plays, her
journey in this industry and much more.
Let's have a look on what she said...
How is it playing the role of Adaa?
is a very challenging role and I get to play many shades in one show
itself. The lead actress in many show does not get to play so many
shades in one show, and I am thankful to Rajan sir for giving me the
opportunity to play the role of Amrit. It is a very strong character and
I enjoy playing it.
How did you get this role?
Rajan sir had seen my
performance in Behenen and when the show got over I had gone to give the
audition for Rajanji's show Havan as a main lead and that is when Rajan
sir told me not to audition for Havan as he had something else in mind
for me. I waited and as the saying goes that patience pays off well
stood true for me. After the show Havan went off air, Rajan sir came up
with Amrit Manthan
which was in process even before Havan got over but
eventually it went on air after Havan. He sais he always had me in mind
to play the role of Amrit and here I am.
Well, this is a question that Rajan sir would be able to answer very well. I
believe that he must have had seen something in me and hence he told me
to play the character of Amrit.
How did acting happen to you?
take life as it comes and before getting into television I used to do
modelling. I have shot for many print advertisements. From then my
friend suggested me that I should get into television and hence my
pictures got circulated in this industry and I got my first show
Palanpur Express which aired on Sony. That show's cast soon changed but
it was a learning experience for me. Later, I got Behenein
which was a
fantastic show. The character that I played of Aakashi was a very strong
character. Amrit Manthan
is yet another fabulous show with a strong
headed character of Amrit which has many shades all in one.
If you would not be an actor, you wold be?Your thoughts on the television industry?
I would complete my masters in Psychology and continue in the same field.
is a lot of hard work to be put in this industry but I feel that your
luck works the most in this industry. If you are lucky enough than you
can survive in this industry. In movies, acting matters a lot but in
television if the story and the show is a hit, then you are a hit.
Would you want to get into films?
Well I have been getting
good offers for films too but for now I am very happy with television.
I enjoy what I am doing right now so I would love to stick to this for
now but surely in future I would do want to do films.
Your definition of acting?
Acting for me is a pleasure. I
love acting, you get to become someone else all together when you play a
character. It is like portraying emotions of a different person. You
can simply take my example in Amrit Manthan
where Adaa Khan
in real life
is totally oppose to Amrit onscreen. Also acting for me is a mind
diversion in a way. When I get into my character I forget my real life,
which somewhere gives me relief sometimes.How would you differentiate between Aakshi from Behenein and Amrit from Amrit Manthan?
both are totally opposite characters. Akashi was a strong character who
would fight for her rights and would never get underestimated and give
back to the people who mistreat her but so also was very positive. Amrit
is different than Aakashi, Amrit is also a very strong character but is
very negative. She has now turned out to be positive but you never know
when she flips back and turns negative again. The best part playing
both the characters is that they are strong which is a positive message
to the women nowadays. Gone are the days when the women used to not
fight back. Women power is a must these days and each woman should learn
to be strong."
The characters you wish to play?
I love Jhansi Ki
Rani and hence one day would love to play that character onscreen. I
also have seen the show Jhansi Ki Rani which aired on Zee TV, and it was
simply superb. But well my mother always wanted me to pay a romantic
role so I am happy to have fulfilled my mother's wish first.
Who inspires you in this industry?
I was never
prepared for this industry and it was my mom who inspired me to go
ahead. I thank her for everything and for all that I am today. All of
this has been possible because of my mother.
The production house you wish to work with?
With god's grace I have worked with best of the producers so far so I am very happy and have no such choices
An ongoing show you would want to be a part of?
I would like to be a part of Zee TV's show Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke as I
follow that show and love it too. I would also like to do the dance
reality show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa. I am a non-dancer and I have seen the
way the choreographers make the celebrities learn different dance forms
hence I would want to try on dancing.
Adaa Khan in few sentences?
I am an introvert at times and
a fun loving person who totally loves good people's company. I am very
choosy when it comes to making friends but when I make someone my friend
I see to it that I continue the relation on a good pace. I also like to
enjoy life to the fullest.A message for your fans?
A big thank you to all my fans for their support and love and I wish they continue to give me the same (smiles).Krishma Solanki.
