Queen time for Rishina Kandhari!


Actress Rishina Kandhari has bagged the role of a begum in a show called Akbar Rakt Se Takt Taak. She shares,”My last show was Diya Aur Baati Hum where I was playing a dabbang police officer Arpita Khanna. After its success I wanted to do something different, Akbar is very different in every manner. Firstly it’s not a saas bahu show and secondly I wanted to do a role which was challenging and had some different edge to it.”

She’s playing Hamida who was Humayun’s wife and Akbar’s mother. “She was a dignified lady and after the death of her husband she took over the Mughal dynasty and was always on the move which she called siyasati daure (political tours),” she says. Rishina is going to don a very gorgeous avtaar in the show. “My costumes are totally opposite of what I wore in my last show. Our stylist has given me gorgeous looking Mughal lehenga and blouse with beautiful work and beautiful jewellery. After my make up I look so elegant that one feels like the queen of the world. The feedback for my role is superb”, she added.
