"I take life as it comes." - Adaa Khan
We got in touch with Adaa Khan on her journey in this industry...
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?
It 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.
Do you think that Rajan Shahi has done a perfect choice for the character of Amrit?
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?
I 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?
I would complete my masters in Psychology and continue in the same field.
Your thoughts on the television industry?
There 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?
They 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).
