Mumbai: Rukhsar, who was recently seen in Tumhari Paakhi, is working in yet another Rajan Shahi production, Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya.

Rukhsar plays the role of Anjali Purohit, the mother of the lead character in the show, Raj (played by Mishkat Verma).


Rukhsar says playing Anjali has been a pleasure: “This is a well-educated, polished woman with an open mind,” Rukhsar says.

“The character is something new for me and I feel there is a lot of scope for me to perform. I am enjoying this stint.”

Rukhsar adds that she wouldn’t describe her character as being either “positive” or “negative”. “I’d say she is a modern Marwari woman.”

About what makes her “look” in the show special, she says, “I get to wear beautiful saris for the show, which I don’t do off screen.”

She also tells us that playing mom to Mishkat’s character on the show means that he has to frequently touch her feet and ask for her blessing — something Rukhsar was very uncomfortable with at first.

“It used to make me feel very awkward, but now I’ve gotten used to it,” she says, with a smile.

Rukhsar has been juggling her film and television commitments (her latest Bollywood project is the Aamir Khan-starrer P.K. — she doesn’t disclose much about her role) and says each medium has its own challenges and advantages.

“TV has given me so much. I could never leave television for films. I love working in both mediums,” she says.
