New Delhi, Dec 18 (Calcutta Tube) Popular actress Achint Kaur, seen in shows like ‘Banegi Apni Baat’, ‘Swabhimaan’ and ‘Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii’, will now be seen as a feisty queen in Zee TV’s ‘Jhansi Ki Rani’.
Achint, who has also essayed cameos in Bollywood films, has been cast as the sharp and aggressive Rani of Orchha in ‘Jhansi Ki Rani’, and she is upbeat about playing a historical figure and performing stunts.
‘I’m waiting to sink my teeth into this role. The Rani of Orchha is a woman on a mission. She’s a firebrand, even egoistic. I am going to have to wield the sword and perform a lot of stunts,’ Achint said in a press statement.
‘This is the first time I’ll be doing an epic historical drama and I love the sheer detailing that has gone into bringing alive the magic of that period. I love the sets, the clothes, the jewellery and the work… It’s like getting into a time-machine and going all the way back to a bygone era that one had only read about in history books,’ she added.
‘Jhansi Ki Rani’ airs Monday-Friday.
