Zee TV’s fiction show Main Hoon Aparajita which focuses on the journey of Aparajita (played by famous actress Shweta Tiwari), a doting mother of 3 daughters, preparing them for the rollercoaster called life after her ex-husband Akshay (Manav Gohil) finds love outside of the marriage with Mohini (Shweta Gulati). In the recent episode viewers recently witnessed how Akshay got in trouble because of his daughter Chhavi’s (Anushka Merchande) boyfriend Veer. And after getting rescued by Aparajita and his daughters from the freezer, Akshay has been hospitalized in a serious condition. While Anushka has her hands full with the hectic shoot schedule, when she manages to take out time, she prefers to do this in her free time.
Anushka has always been an avid reader and while it is hard for actors to take out time for their hobbies due to their busy schedules, Anushka manages to find some time to enjoy her most-cherished possession, books. She is a person who prefers reading fiction, real life, and inspirational stories. In fact, she is so addicted to reading books that you will always find her reading between takes of the shoot. That’s not it, to read when she has free time between shoots, she has added a small bookshelf to her makeup room.
Anushka Merchande shared, "I enjoy reading a good book whenever I have free time. I always feel happy and rejuvenated after reading an interesting novel, regardless of my busy shoot schedule. My collection of books has been growing since I was a child, they really make me cheerful. Honestly, I don't know how many books I own. I love reading books and my home is a testament to my love for books, but, I can say that I have enough to put a bookshelf in my makeup room as well now."
She further adds, “I indulge in a wide range of reading materials from historicals to biographies, health and fiction. If you ask me about my current favourites, they are ‘the Spanish love deception’ by elena armas, ‘twisted love’ by Ana huang and many more. I also love reading novels written by Stephenie Meyer and Colleen hoover. My connection to a book's character is like living another life, and I love it.”
While Anushka is having a gala time reading her favourite books, it will be interesting to watch how Aparajita will deal with her ex-husband Akshay going through memory loss after the accident, will she fall in love with Akshay again? Or Will Mohini turn the tables in her favor to get Akshay back? Only time will reveal.
