Zee TV's historical show Jodha Akbar is winning the hearts of the audiences through the performance of its actors and its always pleasing to watch beautiful scenes of Jodha (Paridhi Sharma) and Akbar (Rajat Tokas) in the show. While many actors have been praised for their acting skills, once such actress who has won an award for her exceptional negative stint is Ashwini Kalsekar. She has efficiently portrayed the character of Maham Anga.

With the recent tack of Maham Anga's death, we ask Ashwini her journey in the show, experience with the team, about problems she faced while shooting and much more in conversation with us...

I am inspired by this lady Mahamanga - The character of Maham Anga has really touched my heart, I think I will take time to get over this lady. After essaying her character I have developed a curiosity to read about her. She was a very intelligent and strong lady, she always took firm decisions.

My daily routine was to travel for five hours - Yeah actors face problems when they do a historical show. I learned Urdu for this show because if you don't deliver dialogues properly it will go wrong also the costumes which we wear in the show are not so easy to carry during shooting. I used to travel from Malad to Karjat daily which took me hours to reach on the sets. I had to wake up early in the morning by 5 AM for the shoot initially as it was difficult to travel but later I got used to traveling. I think all this hard work was worth for this show because I would not have experienced things like this in any other show.

Production people have pampered me a lot - My journey in the show has been very beautiful, production people have pampered me a lot and I am going to face difficulties while working with other production house in future. I bonded closely with the co-actors and I this the success credit goes to the entire team."

Glad to receive appreciation for my work from Bollywood people - I was glad to receive an appreciation from my friends for my performance in the show and so I was always conscious about my scenes. I always tried to give my best because I knew that people out there are watching me. I have enjoyed a lot while essaying this character.

Some moments to be missed: I cannot tell you now about the moments  which I will miss but I will obviously remember some moments after some time when I will watch my scenes again.

I want to travel somewhere : I will take a break for now. I want to travel somewhere with my friends.
