Actress Aakanksha Singh's absence from the small screen has certainly be a long one, and the fans of her most popular show, Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha co-starring Kunal Karan Kapoor cannot wait for her to make a comeback.
But, the best part is that Aakanksha has infact been more active than ever, and is is actually going places with her choice of work. The viewers saw her last year in blockbuster film, Badrinath Ki Dulhania and also made her Tollywood film debut with the film, Malli Raava.
Now, she is spreading her wings and is all set to make her debut in the Kannada film industry too.
Yes! That's right. Aakanksha will be making her sandalwood debut with upcoming film titled Phailwan co-starring Karnataka superstar, Sudeep.
The film is about a boxer and a wrestler and Aakanksha will be playing the female lead.
We got in touch with her to know further. We asked her on how did the film happen to her, to which she said, "I just got a random call from the producers itself for this film. As I am not familiar with Kannada film industry, I cross-checked with my friend Shanvi who is from the same industry about it, and she said 'Yes, you can't let it go, do it.' So, I went for a meeting and it happened."
About the character, she said, "I am super excited about it as the role has two different shades in the film. It's not a shade or one layer-character and that's what making it challenging."
We wish Aakanksha all the best.
