A page from the personal diary of Adaa Khan
Hello everyone, this is Adaa Khan aka Amrit of Life OK’s Amrit Manthan narrating something about me, an interesting read for my loyal fans on Tellychakkar.com.
I had never in my life decided that I will get into acting. I was once in my friends Café chilling out and a guy happened to approach me for a print ad. This was my first appearance that is in the print ad of Pantaloons.
Then I started doing many more print and commercial ads. My first appearance on television was in Palampur Express as parallel lead on Sony Entertainment Television. Acting on camera and doing print ads are two different things and since I was very fresh to television it so happened that I got scolded by my director many times. But, now I realize the importance of his scolding because it helped me to grow every single day.
After Palampur Express, I got to work as Akashi in Behenein on Star Plus. When the show got off air, I was never out of work as I did many commercial ads. After a long gap I got a call for Amrit in Amrit Manthan. And after getting this role, I felt relieved as it washed away all my pain.
To come to such a platform where people appreciate your work more than your looks, is a great feeling on its own. I am saying this because I know how people hate negative characters of television; they wish that the character dies but I have received quite a lot of wishes and blessings from audience for my negative character of Amrit. There are people who say that they wait desperately for my appearance in Amrit Manthan.
Whatever I am today is because of my mother Pravin Khan’s prayers and blessings. I have always been very lucky in the kind of work that has come my way.
The most memorable moment on the sets of Amrit Manthan was when a leopard family of four came to visit our sets. We (as in Waseem Mushtaq, Dimple Jhangiani and I) were so busy taking pictures of the animals instead of getting scared. In fact, many news channels turned up to cover the news. This was when one of the leopards snapped the camera of the Aaj Tak reporter. It was the most thrilling experience on sets so far.
To tell you more about myself, I am a very strong headed girl, and would love see myself in shows which involve lot of thrill and excitement. But my mother wishes that I get offered more of the romantic roles. She has this feeling that my husband does not like me in any of my shows, so I should pick up a romantic role in the near future.
This is it from my side, folks!! I will be back next time with yet another interesting chapter from my life.
