Child actress Roshni Walia, who turns 14 on September 20, says her forthcoming TV show “Yeh Vaada Raha” is the "best birthday gift" she has received.
"It's a very unique show because it has a 19-year-old hero and the female lead, Survi is just nine years old. People are thinking that they must be in a relationship or are friends. But there is nothing like that," Roshni, who has previously appeared in shows like "Main Lakshmi Tere Aangan Ki" and "Bharat Ka Veer Putra - Maharana Pratap", told IANS.
"My role is of a sober, sweet and cute girl, who believes in Ganpati bappa. Because of her, my faith in Ganpati has increased. So, I feel lucky that the show is starting just a day after my birthday. I consider 'Yeh Vaada Raha' as the best birthday gift from god," she added.
Based in Mumbai, "Yeh Vaada Raha", which starts from September 21 on Zee TV, centres around the life of Kartik (Ankush) and Survi (Roshni), who are forced by their destiny and the promise made by Kartik to Survi's father (Pankaj Vishnu) that will keep them together for life.
Talking about his role, Ankush, who has previously appeared in "Gustakh Dil" said: "Kartik is a child at heart and likes to enjoy every moment of his life. He lost his father at a young age and has been brought up by his uncle, Bhau, who is a local don. He obey his commands."
Ankush, who also aspires to be a singer was seen crooning Salim-Sulaiman's song "Shukran allah" at the event.“
"I consider Sonu Nigam as my idol. My first dream was to become a singer actually. But I didn't get much limelight in music. Then I shifted to acting. I hope one day I'll bring out my album. But right now I'm focused on acting," he said“
"Yeh Vaada Raha" will also feature Rinku Karmarkar and Rashmi Gupta.
