Wish I had the powers of a vish-kanya, off-screen as well: Adaa Khan

Known for her ‘anokhi adaayein’, gorgeous model lead telly-actress Adaa Khan has to her credit a string of popular TV shows including ‘Pardes Mein Hai Mera Dil’, ‘Piya Basanti Re’ and of course the iconic ‘Naagin and its sequel. Currently, the adventurous Adaa (she loves travelling) is featuring in an ongoing popular weekdays daily TV show ‘Vish Ya Amrit: Sitaara’ on Colors in the 10.30 pm slot. The Afternoon D&C cornered the bubbly Adaa for a conversation. Excerpts:

What is unique about your new fantasy-genre Colors TV show?
Vish Ya Amrit: Sitaara produced by Rashmi Sharma is a stunning, visually classy recreation of the Vishakanya folklore that existed since ancient times. With high-octane drama, multi-layered emotions and a mesmerizing narrative, our show has superior quality VFX effects. Its definitely different from my previous supernatural TV shows I have done earlier.That’s because I hate being ‘stereotyped’.

Share with us the ‘khaasiyat’ of your title-role character?
They have cast me in the titular role of Sitaara who is a young stylish yet simple girl who misses her mother and is now being raised single-handedly by her doting father. Bound by morals and good values, gradually, she begins to explore her supernatural powers. Circumstances force her to ‘choose’ between the good or evil powers. There will always be a curiosity among the viewers as to which option Sitaara would select in a given situation.

What compelled you to accept the titular role in this show?
I love portraying such challenging fictitious yet dramatic, dynamic characters as they excite me a lot. As a ‘wish-kanya’, I always ‘wish’ to entertain home-audiences. ( laughs). The narrative of this gripping show will transcend the viewers in to a mystical world of the Vishkanyas, which is historical folklore that many are unaware of.

What's your take on so many supernatural-fantasy-centric TV shows that are currently being aired?
TV shows based on the subject of fantasy or a supernatural theme instantly transport  home-viewers into an orbit full of folk-lore fables and childhood tales. People enjoy watching these intriguing folklore tales with VFX effects because they serve as cool entertainers.

Don’t you have ego-clashes with your other ‘vish-kanya’ glam co-actresses on the sets?
Bilkul nahin. The entire cast is more like an extended family with warm camaraderie. From eating together to discussing scenes, we also try and work on bonding our friendships.

Off-screen, if you acquired similar ‘magical powers’, how would you use the same?
Hmm, I wish it was true (smiles). Being a very positive person, I will try to eradicate all the negativity from this world and convert it into positivity. By using supernatural powers, a person can nullify evil adversities. With such power comes a huge responsibility.(shrugs).
