Actor Adah Sharma has recently made her debut on the digital platform playing a character Mehek close to herself in the web series The Holiday finds it fun to have male female friendship. Actor Adah Sharma finds herself pretty excited finding a lot of reliability to herself with her character as Mahek. She plays as one of the main protagonists in the recently-released web series, The Holiday. Talking about the same, she said, “This is probably the first role in which I play someone like myself — the half-crazy girl who loves to have fun but knows where to draw the line. I’m happy that I could lend a bit of my personality to this role.”
The Holiday is currently streaming on Zoom Studio, which talks about a story woven around a bachelorette party in Mauritius which the bride-to-be goes on to enjoy with her three best friends who are men (Priyank Sharma, Aashim Gulati and Veer Rajwant Singh). The series is trying to break the gender stereotypes through this story of friendship.
Further adding to her thought about male-female friendship to be fun, she said, “You have Dil Chahta Hai with three men, who are close friends, and Veere Di Wedding is about four girls who are friends. So, this is an unusual bachelorette trip. It shows that male-female friendship can be platonic and fun,” says Sharma, who was selected for the role after the producers saw her rather entertaining make-up tutorial parody she’d done for a promotion. In her upcoming film Man to Man, the 27-year-old plays a woman who has undergone a gender change process. “It’s an interesting but challenging role.”
The actor, who made her Bollywood debut on the big screen with the 2008 horror film 1920, headed on for shooting for The Holiday in 18 days, in her 14-hour schedules. Talking about the same of a popular media platform, she said,“Being on set with just guys was quite crazy. But within a few days, they treated me like one of them. It’s amazing to have four different energies working together. The connection we made on the sets was surprisingly perfect, and I’ve never laughed this much on a set.”
On the work front, Adah Sharma will be next seen in her upcoming projects Commando 3, Bypass Road and Man to Man, apart from the second season of The Holiday.
Sharma, however, had never planned to enter the film industry.
