After her failed stint in Bollywood, actress Aamna Shariff returns to television with a new show Honge Judaa Na Hum. The pretty actress had started her acting career with the serial Kahiin Toh Hoga a decade ago, and made for a hot pair with co-star Rajeev Khandelwal.
The duo is still remembered as Kashish and Sujal, the characters they portrayed. After that surprisingly, Aamna had vanished from the small-screen, except for an appearance in one episode of Deal Ya No Deal hosted by Rajeev.
“It took an entire year for people to get over my image as Kashish and accept me as Aamna,” says the actress who decided to try her luck in films then. However, her big screen outings which included Aloo Chaat and Aao Wish Karein, did not find any takers. What went wrong, we ask?
“Nothing went wrong. I look at them as experiences. Everyone needs to grow. Having said that, I will be more careful in choosing my future projects,” says Aamna who was slated to make a TV comeback with another show, Pyaar Ki Naukri. “I had only heard the script, hadn’t signed it,” she clarifies.
For her comeback, Aamna was particular about doing a romantic show only. “I’m a romantic person at heart and was looking for a love story. Honge Judaa Na Hum has all the elements I could ask for. It’s an intense love story, there is emotional drama as well as a comic angle,” gushes the actor, who plays Muskaan, a contemporary girl madly in love with Rohan essayed by Raqesh Vashisth.
Aamna in the past has been linked with her first co-star Rajeev and was later rumoured to be dating Aftab Shivdasani, who acted with her in Aao Wish Karein. Ask her about her love life and Aamna says she never discusses her personal life. “The day I find a person who I want to spend my life with, I will open up,” she smiles.
