During the trailer launch of the show “Haq Se” here on Wednesday, she was asked whether getting an opportunity in an ALTBalaji production was an easy ride for her since she is Ekta’s niece. Though the question made her look very uncomfortable, Ekta tried to give an explanation.
Giving an explanation on how she is a big supporter of talent, Ekta said: “First time I saw her audition that came from director Imtiaz Ali for ‘Laila Majnu‘ (an upcoming film). Since she did not look like the character, I said no to her and then I mentioned to Imtiaz that she is my niece. Later Rhea (Kapoor) showed me Anchal’s audition for ‘Veere Di Wedding’ and said that she is ‘outstanding’. However, this time she fits the part so I cast her in the show.”
The evening was graced by director Ken Ghosh, actor Rajeev Khandelwal, Rukhsar, Simon Singh and Pavail Gulati, among others. The show “Haq Se” will soon be streaming on ALTBalaji app and the website.
