Sheena Bajaj: I'm learning Urdu for my role in 'Mariyam Khan' by watching Pakistani plays

Actress Sheena Bajaj is all set for the new show Mariyam Khan – Reporting Live on Star Plus. She is playing the role of Mehar, the eldest daughter in the family. 

While interacting with Star Dhamaka about her role in details Sheena says, "This role is special as I have been offered to play the younger sister but I chose Meher's role as the role has more shades. Meher is pursuing law and she wants to help her family financially. She speaks less and she is very composed and reserved but when she wants to establish her point she does that convincingly. Meher has a certain etiquette which I am very particular about while in front of the camera. An actor's life is about portraying roles which they are not in real life and that's why I find Meher's character quite challenging. I am really pushing the envelope for this. I have to speak an Urdu dialect, for that, I have been watching few plays from Pakistan. And also my onscreen parents are being played by Rukhsar and Khalid Siddiqui. They are giving me tips." 

Speaking about the look of Meher the gorgeous actress adds,"Meher has a simple look. I am hardly applying any makeup. There is a touch of reality to Meher which is noticeable. Meher will be seen in attired in Kurtas from Lucknow, jeans and tops. To relate my role and the look I am wearing a lot of simple clothes in real life. Meher is just opposite of Sheena."
