Niki Walia

Mumbai, July 19, 2017 (Online News India): STAR Plus’ upcoming offering Ishq Gunaah is a new experience in many aspects from the storyline to the cast, and from the production value to the overall look and feel. Actors Sanjay Kapoor and Niki Walia are making their return on TV after long hiatuses.

The show is an unconventional and mature offering for the audiences who are exposed to the international content. Ishq Gunaah is the Indian remake of the Turkish show Ask-I-Memnu and is produced by Vikram Bhatt.

Niki Walia in the show plays the lead antagonist and is quite excited to be a part of the show. Niki, who is settled abroad has come here for a year, leaving her family behind in the UK, for this show. The actress had gone to the UK after her wedding and had not done TV ever since. She was last seen in Shandaar.

When asked about how she got the role, she said “I had to legitimately audition for this character. Last year, I had messaged a few of my close friends from the industry that I was looking out for work – either movies or TV. However, my only criteria for television was that it had to be either as good as or better than my last show, which became a cult in itself. A friend of mine got back with Laila’s brief and I was overwhelmed! However, he told me that I was needed to audition. I was taken aback for a second, but then he told me that it was now the protocol! And so I agreed! However, things did not materialize for a long time, and I had almost lost hope, and had turned over a new chapter when the team got back and told me that they really wanted me for the show.”

Niki also consulted her family and all of them encouraged her to give it a shot! Niki is highly loved on the sets of the show, and gels really well with the co-actors. With such a stellar cast, the audience can surely expect a lot of interesting content!
