Talking about her character, Akshita said, “My character is a very interesting one. I play a widow who does everything that they (widows) are devoid of. Right from consuming sweets, good food, mixing drinks, I am doing it all. I am really enjoying doing this fun character.”
Akshita, who has worked with the likes of Rajesh Khanna in the show ‘Raghukul Reet Sada Chali Aayi” considers Barrister Babu a path-breaker in today’s times.
She is extremely glad to have been associated with producer Shashi Sumit. “She makes us feel home on the set. Right from taking care of every artist to the minutest thing on the set, she is completely involved in every aspect. I’m honoured to have been associated with her,” says the Ikyawann actor.
