Zoya will be seen performing the role of an IPS officer in the series. In the exclusive chat with OTT play she speaks about her on-screen character and the show release.
Reacting on how ‘Grahan’ offered to her the actress said, “Well, there are a lot of elements. Ranjan (director of the show) and I had worked earlier in Mukkabaaz and it was the first film for both of us. When I got to know that he’s doing this new project, I got really excited and then I got to know about the story and my character Amrita, who is the IPS officer in the show that intrigued me a lot.”
Explaining about her preparation for the character development, Zoya said, “We had an amazing workshop coach Puja Swaroop, who is a fantastic actor as well and helped us all a lot. Firstly, I had to do a physical prep where I had to learn certain ways to behave and portray a convincing character of Amrita who is an IPS officer.”
She further added, “She is a police officer but then there’s a lot to the show and to her. The main part of the show also explores the father-daughter dynamics between Amrita and her father.”
‘Grahan’ is all set to release on Disney+Hotstar on June 24 and the show follows two interlinked tales in the aftermath of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
