Raashi Khanna says she was shocked when she got a ‘strong girl’ role in a Karan Johar production: ‘It’s not like aayi aur chali gayi’
Actor Raashi Khanna, who was recently seen in the web series Farzi, has opened up about her next film, Yodha, which is bankrolled by Dharma Productions. The actor, who is paired opposite Sidharth Malhotra, opened up about her character in Yodha and said that it is “one of those strong roles.”
In an interview with Pinkvilla, Raashi said, “With Yodha, it is again one of the most amazing characters that I am playing. I never thought I will get such a role in a Dharma film, where it’s strong and she’s a girl. It is one of those strong roles. It’s not like aayi gaayi aur chali gayi. Of course, there are songs and everything. The film has a very good balance.”
Talking about working with Sidharth, the actor said, “Me and Sid look amazing together and I remember we both were watching and I was like ‘hum bohot ache lag rahe hai.’”
Raashi Khanna revealed that she also told Karan Johar about wanting to be a ‘typical’ Dharma heroine who wears a saree. She said, “When I was growing up, films for me were glossy with women wearing saree.”
Directed by Sagar Ambre and Pushka Ojha, Yodha also stars Disha Patani. The film is all set to release in September 2023.
