Zee TV's show Woh Apna Sa is already gaining the
audiences' attention. The show is different from saas-bahu saga and
that is what is attracting the viewers towards the show. Ridhi has
impressed the audiences with her different shade of role in the
The producer Siddharth P Malhotra convinced Disha Parmar and
Sudeep Sahir, but says it was difficult to cast Ridhi as they
wanted to give her layers! Siddharth was quoted by TOI as saying,
"When Woh Apna Sa's casting was going on, I remember I was at the
gym working out. I met Sudeep Sahir, who kept telling me that we
need to do something good together."
He added, "At that time, the character of Aditya was created,
and I told him that the character is one of the most challenging
characters. Also, lead actors on TV don't get a lot to do. But in
Woh Apna Sa, this hero is there on both sides of coin. So I
explained him the entire graph of the character."
Siddharth had explained about the role (how different it was) to
Disha Parmar, when she they were in Bangkok. He added, "So, the
minute she heard the track and the fact that she's got a lot of
challenges to do, she immediately said yes to it."
He added "Ridhi was the most difficult person to cast, because
we wanted to cast a heroine and give her layers. We wanted somebody
like Kangana Ranaut from Tanu Weds Manu, who is a complex and we
needed a very strong actor. Just one day before we started shooting
the show, Ridhi came to meet me."
He further added that he promised her that this role will be a
landmark in her career and hopes that it does become as she has
done a fabulous job.
