Raashii Khanna, who plays a government employee in the forthcoming Vijay Sethupathi and Shahid Kapoor web series “Farzi,” thinks many women would be able to identify with the struggles her character endures on a daily basis in both her professional and personal life.
Shedding light on her character, Raashii told IANS: “My character of Megha is that of a modern girl in a patriarchal set-up. We talk about equality and feminism but still, a woman has to struggle a lot in her professional and personal space. She struggles in her personal space with her mother in the series.”
Raashii Khanna also said that the audience can’t help but feel sorry for her because of how hard she works to get what she wants.
“You feel sorry for her because she is very determined. If she wants something, she gets it no matter what, and that shows in the way she treats her job and her bosses. She is not black and white to me because she doesn’t care about rules, regulations, and the law,”
The actress believes the character would powerfully connect with women everywhere because of the ongoing struggle against patriarchy that controls the functioning of contemporary society.
“She is in a way similar to me and I learnt a lot while playing this character and I must say that a lot of women will relate to Megha and her struggles,”
Raashii Khanna concluded.
