Abhishek Rawat, essays the character of Manav
‘Kaamnaa’ is a show that will find an audience in everybody because the story and the characters are very real. It is a story of a common man. And that is one reason that drew me towards this show. The beauty of the show lies in the characters who have different ideologies and how they deal with it as a family when put in realistic situations. Portraying Manav has been an utmost joy. I am glad the creators believed in me for bringing Manav’s character to life and I am sure the viewers will instantly form a connect with him. Hope the audience enjoy watching the show.”
Chandni Sharma, essaying the character of Akanksha
“I am very fortunate to have gotten this opportunity to play a character who is outspoken and strong willed, that resonates with the millennials who dare to dream, and believe that there is nothing wrong in wanting a comfortable lifestyle. I understand my character Akanksha’s mindset because we are similar in many ways. Akanksha is a woman who aspires to do a lot more but must let go of it because of her husband’s middle-class values. It’s a story of real people and I am sure that viewers must have also faced this predicament in their own lives at some point. Can’t wait to see what the audience have to say.”
