If there may be one factor The Empire has achieved, it’s showcasing the expertise of its girls actors. Sahher Bambba was assured in her portrayal of Babur’s spouse, Maham Begum, as she joined Shabana Azmi and Drashti Dhami on the collection. “The girls within the present are so highly effective. That’s a rarity. Sharing the body with Shabana Azmi was intimidating, however she taught me that it’s alright to really feel butterflies in your abdomen earlier than a shot,” says the actor.
While it has been a tricky climb after her debut movie Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas (2019) bombed on the field workplace, Bambba just isn’t deterred. She has bagged one other Disney+ Hotstar present — Those Pricey Thakur Girls, based mostly on Anuja Chauhan’s e book of the identical title. “Habib Faisal was directing the present; that’s what made me check for it. I did a few [auditions] that took over a month. Habib sir wished to make certain of who he’s casting because the lead.”
The drama, set within the ’80s, will see her play newsreader Debjani Thakur, who has excessive ambitions and the grit to understand them. While Faisal helmed the primary a part of the collection, the directorial baton was quickly handed on to Tarun Mansukhani. “The credit score of world-building goes to Habib sir. He was positive of the garments, even the watch I’m carrying on the present. He set the DNA of the character so properly that Tarun sir didn’t take a lot time to adapt when he stepped in.” The makers are eyeing an October release for the collection.
