Paridhi Sharma as Jodha
Paridhi sharma is currently seen playing a prominant role of Jodha in the popular show Jodha Akbar. The actress, who made her debut as a supporting actress in TV show, Ruk Jaana nahi which was aired on star plus, is playing a lead role in the period love-story of Mughal emperor Akbar and his Hindu wife Jodha.
For Jodha, Ekta reveals, "I wanted someone who possesses the radiance and dignity of the Rajput princess . I'm told Jodha was someone whose eyes conveyed humility, simplicity, courage and conviction. Paridhi embodies everything I had in mind for Jodha. When Paridhi stood there in Jodha's bridal finery and delivered some of her lines, I knew the role belonged to her!."
Paridhi said "Landing Jodha's role is a dream come true. To begin with, the fact that it's a lead role in an Ekta Kapoor production ... on a popular channel like Zee TV ... add to that the fact that I'm playing a famous historical figure in a lavish period drama ... Could I possibly ask for more?"
She added, "I know the expectations are sky high and I have a tough task ahead....but I know I'll strive hard, work my strengths to my advantage and deliver."
Ever since she has started playing an iconic character of Jodha, She has been getting a lot of compliments. She feels happy and blessed for getting so much appreciation and love. She is also compared with Aishwarya Rai(who played Jodhaa in the movie Jodhaa Akbar). Paridhi have even compared to Madhubala. She feels great as her hard work has finally paid off.
