Vikrant will be sharing screen space with Rutpanna Aishwarya and Amika Shail in the upcoming anthology.

Speaking about his character, Vikrant shared: “I essay the role of Karthik who is a caring and doting husband. But then, as the story progresses, you get to see other shades of his character. The whole agenda is to break societal taboos, and we tried to do the same with this story. So it fits in the real world, it is practical and relatable.”

‘Hai Taubba 3’ will focus on women and will be about women who refuse to abide by societal norms and decide to break out of their monotonous lives to live the lives they truly desire. The other segments of the series will star ‘Paurashpur’ actress Poulomi Das, ‘Splitsvilla’ fame Arshiya Arshi, Aabha Paul and others.

The character of Tokyo is played by actress Ursula Corbero.

“I think I’d be Tokyo because I would like to believe that I have some of her good qualities. I think we both are spontaneous. I am a little badass, and yeah, she knows what she wants,” says Ananya.

However, her favourite character is Denver in the show, which is currently in its fifth season and streaming on Netflix.

“My first favourite is Denver (Jaime Lorento Lopez) , because he’s super hot, and I love his personality and I love his laugh. I love Nairobi (Alba Florez) because I think she is so badass and a strong woman,” says Ananya.

Ananya will soon be seen in ‘Liger’ alongside Vijay Deverakonda.

“Ganesh Chaturthi connects me with my grandmother as when we were kids, my grandmother would do all the preparation for the Ganpati pooja, and she use to involve us (me and my brother) to set up the flowers and to make chandan,” revealed Shilpa remembering her late grandmother.

However, coming to the present time, the ‘Ghungroo’ singer makes sure to have an eco-friendly idol at her place every year.

“My Ganpati idol is eco-friendly every year, I attempt to get a clay murti which have no paint or colour on it, which is water soluble and we can easily do the Visarjan at home. Infact, I’m always looking for an idol that has seed in it or a sapling so when you put it in a pot it grows into a plant,” Shilpa informed.

The singer also urged everyone to support small local businesses especially during festival times.

“I would urge everyone to support small business including small sweet makers too, we need to support them,” she said.
