Reminiscing her childhood days, Malaika shared: “Parents give you direction in life and support you. But our siblings also support us, and that is something we should be happy and proud about.”

Malaika recalled she used to take care of Amrita when their mother was at work.

“From eating to getting her ready to going to school, I would help her do all her work. I still remember Amrita used to go to the washroom in school after taking permission from her teacher on the condition I was present there. She has been like my own child,” said Malaika.

“Now that she has her own kids, she behaves like my older sister, she gives me advice. We share a close and strong bond. We have had our share of days where we would fight, not speak with each other, but she was always the first one to say sorry whether it was her mistake or not,” she added.

Malaika opened up about her bond with her sister during the shoot of Sony Entertainment Television’s show “India’s Best Dancer”.

Earlier, she gave a glimpse of her writing and acting-from-home skills with the short film, “Banana Bread”, directed by Srinivas Sunderajan. She starred in the film with Mukul Chadda. The short film is a funny take on love and loneliness in time of social distancing.

She is now awaiting the streaming of her upcoming film, “Lootcase”. Its story revolves around a turn of events that unfolds after a middle-class man chances upon a suitcase full of cash. Rasika will be seen showcasing her comic timing in the film, which also stars Kunal Kemmu.

“Shooting for ‘Lootcase’ was a lot of fun. Director Rajesh Krishnan would fill the scene with many quirks and Kunal’s super comic timing was a treat to play off,” said Rasika.

“During the lockdown, with our short film ‘Banana Bread’, I felt the need to create something relatable yet light-hearted…some humour to keep us from slipping into a sense of doom and gloom. The warmth with which ‘Banana Bread’ was received was heartening. I am now delighted that ‘Lootcase’ is giving me another opportunity to bring some cheer. I think the quirkiness of the film will be a fun ride for the audience. And I can’t wait to be be on that ride with them,” she added.
