YOGRAAJ SHARMA/ JOURNALIST TODAY.
Ragini Khanna who has appeared in more than 30 television shows and has earned numerous accolades has a significant fan base, who actually refer to themselves as ‘Raginians’. She began her career with television series called Radha Ki Betiyaan Kuch Kar Dikhayengi followed by Bhaskar Bharti and later Sasural Genda Phool (2011). After taking a breather from TV serials Ragini Khanna has completed a new project titled Gurgaon produced by JAR Pictures and directed by debutant Shanker Raman, who is an award-winning cinematographer, writer and producer, having worked professionally over the last two decades on several documentaries, shorts, feature films and TV commercials. In Gurgaon, she has been pitted opposite Akshay Oberoi.
The pretty and talented Ragini Khanna is quite excited about her role in Gurgaon. On being asked how she bagged the role, Ragini Khanna says, “When I read the script, I was very excited that the director saw me as an actor and not just as a bubbly girl out of a TV show. To get an opportunity which is so creative, is very evolving for an actor. It was liberating for me, as I explored a lot of untapped emotional areas and it was a journey of self-discovery. Especially since my director Shanker Raman is very generous, I confess that it was an enriching experience for me working on the sets of Gurgaon.”
Ragini Khanna adds that as an actress, she has sunk her teeth into her role and is sure that she would be able to muster a lot of accolades for her performance in the film. Right now Ragini confesses that she is having no TV serial on hand and is open for many more exciting roles in films and would like to earn a name as she did in TV serials, especially Sasural Genda Phool. The film is produced by Ajay G. Rai and Alan McAlex of JAR Pictures along with Madhukar R. Musle of M.R. Filmworks, Nisha N. Sujan of Hashtag Film Studios and Abbas Ali Rattansi.
