Mumbai, Sep 13: Small screen actress Adaa Khan will portray a rape survivor in an upcoming episode of the "Yeh Hai Aashiqui" show. She finds the character's trauma heart-tugging.
"I have done two shows before this. After 'Amrit Manthan', I just wanted to take a break and spend sometime with my family and friends. But when the script was read to me, I really liked it," Adaa told IANS.
"It was a very different kind of role. I play a rape survivor in the show. It will actually show what all trauma a rape victim goes through. I was touched after listening about the character and that's why I accepted it," added the actress who also featured in "Ghar Ki Lakshmi Betiyann".
In the episode featuring her, Adaa plays a South Indian girl named Shubhalaxmi, who aspires to become an air hostess. She is about to get married, but she is raped and consequently her wedding is called off.
