A high octane action thriller Poison, featuring Bollywood actors like Arbaaz Khan, Riya Sen, Freddy Daruwala, Tanuj Virwani will revolve around mafia groups in Mumbai. Sakshi Pradhan, who has earlier acted in TV shows and films, has landed a role of a lifetime in this Zee5 Original series. Sakshi will play the main antagonist holding her own against actors like Arbaaz Khan and Freddy Daruwala. Describing her role in the film, she says, “I am playing Rani, who hails from a small suburb of Mumbai, Nalasopara and she leads a gang of four men. Her journey from Mumbai to Goa brings about a whole lot of transformation and I play this woman gangster in the film. The character is very brutal and she mercilessly kills people and does not think twice even when she has to kill her lover. I had to heavy duty action scenes and stunts in the film and it was a great experience. I feel this is a role of a lifetime because I have never gotten an opportunity to do so many things in one role. Rani transforms from wearing salwar suits to a typical Goa girl, while playing the gangster.”
Ask Sakshi, how was it working with Arbaaz and the entire team and she says, “Arbaaz sir really liked my performance. He felt that I almost stole away his thunder in every scene and he was very happy. Similarly, Riya, Tanuj and Freddy all applauded my performance. In fact, I got a huge response from the entire team so I am really excited when the series will go on air and I will wait for the audiences’ reaction then.”
