On the show Kundali Bhagya, she plays the role of Srishti, a loudmouth who is also honest and straightforward. In real life Anjum Fakih is a lot like the character, even her co-star Sammy (Abhishek Kapoor) thinks so. She was recently nominated for Best Behen Award at the Zee Rishtey Awards this year. Being one of the favourites in the category, this Bindaas Behen got her hands on her very first Zee Rishtey Award. We catch her for a quick chat about Kundali Bhagya, the Zee Rishtey Awards and her fans. Here’s what she had to say.

1. How does it feel being a part of Kundali Bhagya and being included in one of the many nominations at the Zee Rishtey Awards 2019?
See, Kundali Bhagya wins every year, but the problem is that I don’t win. So, this year, I’m rooting for myself hoping I get an award because it has been two years now!
2. What is the biggest twist on Kundali Bhagya, which even you didn’t expect?
The biggest twist on the show for me would be ‘Srishti becoming a Japanese beautician’. I did not expect that character disguise at all. Plus, I didn’t learn to play a Japanese character, I watched a few popular videos in Japanese and picked up a few words from there, that’s all.
Watch her play a Japanese character, in the clip here.
3. What is the nicest reaction you got from the audience about your character?
Mostly all my fans are kids and they love me. I don’t know about adults but teenagers, mostly college students, really like my character a lot. They message me a lot, send me DM’s telling me how much they adore me as fans. I love it when they message me and I think they are my biggest support system.
4. What is your new year resolution?
My resolution is to eat less and work out more. Because since the time I’ve started acting, I’ve put on some weight, I think. So, that’s my new year resolution.
