Eisha Singh, the lead of ‘Ishq Ka Rang Safed’ talks about her childhood, journey to small screen, insecurities and more
Young and beautiful, Eisha Singh, the lead of Colors’ social drama ‘Ishq Ka Rang Safed’ (IKRS) has made her mark in the industry. Barely a show old, this teenager is playing the role of a young widow, Dhaani in IKRS.
How did you enter the world of glitz and glamour?
Like many, during my childhood I used to dream about becoming an actor. Then my focus shifted from acting to medicine to engineering and even a career as an air hostess. Finally, as fate would have it I followed my dream and concentrated on acting and took it as a profession.
Has your family been supportive of your acting career?
My mom and dad have been exceptionally supportive of whatever I do. Without their encouragement I would have never been able to continue with my career today. And thankfully, not only my parents but also my friends and teachers have been sensitive enough.
How did you bag the lead role in ‘Ishq Ka Rang Safed’?
My uncle Manoj Joshi (‘Chidiya Ghar’) is an actor and is in the industry for quite some time. When he heard the news of Film Farm coming up with a new show, he contacted us and asked me to come to Mumbai for auditions. Post my audition I got selected for the role. I am thankful that I didn’t have to struggle much and got a big platform in the beginning of my career.
What was your first reaction when you heard that Mishal Raheja will be cast opposite you?
Surprisingly, I have watched his previous show ‘Laagi Tujhse Lagan’, but was not aware about his real name. When I got to know that the makers have selected someone called Mishal Raheja opposite me, I googled about him. To my surprise it was Dutta Bhau of ‘Laagi Tujhse Lagan’. I was excited to meet and work with him.
At such a young age why did you opt to doing the role of a widow?
Well, this is a challenge for me. Dhaani’s character is completely a contrast to that of Eisha. I had to put my efforts to get into the skin of the character and that was a test for me to see whether I could achieve it or not.
I am sure not many would prefer to do such an intense character at the beginning of their career. Having said that I would like to add that when I will sign for my next role, it will surely be very much different from Dhaani; something louder and colourful.
