We know and love Akanksha Singh as Megha Vyas, nee, Bhatnagar in Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuchh Kaha. Now that the show is coming to an end and we are ure you will miss her. So here's the list of reasons why we love our Megha Bhatnagar!
1. She is one of the youngest stars on TV today
All of 22, Akanksha Singh ranks as one of the youngest leading ladies on television today. And the freshness she brings to the screen is unparalleled.
2.She is a simple girl who made it big
Akanksha Singh was not brought up in the big bad city of Mumbai. She is raised in Jaipur, the Pink City and came to Mumbai to follow her dreams. She had a very non-starry upbringing, and she has still held on to her roots.
3. She has a strong acting background.
Akanksha Singh is definitely in the glamour industry, but she has what it takes in the acting department too. Akanksha has acted in over 15 plays in her hometown before she forayed into the television industry. And this theatre experience shows in the way she emotes as Megha.
4. Akanksha can handle a challenge
While most actresses her age are playing young girls in love or negative characters, Akanksha chose to chart new territories by playing a widowed mother of two. Talk about being different! And not only has she chosen a challenging role, she has balanced it very well on her delicate shoulders. And all her fans' love is testimony to that fact.
5. She won an award for her first show!
Akanksha Singh, withing months of being in Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuchh Kaha, won her first award at the Indian Telly Awards. She bagged the "Fresh New Face of 2012" award as an acknowledgement of the novelty that she brought to the small screen, and we couldn't agree more.Click here to see Megha's winning moment and her reaction to the award!
6. She has great chemistry with her co-star
With Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuchh Kaha being an unconventional love story, chemistry becomes the most important thing. And Akanksha's chemistry with her co-star Kunal Karan Kapoor, who plays Mohan, is oh-so-lovely. This duo has made talking through their eyes come back in vogue and are experts at making out hearts skip a beat. Did we mention that we love the mix of old world charm and mischief that this couple brings to the screen.
7. Akanksha is not just an actress
We've heard stories of actors giving up books and lectures for the warpaint and the camera, but Akanksha is different. This young lady is not just a great actress, but she's also on her way to becoming a physiotherapist certified by Rajasthan University. And despite her crazy schedules, she is in no mood to give up her studies. She balances her work and studies, gives her exams on time and also practices the art on her co-stars! Did we hear you say 'multitasker'?
8. Akanksha has set her limits
We don't mean limits in terms of her ambition, because well, sky is the limit. What Akanksha means is that she will not get too intimate on screen just because the script demands it. She has been a part of many lovely on screen moments with Mohan aka Kunal, but she is not very open to being lovey dovey on screen for hype's sake. A welcome change from all the actresses who claim that they'll do anything if the script demands it, don't you think?
9. She looks lovely in a saree
We're used to seeing our leading ladies in sarees, but none like Akanksha Singh. She makes the simplest of cotton sarees look beautiful and her 'no accessories' look works wonders. What's more, Akanksha loves these simple cotton sarees in real life too. Now that she's married on screen, we do wish to see her a little more dolled up, but have no issues if she continues with her simplicity too.
10. She is on great terms with her on screen children
A child's best friend is its mother, but in the case of the cast of Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuchh Kaha, that is true of on screen relations as well. Akanksha is on very good terms with both her on screen children Ashnoor, who plays Nanhi and Vishesh, who plays Addu in the show. If you visit the sets, you'll find them in each others' company between takes, playing and having a good time together. We love the fact that Akanksha has extended her on screen role to real life, and found herself young friends for life.
