Shireen Mirza will be seen playing a double role in the show playing the role of Shikandi and Amba. Playing a double role has been quite the challenge for the actress.

According to Mirza,

“It was a different experience and I simply enjoyed working on the same. To be honest, I wasn’t really aware of mythological background of the characters and thus did not know that I had to play both a male and female character (Shikandi was a man, an avatar of Amba).”

After playing a true Punjabi sherni onscreen, Mirza is looking forward to the final outcome of these challenging roles!
