Shama Sikander is back on screen. On the small screen rather, as she is plays the protagonist in Vikram Bhatt’s debut web series, Maya. A series that takes up the subject of BDSM, Maya, showcases Shama is a rather bold avatar.
The actress, who had risen to fame with the televison serial ‘Yeh Meri Life Hai’, tells us more about Maya in this interview.
“Maya is about desires, emotions, fears about finding love for yourself. Maya is the reality within everyone and this was Vikram Bhatt’s vision,” says Shama. Arguing against the comparisons between her show and 50 Shades of Grey, Shama says, “I don’t blame them because no other movie has been made on the subject apart from 50 Shades of Grey, which was like an eye opener. I had also loved the book. But our web series is very different.”
Maya apparently left her rather emotional. “Maya has been an intense, heavy duty subject for me. I have had so many emotional scenes that sometimes I use just sit down and cry. Things would disturb me. But thanks to Vikran Bhatt and his father Pravin Bhatt, and their humour at work, I would come out of it,” she reveals.
