Actress Surveen Chawla will be seen in an upcoming Ekta Kapoor produced web series ‘Haq Se’. The web series features Surveen as the protagonist alongside actor Rajeev Khandelwal. Directed by Ken Ghosh, Haq Se is a story which is set in the Indian state of Kashmir. The web series will be streaming next month onwards on the Alt Balaji App.
In an exclusive interaction with Cinespeaks, Surveen speaks to us. The actress speaks on women’s rights, her take on the new law on National Anthem, her family support and much more…
Elaborating on the story of Haq Se, Surveen said, “The web series is not a political drama but an emotional drama about 4 sisters who live in Kashmir. Primarily, it is about their dreams and aspirations and how they fulfill their dreams in spite of several hindrances. The story is set against the backdrop of Kashmir and the present day scenario of how people lead their lives in Kashmir is shown. We shot the web series in Himachal and Manali and not in Kashmir because of the safety issues. Kashmir is referred to as the heaven on Earth but it is not less than hell for people living in the different areas of Kashmir.”
Surveen will be seen playing the character of a pediatrician in the film. When we questioned her preparation for the role, Surveen said, “I researched extensively to understand the mannerisms of a doctor. I tried to understand the way how pediatricians interact with children. In fact, I always aspired to become a surgeon in my childhood days. I am like a pharmacist in my friends group because I have a little bit knowledge on medicines and salts.”
Speaking on the importance of education in a woman’s life, Surveen said, “Education makes a person independent. It is not just for women but for men also. I think education and financial independence go hand in hand. Education gives you financial independence. Financial independence gives you confidence and strength. It empowers a person to voice their opinions and speak without fear. I personally believe in and contribute generously for the welfare of women’s education. If we educate them, then they will become independent and their future will be secured. So, my message to people is to contribute towards women’s education.”
Post Haq Se, Surveen Chawla will be next seen in a Netflix series ‘Sacred Games’ alongside Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Saif Ali Khan. The series will be directed by Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane.
