Life works in mysterious ways, and debutante Reshham Sahaani is surely one of those lucky ones to experience the magic firsthand.

Talking about how Reshham bagged her role in Faraaz, the actress says, “I was doing a workshop with Mukesh (Chhabra) sir. I was a student at the time. At the end of the workshop, Mukesh sir offered me an internship. Later, I joined his casting agency, and while I was working there, I happened to audition for this role. It was very impromptu; Mukesh sir just said, are iska bhi audition le lo.”

The actress continued, “And from the moment I was briefed about the film and the scene, and when I got to know that it is based on the true incident of the 2016 terrorist attack on Holey Artisan Cafe in Dhaka, Bangladesh, I was like, this is something I definitely want to be a part of. I want to tell the story to the world and of course Hansal (Mehta) sir was directing it. So I was pretty excited to be working on this project”

Reshham further added, “Faraaz will always be special to me. The whole experience of working with the cast and crew, making friendships, and learning so much about life and acting. It’s an experience I will always cherish. As they say, a first is always the first”
