Prashansa Sharma, trending as Radhiya; the house-help in’ Mirzapur’ Seasons 1 and 2, is raising eyebrows not just for her demure yet revengeful avatar but also her hot and fashionista version off screen. Not an ordinary house help, Radhiya effortlessly manages to sway the audience with her power-packed performance in the web series.

Her Instagram shot up in a week, and this is proof enough that she is not only a very talented actor but also a dazzling diva in real life.

Sharma, who has featured in several web series shares, “I am pleasantly surprised to see people respond to or even notice Radhiya. I, never in my wildest dreams thought the most invisible character would make me visible. To be acknowledged for your work, your character, even when it’s for a minimum but impactful screen time is very exciting.”

Emphasizing on her character, she mentions, “When you play a character who has been abused, it is an opportunity to show the pain that a girl/woman goes through and make the society reflect on the many injustices on women. I am glad I can bring light to that.”

“To be recognized for your work and be praised for the body language and the demeanour you bring to a character means a lot to me. Ironically, I am the absolute opposite of her and hence playing Radhiya was a fun challenge”, quips the actress.

Gearing up for ‘Fallen’ by Reema Kagti; starring alongside Sonakshi Sinha, Vijay Varma, Gulshan Devaiah, Sohum Shah among others, she adds, “I can’t wait to play this character. We have been working on her for some time. Reema and team are a dream to work with”.
