New Delhi: Actress Bhavna Chauhan, who has previously played character roles in films like "Jai Ho" and "Hasee Toh Phasee", will portray Princess Sazia in forthcoming historical TV show "Razia Sultan".
Sazia is the elder sister of Razia Sultan -- first women ruler of the Delhi Sultanate. She will play a bubbly elder sibling of Razia, who cherishes the passion for dressing up, unlike Razia.
Interestingly, Bhavna was initially offered the role of Razia Sultan. However, the moment she heard of Sazia's character, she realised how similar she is like the latter in real life.
"I can never relate myself in the typical saas-bahu genre. I have always been attracted towards the mythological and historical shows and I'm happy to be part of 'Razia Sultan'," Bhavna said in a statement.
Apart from "Razia Sultan", Bhavna will also be seen playing Om Puri's daugther in an upcoming untitled comedy film, which will also star Rajpal Yadav, Sanjay Mishra and Chitrashi Rawat.
"Razia Sultan" will be aired on the new channel &TV starting March 2.
