Actress Ekta Kaul who gained immense popularity with her lead role in the popular Television show Mere Angne Mein quit the show a couple of months ago. She is now set to play a modern young free-spirited girl in the show Ghulaam. She will be playing the main lead in the show after the current lead, Niti Taylor exits from the show.

On being asked about replacing Niti, Ekta told a leading daily, "I am playing the new lead, but my role is very different from Niti's. She was playing a mild, docile girl who was easily suppressed. My role is that of a tough woman.“

Speaking of that she revealed that she will also indulge in a physical fight in the show and said, “I am trained in martial arts and I know everything about self-defense. I remember hitting an eve-teaser in Chandigarh. When he tried to escape on his bicycle, I pushed him, lifted his cycle and threw it on him! So, if this role requires me to fight a male actor on screen, it will not be difficult for me."

She spoke about the reason she chose to do the show Ghulaam and said, “When I started watching Ghulaam, I realised that the story was different and the women characters on the show also had equally meaty roles. It is very important that women don't get stereotyped on screen. I would never want to play a typical bahu, who is constantly crying. In my previous show also, though I played a regular bahu, it was a strong character. “

Well, it'll be exciting to watch this lady kick ass on her new show and we wish her lots of luck and success for the same.
