Sheeba, who debuts on TV with Haasil, to play Kaushalya in Ram-Leela!


Actress Sheeba, who did a couple of films back in the 1990s before disappearing from the scene completely, will soon make her television debut with a Sony TV show called Haasil. Besides that, she is also doing Ram-Leela this festive season.

Sheeba will be playing the role of Kaushalya in Ramleela in Delhi. The actress says that the thought process behind taking up Ramleela was to make the Ramayana easy to understand for the youth.

“The reason I took up Ramleela because they said they wanted to make the Ramayana accessible and understandable to today’s youth. People are kind of getting disconnected from our history and mythology, so they said that they will keep this in mind. The youngsters must understand the family values that the Ramayana talks about. That’s what really prompted me to do this part,” says Sheeba.

The actor will be part of one of the biggest Ramleelas in Delhi – The Luv Kush Ramleela. “This is the first time I am doing Ramleela. The Luv Kush Ramleela is held at the Red Fort. This is one of the biggest Ramleela of the country and my part is going to be there for few days. I am really excited and looking forward to be performing in front of lakhs of people,” she says.
