I left TV when I got pregnant and finally came back when my daughter crossed the age of seven. The storyline of the show is very different from what we see on TV. That’s why I decided to be a part of it.”
Tassnim said that she is enjoying to her comeback on TV.
“I was not at all nervous while facing the camera after a long time. In fact I am enjoying my comeback. My home is very close to the set. So it’s not a difficult for me to pack up early and go home,” she said.
Though Himani has played the role of mothers on various platforms earlier, she said her this role doesn’t have any comparison to the ones she essayed earlier.
“Every human is different from the other. In the same way every character has its own characteristics. So, you really can’t match two characters,” she said.
