Rukhsar Rehman set for 'Savdhaan India'

Actress Rukhsar Rehman, who rose to fame with shows like "Dream Girl", "Tumhari Pakhi" and Bollywood movies like "PK", will be seen playing a mother in "Savdhaan India".

She says this is the first time she is playing such a character.

"Yes, this is the first time I am playing the role of a mother," Rukhsar said in a statement.

According to a source from the team of the Life OK show, the actress will be seen playing the role of Sheela, a mother of two young daughters. In the show, Sheela will be seen as a widow, who has given part of her house on rent to a man and later falls in love with him.

"If the role is substantial and important to the show, I have no problem in playing the role of a mother to grownups," she added.

The story is a murder mystery where Sheela will be found dead and the episode will show how the family will trace out the criminal to secure justice.

"Many actors were considered for the role. However, because of her soft looks and innocent face, Rukhsar was finalised for the episode," said the source.
