- Ekta selected Anchal after watching her Veere Di Wedding audition
- Anchal Sharma will make her acting debut in Haq Se
- Getting the part in the web-series was not a piece of cake for Anchal
Ekta Kapoor has ruled the television industry with her K-soaps like Kyunki... Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, Kasam Se and Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki, for years. Several artistes such as Smriti Irani, Divyanka Tripathi, Anita Hassanandani, Mouni Roy and Sakshi Tanwar among others became bona fide celebrities after starring in the shows she produced.
Speaking to IANS, Ekta Kapoor revealed how Anchal Sharma was cast in Haq Se: "First time I saw her audition that came from director Imtiaz Ali for Laila Majnu (an upcoming film). Since she did not look like the character, I said no to her and then I mentioned to Imtiaz that she is my niece. Later Rhea (Kapoor) showed me Anchal's audition for Veere Di Wedding and said that she is 'outstanding.' However, this time she fits the part so I cast her in the show."
