A star is beautiful; it affords pleasure, not from what it is to do, or to give, but simply by being what it is. It befits the heavens; it has congruity with the mighty space in which it dwells. It has repose: no force disturbs it's eternal peace. It has freedom: no obstruction lies between it and infinity. . . . . #maximumcity #happynewyear #newyear #newyear2019 #happy #lights #mumbai #bombay #aamchimumbai #bandra #sealink #newyearvibes #newyearvibes #light #thursdays #thursday #throwbackthursday #throwback #thursdaythoughts #thursdaynight #thursdaymotivation

"My makeup was minimal. When I did my first look test, my make up artist told me to stop grooming my eyebrows. I completely stopped threading them. And now it has been almost a year since I threaded my eyebrows," Aahana said. Further, when asked as to how she felt once she was all dressed up as the politician, she added, "Initially, I believed I couldn't pull off Priyanka Gandhi's look. But, everybody told me that I looked quite similar. So when I saw my first look test, I was like, 'Oh my god!"
The actress even revealed that she is enchanted by Priyanka Gandhi and would love to meet her someday. Apart from talking about her character, Aahana said that this film is a remarkable thing in her career as she has always been fascinated by political dramas. Having said that, she also mentioned that she read the script of The Accidental Prime Minister much later after she agreed to do the role. Seems, the actress feels blessed to be a part of a film backed by Vijay Ratnakar Gutte.
