She is on a well deserved break after shooting debut web series 'Crashh' which releases on February 14.

Television actress Aditi Sharma of Kaleerein fame is excited to be vacationing in Dubai after a tough work schedule and, thanks to the world-class attractions of our dazzling metropolis, has decided to prolong her stay.

Aditi, who is looking forward to the release of her debut web series Crashh, said she extended her three-day trip “because I just love this place and I’m like, let me just be here for a while! I came here in 2019 so I knew places; (this time) we went to The Dubai Mall, JBR, Burj Khalifa, Bluewaters… I am just roaming around with my brother!”

We asked the perky 24-year-old if she was hesitant to travel during the pandemic. “This is the first time I am travelling abroad since the pandemic hit. Honestly, I was a little worried because we still have Covid cases but I was like, it’s okay, I’m sure it’s good out there. The situation in Maharashtra was pretty bad, we’ve dealt with it so we’ll deal with this too! The security checks here were so good, we got our tests done and I felt safer.”

The actress admitted to being “pretty excited” for her web debut and also revealed that this Dubai trip is her first break in almost two years. “My first web series Crashh is coming up on February 14 on ALTBalaji and ZEE5 and I’m pretty excited for it! I needed this break because I was working since Yehh Jadu Hai Jinn Ka (a fantasy romance series that aired from 2019-2020) and then this show happened; it has been really difficult for me, I couldn’t go anywhere. I needed a break, that’s why I came to Dubai and what better place than this!”

She hopes viewers relate to her new series Crashh which she calls “complicated but amazing”, and her character Kajal - “an introvert who is into slam poetry”.

Crashh (which also stars Zain Imam, Rohan Mehra and Anushka Sen) is the story of four siblings who get separated in their childhood and it’s about what happens when they meet again in adulthood. It's a suspenseful story that's going to be really interesting. My character Kajal doesn’t say much and when she does, everyone has to listen!”

Aditi signs off on a positive note as she reveals lessons learned from the ongoing pandemic which has hit the entertainment industry hard. “I was very upset in the beginning because I couldn’t even go out of my house to buy vegetables or anything for like a month. It was a difficult situation for everyone but then I realized that you cannot do anything about it. Just accept it and understand that we have to be safe. So I started learning new things so that I divert my mind because I understood that it wasn’t important to be productive during that time. I learned guitar, I learned Spanish, I tried learning Arabic as well. I learned that life is too short, anything can happen at any time so you should live your life happy and be kind to people because you never know who is going through what. And, I think Mother Earth needed this break more than us.”
