Actress Pankhuri Awasthi, who is playing the title role in the forthcoming historical TV show "Razia Sultan", says Kamal Amrohi's 1983 eponymous film starring Hema Malini in the lead is her inspiration for the character.
Pankhuri was present at the launch of the show here recently when she was asked if she had taken any inspiration from actress Hema Malini.
To that, she said: "Definitely...the one good thing about the film is its songs. Mostly on sets, I usually hum the songs. It's a great relief and I definitely look up to her (Hema) for everything she has done in that movie. So, I'm drawing a lot of influences from there also."
