Streaming giant ALTBalaji is set to introduce yet another talent to the OTT world. The internet sensation Arshiya Arshi, who was also a participant in the dating reality show Splitsvilla, will be seen in ALTBalaji’s exclusive anthology Hai Taubba 3. The third chapter of the popular franchise marks Arshiya’s digital debut as an actor. Arshiya will romance the talented Poulomi Das in one of the episodes. She essays the character of Aliya who is head over heels in love with Kesar, a character played by Das. Just like Arshiya herself, Aliya is an unabashed character.
Talking about her character Arshiya said, “My character is someone who is absolutely loving and caring. She has a female partner and I think that is the most interesting part of the character. I was really nervous initially, but I had fun on the sets. The director, my co-actors and the crew were very cordial. It felt like a family by the end of it.”
When asked if she had any inhibitions to play a lesbian in her OTT debut, Arshiya quickly retorted, “Not at all. I did not even think about it. For me, it was just an interesting character.”
For the unversed Hai Taubba chapter 3 will focus on women and empower them by lauding their decisions unapologetically. The new chapter is going to be about women who refuse to abide by societal norms and decide to break out of their monotonous lives in order to live the lives they truly desire. These stories are about what society considers taboo today. It very vividly brings out the imperfections in the lives of these women and how they embrace these imperfections to make changes in the status quo in order to live their lives to the absolute fullest.
The trailer for Hai Taubba 3 is live and the show will stream exclusively on ALTBalaji from September 11 onwards.
