Adah Sharma will be also seen in the film "Bypass Road" by the debutant director Naman, brother of Neil Nitin Mukesh. Adah Sharma will be seen as the lead actress in the movie.

Actress Adah Sharma was excited to find a bit of her own self in Mahek, one of the main protagonists in the recently-released web series, The Holiday.

“This is probably the first role in which I play someone like myself - the half-crazy girl who loves to have fun but knows where to draw the line. I’m happy that I could lend a bit of my personality to this role,” says the 1920 Bollywood Horror hit film actress Adah Sharma.

The Holiday is a montage of epic adventures, misadventures that follow when best friends come together for a crazy ride. The story is full of fun and entertainment and one that will resonate with people.

The Holiday, streaming on Zoom Studio, is a story woven around a bachelorette party in Mauritius which the bride-to-be enjoys with her three best friends who are men (Priyank Sharma, Aashim Gulati, and Veer Rajwant Singh). The series tries to break gender stereotypes through this story of friendship.

“You have Dil Chahta Hai with three men, who are close friends, and Veere Di Wedding is about four girls who are friends. So, this is an unusual bachelorette trip. It shows that male-female friendship can be platonic and fun,” says Sharma, who was selected for the role after the producers saw her rather entertaining make-up tutorial parody she’d done for promotion.

In her upcoming film Man to Man, the 27-year-old plays a woman who has undergone a gender change process. “It’s an interesting but challenging role,” she says.

"I absolutely love to travel and as luck would have it my first digital series is titled The Holiday. It is a super exciting idea and we are shooting in Mauritius, a breathtakingly beautiful destination. I am thrilled to be part of this crazy story of a holiday of a group of people dealing with the reality of what they expected to be an epic outing together," said Adah, who has featured in Hindi films like 1920 and Hasee Toh Phasee.

The actress, who debuted on the big screen with the 2008 horror film 1920, shot for "The Holiday" in 18 days, in 14-hour schedules. “Being on set with just guys was quite crazy. But within a few days, they treated me like one of them. It’s amazing to have four different energies working together. The connection we made on the sets was surprisingly perfect, and I’ve never laughed this much on a set,” says Adah Sharma, who will also be next seen in the Commando 3, Bypass Road and Man to Man, apart from the second season of The Holiday.

Adah Sharma, however, had never planned to enter the film industry. She was advised to go for auditions by actor Asha Parekh’s manager after her annual day Kathak performance at school. “Before I knew it, I had quit studies post my 10th grade and was going for auditions. I probably wouldn’t have joined the industry had I thought it through. But now I don’t regret it one bit,” she says. Mostly because the exposure to the world of entertainment has made the actor, who was earlier socially awkward, more confident now.

“It was tough for me to talk to people and hold a conversation without feeling nervous. I’ve had my bunch of very close friends. So it’s hard for me to open up to new people. But that’s changed now,” says Sharma.

Her next release was the thriller Commando 2, a sequel to the 2013 film Commando: One Man Army, where she plays the female lead role of an inspector opposite Vidyut Jamwal.
