"I was eager to see myself in that avatar. I enjoyed every bit of it as it reminded me of all the body swap movies I have watched while growing up. I'm excited to see how fans of 'Yeh Hai Aashiqui' react to this character," Mansi said in a statement.
Mansi, who was seen in TV shows like 'Do Dil Bandhe Ek Dori Se' and 'Peterson Hill', says this was her very first time for playing a male character on screen.
"This is the first time I became a boy for a story and that too a Sardar. The story was also very gripping, because of which I said yes to the part. It was very interesting to be in that getup, from putting on the beard and turban to talking like a Sikh boy," she added.
The episode will be aired on bindaas channel.
