Rakshanda Khan further gained popularity for her role as Mallika Seth, a character with grey shades in the TV series Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin.
Rakshanda Khan is also a voice-over artist. She has done dubbing for Iron Man (2008), Iron Man 2 (2010), Total Recall (2012) and Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation (2015).
As a host, Rakshanda Khan has been the face of shows such as Kabhi Kabhii Pyaar Kabhi Kabhii Yaar, Jodi Kamaal Ki and Indian Idol 2 Taka Tak.
On the personal front, is married to actor Sachin Tyagi. The couple met on the sets of the dance reality show 'Kabhi Pyaar Kabhi Yaar' and just like the show's title they became partners in real life!
Rakshanda Khan and Sachin Tyagi are parents to daughter Inaya Tyagi who was born in 2014.
Rakshanda Khan had once said she would love to work with her husband and actor Sachin Tyagi, but doesn't see that happening anytime soon as she feels that they will be "very competitive with each other" while working together.
"It would be great if we get something to work together. But the problem is that we are both very stubborn in the sense of wanting a very good role. So until and unless a show comes up with two good roles, it is not going to be possible," said Rakshanda Khan in an old interview with IANS.
Rakshanda Khan made her comeback after a maternity break of three years with Brahmarakshas - Jaag Utha Shaitaan (2016).
Rakshanda Khan made her debut on the digital platform with Ragini MMS Returns, where she played a paranormal investigator in the show.
When asked Rakshanda Khan if juggling parenting and work is demanding, she said, "No one has managed to master this art. Raising children is a 24x7 job. You could be awake 23 hours, and you will still have some work pending. I'm still trying to strike a balance."
Taking the legacy of the first season ahead, ALTBalaji's new web-series Ragini MMS Returns... Season 2, will feature Khan as a paranormal expert with a much-evolved character. Keeping the USP of the show intact, Rakshanda will be seen playing the character of Bharti, a ghostbuster, who helps Ragini (Divya Agarwal) and her friends solve the strange mystery surrounding them.
On playing a similar character in the second part Rakshanda quipped, "Ragini MMS is not just a show, it's a legacy created by Ekta Kapoor and being a part of something as big as this is a proud moment for me. I believe as an actor; we should not restrict oneself basis the medium and keep moving forward to explore as much as possible. I made my digital debut with Ragini MMS Returns and I am continuing my experiment with its new installment. I have been associated with Balaji for so long and this is what makes my stint more comfortable."
Ragini MMS Returns Season 2 stars Varun Sood and Divya Agarwal in the lead. The erotic-horror web series is presently on the floors and is expected to premiere on ALT Balaji by the end of this year.
Here's wishing all the very best to Rakshanda Khan for her upcoming venture and very happy birthday!
