    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.

    In 2017, Rakshanda Khan made her debut on the digital platform with Ragini MMS Returns, where she played a paranormal investigator in the show. Keeping the USP of the show intact, Rakshanda played 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 instalment. I have been associated with Balaji for so long and this is what makes my stint more comfortable."

    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."
