Rashi Mal Plays A Hacker
Rashi Mal who was last seen in Helicopter Eela is excited for her web series A.I.S.H.A My Virtual Girlfriend, where she is playing the role of a hacker – Abigail.
Abigail/Abby is a vigilante hacker who helped create and code A.I.SHA.
Her work was much appreciated in the film and she is quite excited about this one too. “Abigail is a very complex character with a troubled past and the hacking collective, Maya, has become her home and her purpose. A.I.SHA is a series I was a part of even before Helicopter Eela. It has won 11 awards internationally, is the only series based on artificial intelligence and airs on the biggest TV channel in France (TF1) And in Africa too.”, says Rashi So reprising the role was a no brainer for her.
She adds: “I think Abby is me in an alternate universe given that I have a degree in I.T. Engineering. I could’ve been her had the acting bug not bitten me. You don’t see a lot of female characters like this one. The part has a lot of layers – she is fierce and smart and wants to fight for what is right. That is what every artist hopes for when looking for a role. I want to be versatile in my choice of roles and not restrict myself to any one genre. It is also important to be part of projects that are path-breaking and lead the way for future content “.
