Mumbai: Pakistani singer-actress Salma Aagha is happy that the audiences have accepted her daughter Sasheh Aagha, who made her Bollywood debut with Yash Raj Films’ “Aurangzeb”.
“I appreciated Sasheh (and her work) in the film. Although in the film, her role was not much lengthy, but she was a solo lead and people saw depth in her dialogue delivery, music,” Salma, who made an impressive debut with the 1982 film “Nikaah”, said here in an interview.
“They loved her song ‘Barbaadiyan’. I am grateful to people for giving so much love and appreciation to her,” she added.
In the Atul Sabbharwal-directed thriller “Aurangzeb”, Sasheh was paired with actor Arjun Kapoor. Set in Gurgaon, the film was about land scam and it also featured Rishi Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, Prithviraj Sukumaran and Amrita Singh.
On being asked what tips she gave to her daughter, Salma said: “I told her to be very cooperative with people while production, work very hard, not to worry about the looks so much, to be a performer and come up with some good songs.”
“She writes music as well, so very soon, she is coming out with her single also and we are very excited about it,” added the proud mom.
