It is a very good part. It’s like two different people in one person. The story talks about how her life’s journey changed her as a person.”
Suniel is the nicest person I have ever met: In ‘Pailwan’, Akanksha got a chance to work with Suniel Shetty for the first time. she says Suniel is the nicest person she has ever met.

‘Pailwan’ is set to hit the theatres on September 12. Akanksha Singh is a popular name in the television industry and has just started making her presence felt in the world of films. The Jaipur-born actress has done a couple of Telugu films, apart from the Hindi movie “Badrinath Ki Dulhania”.
