Kubra Sait rose to fame with her bold character as Kukoo in Netflix first Indian original series "Sacred Games". Recently in an interview with IANS, she revealed that she is one of the biggest fans of ‘Badshah’ of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan.
"I still celebrate the day when I first met Shah Rukh Khan. One can't just have a crush on him, he is a person whom you love . "I remember when he walked on the stage and called my name 'Kubra', that was the biggest moment in my life, and till now I cherish that moment ," Kubra told IANS here. The 25 year old actress has made cameo appearances in various movies like "Sultan", "Ready" and "City Of Life" but her role of a transgender named Kukoo in "Sacred Games" garnered a huge fan following.
She said:" 'Sacred Games' is a huge milestone in my career as I have never received such fame, attention and success in my life. Now, media is interviewing me, photographers are capturing me. I am enjoying this limelight. "I am grateful to God and makers of the show for giving me the opportunity to play such a vital role in the show." The actress is overwhelmed with the response people are giving to her character after the series became a huge hit across the country. "Like people, I am also obsessed with Kukoo. I have a lifesize poster of Kukoo in my room. I am glad that people have liked my role. "Recently veteran lyricist Javed Akhtar complimented me for my performance and said that I am a deep actor. Getting a compliment for Javedji means a lot," added Kubra.
Kubra, who has been in showbiz for a while now, feels she has never struggled in her life. She said: "I do not believe in struggle. Struggle is a state of mind. People choose to struggle when people don't want to relax. Sometime it is not on your side, relax, calm down. No matter how hard the waves are, you will float on the ocean. "It may not be your time now but don't stop honing your skills.I am a very positive person. Whatever comes in my way, I take it with smile. One should treat herself/himself as a goddamn brand. Do something what you are good at. Struggle happens when you do something which you don't love. I love acting so I don't feel that I have ever struggled."
On the work front, Kubra will next be next seen in a Voot web series titled "Law and Honour" and in Zoya Akhtar's upcoming directorial "Gully Boy".
