Mahi Vij is not a new name to us. We have seen her in many TV commercials and print media ads. She has done many music videos too; the famous ones are- Tu Tu Hai Wohi, Nit Khair Manga etc. She has done a Malayam movie opposite superstar Mamoothy also.
Maahi made her TV debut from Sahara One’s serial- Kaisi Lagi Lagan, which was then named as Shubh Kadam. It was aired for around a year on the channel. But it’s her 2nd venture Laagi Tujhse Lagan on Colors which gave her actual recognition.
In Laagi Tujhse Lagan, Mahi is playing the protagonist, Nakusha. She is from a very poor background and lives in a chawl. She is very beautiful, so to save her from the evil eyes of the society her mother has made her to look ugly and dark.
Then one day she meets a gangster- Datta Bhau (played by Mishal Raheja), who saves her from an evil inspector who wanted to forcibly marry her. So Nakusha is indebted to Datta and respects him a lot. Soon this respect changes to love. Initially this love was one sided, from her side only but slowly- slowly Datta too starts valuing her importance in his life and finally confesses to her, in spite of her darker look.
This love story of a gangster is doing well and both its protagonists- Nakusha and Datta have become everyone’s favorite.
So we can say that doing Laagu Tujhse Lagan was a good choice for Mahi. Though she has to make her look bad onscreen because of this serial but all her efforts have rewarded in the form of the success of this serial. There is no doubt that today Mahi Vij is more famous as Nakusha than her real name.
