Veteran actress Shefali Shah is known for playing powerful roles in her career, and with the upcoming Netflix anthology, Ajeeb Daastaans viewers can expect another stellar performance from her. Shefali plays the character of Natasha, a woman who is struggling with her husband’s cold behaviour and her daughter’s hearing impairment. Natasha finds solace in a dashing, hearing and verbally impaired man played by Manav Kaul, who mistakes her to have the same condition. The story gradually turns into a forbidden love-affair based on a lie and loneliness.

Kayoze Irani’s film Ankahi beautifully explores the concept of non-verbal communication. When asked about her experience on learning sign language, Shefali Shah says that she never thought she would be able to do it. She said, “At first, I never thought I would be able to do it, but once I learned it, it was amazing. The experience was so calming, I just didn’t find the need to talk. There were no intonations, no tonality in dialogues which automatically leaves no room to sound offensive. It’s just very peaceful.”
