Friendship is a relationship not bonded by blood but is as close and strong as any blood relation. And when artists work together, they tend to form an inseparable bond of friendship, and these bonds are not limited to lights, camera, and action! Celebrating the magic and madness of friendship are &TV’s inseparable dosts - Ghar Ek Mandir-Kripa Agrasen Maharaja Ki’s Genda Agarwal, Harsha Goel and Pankhudi Jaiswal; Aur Bhai Kya Chal Raha Hai’s Shanti Mishra and Sakina Mirza, Ramesh Prasad Mishra and Zafar Ali Mirza; and Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai’s Vibhuti Narayan Mishra and Manmohan Tiwari.
&TV Ke Naye Dost: While &TV’s newest fictional offering Ghar Ek Mandir-Kripa Agrasen Maharaja Ki, has kickstarted its shooting recently, the on-screen trio of Genda (Shrenu Parikh), Harsha Goel (Kajal Patil), Pankhudi Jaiswal (Heena Warde) are setting new friendship goals. They share a beautiful bond on-screen, supporting each other and being each other’s strength; Shrenu, Kajal and Heena have started evolving a close bond behind the camera. Shrenu Parikh, as Genda shares, “There has been an instant connection with both Kajal and Heena ever since we met for the first time on the set. We gelled up pretty well within few initial days. Now it does not even feel that I have met them recently. They remind me of my school friends, and just spending time with them brings a wave of nostalgia in me.” Kajal Patil, as Harsha Goel adds, “Shrenu and Heena are sweethearts. We had an instant connection and effortless friendship. And that is what makes our bond so special. Since we are shooting, I will be spending the friendship day with them, and I am sure we will have a rocking time! Heena Warde, as Pankhudi Jaiswal, adds, “Some bonds are so pure and instant that it does not take much of an effort. Such is our bond. We clicked from day one, and with every passing day, the bond is only becoming stronger and closer, both on-screen and off-screen.”
Kabhi Dushman Toh Kabhi Saheli: While Shanti Mishra (Farhana Fatema) and Sakina Mirza (Akansha Sharma) are the bickering neighbours living in a cohabited haveli in &TV’s Aur Bhai Kya Chal Raha Hai? their bond is the complete opposite off-screen. Sharing a ‘kabhi Dushman-Kabhi saheli’ bond on-screen, off-screen these two female leads share a beautiful rapport. Talking about their friendship Akansha Sharma as Sakina Mirza says, “Over time, Farhana has become a dear friend to me. We do our make up together, share our meals, listen to music, make unlimited fun reels and sometimes gossip. There have been times when I mispronounce a few Urdu words; Farhana helps with it. She makes sure that she takes out time and refines my Urdu diction. I never knew that I would be finding my best friend at work.” Farhana Fatema, as Shanti Mishra adds, “On-screen we are the perfect padosis, we fight and even stand unified in front of others. While off-screen, we have become thick friends. The make-up room is our hangout spot! We do all sorts of things over there and have a lot of fun. We both share the same love for acting and dancing, which made us even closer. Akansha is a wonderful co-actor and now one of my closest friends. She feels like family to me.”
