Published Feb 21, , Sara and Angad have teamed up yet again, this time for Saubhagyalaxmi, and the TRPs of the show have received a boost from fans who are happy to see the duo back together. In a chat with us, Sara and Angad talk about their successful onscreen pairing, off-screen friendship and more.
Sara, Angad, what was the ice-breaker when the two of you met for the first time on the sets? He got to know about my reaction and was mad at me for a long time. Yes, initially Sara and I would sit in different corners of the set and not talk to each other. But a few days later, we had to shoot for a scene where I had to hold her neck tightly. Unfortunately, my grip was so tight that she screamed out in fear. In order to set things right, I would apologise to her, every single day.
Was it awkward, initially filming romantic scenes? No, there was never anything awkward between us. We were always comfortable with each other, although we found filming such scenes funny sometimes! What in your opinion makes your onscreen chemistry work? Angad on the other hand, is a kind-hearted co-star and gem of a guy. He adjusts with me in every situation.
I guess that is what makes our chemistry work. Besides we really look cool together. The superb friendship we share makes our chemistry work. The moment we are together, we get along like a house on fire. Who is the better co-star? The better co-star is, of course, me! Have you often burst out laughing when you were meant to be filming a serious scene?
Whenever we look at each other, we laugh! If I make any gesture or smile, something funny happens and Angad cannot stop laughing! Our director also gets irritated and ends up scolding us.
We are attuned to what the other person is thinking and hence keep laughing at our silent jokes. Who needs more re-takes? It depends completely on the situation. The one who ends up laughing more during the shots requires the maximum re-takes. Jokes aside, we are very professional that way and get involved in our scenes, so actually neither of us needs re-takes as such.
Once we were shooting a scene where Angad had to tell me to get out of his house. He had a stern face while muttering the dialogue and I really thought we were fighting. Even though I hated the scene big time, it is really close to my heart.
That scene is close to my heart as well. It was a very emotional moment as she thought it was all real and burst out crying. I actually had to convince her it was just a sequence. There is nothing more to it. I have a habit of perfecting my shots, so after I give a shot I never crib about it. Actually I feel that way after every scene.
I always have this craving for doing better and better. He loves me a lot as his best friend, and I love that. The only thing I dislike is how much he talks! What I like about Sara is that she loves my family and me unconditionally.
She talks to my mom, daughter and wife on a regular basis to keep tabs on their well-being. I am, and Angad will agree. Sara is definitely the crazier one! Where are you most likely to be found during breaks on set?
I always gather everyone in my make-up room, so I am likely to be found there during breaks. I chill in the make-up room with all the artistes.
Sara is usually with us as well. So, who among you is the jasoos who gets all the on-set gossip? That would be me. Angad always comes and asks me about the latest gossip! Sara is best at jasoosi! And what habits annoy you in your co-star? That Angad talks too much and laughs at his own silly jokes! She can nag a bit at times. Rapid-fire Favourite spot on the sets:
