When we started with our first take my lungi fell loose and I didn’t realise it till the mic attached to it fell on my feet. I immediately wrapped a blanket that was lying next to me on the bed to avoid any embarrassment. After looking at me wrapped in a blanket, the entire cast had good laugh and it made for a good joke for everyone on the set.”

Everyone started panicking on what was wrong with Shubhangi ji’s health, this continued for a couple of days. Looking at everyone getting panicked I asked Aasif ji on what was wrong with Shubhangi ji’s health and he said that she is pregnant. I was happy as well tensed as Saumya had just come back from her maternity break and now Shubhangi ji would have to go on a break. Watching everyone upset Shubhangi ji burst out laughing that this was a prank and she isn’t pregnant. This particular incident remains fresh forever.”
