Sony SAB’s Veer Zara – Abhishek Nigam and Yesha Rughani spill beans about one another
“Best friends are the people you can do anything and nothing with and still have the best time”. Abhishek Nigam and Yesha Rughani, our very own Veer and Zara from Hero: Gayab Mode On found a BFF in one another had have been getting along like a house on fire right from the very first day of the shoot. Knowing someone for years or months doesn’t matter when you feel a level of comfort and compatibility with someone and that’s happened with Abhishek and Yesha who are busy making memories on the sets of Hero Gayab Mode On while entertaining audiences through their impressive performance on the show.
Abhishek Nigam, sharing his experience with Yesha, said, “Yesha is a fantastic co-star one can ever ask for. She is supportive and a phenomenal actress. I really admire her previous performances. The chemistry that we share on sets is certainly special and I couldn’t be happier to have her as my co-star. The scenes that we have shot till date are mostly comic or romantic and the audiences continue to love and support Veer and Zara’s jodi. Her friendly, gentle and sweet nature is something that I like most about her.”
Yesha Rugani talking about the rapport she shares with Abhishek, further added, “Abhishek and I are really comfortable with one another which makes the shoot all the more fun and exciting. The experience working with him as been wonderful right from the first day we met during the mock shoot and we instantly build a connection, which is still growing as we continue to spend more time together. I really appreciate the kind of knowledge he has and his hardworking nature. He has a spark and dedication towards work where he always does everything with a smile and doesn’t hesitate to give his 200%. This is something that I truly like and appreciate about him. We are certainly busy making new and treasured memories during shoot and he is really caring towards his co-actors. We have done several scenes together especially wearing harness and he has always ensured my safety and is protective towards me which I feel is really heartwarming.”
Abhishek Nigam, while calling out the biggest prankster on the set, revealed, “I am afraid I prank Yesha the most but she doesn’t hesitate to prank me either. We never leave a chance to pull out prank on each other on sets and some times when I catch her off guard, she has ended up shouting at the top of her voice, it is real fun troubling and teasing her. Although, she has also pranked me once during Diwali by bursting crackers in front of my door and I remember being so scared for a moment. All these little moments have brought us closer on the sets. I have never thought of sharing such an awesome bond with her because when I saw her for the first time, I sensed a little sternness about her but she is exactly the opposite of what I imagined her to be. She is so nice and the way she makes everyone comfortable while shooting is something that will instantly put any actor at ease.”
Adding further to Abhishek’s prankster status, Yesha said, “While Abhishek is a true gentleman, he is a big time prankster as well. Whenever he has a phone in his hand, we prefer staying away from him as he clicks funny pictures and videos which is really embarrassing to see afterwards. I don’t spare him either and make use of any opportunity I get to prank him.”
Yesha, while concluding, said, “The confidence and dedication in his eyes along with his kind heart were the first things that I noticed in him and he is really living up to it. Our opinions are always in sync and the understanding is unmatched which makes shooting really easy and works wonder for the scene!”
