Television’s most coveted devotional drama series Shubh Laabh – Aapkey Ghar Mein has always been able to keep the audience hooked with their thought-provoking storyline and myriad characters. While Savita essayed by Geetanjali Tikekar and Shreya, played by Tanisha Mehta are taking baby steps to cement their relationship onscreen, it seems that the two share a great camaraderie with each other offscreen.
In a candid conversation, they give the game away on their favorite moments, what they admire about each other and a host of other secrets. Tanisha considers her as family, saying “As a fellow actor, Geetanjali is very friendly, and understanding. She has been a guiding force throughout, and she also supports me a lot. She is super fun to shoot with, and every scene with her has been memorable. We are always striving to put across a strong message for our audience and when we are not shooting, we are always hanging out and chilling together.”
Geetanjali estimates that her onscreen bahu is “not just beautiful and talented but also a great co-actor. Her sincerity and dedication to the craft is why I like sharing screen with her. I love her enthusiasm and openness to suggestions. We have shot some great scenes together, but I have to say that my most favorite scene with her is the one where I reached out to her, not as a mother-in-law but as a woman and I think that is my favorite memory with her while shooting and I’ll always treasure it.”
Speaking about their rapport, Tanisha says “our saas-bahu jodi onscreen is very different from other jodis. They have an unlikely friendship which is blossoming with each passing day. Offscreen, we are great friends, she is like a mentor to me. What can I say, she is a professional actor, very disciplined and active regarding all scenes! We have an equation of mutual respect which I wouldn’t trade for anything in this world. As for our onscreen characters, I’m thankful to the audience for supporting us. On many occasions I have been told that people find our bond inspiring and as an actor it is very fulfilling to hear that.”
Commenting on their friendship, Geetanjali says, “Unless the offscreen rapports are sorted, it doesn’t translate well on to the screen. We get along very well and that shows in our work. I am thankful that I get to share my journey on the show with Tanisha. Going by the affirmations from our fans, it is obvious that our bond is a strong one. We are trying to cement our friendship onscreen in the same way it is offscreen and I can assure our viewers that a lot of twists are on your way so stay tuned!”
