“I was very happy that Shanaya came to meet us. When she surprised us on set, I personally took and showed her around along with her family like her elder sister. We also sang my favourite song ‘Paith bichara’ together,” said Aakriti.
Said Shanaya’s father Sachin Arora: “My daughter Shanaya is a huge fan of Kullfi. Whenever Kullfi sings on screen, she sings along with her. This show has brought me closer to my daughter and I am very grateful to Aakriti and Mohit Malik for this.”
Mohit says it is nice to know that one’s work is being recognised and is changing lives.
