Hunar Hali, a ‘tea specialist’ on set
Actress Hunar Hali, who is currently seen playing the role of Jaya in “Dahleez”, surprised everyone on the set of the TV show with her tea-making skills when she trained one of the spot boys to prepare ‘Hunar Hali special tea’ for everyone on the set.
“The entire cast sits together in between shots and enjoys a chat with a ‘cutting’ in our hand. Everyone has been complaining about how they dislike the tea the spot used to prepare,” Hunar, who has previously appeared in TV shows like “Sasural Genda Phool”, “Adaalat” and “Ek Boond Ishq”, said in a statement.
“So one day I decided to prepare tea for everyone without telling them. That day the tea was well appreciated and I decided to teach the spot boy ‘Hunar Hali special tea’.”
“Till today nobody knows that the tea was prepared by me as I knew they would ask me to make it every day. So I came up with a solution and started teaching the spot,” she added.
Set in the political and legal world of Delhi, “Dahleez”, aired on Star Plus, features the love story of Adarsh (Harshad Arora) and Swadheenta (Tridha Choudhury).
Real tears on ‘Siya Ke Ram’ set
The cast of popular TV show “Siya Ke Ram”, including actors Ashish Sharma, Madirakshi and Karan Suchak, got emotional while shooting for an upcoming sequence together.
While shooting for a scene showcasing the death of Raja Dashrath (Dalip Tahil), the entire on-screen royal family of Ayodhya got together. As it was probably their last time working with each other, the cast got emotional and decided to shoot for the sequence without glycerine.
“It was very, very emotional. Everyone was teary-eyed to another level altogether. Only we know how we managed to shoot for the scene because we knew once the scene is over, we would not be shooting such a scene together again,” Ashish, who plays the role of Ram in the show, said in a statement.
“Yes, there would be separate scenes but this was a last scene for all of us together as Ayodhya’s royal family and as family off screen too. All of us had a group hug for five minutes and took a while to recover from the entire atmosphere,” he added.
“Siya Ke Ram” will next focus on Sita (Madirakshi), Ram and Lakshman’s (Karan) journey in the jungle along with Raavan (Karthik Jayaram).
The show is a unique representation of Ramayana from Sita’s perspective.
