Mohsin Khan and Shivangi Joshi recently shot for Rajan Shahi’s ‘Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai’ in Hrishikesh.
Khan says that Hrishikesh holds a very important place in the story of the show. “Actually, there is a misunderstanding which grows and reaches a point where we have to go to Hrishikesh to solve everything. Also, Kartik and Naira met in Hrishikesh for the first time. So, they go back to the place and try to understand their roots. For them, it’s like revisiting their memory. There was also a sequence where Kartik says Naira wants a divorce from him so he visits Hrishikesh, dreams about her and Naira, with her family, come over there and tries to solve the misunderstanding. After a big fight in their marriage, they visit Hrishikesh to bring that romance and love back in their life,” he says.
Talking about the shoot, Joshi says it was amazing. “The experience was great. I am from Uttarakhand, Dehradun. In my childhood, I used to visit Hrishikesh and take a dip in the Ganga. This time in Hrishikesh, we did rafting and there was a sequence where we are doing this adventure sport called flying fox. I loved it and we did many new things together.
Director’s Kut takes care of their actors, adds Mohsin. “We were always taken care by the production house. Our producer and our entire team was there with us. The drama sequence, which we were shooting also needed a lot of support. It was great to know that the team was there to help us throughout,” he says.
