Shenaz Treasuryvala and Sonal Sehgal seem to have taken their on-screen friendship in recently released RADIO a little too seriously. So much so that even in their real life, the duo is not just keeping in touch with each other weeks after the shooting was wrapped up but have been exchanging notes quite frequently. No wonder, they are happy to state that they are indeed 'good friends'.
'Sonal and I have become great friends. We recently hung out and drank wine. We also went to Pune together. A few weeks back, she showed me around Delhi. So, no cat fights or hate mails. We get along great and speak at least three times a day. She is my buddy, though not 'beep beep' buddy', says Shenaz with a mischievous laugh.
Still, since RADIO was a two heroine setup, even Shenaz would have wanted to ensure that gets similar footage as Sonal, right?
'Oh no, not at all, I don't look at it that way at all', Shenaz comes up with a denial, 'I will continue expressing myself in whatever form or medium that inspires me and the audience; the size of the role is absolutely irrelevant. Remember Brad Pitt in SNATCH or TRUE ROMANCE? Or Kevin Spacey in SEVEN? All small roles but they stole the show! There is no such thing as a small role, only a small actor. And I look forward to doing inspiring small roles. In RADIO, both roles are different and special in their own way. Depending on who you are and where you are in your life you'll respond differently and connect differently to either character. Both roles are equal in length and depth.'
Adds Sonal, 'Since both of us had really well etched out characters in RADIO, none of us are counting our minutes on screen. One has to be mainly worried about whether your character is sound enough or not. Since it is, I didn't feel insecure at all. This is why there was no competition. Everybody has his own place and each one works because of other.'
