Talking about the show, Asha Negi shares, “The kind of roles that I have played in my stint with TV have been completely different from the role of Bindiya, hence when I read the script, I knew it would be a challenge for me. But thanks to me director, Tapasvi, the journey has been extremely smooth, and he helped me transition into the character of Bindiya quite seamlessly.”
She adds, “Khwabon Ke Parindey is all about life which makes it so relatable to all of us. It talks about how friends help you get through even the most difficult phases of your life easily and why is it important to cherish those friends all your life. While my friends have helped me grow and be the best version of myself, I have also found new friends in my co stars Mrinal, Manasi and Tushar who I will treasure for life.”
Mrinal Dutt expressed, “Shooting for this show was just the most beautiful experience the actor and the traveler in me could have asked for! It was constant shooting on the go, driving through the spectacular terrains of Australia with a very enthusiastic young crew, which very soon became an actually unit of friends, shooting and collectively experiencing the actual journey and the journey of the characters in the film.”
“Its a beautiful coming of age drama and I am pretty sure the youth will connect with it. Playing Dixit was quite challenging for me initially as his personality is completely different from mine and Tapasvi wanted Dixit in a very specific way so we had to dig. The experience of prepping for my role was great and I have a lot to thank my director, Tapasvi for. We spent a lot of time together and worked on finding Dixit. From there on it was some amazing synchronicity.”
“Khwabon Ke Parindey is a beautiful and simple story that is relevant to today’s youth and will resonate with the audience. It will teach you how your friends can be your biggest strengths; celebrating good times and supporting through the bad times. Tapasvi and team have effortlessly captured the picturesque landscape of Australia while perfectly syncing the visuals and mood of the story,” said Manasi Moghe.

Working in Khwabon Ke Parindey was an extremely enriching experience as it brought together two very important aspects of my life – acting and travelling.”
