The best part is that he is always prepared for any scene and it eventually helps us perform our scenes very smoothly and with ease.

It’s easy to shoot our scenes as he is very supportive throughout, which makes it simpler, and that’s why we share an utmost level of comfort and understanding with each other.

It was an adorable scene and for the very first time, we see CP and Jijaji develop a soft corner for each other.”
To which Hiba replied, “That’s my favourite scene as well. The audience witnessed CP in a never seen before avatar where she was taking care of Jijaji; this was also the first step towards establishing a strong bond between the two. The journey ahead will get more exciting and thrilling with such moments paving the way for many more adorable scenes.”
