“I am playing the lead for the first time in Radha Prem Ki Deewani and I was very nervous when I got to know that I would share the screen with Sachit Patil. There were several thoughts going through my mind because I wasn’t even confident during my look test. Sachit is a senior actor but irrespective of that he made me comfortable on the set. To ease down my hesitation, he used to ask me to read the script with him and work on the dialogues together. That way, it was easy for me to sail through and overcome my fears.” shared Veena aka Radha.
“I was also under the impression that I will have to behave in a specific manner in front of Sachit because he is an established actor whereas I am completely new to the small screen. But my opinion regarding him completely changed when we started interacting about the script, the show, our respective characters and Sachit is a nice human being.” Added Veena.
It takes time for newbies to adjust to a new environment, but Veena considers herself lucky to work with an amazing co-star and a wonderful team. “For newbies like me it would have been a little difficult to adjust on the sets and with the character but unlike my thoughts, everyone on the sets was so friendly that I consider all of them as my second family. The overall ambience on the sets is very positive and this helped me to get along with everyone well. In a way, I consider myself lucky to be chosen as the lead for Radha Prem Ki Deewani.”
Talking further about her on-screen character, Veena said,” Radha is a bubbly and sorted girl. I relate to most of Radha’s qualities. She is also someone who takes care of everyone and is full of positive vibes. Kindhearted and happy go lucky are also some of the qualities which describe Radha’s character well.”
