Amidst the ongoing lockdown when shooting of films and shows are on hold, “Marzi” actress Pavleen Gujral is getting nostalgic about her “working holiday”.
The actress is currently enjoying the success of her new web series “Marzi”, which also stars Aahana Kumra and Rajeev Khandelwal.
Talking about the fun moments, Pavleen shared: “While shooting ”Marzi” in Shimla we all had quite a blast. Aahana and Rajeev had a very hectic schedule. Me, Shivani Tanksale, Rajeev Siddhartha, and Rujita would go out and visit Shimla”s cafes and bars.”
“It felt more like a working holiday when we shot in Shimla, and I remember that it was freezing cold and one day we were shooting at night, it was my confrontation scene with Rajeev and we had to shoot at 3 am or something as we waited for the Shimla mall road to get empty. It was so cold that we could barely say our dialogues so an ”angithhi” was kept right outside the frame to keep us warm. It was a memorable shoot,” she added.
Pavleen, who plays a cop in the series, also shared her experience working with Aahana and Rajeev.
“”Marzi” is a very intense story and raises a very important issue, but as serious and complicated the script was, shooting for the series was a lot of fun. Both Aahana and Rajeev were such a delight to work with. They both have very different methods of acting,” she said.
Rajeev was always in character when he would arrive on set.
“One would know Dr. Anurag Sarawat has walked onto the set and he is so convincing and natural in the series. On the other hand, Aahana was always so much fun and joyful. But her character was such that she had to be in the mood all the time but once the director said ”cut”, you could see that Aahana was back to her fun self,” said Pavleen.
