An exuberant Nivedita reveals, “Our performance was choreographed by ace choreographer Geeta Kapur. She is an absolute sweetheart and never complained, even though it took us a while to get the steps right. We used to rehearse from 5 in the morning and are glad our hard work paid off. The final result was fantastic.” Viren, too, echoes her sentiments.
Besides performing, Viren also hosted a segment of the show along with Pooja “Pratigya” Gor. Talking about it, he says, “It was a new experience and I was a little nervous but the act went off well. The segment was unlike any normal segment where the hosts simply walk in and start talking. It was a unique entry for me and my co-host Pratigya and it required a lot of rehearsals for us to get it right. I can’t wait for the audience to watch it. I hope they enjoy it as much as we did.”
He shared a great rapport with co-host Pooja as he exclaims, “I’ve met Pooja before Star Parivaar Awards but our interactions used to be very formal. After spending time in rehearsals, we got very comfortable and relaxed in each other’s company. Our segment was a smooth sailing.”
Other than work, Viren and Nivedita made sure that they made the most of their free time. Viren says, “The Venetian was so huge that we didn’t need to go out. Everything was available in the hotel itself! I shopped a bit and we also had a party there. When we had some time off, Harshad Chopra and I went clubbing and had a blast. Harshad, Anupriya and Pooja have now become my close friends.”
Nivedita adds, “I had a fun time hanging out with the cast of Chaand Chhupa Badal Mein because normally we don’t get enough time to chat, relax or have fun during the shoot. This was a good break from our regular schedule.”
