New Delhi: We love to watch her when she plays a saree clad, traditional yet an ideal modern bahu on screen in the famous TV soap ‘Diya Aur Baati Hum’. But little did Deepika Singh aka Sandhya of the famed daily serial know how much Delhiites adore her until she flew down all the way from Mumbai for her shooting schedule.
It happened when the entire team of the serial was brainstorming over an outdoor shoot location for the food competition related sequence; Deepika immediately shouted ‘Delhi’ and everyone agreed to pack their bags to the national capital.
Since Delhi also happens to be Deepika’s hometown, it helped her stay cool and composed during the steamy shooting under the sun, for she is used to the heat even as her cast members looked for respite by drinking cold drinks.
Deepika also added, “My schedule was very hectic so I could not go anywhere except Jhandewaali Maata temple. I visited the temple early morning one day so I could beat the crowds, but when I reached there I was shocked that there was a serpentine queue. It was really kind of the crowd to allow me to break the line, get a proper darshan and rush back to the sets in time for my shoot.”
The girl also stole some time from her hectic work schedule to spend some quality time with her family in Delhi. But little did she know that she would be welcomed by a crowd of fans outside her home too eager to get clicked with their fav TV actress.
We are now waiting to catch up with the upcoming Delhi shoot episodes of the show to see how everything turned out. How about you?
