In an exclusive interview with FilmDhamaka, Ankita Lokhande revealed how she and Shaheer could create magic on-screen. Ankita said, “It was very important for us that people love us together. I don’t know how the chemistry came so right. It was just magical and it was very organic. I mean you just can’t create chemistry because you have to. You can’t be friends with everyone. You have to have that connection. I think with Shaheer it was very organic. He is a very good soul and I could just connect to him for some reason and he could connect to me. I just felt that he is Manav when he started shooting for the show. When I look into his eyes, I could see Manav in him. I could feel it that he is Manav. I was Archana who was searching for Manav and I could see that in him.” Also Read – Pavitra Rishta 2: Abhidnya Bhave is all praise for Shaheer Sheikh’s performance as Manav; says, ‘If Sushant would have seen it he would have appreciated Shaheer’ [EXCLUSIVE]

Ankita also spoke about his performance and said, “He was very nervous in the beginning. I told him that people for the first few days will say that they liked Sushant more and all. But the moment they will see Manav and Archana they will forget everything. And I was so true. Shaheer was very nervous and anybody would be but I was so sure about him. Because it is up to us as actors to perform well. And Shaheer was giving me that Manav and hence Archana in me came automatically. It is give and take.” Also Read – Trending TV News Today: Shaheer Sheikh opens up on the time he was jobless before Mahabharat; Karan Kundrra approached for Salman Khan’s Bigg Boss 15 and more
