Actor Shivangi Joshi, who is part of Rajan Shahi’s Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai (YRKKH), is thrilled as the show has completed 12 years.
The actor says that she feels honoured to be part of the serial. “The feeling is outstanding and great. I am privileged to share space with some of the finest actors and crew I have ever come across. Being a part of YRKKH is a blessing,” she says.
Ask her which has been her most cherished sequence on the show, and she replies, “I think each and every scene is special to me… But if I have to recall one of my favourites, it has to be the Kaira moments and performances in Greece and Rajasthan. That was a thrilling experience for me.”
The actor says that the show is loved because of the hard work that goes into it. “The USP of YRKKH is the lovely direction, amazing script writing and storytelling and the long vision of our mentor and producer, Rajan Shahi sir,” she says.
Last year, the shoot had to be halted due to the lockdown. Talking about this, Shivangi says, “Each day is a lesson to learn, remember and overcome. Then be it a working day or an off day. Last year kept me away from work for a few months, but reunited me with my entire family. I worked on myself, was engrossed in household work and spent time with myself. These are the best feelings which one should experience,” she says, adding, “These learning and challenges keep me going and motivated. There is always something new to look forward to.”
Talking about working with producer Rajan Shahi, she says, “He is beyond words. He is my mentor, a father figure to me, a great passionate believer in storytelling and a visionary.”
