Zee TV is coming up with a new show Teri Meri Ek Jindri and to shoot for its initial schedule, the cast is in Amritsar. Starring Adhvik Mahajan and Amandeep Sidhu in the lead roles, it is produced by Prateek Sharma under the banner of LSD Films.
If Jalandhar-born Adhvik, last seen in Divya Drishti, was glad to be in his home state, then Amandeep is happy to be in Amritsar as she has many childhood memories associated with the place. She says, “Whenever we had our vacation, we would visit our aunt (bua ji) in Amritsar and spend our entire holiday here. So, in other words, it was customary to visit the Golden Temple twice a year to offer our prayers. ”
Talking about her role, Amandeep says, “Both Mahi, my character, and I are family-oriented. I always celebrate my birthday with my parents rather than friends. Mahi too loves her family. Both of us believe in being independent as well.” Ask about her dream role and she doesn’t have to think much for she wishes to play a cop someday.
Shooting in the cold weather of Punjab is altogether a different experience for her. Amandeep explains, “It was close to three or four degrees at 6 in the morning when we were shooting. It was difficult because we were shivering, and the body was numb. At the same time, it was fun because it’s for the first time I have shot in such a cold weather. I will cherish this for life. And also, I had guilt-free binge of all the local delicacies such as chole kulche stuffed with aloo, gobhi, desi ghee ki jalebi and golgappe during my shoot days.”
A rule at Amandeep’s house requires everyone to come together and celebrate New Year as a family, no matter what. She says, “It has been going on for years. We all are in Delhi before the year ends and celebrate with home-cooked food.”
And what are her expectations from 2021? “Well, I just want the pandemic to end. And then everything will be normal. From 2020, one thing that we have learnt is to plan less, for God has a different plan.”
In her co-actor Adhvik, Amandeep says, she has found her best friend. “Not just Adhvik, but the entire cast is like family. We had a lot of fun shooting together. Adhvik is really supportive and we can gossip, cry and share a lot of things with each other.”
