Naina Singh who played Shabbir Ahluwalia’s daughter Rhea in Kumkum Bhagya, pens an emotional message as Shabbir celebrates his b’day today. The father-daughter duo had always kept the sets up and laughing with their jokes and masti. The two are close to each other and have kept in touch even after Naina quitting the show few months back.
“I remember the first day I was on sets of Kumkum Bhagya, I was very nervous. His presence made me more nervous and that’s when he came to me and said it’s okay to be nervous as it was my first day. Plus being nervous is totally human”.
“Over a period of time, I found solace in Shabbir. From discussing my problems to discussing how a shot is to be performed, we were in it together. Playing his daughter boosted my confidence as well. Whenever there was a big scene to be shot, he used to close his eyes, so that I could deliver my lines well and there was no eye contact to make me nervous. I have never come across an actor who thinks for others so much and maybe that’s what differentiate him from others. He is an great actor and a wonderful human being. Had there been no lockdown, I would have gone on sets to wish him personally”.
