New Delhi, June 4 (IANS) Bollywood actress Swara Bhaskar will share screen space with veteran film and TV actor Parikshit Sahni for a commercial. She says it was an humbling experience.
The two will be seen together in Tara Jewellers' first TV campaign.
"It was a great honour to be acting with Parikshit sir. He is such a senior and experienced actor, and it was a very humbling and learning experience to be acting with him," Swara, who was last seen in "Aurangzeb", said in a statement.
The veteran actor, who plays Gyaneshwar in Zee TV's show "Aaj Ki Housewife Hai... Sab Jaanti Hai", is the son of legendary actor Balraj Sahni and Swara says that the 69-year-old often used to share memories of his father on the set.
"He told us stories about his father, the legendary Balraj Sahni. Balraj-ji was a leading member of IPTA (Indian People's Theatre Association) in its golden period and I too was a member of IPTA, the JNU chapter in my college days. So it was very special for me to hear those tales from Balraj-ji's son," she further said.
Swara was previously seen in ad commercials for ICICI bank, Tata Tea Jaago Re, Britannia Nutrichoice diabetes biscuits, Bajaj Allainze life insurance, Berger Paints, and Lava Mobiles.
In her latest commercial, she will be seen as a bride.
"It's for the first time I was playing a bejewelled decked up bride in an advertisement. It took me some five hours to get dressed and once I was ready I think I was weighing at least 7-8 kilos extra," Swara who will next be seen in "Raanjhanaa".
