(Alekh of Bidaai) comes across as a whiff of fresh air. These two completely different individuals, one an item girl and the other the US trained interior designer turned actor, first met at a Mumbai suburban gym where both work out. This casual acquaintance then turned into a strong friendship when they were part of the recent STAR Plus dance reality show, Zara Nachke Dikha 2.
Angad confirmed the friendship saying, "Rakhi is a real nice person. People may say that she is a big mouth, but at least she calls a spade a spade. Talking on their friendship, Angad quips, "One does not plan friendships, they just happen. She is very good to me and why should I be bothered about what her detractors say about her", says he.
Angad further informs that despite being on rival sides, Rakhi really helped him in the Star Plus reality show, with tips not only regarding dancing, but also on what kind of costumes to wear. "She even prayed for my success. I never regard anybody as my rival and possibly the world reciprocates in the same manner", he quips.
Post Zara Nach, where Angad's boy's team lost by just one point, the two friends have not been able to meet. "Now we again catch up in the gym only", avers Angad.
Rakhi also confirmed the bond saying "Angad is like my brother."
We hope this friendship lasts forever…
