The scene on the sets of Star Plus' Sapna Babul Ka..Bidaai was somehow giving a dejavu. It definitely struck a familiar chord. Yupp, right. It was like the whole family huddling under the sparkling Christmas tree eager to open their presents.
All the unit members of Bidaai, right from the technicians in sound, light, makeup department to lead actors Sara Khan, Kinshuk Mahajan and Producer Rajan Shahi, were gathered under the huge chandelier, beside the large tables full of gift wrapped presents. The excitement about the presents was infectious. The smell of eagerness and joy filled the air. The moment was simply superb!
Welcome to the 400-episode celebration of one of television's most loved soaps. With no categorical differences all the crew members are standing on the same level. Producer Rajan Shahi thinks his whole unit is one big family. To emphasize the point he brought his mother and daughter Ishika to be a part of the festivities too!
Soon the most awaited moment arrived and the announcement was made on the sets that its time for gift distribution. Everyone was immediately alert like a well trained army regiment. Soon one by one the names of the likes of Ashraf dada and Ramesh Yadav started to get called out. And every face returned with a smile or a giggle or a sense of gratitude or contention.
The huge boxes were distributed by the main leads of Bidaai as well as Producer Rajan Shahi's mother. Little Ishika helped with the little velvet pouches that presumably held tiny trinkets ,going by the sound that came when she precariously placed them on top of the larger gift boxes.
The only noticeable point of this celebration was that it wasn't followed by a buffet. As soon as the gift boxes disappeared another announcement "Chalo everyone back to business" was made.
But certainly when the hearts are full, a rumbling tummy doesn't matter. Isn't it?
