Zee TV's recently launched fiction offering, 'Ikk Kudi Punjab Di' is a high-octane drama that has begun to captivate audiences with its powerful storyline and well-written characters. Based in Punjab, the show is a gripping narrative of strength and resilience. In the recent episodes, viewers witnessed how Heer (Tanisha Mehta) gets to know about the case that is going on against her Haweli and tries to help her Papaji - Beant Singh (Suneel Pushkarana) with Ranjha's (Avinesh Rekhi) support. While Heer is someone who will go above and beyond to protect her Papaji, in real life, Tanisha shares a similar relationship with her father.
Just like Heer, Tanisha is also a very protective daughter and shares an adorable bond with her real-life father. And because of the similarities, it becomes easier for Tanisha to bring out the right emotions on-screen. In fact, even popular actor Suneel Pushkarana shared how Tanisha makes him feel very comfortable on set while shooting the father-daughter sequences.
Tanisha shared, "I'm really lucky to have an on-screen dad who reminds me a lot of my own father. Heer's dad, like any good father, keeps his problems to himself and tries to solve them without bothering his family. He always prioritizes his family, even if it means hiding his worries. My dad does the same, but being a daddy's girl, I can always tell when he's upset. I do my best to help and support him, just like Heer does in the show. The bond between Heer and Papaji reflects the bond I share with my dad."
Suneel said, "Playing a father to Tanisha in the show is a blessing. She embodies sweetness, kindness, and politeness. While I don't have any children in real life, I've portrayed a father's role numerous times. Yet, this one holds a special place. I can confidently say that if I had a daughter, she would undoubtedly be like Heer."
While Heer and Papaji are giving us some major daughter-father goals, it will be interesting for the viewers to witness the upcoming track where Avinesh realizes his love for Tanisha, but will he express his feelings to her? Or will someone else come into Heer's life?
