The show Jeet Jayenge Hum on Sony Entertainment Television has just been launched, and already controversies have started stirring up. The buzz is that Sana Sheikh, the protagonist and her on-screen mother Nupur Alankaar have not been getting along with each other very well.
When we called Nupur Alankaar and questioned whether she is upset with Sana for any reason, the actress said, "Sana usually calls me by my name i.e. as Nupur. She doesn't even add a 'ji', 'aunty' or 'didi' with it. And I think I am a reverent".
Though Nupur refused to comment on the room sharing issue, when asked about Sana's talkative behaviour she replied in a matter of fact way, "Well, she's an RJ. She is supposed to be a little more talkative. I am cool with it".
Sana Sheikh on her part accepted that she and Nupur share cold vibes. "Yes, cold vibes are there. I think she has some issues, but I haven't figured out the reason yet. And about calling her by name, I come from a radio background, and we did not have any hierarchy system there. Even here, I address everybody by name, including Nawaaz who plays the role of my father. To top it all, I had already clarified with Nupur on how to address her, and she had told me to call her in whatever way I am comfortable with. So I don't know where the problem arises!".
Wonder what's cooking between the two here!!
