We have always seen couples having a misunderstanding due to difference of opinion, but in the case of Sudeep Sahir and Anantika Sahir, it was 'Silence' that almost spoilt the party!!
It so happened that during Ganesh Chaturthi, the couple usually have the habit of making it to Anantika's mom's place to have a darshan of Ganpati bappa. However, this year both Sudeep and Anantika developed an eagerness to keep Ganpati at their house, but the sad thing was that they just kept this thought to themselves, and never discussed with each other!!
Says Sudeep, "Anantika was giving me certain hints about this, but I am very bad at the guessing game. We were going to Anantika's place to help her family for the next day's pooja when she revealed that it would have been nice if we had kept Ganpati at home. I was literally taken aback as I too had wished for the same (laughs)".
The couple then did the shopping for the puja, also bought the idol at the wee hours of the night and did the sthapana at home the next day. "We had to call all our friends and relatives at the last minute. My dear friend Sandiip Sikcand did the pooja at our house, while friends Gautam Hegde, Aditi Shirwaiker, Mohit Mallik, Megha Gupta had come over to have a darshan. Aditi had brought with her home made halwa", says Sudeep.
The two days of pomp was like Diwali for the couple who were last seen together in Nach Baliye 4. "After the visarjan we felt as though a member of the family went missing", states Sudeep.
On the work front, Sudeep quips, "I am looking for something different. Let's see what works out".
Sudeep was last seen in Star Plus' Santaan.
