The sets of Bhabhi has been lit up as it is a ‘Season of Marriage and
Rituals’. In the coming week, the Lavish Sangeet Ceremony of Rishika
will be shown. Recently the unit shot for the half an hour Special
Sangeet Ceremony where the entire cast and crew with celebrity guests
were present. On the D-Day of the shoot, Ruccha Gujrati’s car broke
down when she had to reach the sets on time for the shoot.
Ruccha went thro' total chaos filled with fear and anxiety before she
finally made it to the sets.. Here is Ruccha sharing her memorable day
with our reporter Hiral. “I was
stuck in Kandivili and I had to reach the sets in the next 20 minutes.
As we were shooting the special episode, I had to be on time and did
not want to be late. I wanted to be professional, I did not want to be
the reason for the delay in shoot. My car would not start and I called
the Production House. They offered to send me a car, but I knew that
was out of question, because the car would not reach to where I was
quickly, owing to heavy traffic. As I was caught in a dilemma, one of
the production guys came with a bike to pick me up. I was completely
scared as I hate bikes and honestly am very sacred of them. Eversince I
was a kid, I would never sit on a bike. But I was in a Catch-22
situation where I had to reach the shoot spot soon. So I went ahead and
sat on the bike. The entire team was praying for me and I shut my eyes
tightly and kept my fingers crossed, all thro the bike ride. (laughs)
Believe me, I reached the sets in just 15 minutes.. can you beat this?
Above all, I am glad today that I am over the Phobia of Bikes. This was
one thing I was so scared about in life, but today I have overcome it.”, says a more confident Ruccha. On asked whether she would own a bike in future, Ruccha answered, “Who knows, maybe bikes are more convenient for Mumbai. But I still need to learn to drive..”
Well, its really scary to see a person
on a bike closing eyes and keeping fingers crossed, isn’t it? But the
end of the day, as the saying, ‘Necessity is the Mother of Invention’
goes, what really matters is that Ruccha’s confidence level has risen
and she will probably never ever fear to go on a bike ride again… So can we say, All's Well that Ends Well, Ruccha?
