Reva Kaurase is seen as Rimzim in the ongoing fiction Pyaar Ka Pehla Adhyaya : Shiv Shakti, produced by Prateek Sharma‘s Studio LSD. The actor says the title of the show has been thoughtfully chosen and is apt for the narrative.
“As the story unfolds, you’ll understand the meaning behind it. For me it’s the interdependency between two individuals that acts as a magic, how Shiv is incomplete without Shakti and how Shakti is incomplete without Shiv,” she says.
While Reva can’t reveal much about the character at this point except that Rimzim is a bubbly girl, who loves her sister a lot.
“She is also a full-time social media addict who would like to post every single thing that happens throughout the day online. The character is quite opposite to my personality. I am a calm and composed individual but to get into the skin of a person who is quite impulsive, who speaks their mind without giving it a second thought was a good experience. Also it’s fun to play Rimzim as she has this humour which runs throughout the entire show and provides relief amid all the tension,” she adds.
The backdrop of the show is set in Banaras.
“It was my second trip to Banaras. There’s some energy there which can’t be expressed in words. As we were shooting I came to know many things about the city, which I didn’t know earlier. Visiting mandirs and experiencing the aarati live and the aura of that place was magical… something so pure that can’t define it in words,” she says.
The production value of the show appears to be impressive. And, the response around it has also been positive, she shares.
“It’s us who appear on screen and receive the praises but the entire team works so hard on it without complaining. It used to be quite Hot in Benaras at the time we were shooting, the entire team, the team taking care of the lights, cameramen used to stand in the scorching sun without complaining and the shots we got, they speak for themselves. The entire sequence is shot so beautifully. When I saw the premiere for the first time listening to the background scores and watching the screen presence of the actors, I got goosebumps. So that’s how everyone’s effort combined together can turn out to be such a beautiful piece of art,” she adds.
Ask her to share interesting incidents from the set and she thinks before answering,
“Well the entire shooting process was quite fun but for me visiting temples and getting to know their backstory, looking at their architecture, and experiencing that vibration when a huge amount of crowd sings the arti together was some of the best moments of my life, which I’ll cherish forever. Also the cherry on the cake was the food there. It was delicious. Everyone must try.”
Sharing about her experience of working with Studio LSD, Prateek and the director of the show, she adds,
“Initially I didn’t know how it would go as I was new to this environment but on the set everyone made sure that I’m comfortable and at peace. Our director Prateek Sharma sir was very patient with the process. He makes your work easy as an artist and helped me to understand the technicalities and to make my performance better. And of course, our producer Prateek Sharma sir is an amazing person. I am simply grateful to work with Studio LSD. They have an insight about what they’re doing, as you see the show has turned out quite well. I am so happy to work with them.”
