There many incident from the set whenever me and Vikram are together. We are the pranksters on the set. Things keep on happening but the most happening thing I would like to share is I was shopping for myself and randomly one family comes they recognized me as Devyani.

Oh my God. The rapport with Vikram Singh Chauhan is eccentric. We laugh on the sets like we are insane people. If whatever happens on the set people are like search Vikram and Shivani they might be knowing everthing. And also now we are very much comfortable as a friend. If I say anything to Vikram then I am sure he is not gonna mind that. He never feels bad, he never take it on his ego if whatever I say to him.

What difference you find in Marathi television and Hindi television ?
I don’t know why people ask this question so many times and I even don’t know how to react on this. See its only work at the end of the day. It doesn’t mean if its Marathi then I’ll do this or though its Hindi then I do that, no its not like that work wise its always the same.
