Vaidika Senjaliya, who is seen in Sonali and Amir Jaffar’s “Tujhse Hai Raabta”, is happy to be back in Mumbai. After the Maharashtra government announced a lockdown in the state in April, a lot of TV shows moved out of the region, but now that the government has lifted shooting restrictions, they are back in Mumbai. The actress confessed that though shooting outdoor seemed like bliss initially, after a while she started missing Mumbai.
“It is so good to be back in Mumbai. When we started shooting out of Mumbai, I was really excited that we’re going for outdoor shooting. New location, new set up, so everything was very exciting and it was fun initially but somehow we all were missing Mumbai. The hotel in which we were staying was very nice, and comfortable. We had our pick up and drop cars and as soon as we wrapped up for the day, it would take us back to our hotel. We all then used to meet in someone’s room and we would talk till late at night,” she said.
“So I think I have bonded very well with my team because of it. I’m very grateful that I got a chance to go for an outdoor shoot, because if we were in Mumbai, things would have been different, like after pack up we would go back to our respective homes. Shooting outdoor was so positive and refreshing, and we enjoyed a lot, but yes at the end of the day we missed home. Also, in Gujarat rains started late so we were missing Mumbai rains so much. It is so good to be back, and we’re back to routine now,” she added.
Praising the producer couple for taking care of them so well during the outdoor, Vaidika said, “Our production house is the best, everyone was behaving so responsibly, they used to wear masks, sanitization, and social distancing was maintained. Suppose we are shooting in one room, then they used to make sure that there are no extras in that room. They trained the team so well that even though we shot outdoors for such a long time touchwood nobody’s health was affected nor did anyone get COVID symptoms. So the production house took great care not just while shooting but post shooting too. It was an amazing experience.”
