Angad Bedi and Neha Dhupia have been married for nearly five years now and are definitely one of the most admired couples in the film industry. The two are now set to pair together for the first time on screen with a comedy drama which is penned by popular author Chetan Bhagat. The shoot for the audio series has already culminated and was shot in Mumbai.
Agand will be playing the character of Raghavan Rao and Neha plays the role of his wife, Savi. The story revolves around a married couple during the times of covid lockdowns. In an interview with Outlook, Angad gets candid about his married life with Neha, growing up together from two different individuals to becoming parents and more
Excerpts from the Conversation:
Q. This is the first time you both are paired together onscreen, why do you think it took so long for a maker to rope in this real couple who exudes compassion and love?
It’s the first time we have been paired together and sometimes the good things come on time and you have to wait for them and I just feel that it's something that just did justice to both Neha and me. It's written very well executed by Chetan Bhagat and the screenplay and dialogue have been done exceptionally well also so when I read it, I said yes to it.
Q. What makes Angad and Neha great onscreen Jodi?
In real life, there is a lot of humour and love, there is nauk jhauk, arguments, and fights too but I just feel she and I have some great chemistry which is very friendly and I just feel that there is a lot of humour involved because we both come from Punjabi families. I think and speak a lot more in Punjabi than English so I just feel there is a lot more colour and it just makes it very interesting to watch especially onscreen.
Q. Angad you and Neha have been a great couple offscreen and are now lovable parents too. What are the things that have changed in your relationship before and after marriage?
Things have definitely changed because we have children now. Before we were two individuals and now we are four. It has definitely changed for the better because the house is full of hustle and bustle and laughter and chatter and drama. I have a lovely daughter who is just like my wife and behaves like her and it's a beautiful relationship that is in progress.
It's lovely because when I see the mother of two children, I love her even more, the amounts she sacrificed, the bodily changes she went through, she had both children and she is a hands-on mom. All these are beautiful layers that come into women.
Q. As an actor and as a person, is there something you learn from Neha or Neha learns from you?
As partners, you are constantly evolving, changing, and learning. Definitely, Neha has taught me how to communicate a lot better, and she has taught me how to finish a fight, though I don’t finish a fight, I can sleep over a fight, but she doesn’t. I have taught her how to be calm, how to be patient and I think these are the qualities she has taken from me.
As far as work is concerned, I just feel that we have our own thought processes and think differently. I have my own journey and she has her own as she has been in this field for so much longer.
Q. What is next other than this project for you?
I have two films with R. Balki sir- Ghoomar and Made For Each Other then I have a project with Jio Studios and the working title is Suspicious Partners, yes I am starting two more projects by March. Also, I have three releases lined up this year so it's actually a very good year to look forward to.
