In fact, Aahana says she is as close to Pavail as she is to her own brother.
“When Pavail came to Mumbai from Delhi, I was his first friend. He and I studied together and we depend on one another for advice and support,” she said, adding that even his family is like her own.
“When I go to Delhi I stay in his place,” she said.
Aahana even ties a rakhi to Pavail like she does to her own brother.
“From the time he came to Mumbai, we’ve been like family. I am the only family he has in Mumbai. He looks after me and I look after him,” she said.
The two actors have often worked together on stage, and have now worked on the small screen too.
“Since we spend so much time together we end up fighting like all normal siblings. I wasn’t surprised when I ended up playing Pavail’s stepsister in ‘Yudh’. I just wish we had more scenes together,” she said.
“Yudh”, which marked Amitabh’s foray into fiction on TV, has brought Aahana and Pavail even closer together.
“I think we make a great team. I hope we get more opportunities to work together,” Aahana said.
