Ishita Ganguly and Vijayendra Kumeria, the leads of Colors’ popular show Shastri Sisters (Shakuntalam Telefilms) strike a great chemistry together, and their rising popularity was very evident recently when the on-screen Jodi got mobbed after they stepped out of a competition held at Starlight Dance Academy at Nehru Planetarium.
After attending the event, when Ishita and Vijayendra stepped out of the front entrance gate, they could not believe what they saw. They could hardly move an inch, as they were quickly surrounded by their fans who were very eager to click pictures with their favourite Jodi, Rajat and Anushka.
We hear that the pair patiently answered the queries of their fans, posed for pictures with them. They were humble in accepting all the compliments, and could not stop smiling for nearly 10 minutes at shutterbugs.
When contacted, Ishita told us, “Yes, it was a very pleasant feeling, and we did not even realize that people love us so much. Everyone loves their Rajat and Anushka, and are looking forward to more of their chemistry as a couple on the show.”
The event which supported the cause initiated by 5 NGOs – Akanksha Foundation, Teach for India, Salaam Bombay, Cancer Patient Aids Association, Muktaangan along with the police constabulary contingency was well-attended by celebrities. In addition to Ishita and Vijayendra, the event was also supported by stars like Boman Irani, Shreyas Talpade, Raveena Tandon, VJ Andy, Pratyusha Banerjee and Gautam Rode. Dipika Samson of Colors’ Sasural Simar Ka also performed with the NGO children. The event was judged by noted choreographer Ganesh Acharya.
Three cheers to the Rajat and Anushka Jodi.
