Sonia Rathee, who’s making her acting debut with ALTBalaji’s web series, will be seen as ‘Rumi Desai‘ (Agastya‘s love interest). BBB3 also marks Sidharth‘s debut on OTT platform.
The makers has recently released the trailer of Broken But Beautiful 3 and it is receiving an outstanding response from public. Meanwhile, in a recent interaction with DNA, Sonia Rathee spoke about working with Sidharth Shukla, and also opened up on her kissing scenes with him.
Sharing her work experience, Sonia told DNA, “Honestly, I made it a point not to research him too much and not to go off of what anybody else has said because I didn’t want any preconceived notion before I met him and worked with him. So, I went in with a clean slate. It was a lot of fun working with Sidharth. Like any other person, it took us a little bit of time to get comfortable with each other, but once we did, it was all good. He jokes around a lot and always taking my case,” she quipped. “He is a fun guy to work with,” she added.
Talking about her On-screen kiss with Sidharth Shukla, Sonia said, “I don’t think either one of us broke the ice, we just did it.” When asked who broke the ice before they shot for the intimate scenes and the on-screen kiss, She said, “It was the first day for me on the sets, he had been shooting for 4-5 days already. It was just a small sequence and I was told Sonia…you are going to walk from this door and sit on Sid‘s lap and you are going to kiss each other. We didn’t talk about it, we didn’t do anything…they did a take and we just went for it.”
The actress further added, “We got saved because there was a small inter-cut. But yes, it takes time to be comfortable with the person. By the time we were doing the next kissing scene or whatever, we had become friends. So, it wasn’t just to the point! Then we were able to talk about it…where it was like ‘Sonia stop being so awkward’ etc…”
When she was asked, if Sidharth Shukla‘s star-power over-shadow her performance. Sonia replied, “I never really thought about that. Honestly, that thought never crossed my mind. Now that you say it, hopefully not,” Sonia said while laughing. “He did a wonderful job. From what I have seen, he is a great actor as well. So, he deserves all the credit that he is going to get. I’m not thinking about it like that at all.”
Apart from Sidharth & Sonia, the web series also stars Ehan Bhatt, Manvir Singh, Jahnavi Dhanrajgir, Bishakha Thapa, Taniya Kalrra, Saloni Khanna Patel among others. BBB3 will stream on 29th May, 2021 on AltBalaji.
