Television actors Amit Verma and Benaf Dadachanjee chose to have an interactive and fun session. So they decided to interview each other when they were in town recently… 

You know her as sweet and bubbly Baby (Benaf Dadachanjee) and the understanding, smart Birju (Amit Verma) from the popular television show Baa, Bahu aur Baby. They both were in Ahmedabad to celebrate 500 episodes of their show and they also happen to cut a cake as they are getting engaged.Not in real life but in reel life! “I had been to Ahmedabad few years back but couldn’t see the city, hope to see something this time,” says Amit. While for Benaf this is her first visit to the city and she wishes to explore it. With long shooting hours, it gets really impossible for actors to interact even if they spend most of their time on the same sets. We found out that both the actors enjoy each other’s company and wished to tell the audience more about each other. We caught them in a jovial mood having fun and cracking jokes with each other.

Benaf puts Amit on a hot seat

How did you feel when you dress up like a woman in the show?
Amit: I felt horrible. I wasn’t even wearing a wig. It was a pathetic feeling.

Which is your favourite song?
Amit: I love the title song of Singh Is Kinng.

How did you feel when we did our first romantic sequence together?
Amit: I love romancing on the screen. I was into the character but you kept laughing instead of blushing. I really enjoyed the sequence.

I keep telling you that you have lost weight though you may have or not, how do you feel?
Amit: You are a total smart girl — you know I am dieting and have put on weight, you make sure to give me so much food that I stuff myself and then can’t shoot. And whenever you want to have a burger, you just want me as company.

What if one day you have to do a show that has timings from 7am to 7pm?
Amit: I have signed in all my contracts that I will not shoot early in the morning. But if I have to do a show, God bless the channel, production house and my swollen face — my face gets blotted when I get up early in the morning.

What do you think about me?
Amit: An absolute Mumbai girl — chirpy, bubbly and talkative. But you also have a big heart — you can never see anyone in pain. You are emotional and a very good human being from inside.

Will you do a show with me again as a couple?
Amit: Why not! I would love to do shows with you.

Amit shoots back

amit-birju-bbbDoes it really affect you if you don’t get the correct measurement of salt in your food?
Benaf: It doesn’t affect my diet at all, but I get cranky. I am mad about food and I want it perfect.

For what do you come on the sets — lunch break or shooting?
Benaf: When I come on the sets, I just keep waiting for the pack up time. I hate make-up, it’s so dirty.

What happens to you post 10 pm?
Benaf: I laugh aloud and spread the laughter everywhere.

As you are on a diet these days, will you come out for lunch with me?
Benaf: Just one week is left and then I can eat everything. I will surely go out with you and show you my will power — how I can gorge on food. And well I also workout, so I can eat and exercise.

What do you think about me as an actor?
Benaf: You are wonderful, understanding and very nice. I can’t forget the way you taught me how to romance on screen —patiently and nicely.

Who has a better body Gautam Rode or me?
Benaf: Of course Gautam. He works really hard on his body, while you don’t and that is what I like about you.

After we get married in the show and if I have to leave the show, will you miss me?
Benaf: I will miss you a lot. I will tell you to come on the sets so that we can have lunch together — even if the food is not good, atleast I can enjoy good company.
