Cricket & Cinema Brings The 'Happy Bhag Jayegi' Gang Together
There are usually two scenarios when multiple stars are shooting together — either they end up hating each other or they get along so well that they form a lasting bond of friendship.
Thankfully, it is the latter that happened with the Happy Bhag Jayegi stars — Abhay Deol, Diana Penty, Jimmy Sheirgill, Ali Fazal and Momal Sheikh.
The Happy Bhag Jayegi star cast got along so well that they were almost inseparable and would hang out together even after pack-up.
Post a long day at the shoot, the gang would unwind over a game of cricket or would party together.
“We all are cricket enthusiasts and we used to play a proper match, we even got jerseys made for each one of us,” revealed actor Ali Fazal. He added, “It was so much fun, we fought and laughed a lot while playing.”
That’s not all, the ‘Happy’ buddies often sat together and had chat sessions in between shots and lunch breaks, where they gathered a lot of trivia about our neighboring country, thanks to Pakistani actor – Momal Sheikh.
In fact, Momal was everyone’s favourite on the sets and she shared a lot of stories from her side of the border and discussed their way of life in their films and television industry. Recalling their time together Ali said, “Momal was so much fun on the sets. We often pulled her leg but she always had fast and witty comebacks for us. She was the jaan of our team.”
Well, what they say about cinema has the power to bring people together? We hope these new BFFs continue to share a warm camaraderie forever.
Cheers to their ‘Happy’ asli yaari.
