Zee Marathi’s Agga Bai Sasubai is a breath of fresh air for many reasons. Not only does it show a positive and a healthy equation between Shubhra (Tejashri Pradhan) and her mother-in-law Asawari (Nivedita Saraf), it also shows a romance between the latter-a widow- with celebrity chef Abhijeet Raje. The show is being admired for its progressive and unique content. And Shubhra-Asawari’s camaraderie is the highlight of the show. So what kind of an equation does Tejashri share with Nivedita off-screen?

“We share such a strong bond off-screen that somewhere it reflects on-screen as well. Nivedita tai keeps telling me that it’s a pity that her son is too young for me or else she would have loved to have me as her daughter-in-law (laughs),” she says.
Ask her what she has learnt from Nivedita, and Tejashri says, “She is an immensely positive person and has a lot of energy as well. Even at this age, she makes it a point to get everyone’s dabba on set, early in the morning. From day one of our shoot till today, I haven’t ordered food from outside, even once, thanks to her food. I have never ever seen her tired or complaining. She’s super energetic and always making sure that everyone’s okay. In a lot of ways, she is like Asawari. I must tell you this- we shoot in Goregon east and she stays in Lokhandwala. And after pack-up, she changes into her sports shoes, and walks all the way back home. That’s how energetic she is and all of us can get inspired by this quality of hers,” says the actress. Wow, hats off to you Nivedita!
After this chat, we played a small rapid fire round with Tejashri. Check out her answers below!
