What Were Your Thoughts When the Show First Came to You?
Maheep: "When the show came to us, I was petrified. I thought it was a joke. I wasn't taking it seriously. Karan [Johar] just said, 'Listen, I'm going to do this show.' Then, Gauri [Khan] called me up ten days later and said, 'He's very serious about it. He's going to make this happen.' I was petrified, and I thought to myself, "Am I ready for this?" More than what people would say, I was scared that they would make fun of me. What is this reality show going to be like? My final thought was if my children were not on board, there was no way that I was going to do it, but they were so excited. Now that I have done it, I feel liberated. It's almost a sense of growing up because it doesn't matter what people say."
Seema: "[The show] kind of just fell into our laps. It wasn't a talked-out process or plan. When it started becoming a reality, I felt disbelief that this was actually happening. It was very daunting at first because I've never been in front of a camera or done anything like this in my life. The more I thought about it, the more I brought it up. I wanted my kids to be okay with it, especially my son Nirvaan since it would directly affect my kids. Nirvaan said to me, 'Listen, nobody gets an opportunity like this, and you don't say no to Dharmatic and Netflix.' And, I thought to myself, 'If nothing else, I'll have a story to tell.' I actually did it just for fun, it wasn't really work because these are my best friends. Now that it's released, I feel like it was the right decision because we've had some great laughs."
Bhavana: "When this show came to us, I was very confused and apprehensive. I wasn't sure if I wanted to do it and put myself out there, but I discussed it with my family, and they were all very encourageing and positive about it. They said I should definitely do something like this, especially since I would be doing it with my closest friends."
Neelam: "When the show came to me, I was extremely apprehensive of doing it because of my reservations of facing the camera again. I had basically chickened out of it just before the shoot. Now that it's out and we've gotten so much love, I would have been a complete fool not to do it. I'm so glad that it actually happened, and I eventually said yes."
