Stars back to work after a long break
stars have gotten a long break thanks to the strike that started on the
1st of November. And while they had a good time, it's back to work for
most now. But after all the relaxing and fun, many are finding it hard
getting back into work mode (with extra hours to make up for lost
time!) We caught up with a few stars to get their take on getting back
to the grind.
Kinshuk Mahajan (Ranbir of Bidaai) :
Kinshuk recently bought a flat in Malad and spent most of his free
time doing it up. He though is happy to get back to work and says,
"It's great to get back to work after so many days. We used to shoot
for 13-14 hours a day before but I'm sure we will have to increase the
hours now." When he gets back the first thing he wants to do is show
his co-stars how much he missed them. He says, "I'm going to hug all of
them! Aur hamare set par jo mandir hai wahaan pray karoonga."
Smita is looking forward to working again and the drive home from
the studios. She says, "I missed driving from my home to Vasai, where
the sets are." Smita thinks that everyone is happy that the strike has
come to an end and hopes that the work load won't increase too much.
She says, "Considering the strike took place for an official reason I
don't think our workload will increase too much."

Shubhangi Atre (Kasturi of Kasturi) :
Shubhangi feels that it will be a bit odd to face the camera after
so many days and that it might take some time to get used to it again.
However, she's sure that she won't have any problems of going back to
memorizing lines. Shubhangi is really looking forward to getting back
to work and says, "I've missed acting, especially the emotional
Siddharth Shukla (Shubh in Babul Ka Aangan) :
Siddharth made the most of the break by traveling and enjoying with
his friends. But, he's done with that now and he can't wait to get back
to the tight schedule and reciting lines. He says, "I'm really looking
forward to facing the camera again. It's been a long time!" Although he
says it will seem strange at first he's confident that things will be
back to normal in a 2-3 days.
Avinash had the time to catch up with his friends and even attend
school regularly! But, he missed shooting and is sure that he won't
have a problem facing the camera again. He says, "Ek rehearsal karoonga
fir koi problem nahi hogi. Script ke dialogues class ke lessons se easy
hain, buss ek baar padho aura a jaate hain."
