I was ner­vous only on the first day of the shoot, as I had seen Aftab in Mast dur­ing school, and like ev­ery other girl, I too thought he was cute! Shrad­dha Das, ac­tor

Ac­tor Shrad­dha Das (left), who will be seen in the third in­stall­ment of the Masti fran­chise, can’t stop talk­ing about her co-star, ac­tor Aftab Shiv­dasani (inset).

Ac­cord­ing to a source, “While grow­ing up, Shrad­dha had a crush on Aftab af­ter she saw him in Mast (1999). So, when she was of­fered the cur­rent film and was told that she will be paired along­side Aftab, she was pretty kicked,” says a source.

When con­tacted, Shrad­dha, who has re­placed ac­tor Kainaat Arora in the film, says that although she was ner­vous ini­tially, a cour­te­ous Aftab made her com­fort­able. “Aftab is very pro­fes­sional and has amaz­ing comic tim­ing. And he wasn’t in­tim­i­dat­ing at all. I was ner­vous only on the first day, as I had seen him in Mast dur­ing school, and like ev­ery other girl, I too thought he was cute! I guess, he sensed that I was a lit­tle ner­vous, so he chat­ted up and helped me in my scenes. It be­came quite fun to work with him,” she says. “For a scene, I was sup­posed to hit him, but I was find­ing it dif­fi­cult to do so. He laughed and said it was ok, and it was just a scene,” she adds.
