His Favorite Scenes of Geet: 

Drashti in the Dargah Sequence
Drashti’s Entry During Kurbaan Hua
The Entire Wedding Sequence
During the Early Morning Shoot.

The opening sequence that was extremely hard to shoot as the shots needed to be captured during either dawn or dusk. We shot for two days, ten mins each in the morning and evening. It was challenging yet, came out perfectly.

Golden Temple Amritsar
Memories to carry forward: I have very fond memories of Geet and get emotional every time I think about it. Drashti is brilliant as an actor and the most dedicated one I have ever seen. We shot the Golden Temple sequence in the month of May. The temperature was almost 48 degrees and it was burning hot, making it impossible for any of us to stand on the hot marble for even a minute. However, Drashti walked on the floor without even complaining once. Hats off to that girl! 

Fan Reactions to work: I have worked on many shows before, but it was only after Geet that people started walking up to me and telling me how much they loved my style of lighting. To me, the light and the set-up define any scene even before the actors and the dialogues come in. I feel thrilled when people notice the efforts that go into putting together a scene.




The best thing about Hrishikesh is that, you talk to him and you realise how emotionally attached he is to Geet, the Show. Despite working on two other shows that take up most of his time, he makes it a point to visit the sets of Geet to make sure he keeps his touch with the show intact. 



The makers are as attached to the show as the fans associated with it, as to them it means waking up to a morning where they have no place to go to! With so many emotions to convey on screen, these creators have to live them each day. The end of a show surely means putting a grind halt to hoard of things that come along.


Hope you enjoyed today’s Geet Segment! We will be back soon with another as promised!
