Ishq Mein Marjawan’s second season is currently being aired and the show has already amassed a huge fan base. The new season features Helly Shah, Rrahul Sudhir and Vishal Vashishtha in the lead role. Recently, a scene involving a suitcase was shown in the episode. It triggered a hilarious meme fest over social media. It so happened that Helly Shah’s character, Riddhima is locked inside a suitcase and thrown into the pool by her alleged lover Kabir. The way Riddhima was tucked into the suitcase had created a stir on social media. And now, the actress has reacted to the same.
“Yes, the response on social media has been quite funny, and I take it sportingly. We incorporated that scene to create some drama and intrigue the audience. Some sequences can come across as funny or exaggerated, and in a daily soap, not everything can be relatable. As an artiste, my job is to play the part convincingly. That’s (how she managed to fit in) exactly what my mother asked me after watching the scene. I don’t know how, but I fit into the first suitcase that was brought on the set despite wearing a heavy lehenga. Having said that, it wasn’t as easy as it looks. Though not at a stretch, I was inside that suitcase with my body contorted for about 45 minutes. I had a terrible neck pain a day later,” Helly told Times of India.

Earlier, Helly had opened up on the show saying, “A thriller show was always on my bucket list and with Ek Baar Phir… Ishq Mein Marjawan, I am going to strike it off. My character is of a simple orphan girl who is trying to find her footing in Mumbai. Having craved for love and sense of belonging all her life, Riddhima’s sole dream is to find love and marry the person. Completed besotted by Kabir, Riddhima not only starts falling in love with him but also in his trap that changes her life forever. I hope the audiences like what we have to offer and appreciate our efforts.”
Meanwhile, Rrahul Sudhir who plays Vansh Raisinghania on the show was found COVID-19 positive recently. He has quarantined himself at home and the shooting has been temporarily suspended.
