“Saath Nibhana Saathiya” one of the longest running TV show has become a battleground of ego these days, all thanks to the senior actors of the show.
Initially there was Koki aka Rupal Patel who used to get all the importance on the sets apart from Gopi, Devoleena. But now there are senior actors like Vandana Pathak and Amar Upadhyay who likes to do things in their own way.
Especially Amar Upadhyay has been known to behave in a high-handed manner. He doesn’t like to wait for scenes. He gives ultimatum to production if his scenes are delayed. Also he is very short tempered. He gets annoyed at every little thing and production people have really difficult time cajoling him.
As per a source on the sets of ‘Saathiya…’, “Everybody is scared of Amar Upadhyay. If he says that he has to pack-up at 5 pm, nobody can stop him. If he doesn’t like a scene or dialogue he will change it as per his wish or style. Writer’s or creatives thoughts are secondary for him. He doesn’t mix with too many people except Gaura aka Vandana Pathak.”
