Actors Tasneem Sheikh, Abhishek Mallik and Sonali Nikam, who are currently seen in new TV show "Ek Vivah Aisa Bhi", gatecrashed a wedding and surprised the bride and groom in Lucknow.
The Rastogi family was celebrating the wedding reception of their daughter Komal, when Tassnim, Abhishek and Sonali gatecrashed the wedding celebrations. Dressed as the groom's relatives, the actors made a grand entry with 'dhol'.
"We wish you great success for the show. It was just wonderful seeing the actors come on stage suddenly. Made our day," Komal said in a statement.
Commenting on the innovative promotion, Tassnim said: "I was a little hesitant not knowing how people around would react to us gatecrashing a wedding, but wedding is a major theme in our show. So doing something like this made total sense."
Tassnim said people at the wedding welcomed them with equal enthusiasm.
"The bride and groom had no idea about our visit, so the best thing was to notice their expressions. They were totally taken aback. The response we received from the people was overwhelming," she added.
Sonali said: "I was really excited and thrilled with this idea of gatecrashing a wedding. Our show 'Ek Vivah Aisa Bhi' is based on the lines of a wedding and I must say it was the most memorable moment to catch such priceless expressions of the couple and to chat up with guests."
