According to a source, Ruhanika, who is connected to Deol family, went to their place with her parents this week to meet Sunny.

Sunny gave some tips to Ruhanika, who plays Ruhi in TV show 'Yeh Hai Mohabbatein'.

The “Gadar - Ek Prem Katha” actor asked her about her role in the Star Plus show, which highlights two Indian cultures -- South Indian and Punjabi. Ruhanika shared that she only knows English and Hindi, which compelled the actor to teach her some basics of the Punjabi language.

“Sunny said 'you should know your mother tongue' and gave her Punjabi lessons. The actor also asked Ruhanika to come again for more information,” the source added.
