Onscreen, the unique love-hate relationship and acting chops that cast members Sparsh Shrivastava and Anshumaan Pushkar brought to life in season one had a lot of people notice. Their relationship as cousin brothers on reel quickly translated off-screen as well.
Throwing light on the same, actor Anshumaan Pushkar says, “Rocky and Sunny are school drop-outs and have tried to make a living in the best way they can. That relationship looked a lot more real because Sparsh and I actually connected on a much deeper level and not only on a superficial surface level. We are like brothers even off-screen.”
He continued, “We built a great bond while shooting for Season 1. Our relationship has evolved into one of brotherly love. One that has continued to last even off-screen. I consider him as my younger brother and he relies on me as an elder brother. I feel it’s a ‘Jai Veeru’ relationship that we share”, he said with a laugh.
He also added, what makes his and Anshumaan’s bond special, “We are not friends but family. I respect his craft, his work ethic but most of all the kind of human being he is. Grateful that filming Jamtara has given us lifelong memories to cherish. I couldn’t have asked for more.”
Jamtara 2 is all set to release on Netflix on September 23.
