“I had to shoot a scene while I was in Seattle, with the help of my son,” reveals Puneet Issar as he shoots virtually for Sony SAB’s ‘Vanshaj’

Sony SAB’s ‘Vanshaj’ is a show that delves deep into the fiery conflicts within the Mahajan household primarily centered around inheritance norms. At the heart of this family drama is Yuvika Mahajan (Anjali Tatrari), who finds herself at odds with her cousin Digvijyay aka DJ Mahajan (Mahir Pandhi), who is eager to take over the Mahajan empire. The show also features Puneet Issar as the family patriarch Mr Bhanu Pratap Mahajan also referred as Dada Babu.

While shooting a recent sequence, Puneet Issar encountered an unexpected situation while he was in Seattle visiting his son during a break from the show. While he was abroad, he was required to be a part of a crucial scene, hence the production team requested him to film the scene at his end using his phone. This particular scene involved Dadbabu video calling DJ’s parents Gargi (Parinitha Seth) and Dhanraj (Gireesh Sachdev), urging them to advise DJ to apologize to Yukti (Anjali Tatrari) to prevent a crisis. Everything worked out in harmony as even in the show, Dada babu is shown to be in the US. Taking it as a challenge upon himself, Puneet Issar, put on his makeup himself, got into the character of Dadababu and shot the scene with the help of his son.

Puneet Issar, who essays the role of Dada Babu, said “Working on a daily soap requires a high level of commitment from an actor. It was an unique experience for me to shoot a scene by myself while I was in Seattle. My son helped me film the sequence, creating a wonderful memory of my work being captured by my own son. The scene depicted Dada Babu communicating with the Mahajan family via a video call during his trip to the US for personal reasons. Overall, it was a new experience for me, as I have never had to shoot my own scene in my long career.”
