Netflix’s new comedy web series ‘Call My Agent: Bollywood’, releasing on October 29, stars Ayush Mehra and Aahana Kumra as Mehershaad and Amal. Ayush is popular for his appearances in webs series and Ahana is known for movies such as ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’. The pair worked together for the first time on the sets of this show.
Reminiscing about shooting with Ayush, Aahana Kumra said: “Ayush and I had never met before Call My Agent, but when we met on set, we just clicked instantly. It just made work even more fun. Through the entire journey of Call My Agent, all of us built a friendship like no other—but I and Ayush are like Mehershaad and Amal in real life.
“We would pull each other’s legs, laugh a lot, eat a lot, and just be goofy together. It didn’t even feel like we had to put on an act on screen, it just came so naturally.”
Having clicked instantly, their on-screen roles became easier to portray as a result of their off-screen friendship.
Talking about Aahana, Ayush Mehra said: “Aahana is an absolute riot. She is just as, if not more energetic than Amal. I love that we’re such good friends because there is never a dull moment around her.
“It was so easy to do scenes with her, the banter just flowed naturally. It was super easy to mimic our friendship on-screen. I’m glad we were cast for these roles and I hope audiences enjoy our chemistry as much as we enjoyed portraying it.”
Call My Agent: Bollywood is the Indian remake of the French series ‘Dix Pour Cent’, also available on the streaming platform
