Tu Suraj Main Saanjh Piya Ji star Rhea Sharma is all set to make her TV comeback opposite TV heartthrob Shaheer Sheikh and she is thrilled to be working opposite her childhood crush. Rhea told Spotboye.com that she was in Class 8 when she first saw him on TV and is looking forward to know what their fans are feeling about their jodi.
"When I was in the 8th standard, his show Navya was on-air and I used to like it very much. In fact, I loved all the characters in the show as it was a youth based serial. His character, Anant, was also very popular. That time I didn't even have an idea that one day I will become an actor," she told the portal.
Rhea who is on a brief vacation before her daily soap grind begins is looking forward to know her fans response to the show.
"Honestly, I wasn't active on social media from a long time. As I wanted some time off for myself, before I start working. But now, I am back and looking forward to know what my fans are feeling about our Jodi," she said.
Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke tells the love story of Naira's cousin Mishty and Abir. The initial promos suggest that Rhea is being pressurised by her family to opt arranged marriage over her aspirations, while Shaheer's character Abir encourages her to pursue her dreams and not marry a person who he has met only over a cup of tea.
The show's promo and the chemistry between the lead pair has got good response from the viewers. The show will air from March 18 and will replace Ishqbaaz.
