Anurekha Bhagat shares her learning from State v/s Ahuja co-star Ashmit Patel: Learned the importance of giving space to your co-actor to perform

Actress Anurekha Bhagat, recognized for her roles in Khuda Haafiz: Chapter 2 – Agni Pariksha, Upnyaas, and the Shahid Kapoor starrer Farzi, portrayed her first central role in the recently released Watcho Exclusives series ‘State v/s Ahuja’ alongside Ashmit Patel. In the series, Anurekha takes on the character of Deepa Sawant, a maid who accuses Bollywood actor Ansh Ahuja (played by Ashmit Patel) of rape. Anurekha has shared insights into her working experience with Ashmit Patel, what she gleaned from him, and one of her most cherished memories from the series.

Describing Ashmit Patel as sweet, happy-go-lucky, grounded, and a thorough gentleman, Anurekha highlighted her key take away from him, and shared, “From Ashmit Sir, I learned the importance of giving space to your co-actor to perform. As actors, we often tend to seek all the attention, but during our scenes, Ashmit Sir generously allowed me the space to showcase my talents. He fully embraced his character, Ansh Ahuja, without any airs of stardom. This gave me the power and freedom to shine in scenes where Deepa needed to be seen.

Opening up about one of her most memorable scenes from the Watcho Exclusives series, “Firstly, getting the character was something truly memorable for me. As an artist, you always have the hunger to perform and to showcase your versatility. One unforgettable moment on the set that will be etched in my heart is my close scene with Ashmit sir. After the scene, Ashmit sir and I were still in the zone, and the set went silent. Suddenly, Tarun sir approached me with a hug and said, ‘Amazing. I’m speechless. It was a perfect shot, this was exactly how Deepa would have reacted,’ and that was truly priceless. The entire set started applauding, and Ashmit sir put his hand on my shoulder and said, ‘We got this.’ So, it was a very special moment for me.”

State v/s Ahuja explores the life of Ansh Ahuja (portrayed by Ashmit Patel), a Bollywood superstar whose world is shattered by scandal when his maid accuses him of rape. As the story unfolds, viewers are drawn into a gripping world of suspense, investigation, and courtroom drama, where unexpected twists keep them on the edge of their seats. The series raises a compelling question: Did Ansh truly commit the alleged crime, or is there a darker conspiracy at play? Produced by Suresh Thomas under the banners of Crescendo Films and Amicable Crew, the show features an ensemble cast, including Jaswinder Gardner, Sarika Singh, Swapnil Ralkar, Apeksha Verma, Drishti Patil, Manish Jaitley, Arjun Krishna, Vicky Baidyanath, and Harsh Gautam.
