Ratna Pathak Shah & Paresh Rawal on their real life love stories, not having work, rejecting OMG 2

It won’t be wrong to say that Hum Do Hamare Do seems like a complete Ratna Pathak Shah – Paresh Rawal show. Right from the word go, it’s their camaraderie that arrests all our attention. And in this unplugged, unfiltered interview, the two veteran stars open up about everything with utmost honesty. While the conversation opens with the changing paradigms of stardom, success and failure, it slowly meanders to a more emotional side when Ratna ma’am and Paresh sir discuss the bond they shared with their parents and how they cope up with their loss even now. Not just that, they also share funny anecdotes from their real life love stories – with Naseeruddin Shah and Swaroop Sampat – respectively and the common thread that binds the two love stories – Theatre. Then, both of them discuss points of professional lows in their lives when they didn’t get or have enough work and how life changed post a few iconic roles – be it Hera Pheri for him or Maya Sarabhai for her. Unlike others, they unabashedly admit their mistakes and failures and why certain projects like Hera Pheri 2 and Sarabhai vs Sarabhai Take 2 failed to work its magic and Paresh sir even shares the reason why he decided to opt out of OMG: Oh My God 2.
