Exclusive! Uunchai actor Sarika: The 'family' feeling is constant with Rajshri Productions

After starting her career as a child actor and gaining huge popularity, Sarika’s first film as a teenager and female protagonist was Geet Gaata Chal, produced by Rajshri Productions, which released in 1975. Since then, the National Award-winning actress says, she has developed a family like bond with the production house and the people over there.

The banner recently completed 75 years of its journey and is gearing up for the release of its new feature film Uunchai, starring Sarika, alongside Amitabh Bachchan, Anupam Kher, Boman Irani and Neena Gupta.

Sarika told OTTplay, " One of the things that are constant with the Rajshri Production film set is they always work with efficient and warm-hearted people. They really are wonderful people and everyone on the set of the film and also otherwise are treated as equal. I have worked with them earlier as well and I can say this from my heart...this is not a promotional line I am saying because our film is releasing; honestly, when you collaborate with people who are very loving and caring by nature, kaam karne ka maaza hi double ho jaata hai."

The actress has been working for more than four decades now, working with multiple production houses, and she mentions that not every place is as homely as Rajshri Productions.

The actress earlier has worked in many films produced under banners like Yash Raj Films, Dharma Productions apart from many indie filmmakers.

She said, " Look, every time we cannot get a great production to work with and that is ok. We have come here to work, not necessarily to make friends, and family and build relationships (laughed), whatever it is we work and move on. But with the Rajshri family, we are treated as family and having a legacy of 75 years, is proof of that."

The film Uunchai, directed by Sooraj Barjatya, is releasing in theatres on November 11.
