The famous TV actresses Delnaaz Irani & Tannaz Irani are sisters-in-law in real life as we all know. They last worked together 18 years ago in a play titled ‘I Do I Don’t’. They share a good bond of friendship. Tanaaz is married to Delnaaz’s actor-brother Bakhtyar Irani.
According to the reports, now after 18 years, the two talented actresses are all set to reunite for another play titled ‘Wrong Number’. More interestingly, they are playing the roles of ‘Sautans’ in it. Yes, you read that right!
Co-starring theatre veterans like Rakesh Bedi and Avtar Gill, Delnaaz & Tannaz will be seen as ‘Sautans’. Tannaz stated that:
“It’s quite funny to see people looking shocked when we say that we are playing Sautans. Since we are acting together after so long, they expect us to play Nanad and Bhabhi. Tannaz and I are constantly at loggerheads in the play. Initially, I was apprehensive about calling her a Kameeni. It’s not as easy as it is assumed to be just because we are actors; above everything, we are family. But that’s when an artist’s experience and talent comes into the picture. We have been doing theatre since years now, and have a lot of fun at rehearsals.“
She further said:
“At first, I was really excited about acting together after so many years, but then, the feeling seeped in that we are poles apart. In the play, I have to exhibit some level of intimacy with her husband and that reminds me of Bhakhtyar and me, which was awkward initially. However, we have now overcome that feeling. Delnaaz and I have these joking, bitching and fun sessions (laughs). I am just looking forward to recreating the magic, which we used to do a long time ago.
