Actress Sadia Siddiqui can't stop beaming. Why? The actress, who plays Priyanka in 'Satrangi Sasural', will have her brother Farhaan join the show soon.
The Siddiqui siblings will be seen together for the first time on the screen. Farhaan, who has dabbled in theatre, films and serials, will be paired opposite actress Resham Tipnis. His character, Raunak Punjabi will be younger to Resham in the show. Says the actor, "Sadia is one of the main reasons I took up the offer. It's going to be exciting shooting with her. I look up to her. We never got the opportunity to work together as I was doing my things — theatre and travelling. Besides, I was sceptical of TV because of its erratic schedule and unpredictable nature. But she felt that I was apt for the role that was offered to me, and I took it up."
The actor says that Sadia is a protective sister and likes to cocoon him. He says, "She treats me like a baby brother and often starts mothering me, which can get a little annoying (laughs). But I learn a lot from her." While he hasn't worked with his sister before, the actor has featured with Resham in the play Coincidentally, the two played spouses and he, the younger husband in it. "Fortunately, we will not have to work hard on our chemistry as we are comfortable with each other," says he.
