After being cast together in Mira Nair’s A Suitable Boy, Shahana Goswami and Vivek Gomber will once again be playing a married couple in Netflix’s Bombay Begums. While the former was a period piece set in the 1950s, the latter is a contemporary story about ambitious women trying to make it in modern India.
Speaking about working with Gomber, Goswami said, “So [Vivek] and I and, you know, it's really funny, we never met each other in all these years. We have so many common friends and we knew of each other, but we only actually met during the shooting of A Suitable Boy and we just got along instantly. We have great chemistry. We're great partners at work and the best part is we work very similarly. It has been an absolute pleasure and very easy working with him.”
Gomber said he loves working with Shahana. "For me, any scene with her is a great scene because I've had fun shooting it. That experience has been really good, because you're in a room with a co-actor who you can trust and who trusts you as well, you know. It's got to go both ways,” he said.
Bombay Begums, which also stars Pooja Bhatt, Amruta Subhash, and Rahul Bose, is due to be released on Netflix on 8 March.
