SPUNKY Sara Khan It’s campus time...

The spunky, bright and independent Sara Khan and Deepak Wadhwa, who play Alka Tiwary and Abhishek Tiwary on Dhoondh Legi Manzil Humein, have now become youth icons. The popularity of the two actors, who play siblings on the show, has reached such heights that the two actors were invited as chief guests for an annual fest organised by a Mumbai-based college.

Both the actors were nervous and tongue-tied initially, but the moment they took the stage, they seemed very confident. Sara, who is a qualified as a Neuro Linguistic Programmer (NLP) in real-life, made some interesting points in her speech which inspired a lot of students. Deepak advised the students to follow their heart, be it professionally or personally. Following this, the two actors had an exciting and interactive session with the students. They narrated incidents from their college life and travelled back in time. Well, we are sure their youthful energy and die-hard enthusiasm will only take them places and continue to inspire young India. Dhoondh Legi Manzil Humein airs every Monday to Saturday at 9 pm on Star One.
