Goldie Ahuja – ‘I share a great chemistry with Namit, who plays my son in Goldie Ahuja, I have been one of the few fathers to have found my best friend in my reel son, Harry. On-screen, the chemistry is the same, we play together, study together, party together, he helps me with my homework and everything else that friends in school normally do for each other. Harry is my strength, my security and my best friend. Happy Friendships Day to Harry and to all those fathers and sons who share a lovely friendship like the both of us do.’
Harry Ahuja (Namit Shah) – ‘It’s been great fun working with Ashwin uncle, who plays my father, Goldie Ahuja in the our show – Goldie Ahuja, Matric Pass. Rather than a father figure, he is more of a friend to me, on and off screen. While shooting or not it’s so much fun to be around him. Apart from all the fun we have, he also helps and supports me in taking important decisions and has always given me his valuable advice when I needed it. I want to wish him a very Happy Friendship Day and I would like to tell all my friends that your father can also be your best friend.’
