Sarwar Ahuja says he connects well with children — and that is the reason behind his bond with child artiste Riva Arora. “Mere Papa Hero Hiralal” tells the story of a father (Sarwar) fighting against all odds to save his adopted daughter’s life. Riva is seen as his on-screen daughter Gungun.
“I always connect well with kids. With Riva, the magical bond developed almost instantaneously. She is an adorable kid, and we had a wonderful time shooting together on the sets,” Sarwar said.
“I am delighted that the relationship between the two has grown to such an extent that she calls me ‘Papa’ off-screen as well. It is an honour. I cherish getting so much love and affection from young Riva,” he added.
