A similar name has created chaos on the sets of Rang Badalti Odhni. Yashashree, who essays the lead role of Khanak in the show, shares a similarity in name with Yash Patnaik, the producer of the show. Earlier, everybody on the sets used to call Yashashree as Yash as her name is really long. So the entire cast and crew preferred calling her Yash. However, when Yash Patnaik would be around it would cause utter confusion. As everyone on sets addresses Yash Patnaik as ‘Sir’ it would get awkward calling Yashashree ‘Yash’ in his presence.
Yashashree informed us that once there was an incident where both Yash ‘Sir’ and she were on the sets. She says, “It so happened that one of my co-stars called out for me saying ‘Yash’. Immediately ‘Sir’ responded to it and everyone was on a laughing spree. Since then I am being referred to as ‘Shree’ rather than ‘Yash’ to avoid any further confusion.”
Now this certainly defies Shakespeare’s ‘What’s in a name?’ theory!
