The two, who are starkly different individuals in real life, struck a camaraderie that grew into a strong friendship. They cherish their differences especially with Amyra being a quirky South Bombay girl and Mallika being a hilarious brazen Dilli ki ladki .

Amyra Dastur has been busy riding the waves, literally, in Puducherry and other areas of Tamil Nadu for her upcoming web series, Trip 2. The actress has also begun shooting for Mental Hai Kya with Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut. While shooting for Trip 2, Amyra’s social media was abuzz with images and videos of the actors having a blast on the set. But one particular co-actor, Mallika Dua and Amyra hit it off like a house on fire. 

The two, who are starkly different individuals in real life, struck a camaraderie that grew into a strong friendship. They cherish their differences especially with Amyra being a quirky South Bombay girl and Mallika being a hilarious brazen Dilli ki ladki. Their jokes and videos became so popular even on the sets that the director knew she had to cash in on this comedy gold. 

The director got Amyra and Mallika to write and add more scenes to their part of the script. When asked about their stint as comic writers, she said, “When we played off one another in the scenes, the ad lib just came in organically. It’s great to work with a director who allows her actors to improvise. Sonam loved it and encouraged our input during the shoot.”
