Tanaaz and Delnaaz are working together after 18 years on a play titled “Wrong Number”. They last worked together in a play titled “I Do I Don’t”.

“Working with relatives is really dangerous and working with relatives is difficult but working with Delnaaz is not like working with a relative. I think we both are very mature and senior enough as we do not let any non-sense get in our way . In real life we are sisters-in-law but I don’t think that we have ever displayed that relationship on set,” Tanaaz said in a statement to IANS.
