TV actresses Delnaaz Irani & Tannaz Irani last worked together 18 years ago in a play titled  'I Do I Don’t'. Both of them were good friends & later they became sisters-in-law after Tanaaz tied the knot with Delnaaz's actor-brother Bakhtyar Irani. Now after 18 years, the two talented actresses are all set to reunite for another play titled 'Wrong Number' & there's a twist for their fans. Reportedly, they will be playing the roles of 'sautans' in it.

Yes, you read that right!

Co-starring theatre veterans like Rakesh Bedi and Avtar Gill, Delnaaz & Tannaz will be seen as 'sautans' who are at loggerheads with each other in the play.

Married for 14 years, this POPULAR TV couple to ACT together for the FIRST time!

Delnaaz opened-up about working with Tannaz after a long time & that too as a 'sautan', she told a leading daily that,"It’s quite funny to see people looking shocked when we say that we are playing sautans. Since we are acting together after so long, they expect us to play nanad and bhabhi. Tannaz and I are constantly at loggerheads in the play. Initially, I was apprehensive about calling her a kameeni. It’s not as easy as it is assumed to be just because we are actors; above everything, we are family. But that’s when an artiste’s experience and talent comes into the picture. We have been doing theatre since years now, and have a lot of fun at rehearsals."

When Tannaz was asked about the same, she told the daily that, "At first, I was really excited about acting together after so many years, but then, the feeling seeped in that we are poles apart. In the play, I have to exhibit some level of intimacy with her husband and that reminds me of Bhakhtyar and me, which was awkward initially. However, we have now overcome that feeling. Delnaaz and I have these joking, bitching and fun sessions (laughs). I am just looking forward to recreating the magic, which we used to do a long time ago."

On being asked about Bhakhtyar’s reaction on them playing 'sautans' in the play, Delnaaz further told TOI that, “Nothing. He just asks us if we are making Mughal-E-Azam because we return home very late post rehearsals (laughs).
