College days were some of the best ones in our lives. Carefree days of fun and antics along with our friends as we entered a new phase of life. College life of the 90s meant carefree days spent in the canteen gorging on snacks and singing popular Bollywood tracks with your group, bunking lectures to watch the latest Bollywood flick were few of the fun activities. Post completion of exams, the only agenda was to enjoy as much as possible, roaming around the neighbourhood on our cycles, munching on street food and endless hours spent playing television video games with our college buddies!
Randeep Rai who essays the role of Sameer in Sony Entertainment Television’s show ‘Yeh Un Dinon Ki Baat Hai’ that has successfully taken its viewers on a memory trip of the 90s by evoking nostalgia, has been reliving his childhood memories with his friends on the sets by playing video games! The inseparable trio of Sameer, Munna and Pandit are often glued to the video game constantly trying to beat each other’s high scores.
When contacted Randeep Rai confirmed, “I have always loved playing video games from my childhood days. Though I own a Playstation today, there is a different element of fun and charm to the old school video games. Mario, Bomber Man, Contra are few of the arcade classics that can never be replaced. The production house has sourced a lot of different things on the sets which bear the stamp of 90s and one of them is a television video game. Luckily, one of our crew members also had the game cassette and any time we get a break during the shoot, Munna (Sanjay) and Pandit (Raghav) along with me indulge ourselves by playing games on it. At times the production controller needs to request us to leave it and resume the shoot, that’s the level of addiction for games. Even in the current track, we will be seen hanging out with each other and enjoying college life to the hilt.”
