In the ever-evolving landscape of Indian television, the drama unfolds not only on screen but also behind the scenes. Samridhi Shukla, the talented actress currently embodying the character of Abhira in Star Plus’ long-running saga, “Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai,” recently shared her perspective on the intriguing comparisons emerging between her show and the initial plot of “Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin.”
As the storyline of “Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai” takes unexpected turns, viewers have drawn parallels with the acclaimed “Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin.” Samridhi, however, remains poised in her response. “Certain aspects are beyond our control,” she shares. “As actors, our primary responsibility is to perform, and everyone involved in the production has their designated tasks.” While she acknowledges the audience’s perceptive nature, Samridhi emphasizes her trust in the team’s ability to navigate the narrative effectively.
The comparisons are inevitable, and as the drama unfolds, it’s a reminder of the challenges faced in the television industry. The audience’s discerning eye often catches nuances that lead to discussions, debates, and sometimes, comparisons that stir the entertainment world.
Meanwhile, Shehzada Dhami, known for his role as Armaan, has also stepped into the spotlight to address a different kind of drama – the scrutiny faced by the new cast members from fans of the show’s earlier generations.
In a heartfelt statement, Shehzada opens up about the hard work put in by the cast, urging viewers to consider the effort invested. “If we were chosen for this show, if we were considered qualified enough to carry the legacy forward, then I’d like to ask the audience, why the hatred towards us?” he questions. Working tirelessly for long hours, Shehzada emphasizes the commitment of the new cast to continue the legacy of the beloved SHOW. We are working diligently to give our best and entertain our audience. We are striving hard, and if we can reach even 70 percent of what Harshad and Pranali have done, we will be extremely Grateful .
With candor and grace, Shehzada appeals to the audience’s sense of fairness. “Please continue to love the older generations as you have, but also give us space,” he requests. “If you don’t like us, at least don’t hate on us. We are working diligently to give our best and entertain our audience.”
In the ever-changing landscape of television dramas, these statements from Samridhi Shukla and Shehzada Dhami provide a glimpse into the challenges faced by actors as they navigate the expectations and opinions of an invested audience. As the stories continue to unfold on screen, the off-screen narratives of resilience, dedication, and the pursuit of acceptance become integral chapters in the ongoing saga of the entertainment world.
