Drashti Dhami has been the apple of her fans' eyes for about 7 years now, with shows like Dill Mill Gayye, Geet- Hui Sabse Parayi, Madhubala Ek Ishq Ek Junoon and Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 6. Lately, she even surprised her fans by stepping into the shoes of an anchor for Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 7. But now, with her superhit show Madhubala ending, and being sent from Jhalak 7 too, is she suddenly out of work?
Drashti Dhami made her TV debut with the hit medical drama Dill Mill Gayye, starring Karan Singh Grover. But she got her real big break with the show Geet- Hui Sabse Parayi, as a lead, opposite dashing dude Gurmeet Chaudhry. And after that, like they say, it was no turning back for the beautiful Drashti, as she got splendid offers like Madhubala... , and Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 6, which she eventually won.
These turn of events led to Drashti soaring to popularity, making her TV's most popular female actor. But off late, Drashti seems to be going through a rough patch, and no one seems to be considering her as a lucky charm. Starting with negative criticism for her hosting skills in Jhalak 7, to the ending of Madhubala, the question now arises, what is Drashti's next career option?
Drashti certainly does not seem to have another serial in her kitty, nor can she make a living with hosting shows, clearly. So this leads to the big question- Is it Bollywood calling for Drashti Dhami? That sure seems to be a possibility, considering that almost every guest on Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 6 had praised Drashti for her acting skills and looks.
Well, only time will answer that. But if Drashti is not doing a film, then will she consider taking the free time to enjoy a much needed vacation, or will the sudden disappearance from the limelight and tabloids leave her depressed and bored? More than that, how will her fans react? We will make sure to track that.
