One of Star Plus' longest running shows, Diya Aur Baati Hum bid adieu to its viewers on 11th September, 2016 after a successful run of 5 years. The show's leading lady Deepika Singh aka Sandhya Bindani heaped praises for her portraying the role of a tough IPS officer.
The show emphasises feminism, by showcasing Sandhya, as the epitome of courage who chases her dreams of becoming an IPS officer. In one of her interviews, Deepika has stated that the character of Sandhya has changed her completely.
She told, ""This character has changed me completely. I have become more mature in terms of taking decisions." The actress has a huge fan following, not only in India, but other countries too. In fact, Diya Aur Baati Hum is currently being aired in many countries.
The actress recently visited Thailand on the successful completion of the show's 1000 episodes and performed Odissi. The actress shared her experience to a leading entertainment portal.
She told, "On the occasion of Diya Aur Baati Hum completing 1000 episodes in Thailand, I was invited by their channel to perform Odissi there. It was the first time when I performed this dance form in front of the Thailand audience. There was a huge gathering in the hall; more people wanted to come but they couldn't as only limited number of people could be there in the hall."
She added, ""It has been a great experience performing there and I enjoyed a lot. The response and the feedback from the audience has been quite amazing."
The actress is currently working on a new project, which is a web series. Way to go, Deepika!
