Television actress Saumya Tandon is one of the wittiest and glamorous stars you would come across. Through her brilliant acting skills and sense of humour on the show Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai, the actress has managed to gain a huge fan following. The actress, who is back after a short break on the small screen due to health complications, spoke to Times of India in a recent interview, in which she seems to have subtly taunted at the typical saas-bahu shows, by saying how different a show Bhabiji is, and why fans like it.
Saumya Says The Show Was An Experiment
"Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain! was an experiment and I am glad that it worked really well with our viewers... well enough to give it 900 episodes. It's heartening to know that Indian television has a show which is so different as against various comedy shows and unlike the typical 'saas-bahu' genre".
She Explains How Her Character Is Different
"Anita, unlike the sobbing female characters who are hit by the pressures of their dominant 'sasural' or arrogant husband, is a very different, quirky, happy, independent, overtly romantic and strong woman."
The Fans Appreciated Female Dominance
The actress said one of the reasons why the fans developed fondness towards her show was due to the dominant female characters in the show. "An audience that wasn't used to seeing such female dominant characters, appreciated and connected with her really well. They are the guiding light for many who feel that sobbing characters still work", Saumya said.
She Empowers Women Even In Real Life
Saumya Tandon is not only an amazing actress, but a good cook too. She was once seen on The Quit, preparing gluten-free pesto pasta. While cooking, she also told how she met director Imtiaz Ali, whose movie she made a debut in, Jab We Met. She played Kareena's sister in the movie.
She Inspires Fans By Using Local Trains
The actress ditched her luxurious car to travel by the local trains of Mumbai. This is what she had to say, "Everyday, I struggle to get back home early, but if I leave the Naigaon set at 9 pm by car, I reach home only by 11 pm. And I've to leave again by 7 am the next day. The horrible traffic has forced me to use public transport. I have no issues traveling by train as it takes lesser time, but I'm appalled at the condition of Mumbai's lifeline - the trains are in such bad condition".
