Silsila Badalte Rishton Ka, which was aired on Colors TV, starred Shakti Arora, Drashti Dhami and Aditi Sharma in the lead roles. The show grabbed headlines because of its content. The viewers were upset with the channel, makers and the actors as they felt that the show promoted the concept of extra-marital affair. The show went off air after Drashti quit the show (as she was not comfortable playing mother on screen). But later, the show was aired on Colors. Recently, the show went off air.
The makers decided to air the second season on OTT platform (Voot). The season two that was aired a few weeks ago, stars Tejasswi Prakash, Aneri Vajani, Rohan Gandotra and Kunal Jaisingh in the lead roles. While Tejasswi plays Aditi's (Mouli) daughter Mishti, Aneri plays Drashti's (Nandini) daughter Pari on the show. The viewers are loving Tejasswi and Kunal's jodi. Recently, Tejasswi graced an award ceremony, where she was asked about the show. Read on to know more!
Was Tejasswi Prakash Reluctant To Do Silsila?
When asked whether she was reluctant taking up Silsila Badalte Rishton Ka Season 2 as the show received a lot of flak because of the controversial content and Drashti Dhami received backlash as she played other woman (Nandini) in Kunal's life, she joking said that she loves controversy.
Tejasswi On Drashti Receiving Backlash
It has to be recalled that Tejasswi was a part of controversial show Pehredaar Piya Ki, which received a lot of flak from the viewers for its concept. Regarding the backlash the show and Drashti faced, the actress told Spotboye, "I am so used to doing controversial shows. I just love it (laughs). I love controversy."
‘Audiences Will Sportingly Accept The Show’
She added, "Yes, the first part of Silsila Badalte Rishton Ka received a lot of backlash, but I think that was only because it was on Colors TV and we are now on Voot. The kind of audience we have now will sportingly accept it and now the show is on a correct platform I would say. So we will be accepted, but I really feel bad for them."
"I had no thoughts before taking up the show because I have already tackled a lot of negativity. Nothing impacts you until you're doing your job with 100% dedication. If you are good at your job people will like you if you are not good even if you do a non controversial show no body will like you."
‘Drashti Is Good Person In Real Life’
"For example people say a lot of things about Drashti Dhami for playing Nandini in Silsila Badalte Rishton Ka, but I know how good person she is in real life. And whatever backlash she has received during the course of time. It is not going to affect her career."
