Sony TV's upcoming ambitious venture, Pehredaar Piya Ki is just a few days away from going on-air and the wait for the same has been a long one.
Since the promos of the show went on-air, there has been a buzz across, where the concept has received a lot of flak and criticism. Several have pointed out on how regressive the look of the show appears to be and that Indian television continues to degrade.
In a vis--vis conversation with none other than Tejasswi Prakash Wayangankar herself, we asked her about this backlash and what does she feel about it.
The actress said, "I feel the concept of the show has totally been misunderstood. However, I actually like the reaction. Atleast, there is a reaction and I am glad they have bothered to give their opinions on the same. I am a person, who has always appreciated criticism and I am happy that the respective people are being honest about what they feel and that is what we want. Honesty is the feedback we wanted and we are actually glad we have received that.
She added, "Having said that, now that they have said all this, I would like to know their opinion after they watch the show. I am absolutely certain that they will get the answer to all their questions and they will love the show as much as I do."
We also asked her if she had anticipated this sort of criticism when she heard the story and then signed the show. To which she said, "Absolutely yes! I know that I am doing a controversial show and the things that came along with it were quite anticipated. Infact, if we did not have that, I would have been surprised."
We hope the actress has made herself clear and the idea is much clearer now.
