Sucheta Trivedi, better known for the simple and slow bahu, Meenakshi, of Baa Bahu Aur Baby talks to Telly Buzz about the change in her silly conservative character in the near future.
The actress, who has her own fashion boutique feels there is a huge family discrimination in Indian television when it comes to the attire of the characters. “The main protagonist is always shown adorning fancy clothes while the rest of the family members are clad in ordinary clothes. Why this family discrimination?”, she demands vehemently. Sucheta was earlier seen in Ekta Kapoor’s Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki. So does the actress have any plans of returning to the Balaji camp? Replying to this, she says, “I have no problems working for Ekta Kapoor again. In fact, I would love to play the character of Draupadi in Kahaani Humaarey Mahabharat Ki.”
Voicing her opinion, the actress scorns the assault on Indian television spreading wrong values. Sucheta opines, “Television borrows ideas from society and not vice versa. For instance, see what is happening with the Arushi Talwar murder case. Social evils like adultery and dowry have been there since time immemorial. You’ll say we show people getting married 4 and 5 times, but do you think such people do not exist in our society?? They do, the only thing is that they are hidden. I give full credit to the industry for giving employment to a large number of people"
Talking about tying the knot herself, Sucheta quips, “I am receiving many proposals after Ek Packet Umeed. However, I am very happy being single. I have already been married to so many people on screen. Every day, I put on the mangal sutra to play a married woman, but then at night I am single again.”
