When asked if she would consider taking up the show if approached, Kanika responded, ''It depends on how they are planning to shape Meenakshi's character. Honestly, I was not very happy with how my character was shaped up in 'Tu Suraj Main Saanjh Piya Ji.' I was disappointed; they killed the rawness of the character. Ideally, it was not the sequel of 'Diya Aur Baati Hum.' We were just given that placement. I am sure Shashi Ji is going to write her characters amazingly; she is a brilliant writer. So yes, let's see what happens.''
