Zee TV’s latest fiction show ‘Kyunki… Saas Maa, Bahu Beti Hoti Hai’ has been winning the hearts of the audience since its inception. The story touches upon its protagonist Ambika’s endeavour of disproving a general notion that ‘Saas kabhi maa, aur Bahu kabhi beti nahi ban sakti’ through a landmark decision of adopting a girl child but raising her as a bahu and not beti, who will keep the family together after growing up has kept the audience hooked to their television screens.

In recent episodes, Kabir (Himanshu Soni) finds himself in a dilemma as he has been asked to kidnap his friend Kesar (Navika Kotia) by Queen (Ishan Raj) so that he can get money to save his friend who is in the hospital. However, things go differently than planned, because they get trapped in a jungle, and end up spending a night together. To capture the essence of this gripping storyline, the cast and crew of the show went to great lengths and shot it in an actual jungle making it authentic for the audience. This led to, spending more than three days filming the sequence. Although all the actors are always up for taking on challenges and trying new things to showcase their best on-screen, Navika Kotia was particularly enthusiastic about this outdoor shoot. Her dedication to the role and her passion for acting were evident in her performance.

Navika said, “Ever since we started shooting for the show, we have always been on set. Although shooting indoors can be fun because of the comfort it provides, shooting outdoors, in natural surroundings is a completely different experience. When I learned about this jungle sequence, I was really looking forward to it. And honestly, I love taking up challenges and trying out new things as it helps me grow as an actor in many ways. Shooting in a jungle wasn’t all easy, and to be honest, it definitely comes with a lot of challenges. Despite that, Manasi Ma'am, Himanshu, and I had a lot of fun shooting for this sequence. We witnessed beautiful sunsets and sunrises. In fact, even spotted a few snakes. It was an absolutely amazing experience!”

While Navika is all excited about this different experience of shooting in a jungle, it will be interesting for the viewers to witness the drama it brings into Kesar’s life. In the upcoming episodes, viewers will see Suraj confronting Kesar about her night in the jungle with Kabir, questioning her loyalty. He goes as far as asking her to undergo a purity test, leading to a tense moment. Ambika intervenes, slapping Suraj for indirectly questioning her upbringing and his fiancée's dignity. The question remains: will Kesar accept these accusations, or will she stand up for her rights and fight back.

Don't publish articles to make out as if this show is very progressive. It is absolutely not. What is the point of Ambika slapping Suraj when Kesar is just going to run behind him like his personal pet?

She can lecture other men in front of the press for taking advantage of innocent girls. But in her own house, she just falls a little short of falling at the feet of the man who asked her to provide medical proof that she's not in a relation with another man.

Most regressive, disgusting show that I have seen in my life. And the audacity to create a farce like this as if it is giving out a very good message. Just take it off air already.
