Zee TV’s Saat Phere recently completed 700 episodes. To commemorate this great occasion, Producer Sunjoy Wadhwa of Sphere Origin threw a party at a suburban club last night. All the major stars of the hit show were present including Rajshri Vaidya, Sharad Kelkar, Neena Gupta, Aanchal Dwivedi etc.
Sharad goes on, “One of the main reasons for continuing with this show for so long is that I have so much different stuff to do, given the heroine has undergone some much changes herself, at times she becomes a mad girl and at other times she ends up as a village belle”.
But has the story not deviated from the original fair vs. dark girl syndrome? “Not really, some strands are still there. At times even now Saloni is attacked on the ground of her skin color”, states Sharad.
Aanchal Dwivedi says that Saloni is the life line of Saat Phere. My character Kaveri is the spice which any show needs. “I have no problems with the loud make-up. I love myself when I look into the mirror”, says Aanchal. Besides Saat Phere she is doing Santaan and Sahara One dance show, Saas vs Bahu. She would not mind trying a lighter character but not the good suffering bahu ! “The audiences won't accept me in that light yaar”, says she.
Seen along with the past and present cast of Saat Phere were Gavie Chehal, Arjun Bijlani, Anirrudh Dave, Smita Bansal, Bhairavi Raichura and Anoop Soni. Hat Off Producers, JD Majethia and Aatish Kapadia also turned up to wish Sunjoy on his achievement.
