Shaurya Aur Anokhi Ki Kahani on Star Plus went off-air earlier this week but the fans continue to celebrate the show and how. Featuring Karanvir Sharma and Debattama Saha in the titular roles, both of them have managed to garner a lot of applause for their performances, the show, and more.
India Forums got in touch with Debattama and she spoke about the journey, the reunion, and ongoing trends for the show. Read excerpts from the interview here.
First things first, tell us how has the journey been for you so far?
The journey has been amazing, on a serious note, I have taken a lot of things with me and a lot of memories, and it was the best to date, and I still feel like being called Anokhi, so that's how beautiful the journey has been.
The show continues to trend on social media days after the last episode, how overwhelming does it get?
You know, I never thought I'll get so much love and it is overwhelming because even I have been giving interviews and noticing people and their love, still I get tags, etc, people texting, and wanting to know about us. I feel blessed and grateful about it.
As an actor, what would you say has the growth curve been for you with this show?
As an actor, I feel I have improved a lot, also working with such amazing actors, I have learned a lot, my co-star was amazing and so was everyone else. I learned so many things from them like even I wanted to improve every day, and like I kept telling everyone, being Anokhi in itself is a journey, so sometimes I felt as if I don't have to act, it is the feelings within me that is helping me be Anokhi, so that's the best thing that happened to me.
Do you ever sit and wonder what went wrong with the show?
I never sit and wonder what went wrong with the show, I get nostalgic sometimes because it was a beautiful show, and I just hope for the best in the future.
You had a reunion soon after the final day of the shoot, what was that like?
The reunion was crazy, and I also posted videos on social media because we went crazy seeing each other after so many days, and we are so attached to one another, and we loved one another, so we all were very very happy. (smiles)
What are you looking forward to doing next, something that's always been there on your bucket list?
I am looking forward to doing a web series maybe, if I get auditions, I would definitely love to do that, and some strong character again, like whatsoever it is, to bring justice to the character. I haven't planned anything, and not doing anything just yet.
