The audiences of COLORS’ ‘Neerja… Ek Nayi Pehchaan’ saw this maxim come alive on their television screen as the adorable bond between Protima and her daughter Neerja graced it. Enthralling the viewers, the social drama traces the journey of Protima, a sex worker who will do anything to secure a bright future for her daughter Neerja and protect her from Didun, the madam of Kolkata’s red-light area, Sonagachi, where they reside.
It stars actors Myra Vaikul as younger Neerja, Sneha Wagh as Protima, and Kamya Panjabi as Didun. While shooting for this heartfelt tale actor Sneha Wagh went down memory lane and fondly remembered her childhood days as she played a mother to Neerja. She confessed that she was just as energetic and inquisitive as Myra, and it would be amazing to have a daughter like her in real life.
Reminiscing about her childhood, Sneha Wagh reveals, “As an actor, I’m happy to walk on the road less travelled and be part of stories that are told with sensitivity and the intention to make an impact. I’m honoured that my tryst stories that matter is marked with Neerja… Ek Nayi Pehchaan. One of the highlights of working on this show is the chance to witness the brilliance of my reel daughter Neerja essayed by Myra Vaikul. I got to live my childhood again through Myra. She has the same innocence, curiosity, and drive to learn new things. I felt waves of nostalgia with every scene that I shot with her and every time she made me smile with her spot-on observation. My childhood was a series of unforgettable adventures, and I was like Myra - ready to live the moment to the fullest. This experience took me back to my days in school and showed me how my childhood experiences have shaped my life as an adult. I am very proud of this girl, and I have no doubt that she will shine wherever she goes. It would mean the world to me to have a daughter like Neerja in real life.”
