Not many would have anticipated the much-awaited and talked-about reboot Sanjivani 2 to become a failure. The show has everything going for itself.
From a great legacy to returning favorites in the form of Mohnish Behl and Gurdeep Kohli and finally, an attractive and popular on-screen pairing of Surbhi Chandna and Namit Khanna. But the show flopped and was pulled off-air in a mere six months.
Barely having spoked about it, Chandna recently talked about it an a video that was shared on social media. She confessed and owned the failure as she said, "Sanjivani back in those days was one of the best shows. It had actors like Mohnish Behl, Gurdeep Ji. Then you are coming with another season of it another instalment and that is another responsibility. It couldn't touch the (desired) numbers and I am saying this honestly and being very candid about it. And it happened because people had high expectations from you. But then people also fail to realise that there are lot many factors involved when a show doesn't work. Majorly their creative differences among the channel and the production or the writers. To get everybody on the same page is also a task. Keeping that also aside I feel it is a responsibility and I own up to it".
She added, "Jaise Sanjivani nahi chala itna amazingly well jaisa logo ne umeed kiya tha. So I also take ownership of it and say ki haan maine ek aisa show kiya jise mujhe umeedien thi but aisa nahi hua. But that's ok it’s a part and parcel of my career and I am going to own up to it. If a show becomes successful you get the credit then why not take the responsibility if it doesn't do well.”
Chandna was last seen in Naagin 5 and is shooting fir another project with Ssharad Malhotra.
