Zee TV’s “Sarojini,” which showcased the journey of strong, bold and well-educated girl Sarojini (Shiny Doshi) married in a conservative family with a chauvinistic father-in-law Dushyant (Pankaj Tripathi), would telecast its last episode on April 30.
Although the storyline of “Sarojini” was unique and the chemistry of the lead pair, Sarojini and Somendra (Mohit Sehgal), was loved by the viewers, it failed to keep them engrossed.
Talking about the journey coming to an end, Shiny told the Asian Age that she would always cherish the time spent with her co-stars on the sets of the show. “It’s been almost a year that I have been associated with the show. I will surely miss the show and especially my co-stars — Dadiji, Neerajaji (Amma, who I am very attached to), Ketaki, who is more like my sister now and also my best friend, Mohit Sehgal. I will always cherish my journey and the awesome time spent on the sets of this show,” Shiny told the publication.
“The primary reason I chose this show was that Sarojini truly embodies the spirit and strength of every contemporary Indian woman — she’s confident and bold and at the same time has her family values intact. It drove a message that if you want to bring real change, it has to begin at home. I am sure every girl has, at some point in the show, related to my character and I would be glad if it has affected the mindset of people regarding the importance of educating girls,” she added while talking about why she had chosen to be a part of “Sarojini.”
A few months ago, the makers of “Sarojini” in an attempt to raise the Television Rating Points (TRPs), had spiced up the show with the death of Mohit’s character, which was followed by a three-month leap in the storyline. Also, popular actor Aamir Ali was roped in as the new lead. However, despite the changes in the plotline, it failed to impress the viewers.
Recently, the makers had also changed the show’s telecast timing from 6:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. to make way for new show “Vishkanya – Ek Anokhi Prem Kahaani.” Despite several changes, the constant drop in the TRPs forced the makers to pull off the show.
