ZEE TV’s flagship drama ‘Kasamh Se’ produced by Balaji Telefilms has been hit for six after one of the lead actresses announced her desire to quit.
Roshni Chopra who has played the character of Pia since the soap launched two and half years ago has had enough of the storylines constantly being centered on Prachi Desai who plays Bani.
Roshni’s character is due to be phased out by the end of this year. According to one of Roshni’s close friend, “Roshni acknowledges that Kasamh Se gave her career the initial thrust. So, she doesn’t want to ditch Balaji without giving them ample notice. She also has devised a good plan for it. She wants her character to slowly fade away with each passing episode. In this way, the viewers will not get a shock when her character is finally out of the show. This is a strategy to make her task a bit easier. She is trying to work it out with the production house.”
Roshni has been busy with her 25-day a month shoot for ‘Kasamh Se’ as well as filming ZEE Music’s programme ‘Cinemascope’.
When Mumbai Mirror contacted the star, she said, “I have been doing Kasamh Se for the last two years and I won’t deny that I owe a lot to the show. But, as a creative individual, everyone wants to satisfy their creative instincts and I am no exception. I want to do something new in life.”
“I have recently endorsed a jewellery brand. I have to give 25 days to Kasamh Se and a few days to Cinemascope which I am hosting. I hardly have any time for anything else. Though I have been offered a lot of new projects, and they are very tempting, at the end of the day I will always be loyal to Kasamh Se for giving me stardom,” she added.
‘Kasamh Se’ was one of the first soaps that turned around ZEE TV’s fortunes over two years ago, after competition from STAR Plus’ shows ‘Kyunki Saans…’ and ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’. To date, ‘Kasamh Se’ remains one of the most watched soaps on Indian television.
