Namit Khanna still believes ‘Sanjivani’ was a highlight in his career, despite the show’s unexpected drop in popularity.

In an interview with Pinkvilla, Khanna said, “For me, the show worked wonders! In fact, it was exactly what my career needed at that point. From receiving immense fan love to being the face of such a cult TV show, airing on the top channel in the country, and working with many established actors. I couldn’t have asked for more.”, adding that, “Having said that, it would have been nice to have continued with the show for a bit longer as the characters were set up well and there could have been many interesting tracks in the future but the end of the day it is Indian TV and anything is possible. I have happily moved on now and looking forward to my next!”

The love Khanna received for his character Sid and his chemistry with Ishani (played by Surbhi Chandna) from the fans was the backbone of ‘Sanjivani’, according to him, “They had invested a lot in Sidisha and had high hope for the couple but I think the new tracks took it all away from them. The pair had created ripples in the industry and were trending all through the time they were around.”
