For over two weeks, Narayani Shastri (Taashu) had stopped shooting for the Balaji daily Kkusum.
As the former wife of Abhay (Anuj Saxena), Taashu and her son Trishul (Akashdeep Saigal) were to wreak havoc in Abhay and Kkusum?s (Manasi Joshi Roy) lives.
But after waiting for her character and track to take off, barely two months after being called back in the soap, she has called it quits. Shastri tells us what made her take this decision?
“There was nothing much for Taashu to do in the track; she was going nowhere. When I was called back into the soap after over a year, it was for a specific purpose, i.e. to make Kkusum?s life go topsy-turvy. That was not happening in the track.”
“There are too many characters in Kkusum. Moreover, there are a bunch of negative characters presently. I didn?t want to be part of a group and mouth my lines every now and then.”
Narayani can currently be seen in the new look Piya Ka Ghar on ZEE TV, however her future with this soap also remains unclear; “Ever since the show got a new director and took a generation leap, things have not been the same. Former director Chander Behl had done a very good job with the show. Piya Ka Ghar had a strong storyline and never resorted to gimmicks. Now things have changed. Let?s see how the show shapes up in the next three months.”
