Yashashree misses Harpreet

Harpreet and Yashashree.Suraj (Harpreet Singh), who plays the protagonist in Rang Badalti Odhni, is a very friendly and jovial person offscreen and everyone on the show is very fond of him.
As per the storyline of the serial, Suraj who is married to Khanak (Yashashree Masurkar) dies because of Shantanu (Karan Tacker).

But now the cast and crew is unable to digest the fact that Suraj is no longer shooting with them. According to Yashashree, Suraj is a simple and innocent guy.

She says, “He is not meant for today’s generation. I don’t know how will he be able to survive in this mean world with such an innocuous attitude. I remember when we had to shoot his death scene and had to sit around him crying, he would burst out laughing.”

“We actually had to tell him to stop making fun as it was a serious scene. Suraj used to create a very positive atmosphere on the sets.”

Adds Yashashree, “When I was informed about his death sequence, I called him immediately and expressed how much I will miss him. We were not in a stage to accept the fact that he has to leave the show. I couldn’t see his photo with flowers on it. It was very painful. I wish he could come back. Everybody on the sets wants him back.”

Journey of life

The word ‘marriage’ fills every young girl’s heart with trepidation, anxiousness and doubt. Star Plus redefines these emotions in its brand new show, Saath Nibhaana Saathiya, which evolves around two girls, Rashi and Gopi, as they set out on their journey of marriage. The programme premieres on May 3 and airs every Monday to Friday at 7 pm.

Saath Nibhaana Saathiya revolves around two young girls, Gopi and Rashi, who have diverse hopes, dreams and expectations from life. Raised by her despotic mami, Gopi is a naive, orphaned girl. She has always been ill-treated by her aunt and cousin. Being deprived of mother’s love all her life, Gopi lives with only one expectation from
life — an affectionate life partner and a motherly sasuma.

Rashi, in contrast, always believes in having her own ways. She wants to get married in an affluent family. Her desires from life are quite averse to Gopi’s as she wishes to have a husband and a mother-in-law, who would always give in to her. Being Gopi’s cousin, Rashi has never been like a sister to her and has always treated her as a maid.

Two new faces will be essaying the role of the leads, Jiaa Maanek as Gopi and Rucha Hasabnis as Rashi. Will Rashi and Gopi get what they want or does destiny has something else in store for them? Tune into find out.
