Actress Supriya Kumari was all pumped up about making a comeback on television after two long years gap with Mann Ki Awaaz Pratigya 2. She expressed her excitement when was roped in to play Chetan Hansraj’s brother’s wife in the show. She mentioned that the wait was worth it. But there were things planned in a different way for her. She was not aware that her journey on Pratigya 2 would be short-lived. Supriya’s track wound up in less than a month. She is not all satisfied with the work span as it ended on a very short period.
She says, “I began shooting for the show on March 15. However, I shot for just four days and that’s about it. After that, I waited patiently to report for the shoot, which never happened. When I contacted the creative team in April, they told me a few days later that I could take up another show. That’s when it dawned on me that my track had ended abruptly.”
She also quotes, “It is always a great opportunity for any artiste to work with producer Rajan Shahi and I was excited about this project. But to my bad luck, the association didn’t last for more than a month. It’s disappointing and unfortunate, but we can’t blame anyone. The situation wasn’t in anyone’s control.”
The actress says that it’s quite difficult to bag a new show during these challenging times. “A lot of people are sitting at home because of the lack of opportunities. Dekhte hain aagey kya hota hai. I am trying to stay positive till I get a new show,”
Rajan Shahi the producer of the popular show Mann Ki Awaan Pratigya 2 mentions “Yes, some actors were cast in Mann Ki Awaaz Pratigya 2. They joined the show after it entered the second phase. However, just when their tracks were shaping up, we were struck by the second wave of COVID-19. We had to move the entire unit outside Mumbai for the shoot for about three months and had to tweak the storyline. As a result, we couldn’t explore several aspects as per the original plan and give justice to many tracks. That’s when we had to make the tough decision of letting go of some characters. It’s unfortunate that something like this had to be done, but our hands were tied. In fact, we had constructed another set for the new family, which wasn’t utilised, as we had to move to another state almost overnight. Supriya is a brilliant actress and a good person. I would definitely like to work with her in the future.”
