For the first segment of the event, Nakuul Mehta, Rubina Dilaik, Hina Khan, Apara Mehta and Sharad Malhotra take over the stage where all the female actresses talk about their distinctive characters in the serials.
Read on to find out their statements:
I've done Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, I've left the show but it's still doing well, which I'm very proud of. People from the same business or outsiders told me not to do a show so long. They warned me about being typecasted in the industry. All these things affected me a lot. What if people didn't want me to see as someone else other than Akshara? However, people accepted me as Komolika as well. I'm very happy about it that people are ready to accept the change.
During my show, I used to take a Pallu on her head. We wanted to send a social message among the audience. Many women came up to me thanked me for making people aware of this. They thanked me that Aapki wajah se humare pallu hatt gaye.
TV actress Rubina Dilaik enters the stage looking ravishing in an ox blood gown. She talks about the challenges she faced while playing a transgender in Shakti: Astitva Ke Eshaas Ki.
Television has unified as well as diversified India. I am from Himachal Pradesh, similarly people from different places come together and work in a same TV show. One TV show contains 150-200 employees. It has provided livelihood to so many people. And also, television has empowered women. See around, you can see the women more in number than men.
I'm sitting among so many experienced people here. I was thinking about this tagline TV Ka Dum whole night. People used to ask me when are you going to do Bollywood movies. However, I'm happy with the platform I'm on. Many people can't afford to go to theatres to watch movies, but TV reaches out to everyone. I don't feel like I have another box to tick.
Peeps, just hold your breath as the fun has just begun!
