Supriya Kumari talks about the abrupt ending of her track in Mann Ki Awaaz Pratigya 2; says, she is disappointed
Actress Supriya Kumari recently made a comeback on television after two years with Mann Ki Awaaz Pratigya 2. The excitement of the actress dint lasted long as her track wound up abruptly in less than a month.
In an interview with BT, Supriya talked about it and shared, “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 further adds, “It is always a great opportunity for any artist 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.”
Supriya adds that it’s quite difficult to bag a new show during these tough 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,” she asserts.
Producer Rajan Shahi also talked about it and shared, “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 utilized, 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.”
