So,we took it up on ourselves to repair the damage through positive characters and correct representation of the Indian woman and her predicament as we are striving to do in our serials Bandini,Dehleez and Jyoti,says Shailja Kejriwal,executive vice president (Content) NDTVimagine.
On the eve of Womans Day,Parul Chauhan,who plays Ragini in Sapna Babul Ka ~Bidaai,on Star Plus,says ,I belong to Lucknow and coming to Mumbai was a big leap for me. But by the grace of God,I am doing great in my profession. I know what I have done and how much hard work I have put in. A day like this reminds me of my hard work and goads me to work harder and achieve my goals. It also reminds me of the hard work put in by my mother to make me what I am today. Appreciation in form of such days is definitely a good feeling.
