Her father doesn't want her involved in dance competitions or watch TV or anything that takes away from her education. So she does all these things secretly. She joins a dance competition and goes for the audition the day people come for her rishta. She finds out her in-laws don't like TV in their house either. She's not even sure if the answer is yes or no yet, but she goes for ANOTHER audition - again, against her father and now, against her POSSIBLE in-laws as well. She then LIES about her next audition and says she's going for a pilgrimage with her Buaa - dragging religion into a lie. And I'm not quite sure why she thinks she can get away with being on Chak Dhoom Dhoom without anyone ever finding out. It comes on TV!
On top of that, her Buaa is a flawed character, always giving her bad advice.
I just can't grasp the character of Simar. She seems to do everything wrong, in my opinion...that's just my opinion. I do like the show, but I find some of these things hard to digest.
I totally agree but i think they r trying to show that in today's generation it is also very important for a girl to live her life on her own terms and unlike before when she does what her father asks her to do till marriage and later live on the terms of her husband and in-laws. I like the concept but it could have been presented differently.
I think thay r trying to show that a girl should not be forced to forget her dreams and change herself completly but instead she should be allowed to live her life even after marriage.
