Yeah @durum... you are right.
The whole AT/MS fiasco was a major political and social issue of recent times. Not only would it be in bad taste on parts of the CVs, they could also attract lots of controversies and stuff if they really stuck to the facts of the case.
I think they're developing SKBM as political drama/thriller, with certain points borrowed from the real story- a politician who helps and eventually falls in love with an artist, as a result of which both get embroiled in a disaster. And as @durum said, if it really was closely following the case, i don't think Indian TV soap makers would glorify a character based on AT.
As far as our Brij is concerned, i DO NOT want him to be the one who orders the attack on Puja in cold blood. However, a part of me says that it IS BRIJ who asked the goons to kill puja (Please remember, I LOVE BRIJ, no matter what!!!). There are three reasons for my thinking so-
1) One of the goons who shot puja was the same guy who attacked Brij at the Mill meeting ... he was caught by brij's men, but eventually fled... i know this could also mean that some rival of Brij planned the mill attack as well as the attack on Puja, but then i feel my thinking is also pretty likely, coz Brij is a politician after all, who would try to win brownie points from the janta by holding talks to get the mill workers' strike resolved, then having himself attacked, etc.
2) the scene after brij gets shot at, and he is alone in his office... he takes out a gun from his desk drawer and says how he will teach 'CERTAIN' people a lesson... so its possible they will show some negative shades in Brij's character.
3) If Brij really is negative, then it gives Rahul Singh great scope for an amazing performance, of which he is pretty capable!! Agreed that there is nothing that compares with the sweet BRIJA moments, or when Brij turns up in times of distress as a messiah not only for Puja and her family but even other common people...but a negative Brij... a scheming, sinister political leader, in the garb of an angel would be a treat to watch too!!! A brij we woluld LOVE to HATE!!
A brij who is one thing for real and pretends to be something different...
I know... sounds crazy even as i read it again!!! but just a thought... dont presume i hate BRIJ ... please!!! Rahul singh has been my crush for the last 12 years!!! and Brij has only increased my LOVE for him!!!
