Yes guyz.. I felt like defending his actions a bit. I know right now everybody wants to strangle him for tattering the engagement. But I'm thinking putting myself in his shoes.
Anyone would want the person to get punished who had harmed him. Shaswat had printed bogus reports in his daily newspaper, agreed.
But the way he was attacked by Tejal, was also not right. She could have chosen a legal way to sue him. I know Tejal's character is of a hyper girl who believes in fair dealing and immediate actions. Nevertheless, she caused him injury and he would definitely want her to get penalized.
Who would want to share the roof with the person you dislike the most?? Surely no-one..
As the audience we know who is right and who's wrong. But if we put ourselves in that positions and analyze, we'll realize and develop same feelings.
At least he is not a negative character (like the vamps in other serials) who keep on plotting odd situations to cause troubles to the leads. Whatever he did was very natural and can be mapped as a real life scenario. Right now, Nikhilesh is only the wise man out of all. He did not blindly defend Shaswat and did not deduce solution without listening the allegations of Tejal. But unfortunately, Tejal did not get a chance to explain herself. Everytime her voice suppresed under others shouts.
Shaswat will of course get his due in the coming times. Once Sanyukta finds out the root cause of all the problems, she is not going to spare him.
Therefore, I want to shield him a little before the poor guy gets snagged..
