I thought the same because Gul Khan and one of the writers said that when Arnav found out the truth, we would get to see redemption. Why would they say that in a print interview and not live up to their word later if it was something they never planned on showing? Mishit and Zee both said Khushi would get shot, Arnav would repent and hurt himself. I forgot because it was a while back but it was along these lines.
Then out of the blue came all the contract negotiation, quitting drama. And then, it seemed like they ditched the whole getting shot/redemption plot to focus on Didi Ki Saut. After the audience flat-out rejected DKS (and DB as a lead), it was a massive failure...the writers ditched the track in less than 2 weeks. So its not like she has that much power.
However, what is baffling is the direction the show took after that. Khushi leaving the house due to the contract marriage, Arnav acting like a jerk and forcing her to come back home, now all of a sudden the contract marriage is forgotten and they are acting like a happy couple. They had plenty of opportunities to give us a well-thought out redemption track even after the DB drama but they didn't. So I'm with Swathi, there has to be something more to it.
I love Sanaya but she annoys me sometimes...she is too laid-back and unaware of her surroundings. This is why they can get away with making a mockery of her character, give her the most atrocious outfits, saying she was never meant to be a lead even though she carried the show single-handedly for 2 months when the male lead was gone. She looks even better now for keeping the show in the top 10 chart by herself, seeing as its lower now, even with Barun back. How can this girl not take offense to what that pathetic GH said about this being Arnav and Anjali's story?
As it is, an actress is already at a disadvantage in this industry where the all-female audience is naturally preferential to actors...even leading actresses like Kareena Kapoor have to take a back seat and be nothing but the hero's love interest in movies like Bodyguard and Ra One. So you need to look out for yourself the way DB did. I didn't like her method of making it public (leaking stories to websites that she is going to quit, causing fans to panic and bombard the PH telling them to keep her, using that power to land herself a big fat contract and get them to change the whole essence of the show). But whatever she did, it worked.
Sanaya needs to be selfish like that...if not selfish, at least more ambitious...she has so much more talent and beauty (inside and out)...please don't let it go to waste.
@ bold - now I think there really is more to it.Its like they are giving anjali importance not because of the contract but because they really want to...which to me is extremely shocking and weird because these people have always been more into love stories.
What GH said about this show...that it was ALWAYS an arnav anjali story is obviously a lie,I am pretty sure even he knows it.
They sidelined anjali(not that I am complaining,not at all) and that is the reason DB negotiated,you don't sideline the character who was 'always' supposed to be the lead.Except the 2 DKS tracks this show has never been from anjali's pov.Arnav's pov?Yes of course!But never anjali's.
GH complained how we never give credit to people who work behind the cameras,he is right.It must be very disheartening to know that fans don't appreciate your hard work.
But didn't GH do the same to SI?Disregarding her hard work so easily because DB/anjali is suddenly everyone's darling.While SI in many of her interviews has appreciated the work done by Gul,the rest of the writers and even the technicians and the spot boys.
Even I get slightly annoyed but I guess that's how SI works,everyone's way is different.Also not taking your character too seriously and being able to mock it is better than defending your character out of the show.But yes of course I will be extremely happy if she does ask for a more substantial khushi.
SI does have more talent.I don't find DB lead material...its not about beauty because I think she is beautiful,its not about talent either because while I don't think she is the best actress ever I also think that its not as if she has never acted well...but still to me somehow she isn't lead material,I can't point out the exact reason.
