In that case, you haven't seen her last 2 serials. In Jyoti, she played the 2 personality roles of a girl suffering from DID, and it was a mind blowing performance - particularly the way she'd morph from Sudha to Devika & back - and they'd show it up close so beautifully that it was hard not to be impressed, even though I am one who normally ignores good acting performances. She'd play a timid girl always doing what others told her one moment, and when she'd get absolutely terrified, she'd switch to a fiesty & aggressive girl who'd wrap the world around her finger.
In RS, she did a splendid performance playing a blind girl for the first half of that serial, and in the latter half, got back her eyesight, and went undercover as a Tapori girl pretending to impersonate her original self. There too, she was awesome playing the Tapori role. So b/w these 2 serials alone, there are 4 roles she played beautifully. Plus 3 more serials she did b4 those.
That's what. This serial has done untold damage to her reputation - those who are seeing her for the first time are completely unimpressed, and under the impression that she is mediocre. If this serial is all that one has been seeing, then duh! Of course she'd look mediocre.
