"I should have left Betiyaan long back…"Twinkle Bajpai

She first appeared on the small screen as a participant of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa. After that there has been no looking back for her. In her contract with Zee TV for two years, she was offered a role in Ghar Ki Laxmi Betiyaan. So acting happened toherabsolutely by chance. She says that in the beginning she did not have the minutest idea about acting. Today, she is exploring new avenues of her life and is all set to go places with her talent.
Confident and determined to make it big, Twinkle Bajpai believes that she will be appreciated and successful with or without the show Ghar Ki Laxmi Betiyaan.

Are you doing any shows these days?

Currently I am not doing anything. I have been getting some offers. Nothing has been worked out so far. I acted in the episodic show Phir Koi Hai after Betiyaan. This is the kind of show I like working on. It was very interesting because they don't drag the story. It is like working on a film.

Tell us about your career as a singer?
I have sung a song for a film called Riwaz. The film was nominated for the international films festival in New York. I wanted to participate in the singing talent hunt show Jo Jeeta Wohi Superstar on Star Plus but since I was doing Betiyaan at that time I could not participate in it. I am looking forward to participating in such reality talent hunt shows for singing. I am in the midst of talks with a production house for singing talent hunt but nothing has been finalised so far.

Any plans to join Bollywood?
I have been getting a lot of offers for films but nothing interesting has come my way. I am waiting for the right opportunity. If something good comes along, I'll grab it. As of now I want to focus on television shows and singing. The production team of Ghar Ki Laxmi Betiyaan had created unnecessary trouble in my life. People who I meet tell me that I deserve a lot and have a bright future.

Who is your favourite co-star from Betiyaan?
I like all my three sisters in Betiyaan. They were all very kind to me. We had developed a great bond. I get calls from them saying that they miss me. Smriti couldn't stop her tears when I left the show. But if you ask me to name one favourite co-star then it is Rohini Hattangadi.

Any regrets on leaving the show?
Not at all. I should have left it long back, that's the only regret. I really suffered because of the new production team. I was hospitalised several times. Once I even worked continuously day and night for five days and after giving so much when they try to tarnish your reputation, it really bugs. They should be thanking me for my co- operation but instead they harassed me which is so unfair. I am a dignified person. I did not want to blame any one in media but after they started tarnishing my reputation even I couldn't keep quiet any more.

Why do you think it happened to you alone?
Just two days ago I got a call from one of my co-stars saying that my replacement was already planned. They harassed me on purpose so that I would get fed up and leave the show on my own. They used to keep me waiting for five hours a day and on my entry on the sets, there would be no one even to open the door or carry my bag. I would have to call up production people, and still no one would come. This was the sort of treatment that I was given. The new production team is very disorganised and irresponsible. I'm glad I left.

Our Dear Twinkle,
Your decision to leave Betiya is absolutely right . Enjoy your rest, forget about past and I am sure you will get wonderful offers. 'Betiya' has lost the charm . I was wondering 'why this sudden fall?"? Now I know the reason.
All the best to you.

Nice article, thanks for posting Clap Wishing Twinkle all the best in her future ventures, hope you go to greater heights. We will miss her in Betiyaan, but the show must and will go on... with or w/o her. The present falling TRPs aren't due to her exit, because she was never the focal point of the show... and that was the best thing abt this show unlike other shows where there is only one main protagonist who acts like a James Bond, solving all the problems of the world. The TRPs have dropped due to the failing-to-impress storyline, and not to mention all the repetitive tracks as well. The show today is focused only on Saras-Bhav, and that too on the old track... nothing new going on. So obv, the TRPs dropping was expected. I hope the story picks up soon Ouch

yes, betiyaan has last its charm.I started watching this serial just for Twinkle.I saw her improving her acting and finally when she was going towards becoming a fine actress...all this happend and she had to leave the show.Why is it the production people wants to lose TRP ratings?It was good when Twinkle was there.
Now, Even though i know that Twinkle's been replaced...when i watch Betiyaan i look everywhere in the screen for Twinkle.... though Gunjan is present there in the place of Lakshmi.
Anyway, i stopped watching Betiyaan....since it lost its charm. Angry

Not even an act of God could turn this show around in the short-term. It
was so promising, so much fun to watch.

I have to disagree with you on some of your comments.

1st point you mentioned was the falling TRPs and that this was NOT
related to Twinkle's EXIT.     I don't think this is necessarily true. Prior to
her exit, make no mistake, the five people who were driving the show
were: first and foremost, Karan & Lakshmi, and then Yuvraj and Kajri,

The Yuv/Kajri track is so overdone and convoluted (dividing the house in
half with sindhoor? who actually does that?) that I deduce that the
creatives had difficulty being creative. Once K&L's track was ended, more
and more attention fell on Bhavishya/Ranbir/Durga. Now even that is
dragging. And no other COMPELLING track exists to fill in the gap.   I
believe if Twinkle was still Lakshi, she would have been more involved in
helping Saraswati with Karan. They were like hounddogs sniffing out
everything, and they had a rocking chemistry, as Yuv M. once said.

2nd point your raise is that Lakshmi was never the focus of the show. I
find that really hard to believe, given how many tracks have revolved
largely on her since the show firstt aired. Yes, the show has an ensemble
cast with 3 other sisters, but not the cleverest, daring of storylines would
make the ensemble cast interesting. Every serial on TV has ensemble
casts, but there are always 1 or 2 or 3 characters they revolve on. The
rest of the characters are wallpaper, torn off as needed to support other
tracks. It sounds bad, and I don't want to criticize the other actors.
They've been limited by some very bad decisions on stories and casting.

Just my thoughts. I have stopped watching as of late, but I do love the
premise of the show still. I read the updates, and so far the track really
has not budged. Let's see what comes down the road. I hope the magic,
romance comes back.
