    In my opinion, television has a major disadvantage because the actors play a character for a much longer time than films. And often, their entire career depends on their first role because if you see, most of the actors are rememberd for their first roles and they may continue to be famous, but only to a leeser degree. And we cannot forget that new faces are preferred than the established ones, unless the role demands of a mature woman who can act! There are very few actors who are there in the industry because they are passionate about acting. And an actress' duration in this field is very limited, except for a few lucky ones. So many actress don't want to experiment, because that may either not click with the audience or the soap itself may not click. So it's safer to act the tried and tested roles than to try out something new.

    all EK shows have one woman crying and one woman as one of the worstvamps in the world.a million light years away from reality. thankgod ST is not a part of EK camp any more or is she? Parvarish is Ashtvinayak?

    no offense but she can not blame any girl regarding there similiar character attributes,as she was also a sweet simple and nice as Prerna.It all depends on how the production creates a character.I agree all girls seems similiar to her but no doubt all those girls has made their individual identities through their characters...

    I can see what Shweta means exactly, women are two extremes on tv, a vamp or the sweetest person on earth. Somebody mentioned EHMMBH, although I am not as big a fan of the show, because my grandma personally died of the same type of cancer and to some extent I wish it was more raw, the fact still remains that those characters are all still COMPLETELY GOOD. More grey and real characters are needed!!

    Nice article i-f... there are few artist's who have the diversity and have also been successful in creating a niche for themselves in today's times. I came across this initiative by ITC Vivel, Choo Lo aasmaan awards to honor women who have the courage to pursue their dreams and have been successful. Do nominate your self or your friends you have respect for and let the whole world know the stories. :)
