Educating the girl child is being widely
appreciated by the Indian TV viewers. Afsar Bitiya
which has won the hearts of
the viewers completed 200 episodes tonight. The cast and crew are thinking of
throwing a party on the weekend.
The protagonist Krishna is now aiming even higher
in her career. When the show started she wanted to become a BDO Officer, now
she wants to become an IAS Officer.
who plays Krishna said, "Many
shows nowadays go off air in three to six months. So it is quite an achievement
that Afsar Bitiya
has just completed 200 episodes. This show is an inspiration
to young girls who want to study. Marriage is often considered as a speed
breaker for Indian girls who want to study further. Krishna is however
continuing to study post marriage."
who plays Krishna's husband Pintoo
Singh told us, "My fan following has increased further after Afsar Bitiya
just online as on india-forums.com
but offline too. Our show is very popular in
Bihar and among Biharis all over India. The labour class (Bihari auto rickshaw
wallahs and those working in petrol pumps in Mumbai) have told me they love my
character on the show."
Producer Raakesh Paswan was inspired by the real
life story of his sister Payal Raj who overcame all challenges to becoming an
IAS Officer. He told us, "Girls who want to study can relate to our show.
Village girls have returned to their books after watching our show. Girls who
were being forced to work as child labourers now are insisting on studying
instead so that they may become Afsar Bitiya
s like Krishna."
