Your update had such a REAL feel to it that for a while I forgot that Mina was a fictional character but someone as real/ identifiable as any other 'Indian' girl. Exactly; I can understand Mina's issue (not that I've expereinced it mind you LOL!) but the burden of being an NRI's child, in a western world, trying to find a neiche in between. There are stigmas and expectations which are never really gone even after parents have long left the mother land- not from the parents per say, but individuals in the indian community. Too much taboo.
In the earlier updates the way Mina was portrayed, she might've seemed to a lot of us as a girl treading on the dark/ grey side or some one who would evoke a WTH reaction from us as ManVeer is what all of us are concerned about... but this update showed that there is more to Mina than just a girl who had sex with Uday. You've done a commendable job portraying the emotional turmoil of a 21 year old going through such a phase
. You have brought in layers in her character (from a rich, powerful businesswoman to a vulnerable, heartbroken female to a single parent... VERY REAL, I must pinpoint). Thank you! I didn't want to unwrap her charecter all at once, infact this is what I had hopped for. Initial reaction to mina was "OMG! MANVEER VILLIAN! I HATER HER!" etc, but I've wanted bits and peices of her to pop up from the past and show the readers that no, this girl is how she is (cold, and distant) because she was MADE that way. She's a powerful charecter, infact I really think if Manyata and Mina had met under any other circumstances they would have been the best of friends.
Now, just one request Reeha... plz don't portray Manyata as some Devi who accepts Uday's new father avatar + his child just like that. I know she will try to work through it as you mentioned earlier and will fail and I want to you show it beautifully that a girl just doesn't have to accept everything that is dished out to her... she can say NO to it as well/ make Uday realize that his sex-capades affect other people's lives as well and people are not just use and throw materials even though ManVeer is the endgame..., which makes me wonder how Uday would react to M's decision?
. Will her accept her leaving him or will he try to fight/ confine her towards him in some way as we know Yuvraj Udayveer Singh does not give up?... Many many questions are arising. Trust me, M is NOT going to be all accomodating; thats not to say she doesn't like Aditya, she will be a good "step mom" but the truth is, Uday will not be so easily forgiven. JNCs will show why. Eventually.
A very thought provoking update (at least for me) in terms of Mina's character... by seeing her tainted side in detail.
