MUMBAI : Keerti Nagpure is currently seen as Tulsi in Prateek Sharma's "Pyar Ka Pehla Naam Radha Mohan". A blurry image decked in a beautiful red saree is what the viewers get to see when it comes to her role and the actress revealed that initially, she was apprehensive about the audience's feedback on her character.
She said, "We are getting a very good response. The DMs and comments I get are nice. First, we were worried that the audience would not accept seeing a ghost on-screen, but people are loving Tulsi's character as she is a good soul and is very protective towards her daughter. People like this mom-daughter duo and also love the connection between Mohan and Tulsi. We will try to make it better so people will keep loving us."
Keerti feels that the USP of the show is that all the characters are different from each other. She added, "My character is dead in the show for all the other characters, but not for the audience. Not everyone can see me, but for the audience, I am there and that is the uniqueness. The character of Radha is also different. She is innocent and bubbly and adorable. Everyone's character is unique. Kaveri's character has comedy with a tinge of negativity. Even Kadambari's character is different as she is shown as a sweet mother."
The content on TV has evolved and gone are the days of saas-bahu sagas, and Keerti feels that the audience likes to see more relatable content now.
"If the makers show that the heroine is following her dreams or is taking her hobby forward, then people get inspired from that. Seeing it people get to know that you have responsibilities towards yourself as well and looking after the house is not the sole job. Now we don't have the typical saas-bahu shows but every story has a saas and a bahu. You can see their drama but the main focus of the story is different. People like watching the chemistry between the hero and heroine," she said
"I think the audience has become like that. OTT platforms have different subjects and the audience likes them. The perspective of the audience has changed and they don't like to see the atyachar on women, they want to see strong women characters. The audience likes strong, independent women and things are changing on TV gradually," Keerti concluded.
