Crimes And Confessions: Shweta Gulati Shares Her Thoughts On The Popular Tv Series Remix, 'I Feel That Era Of Cult Shows Was Back Then And Another One Can Never Happen'-EXCLUSIVE

Back in 2003, when Remix aired, it made Shweta Gulati who played Tina Ahuja in the show a household name. 18 years later Shweta Gulati, who is currently seen in ALTBalaji’s Crimes and Confessions, is still remembered for the show. After being a part of an iconic TV series Remix which has now received a cult status Shweta feels no shows in the current time could attain cult status. She is clear that there can’t be another Remix in today’s time. 

 “I feel that era of cult shows was back then. I don’t know if that is going to come back ever. Because of the kind of exposure that social media and the internet have given, it is highly unlikely. Remix gave that kind of exposure to society. The social issues that we tapped on back then were never heard of. Today everything is out in the open. Things have changed. We have access to the internet, we have so much of exposure to life in general. I don’t think that CULT status is going to happen again. We can definitely aim at looking at subjects that have not been presented before to the audience. Subjects which are more real, subjects which are more relatable, subjects that we shy talking about. That’s exactly what my story in Crimes and Confessions is about. My story is something that we shy away from talking about and accepting. We could work towards making subjects which are needed to be spoken about, told, and presented. I think that’s what we can aim at, but cult I don’t think so can happen. Another Remix can never happen,” Shweta explains.

 Talking about her show Crimes and Confessions which is currently streaming on ALTBalaji, Shweta reveals that she didn’t have inhibitions to be a part of the show. However, she did have a few concerns. “My only problem was that I did not want to go back to the glamourous image. It took me 17 years, to break away from that bloody glamorous image and to go back there!” she sighs and adds, “I didn’t want to go back into the reverse journey. So that was my only inhibition. I had no inhibitions about playing whatever, I had no inhibitions about being the bold character that Rekha, my character is. I was just worried about my image. I didn’t want to get into the glamourous image back then.”

For the unversed, Crimes and Confessions is an anthology series with four stories that are set in different eras. In addition, every episode of the series has a confession post facto a crime. We get to see varied shades of human relationships, in the series which dropped on ALTBalaji and is currently streaming on the OTT platform.
