Kishwer Merchant has done various types of roles and characters in the past and has been around for a very long time. The actress was usually seen doing roles in a typical saas-bahu show but the actress still proves her acting mettle with panache. Merchant gained a huge recognition after being a part of Bigg Boss season 9. She was last seen in Dipika Kakar and Karan V Grover starrer Kahaan Hum Kahaan Tum where she played Nishi (replacing Tanaaz Irani) but the lady is a bit upset to see how the show wrapped up.
To which she was quoted saying, “We all were very shocked for the end came despite having higher numbers than many other shows on the channel. But yes, I guess our 1 .7 – 1.9 average was always below than what the channel expected from a super prime time property. They need a TRP of above 2 to sustain in the long run. Ironically had the channel delayed pulling the plug; we might have still been on the air for its replacement show Anupama is now on hold due to the Coronavirus lockdown. The show would have surely lasted a month or two more,” says the lady to IWMBuzz.
She further quipped saying, “Yes, but then if ratings don’t come, what else do you expect? Most Star Plus shows are of the same variety, and even Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai is no different. We did start differently. I remember when I first entered (replacing Tanaaz Irani), producer Sandeep Sicand told me that Nishi would be a very positive character. But then towards the end, her graph turned entirely black. But overall, it was a fun journey. Karan V Grover is an excellent actor.”
Post the show, the Bigg Boss ex-contestant now wants to try her hands on something bold for the web shows. She said that she would like to try a lesbian lover role on the web. “I am looking to collaborate with big talented makers who will treat the subject aesthetically. Such guys don’t even need to go too bold,” she was quoted by the same portal.
