In a recent interview, Shweta reflected on her journey in television and shared some behind-the-scenes anecdotes from her time on the show. Speaking to Bollywood Hungama, she reminisced about the unpredictable twists and turns that characterized the series. Shweta revealed that the production team would often have episodes ready for an entire week, only to scrap them at the last minute. She recalled a specific incident where they were suddenly informed that they needed to shoot the next day's telecast despite having a week's worth of episodes prepared. The reason? Ekta Kapoor, the show's producer, had decided that the main character, Anurag, was going to die. This sudden decision led to significant changes in the script, including unexpected plot twists such as Karwa Chauth celebrations being interrupted by Anurag's murder at the hands of Aparna, a character previously considered a nice woman.

Shweta also discussed the role of TRP (Television Rating Points) in shaping the storyline. She mentioned that Ekta Kapoor was highly driven by TRP ratings and would often introduce drastic changes to boost viewership. "Every time Ekta felt the TRP wasn’t good, she said ‘kill someone.’ Every time the TRP was any less than 32, she used to be like ‘TRP girgayi kisi ko maaro,'" Shweta explained. This emphasis on TRP often led to dramatic and sudden plot developments aimed at capturing the audience's attention. ALSO READ: WHAT!

She pointed out that the scenes and dialogues she encounters now are repetitive and reminiscent of what she had done two decades ago. "People’s thought process has changed," she noted, highlighting the need for television content to keep up with the changing perspectives and preferences of the audience.




Shweta Tiwari's candid revelations provide a glimpse into the challenging and dynamic nature of television production. Her experiences underscore the pressures faced by actors and producers in maintaining high TRP ratings while also addressing the evolving expectations of viewers. As she continues her journey in the industry, Shweta's reflections serve as a reminder of the ever-changing landscape of television entertainment.
