“We all have worked really hard for the past two months on this show. The feedback has been really good. People who watch serials regularly have messaged me, saying that they loved the new concept and congratulated me on my performance. They found the serial to be very natural and close to life. These are like snapshots of life. My friends are supporting me,” says Priya, who plays the “simple mejo meye”. “My character showers a lot of affection on the father and the other four sisters, and shoulders many responsibilities, takes care of the father. She speaks up with resolve and dignity when she has to protest or be firm,” smiles Priya.
