Pooja Gor was excited to return to television a few months ago with the second season of Mann Kee Awaaz pratigya. The show launched in March this year, but did not fare too well in term of ratings and went off air in a few months. However, Pooja says that season two was always supposed to be a show with a shorter timeline.
This is a new, positive trend in tellyland, she believes. “I don’t think that the television industry has changed much in recent years. Both the content and treatment of the content remain the same. However, because of the pandemic-induced budget constraints, shows are having a limited nm. It is really interesting to note that GECs and pamducers have started creating shows that run for a shorter timeline. It also gives the audiences a chance to enjoy new shows. Many makers are restricting the shows to 50 or 100 episodes, too. It’s good to notice this change,” says Pooja.
She has had a good experience shooting for Pratigya 2. She says, “The show took a leap of a decade.
were a few changes to the character such as playing mother to a kid and practicing law. I would say after essaying the character of Pratigya for such a long time, it has become a part of me. It was great to work with the same team again and I am timelly happy to receive audiences’ love and appreciation. The past year has been tough for everyone owing to the pandemic. But life’s getting back to normal and so are the festivities.”
