Madhubala actor Drashti is in the limelight for all the wrong reasons
TV actor Drashti Dhami and her choreographer Salman Yusuff Khan might have managed to impress the Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 6 judges but not their fellow contestants and fans. We had earlier reported that her co-contestants are miffed as they feel Drasti is favored by judges – Madhuri Dixit, Remo D’Souza and Karan Johar as she’s a part of the Colors family (Madhubala – Ek Ishq Ek Junoon).
The actor also came under the scanner when viewers felt that Drashti was using skin show to garner more votes. However, Drashti’s family stands by her and feels that fans often have a fixed image about soap actors who are saree-clad on small screen. Drashti’s sister-in-law Suhasni adds, “Sadly, sometimes fans fail to see the person behind their daily soap characters. They forget that she is not Madhubala, but Drashti Dhami. They only want to see her in her reel avatar. However, there is a change in thinking as actors are now coming in reality shows where their image is totally different from their on screen avatars”
Amidst all this controversy, we wonder if Drashti bags the Jhalak trophy then it would be a win-win situation, but would her loss also mean TRP loss for Madhubala or worse loss of her die hard fans?
