Bodhi Tree Production’s Mautik Tulip talks about the changes in Nisha Aur Uske Cousins, the fans’ responses, the real hero of the show and more
I’ve been waiting to catch up with the producer of Nisha Aur Uske Cousins to clear some very essential doubts and issues I’ve had with the daily soap, for the longest time. I just got the opportunity to meet the man himself and it was definitely interesting to hear the other side of the story. For days I’ve been getting tweets from fans of the show to find out why the makers made so many changes in the story, so here’s your answer to some of the queries. Read excerpts of the interview...
Did Taher Shabbir really leave the show at one point?
Taher never left the show, it was just a rumour that we brought in Mishkat because their chemistry didn’t work. . We just wanted to plan an interesting love triangle between two brothers and the heroine.
In Nisha Aur Uske Cousins, don’t you think that the importance of the siblings is diminishing?
No, see you always have stories of the cousins going on every now and then. If you see now, we are focussing on Dolly and her marital issues right now. Their importance will never diminish. Anything that Nisha does is always going to have an impact on the cousins and they are going to get involved to help her. The DNA and grail of the show is not going to change. Obviously it is now more broadened because now we also have two lovers in the mix.
Don't you think it has become more of just a love story?
That's the general progression that Nisha would go through in her life. We are basically capturing the journey of a girl who is coming of age. So it’s natural for her to fall in love and get married. Obviously these are phases she would go through which is what we showing now. There are two men in her life at very different junctures and she's torn between the two people. And that's what the story is about.
What kind of responses are you getting from fans about all the changes in Nisha’s life?
It is very interesting because there is a very exciting polarisation. Some people like Kabir some people like Viraj and it's nice to play on that.
So what is the final decision going to be - Viraj or Kabir?
Well that's the mystery and for that you have to watch the show.
What about rumours of the show going off air?
These rumours are not true. The show is at a very interesting juncture and everyone is wondering what is going to happen next in Nisha's life. Both men are interesting in their own ways and both are important to the story.
But who is finally going to be the hero?
Nisha is the main hero in the show. Right now we are playing the triangle in a very interesting way, both the characters are very important. Honestly, let the suspense remain.
