Diya Aur Bati Hum threatens us: Avinesh Rekhi

‘Chhal Sheh Aur Maat’ has seen an increase in TRPs this week, scoring a total of 1.6 points. This goes to show that the serial is slowly picking up in spite of the IPL fever and being relatively new on TV.

The plot has already started to thicken with the equation between Kabir and Aditi aka Neha changing. On last night’s episode, when Dushyant Singh aka Sooraj Thapar decides to shoot Aditi, Kabir Jaiswal steps in and takes the bullet for her. Is the chemistry between the two increasing?

Asked if audiences could expect a romance brewing between the two, Avinesh Rekhi (Kabir) replied” I don’t know if I will fall in love with Aditi’s character because that’s a suspense for me too. But I am concerned about her and have my sympathies because Rishi is using her and me to extract money”. Avinesh was also all praises for his co-star Hunar Hali (Aditi/Neha) and Aishwarya Narkar (Dija). “Hunar is very nice and extremely co-coopeartive. She’s more experienced than me so she gives me a lot of tips. Dija/Aishwarya is a senior actor and I learnt a lot from her. She’s also supportive and has encouraged me.”

When asked about which show threatened ‘Chhal Sheh Aur Maat’ the most, he instantly replied “Diya Aur Baati Hum’ and ‘Pavitra Rishta’ are our biggest competition because they are also aired on the 9pm slot”. But Hunar Hali seemed very optimistic when asked about what she thought about the show’s TRP ratings. “Gradually we will beat ‘Diya Aur Baati Hum’ as our show has just started”.

Here’s wishing the team luck! After all, slowly and steady wins the race.
