Hindustan Surkhiyan Desk:Popular ‘ZEE TV’ show ‘Woh Apna Sa’, starring Disha Parmar & Sudeep Sahir in lead roles, introduced a reincarnation track in November last year when Ridhi Dogra was replaced by Manasi Salvi as the main antagonist ‘Nisha’. The actress went on to be loved as the new ‘Nisha’ but here’s a bad news for Manasi’s fans. Manasi has now, reportedly, put her papers down as she couldn’t play a scheming mother anymore.

According to latest reports, her character’s negativity started affecting her & that’s when she decided to quit the show.
She confirmed the news to a leading daily & said that, “I had my apprehensions about taking up the role, as I had never played a negative character before, but I thoroughly enjoyed the journey. However, after my second daughter was introduced on the show, my character started doing mean things to her, including holding a knife to her throat. I have always tried to keep my professional and personal life separate, however, the character started affecting me mentally. I want to play my characters convincingly, but I just couldn’t relate to what I was doing on the show. I can be mean to characters my age, but not to a generation younger. I didn’t want to go back home carrying the baggage of guilt. Also, since I was in my character mouthing the same dialogues for 12 hours, I must have unintentionally said something nasty to my daughter Omisha, which I realised only after she gave me a second look. Her friends know me as this cool aunty and they started saying, ‘Omisha’s mother is doing evil things, which she can’t be doing’. That’s when I decided to quit the show.”

Reportedly, ‘Woh Apna Sa’ makers were thinking of ending her character in the show & Manasi quit the show even before that.
Speaking about the same, Manasi further told TOI that, “Woh… has been on air since a year-and-a-half and one has to spruce up the drama by introducing twists at regular intervals for better ratings. The show was going through that transition and I was blessed that it happened just when I made up my mind. I conveyed my concern to the producers and they weaved my exit accordingly. It was amicable.”

The show started in January 2017 which was about the story of a young man Aditya (Sudeep Sahir) having a troubled marriage with a selfish wife Nisha(Ridhi Dogra) for the sake of his family’s happiness. Jhanvi (Disha Parmar), Aditya’s friend is willing to help him get out of the problems in his married life.
But ever since show’s makers introduced the reincarnation track, the TRPs are not very encouraging. The show has now shift to an evening slot which too affected the ratings. There are constant reports about the show going off-air but there’s no confirmation on the same. Now that Manasi is leaving the show, it’ll be interesting to see how that will affect ‘Woh Apna Sa’.
