The show recently went on-air after a long gap of three months. And her character is seen going through an emotional turmoil now. Talking about the new twist, she said, “Mishti was leading a very simple life before an incident happened. There was a guy who was trying to molest her, and in self-defence she ended up hitting his head with a rock. So, she is in this guilt and gets panic attacks, and she’s going through PTSD. And it’s a very sensitive topic that she cannot even share it with her family.”
She further added, “Abir is trying to protect her as much as he can and is her only support in this difficult time. This is something new for me as an actor and will see Mishti in a new light. Though it’s a little challenging to portray this side of Mishti, it’s fun too. The feedback from the viewers is very overwhelming. So, we are glad that it’s working.”
The new twist also saw the Rajvansh family welcome Varun Soni, essayed by Ruslaan Mumtaz. The actress had earlier worked with him for an episode of “Laal Ishq” and mentioned that knowing each other made it easier for them to work together.
“There’s a comfort working with him because we already know each other. Ruslaan is a very sweet guy, so whenever he is on set, it’s a lot more fun. And he has adjusted quite well with the whole team. The chemistry also comes out because there is no hesitation. And he is good friends with Shaheer too. So the set environment is very chilled out,” she concluded.
“Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke” airs Monday to Saturday at 9 p.m. on Star Plus. It is produced under Shahi’s banner Director’s Kut Productions.
