Kishwer Merchant rose to fame with Bigg Boss season 9. She was recently seen in Dipika Kakar and Karan V Grover’s Kahaan Hum Kahaan Tum as Nishi. She replaced Tanaaz Irani in the show but was upset with the way how the show was wrapped up.
Talking about the same with IWMBuzz, “We all were very shocked for the end came despite having higher numbers than many other shows on the channel. But yes, I guess our 1 .7 – 1.9 average was always below than what the channel expected from a super prime time property. They need a TRP of above 2 to sustain in the long run. Ironically had the channel delayed pulling the plug; we might have still been on the air for its replacement show Anupama is now on hold due to the Coronavirus lockdown. The show would have surely lasted a month or two more.”
She further added, “Yes, but then if ratings don’t come, what else do you expect? Most Star Plus shows are of the same variety, and even Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai is no different. We did start differently. I remember when I first entered (replacing Tanaaz Irani), producer Sandeep Sicand told me that Nishi would be a very positive character. But then towards the end, her graph turned entirely black. But overall, it was a fun journey. Karan V Grover is an excellent actor.”
Now, that Hum Kahaan Tum Kahaan is over, Kishwer wants to explore the digital world. Also because of the ongoing web craze, who wouldn’t want to NO to a good role. Talking about the same with IWMBuzz, Kishwer revealed that she would love to star in a lesbian love story and said, “I am looking to collaborate with big talented makers who will treat the subject aesthetically. Such guys don’t even need to go too bold.”
