Actress Deblina Chatterjee who is part of the Star Plus’ longest running show Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai (Rajan Shahi’s Director’s Kut) is happy and has gained confidence in the role of Gayu with every passing day.

Deblina replaced actress Kanchi Singh in the role of Gayu.

Says Deblina, “Initially, I was skeptical about the role and its progression. However, being with the team of Rajan Shahi, that too on the longest running show, I felt good. I was hopeful of doing well in the role. And today, I am happy that my character has got lot of scope and screen space.”

The track involving Deblina is intricately poised with Gayu being pregnant before her marriage. “Well, this track sends out a message to the society. A girl who goes through such a situation of being pregnant before marriage is not accepted by society. However, the fact remains that the girl is not the one to be blamed. Also, when a good guy like Samarth (Samir Onkar) gets ready to accept the girl, the society does not approve of the man’s thoughts too. Yeh Rishta depicts a progressive story line wherein most of the family members including the youngsters Kartik (Mohsin Khan) and Naira (Shivangi Joshi) are in approval of the marriage. The tracks in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai are high on creative input and that is the biggest success factor of the show.”

Deblina is happy to be working with Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai team. “Every character seen in the show is very famous. People simply love the characters. I am lucky to be part of the show. It is amazing to be working with great co-actors and team.”

The actress is happy about the way costumes are handled for every character. “An actor gets to feel good if he / she is given great costumes and jewelry. The team makes sure their actors look their stunning best.”

Best of luck, Deblina!!
