Mandira Bedi, who rose to fame with the 1994 popular serial Shanti feels that just like films, there should be sequels for soap operas as well. Mandira also said that she would be delighted to be part of Shanti if there was a sequel to the hit soap drama.
Remember the bold, beautiful and strong minded girl who took the small screen by storm in mid 1990's? Mandira Bedi, who essayed the title role in the serial Shanti on Doordarshan set the small screen afire back in those days. Shanti was the epitome of courage, combined with good looks. She was the role model for all those modern young girls who aspired to be independent and strong willed like her. Mandira Bedi, who later did variety of roles, both on the small and big screen is of the opinion that though there are a few nice shows on TV, nothing is path breaking like Shanti. As of now, Mandira Bedi is content hosting the second season of Jo Jeeta Wohi Superstar, a music reality show.
Speaking to TOI, Mandira Bedi expressed her desire to be a part of the famous serial if anybody planned to make a sequel to Shanti. When asked what she thought about producing the serial and working in it, Mandira said that it is a tedious task and would be more interested if anybody were to produce the soap opera and ask her to star in it. However, she did mention that she would love to be involved in the creative aspect like writing the script.
Hmmm...good plan Mandira! Any takers for Shanti?
