Ekta reposted a video of Sayantani commenting on Radhika’s statement. “Sad and shameful actors have no respect for their roots Kudos @sayantanighosh0609,” he wrote along with it.
Radhika in a recent interview recalled working 48-50 hour shifts during her years as a TV actor. He said that whenever he asked about the script, he was told, “Aap set pe chalo, script garm garm aan hai (you reach the set now, the script will be printed fresh)”. He said that directors used to make last minute changes and any director who was free would come for the shoot. Radh also said that whenever he had something to say about his character, he was told by the director that he would think about it when he made the film, not the TV serial.
Sayantani had reacted to the interview on Instagram and was recently asked about it during an interview with RJ Siddharth Kannan. He said, “We also have Mouni Roy, she is a dear friend of mine, and from the interviews I have heard, there is a special grace that she started her career on TV, which I found in Radhika’s clip. I don’t get it. He and a lot of other people look down on TV, you shouldn’t, I think. My problem is don’t think of TV as a stepping stone.
Several TV actors also reacted to Sayantani’s comments on Radhika. “Well said,” commented Anita Hassanandani. Kiranvir Bohra said, “Well said @sayantanighosh0609 what he said was not wrong but the way he said it was insulting….. @radhikamadan you should have been more sensitive about this.. .What do you think, filmo mein abe hain hai (What do you think? Making films comes without all that)?” Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya said, “I completely agree with your views on Sayantani and what you have done. I appreciate the manner in which this issue has been resolved.” Actor Neelu Kohli said, “After working in films, I realized that they too have a timeline and all films take ‘days’ to discuss a scene. ‘ can’t live. And just because TV actors like ‘us’ are used to it, we perform under it. All situations!! We TV actors know our job and I’m proud of it. !
Radhika’s latest release was Aasman Bhardwaj’s cut alongside Arjun Kapoor and Tabu. Sayantani is known for TV series like Ghar Ek Sapna and Naagan.
