Tejaswi Prakash Wayangankar is an Indian television actress. She rose the popularity from the most popular show titled “Swaragini—Jodein Rishton Ke Sur”, where she played the role of ‘Ragini Lakshya Maheshwari’. The show was written by Rashmi Sharma and directed by Ravi Raj. Currently, she is playing the role of Diya on the show “Pehredaar Piya Ki.”
“Pehredaar Piya Ki” is a show of a girl aged 18 married to a nine-year-old boy and having her honeymoon. This may sound cringe-worthy and regressive to many, but actress Tejaswi does not see anything wrong with the storyline of her show. She says it’s progressive content.
About her show, Tejaswani says that “I think it’s really progressive. But again, a lot of people believe in judging a book by its cover… They love being judgmental and people have nothing better to do than judging somebody else’s work. Then okay, what can I do?” Moreover, she added, “I feel it’s just a story and fiction. It’s just a story that we are telling people. So how can you judge any story? You like it okay, you don’t like it, so, you don’t like it. We are not professors, we are not trying to teach you anything.”
She even compared the show with the most popular American fantasy drama “Game of Thrones”, which was created by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. Tejaswi said, “It also happened in ‘Game Of Thrones’… People love ‘Game Of Thrones’ and if the same thing happens in ‘Pehredaar Piya Ki’, then it’s an issue.” But is all the criticism courted by the show affecting the actress? She said, “No, I’m an actor. I just get my script, go on the set and I perform. Honestly, I’m not on a lot of social sites to be aware of any such comments… I am only active on Instagram. Nobody calls and says anything to me. It’s probably the creatives… They should talk to the creatives about the criticism.”
