I do relate to Akki, on various levels however his struggle is shown in the series is a lot more than what I have faced in real life and I feel extremely fortunate and grateful to be in this position, while I was looking for work.
Over the years, the choice of content on TV has evolved.

But It is unfortunate that on television there is not much commercial success to these new Content oriented stories and the theme of high voltage Vamp drama and ‘saas-bahu’ sagas follow due to the audience’s popularity. Television is changing as now an entirely new genre of comedy and reality shows have made a parallel space for themselves,” he explains.
