The actress further said, “See, my first show, Kahani Ghar Ghar Kii, was on air for eight years. For eight years, people had only seen me like that. So, it was a mountain of an image to break. For the next following two years, whatever I got was either similar to that, or was an extension of that. So, there was nothing new for me to do that.”

She added, “And that is why the sabbatical. I thought, yeh toh kar hi chuke hai. And, abhi toh aaram se baitho. And honestly, I thought, that’s it. You know, I thought, it’s going to be this one show, and that’s it. And, I was quite happy about it also.

Sakshi Tanwar continued, “Because, I had never imagined that kind of success and all that, that came along with the show. I hadn’t imagined. I had very simple dreams for my self. So, for me, that in itself was a huge thing. So for me, even if it had ended there, I would not have complained.

Sakshi mentioned she is in a very happy space. She said she would credit Ekta Kapoor for bringing her back to TV with the show Bade Acche Lagte Hain. The actress added, “Because, that completely changed the image I had with my previous show. And after that, it became better.”
