Joy Gopal, remember the dialogue? The sweet girl of the screen, Mithai, is once again returning to the drawing room. Every new series begins, and ends according to the rules of time. Every series creates a link with the audience. Some remain, some fade into memory. The Mithai series is one of the additions to that remaining list. The news of the end of the series broke the hearts of the viewers. The way Adrith Roy and Soumitrisha Kundu took the screen space with power, the effect of it was on the TRP at every moment. Day after day, if this series which is the best of the best returns to the screen once more, how will it be? No, not fantasy, this news is real. A few months after the serial was closed, Mithai was rerun again.
Have there been any reruns in the past so soon? Soumitrisha said to TV9 Bangla, “That’s what I thought too.” Some good old serials get reruns at the request of viewers, but I can’t remember if any serials have returned so soon.
What can I say, not sweet Rumi?
Undoubtedly Rumi. That is Mithai’s victory. Because everyone believed in Mithai’s performance, gave love, now she is Rumi, I hope the audience will accept Rumi Soumitrisha in the same way. If you meet on the street, say ‘Rumi is going’.
Sweet reruns, it’s good on the one hand, staying on screen…
It’s good. I believe that whatever happens to me is good. But I have no extra excitement about this, because I have nothing more to do with this character. When I got the offer, I gave my all, not just me, but our whole team. The work is done, Mithai’s character has made a place in everyone’s mind, which means that I-we are successful. Now I aim for my next project. As much as the audience has adopted Mithai, the challenge is now in front of me to adopt the next character as much.
You asked for a break, did the news that Mithai was on the air again surprise you?
That’s right, I wanted a break. Because everyone had such a sweet taste, that I felt that I had to hide from everyone’s eyes to become a new character. (Said with a smile) I am doing another film, the character is different, the audience said ‘Oi toh Mithai…’. It is as happy as it is to feel bad for the new character. Because I or we (Team Mithai) have increased the demand of the audience. So much love for Mithai, that’s the benchmark for me now, I need to work harder to establish my other characters like this. I tried that. Now I am Rumi out of Mithai. But I also heard this news like you. I wanted a break. I wanted to stay behind for a while in the small screen to big screen tour, and I got it.
So sweet now Rumi…
at all I took a lot of time to work on myself to become a Rumi. Everyone has already talked about my new character. And after a few days, the new me (Rumi) will debut in front of everyone.
Mithai on the small screen, Pradhan on the big screen, now the full-fledged Soumitrisha
Let it be. The love of the audience is very important. I have been trying day and night to honor the trust they have placed on me. Mithai reruns on the other hand, it also remains to be seen how quickly the audience demand is so high. It’s the channel’s decision, their product, whatever decision they take with this project, it’s Ananda.
By the way, there is good news for the sweet audience. The popular series is returning. This series will run from 13 November every day from 12.30 to 1.30 on the screen of Zee Bangla.
