Saas-bahu sagas depict powerful women, says Vibha Chibber
MUMBAI: Actress Vibha Chibber doesn’t agree with the criticism that saas-bahu sagas receive, and says they bring forth stories of powerful women.
“We have been witnessing various kinds of saas-bahu sagas on television and most of them are successful. There are facts shown in the show which actually exist,” Vibha said in a statement to IANS.
She added, “I feel the vision of writer, producer are very much relatable to our society. And I strongly believe that society’s mindset can be changed. Yes, sometime they do get exaggerated a bit. But the writer, producer and the director has to be given the creative liberty. I also feel the saas-bahu sagas depict a lot of powerful women on screen.”
The actress, who has worked in projects across the small as well as big screen, feels the makers can also “set some nice examples so the audiences can also witness some nice warm stories”.
“People do ask me a lot about the ‘Naagin’ show. I see no harm in that. In the West, people have started the concept of aliens and dinosaurs… It is the conviction that works. In India, ‘Naagin’ shows are in demand,” said the actress.
Vibha, who has featured in Sapna Babul Ka…Bidaai, Humsafars, Mrs. Kaushik Ki Paanch Bahuein and Piya Rangrezz, has no inhibitions.
She said, “As an artiste, I have no inhibitions. Historical, mythological and fantasy… I am comfortable with all. I also have the confidence that I can pull the character with my ability.”
The actress has just concluded work on the popular show Kasam Tere Pyar Ki. She is looking forward to a short break.
“I had a great time working in the show and now I am looking forward for a short break. Then I will resume my work. I have done quite different characters on television but I feel I am just warming up myself now. I have a long way to go,” she concluded.
