For artists aiming to make an emotional effect, inspiration is crucial. The iconic role of Somu, played by renowned actor Kamal Haasan in the film 'Sadma', served as inspiration for Aastha Sharma's portrayal of the character in COLORS' ‘Neerja... Ek Nayi Pehchaan.’ With a moving story centered on Neerja, who strives to overcome the difficulties of belonging to Sonagachi and live a life of dignity, the social drama has captured viewers' attention. The plot reaches a turning point when Neerja (Aastha Sharma), fearing that she will have to go back to Sonagachi, eventually succeeds in reviving Abeer's (Rajveer Singh) memories. Unfortunately, Neerja is doomed since Abeer has forgotten the connection they had, leaving her to lament the loss of their love.
She chases him and flashes the necklace he gave her in an effort to remind Abeer of her. This emotionally charged moment, which was inspired by Kamal Haasan's cult classic ‘Sadma,’ is explained by actor Aastha Sharma. She says it's an honour for her to recreate the classic's climactic scene, which speaks volumes about unrequited love.
Sharing her thoughts about her homage to Kamal Haasan, Aastha Sharma says, “I feel fulfilled and proud to have my portrayal of Neerja come a long way and I thank the viewers for showering so much love on the show. I’m honoured that through this show I got to pay tribute to Kamal Haasan’s heart-wrenching scene in Sadma. Who hasn’t cried copious tears as Kamal Haasan tries to revive Sridevi’s memory in the film? The narrative of our show has arrived at an interesting crossroads where all the love Abeer once had for Neerja seems lost. After coming this far and leaving her life in Sonagachi behind, she fears she will be compelled to go back to the ill-famed place. With all these developments in the story, I can’t wait for the audience to find out what happens next.”
Viewers will see the difficulties Abeer and Neerja experience in the next plot as they deal with the fallout from a horrific event. Despite regaining his memories, Abeer is still unaware of what has happened during the previous two years. Due to Abeer's actions, Neerja was terribly hurt and now confronts difficulties in the Bagchi family. Will she decide to put up with these difficult circumstances or quit the Bagchi family? This is the pressing question. Only time has the solution.
The story will undoubtedly extensively examine relationship dynamics and the wide-ranging effects of secrets, which promises to provide more drama and intrigue in the future.
