Colors’ popular show Shakti… Astitva Ke Ehsaas Kii has been instrumental in breaking stereotypes by beautifully showcasing the life of a transgender (Kinnar) through Saumya’s story. The show has touched upon many aspects, including societal acceptance, inclusivity, biases and others, which Saumya has fought against. Rubina Dilaik, winner of Bigg Boss 14, has beautifully portrayed the character of Saumya and breathed life into it. The actress is now set to return to the show as it takes a new turn. Donning a more powerful avatar, Saumya will set out on a new journey by being more confident of her identity and place in the society.
Says Rubina, “Shakti…Astitva Ke Ehsaas Kii has been one of the path-breaking shows on television. It has been a fantastic journey and I have been thrilled by the love and appreciation the viewers showered on it. After a hiatus, I am very excited to be back on the show as Saumya, with a renewed spirit, new power, and determination. It feels like a homecoming and I am looking forward to reuniting with the cast.”
