The Indian television industry has always been about family dramas and saas-bahu sagas. However, Sapnon Ki Chhalaang, produced by Nilanjana Purkayasstha and Herumb Khot’s Invictus T Mediaworks, is changing the narrative by addressing common life issues that people can relate to. Actress Megha Ray, who is part of the show, says that everyone is loving the show and is able to connect with the characters and story.
In a recent interview, Megha said that she has been receiving a great response from people who are contacting her about their experience with the show. “People are telling me that it’s something that they’ve never seen before on television. It is always so inspiring and motivating. All the characters are so relatable, the story is so well-written, and the overall execution is great. I haven’t received a single negative comment about the show yet. And I think that’s something considering the fact that we’re doing something new,” she added.
Megha believes that people are able to see themselves in the story, which is what a true creative wants at the end of the day. “That’s the reason why the show is being made; so that we can address common life issues which one talks about. People from all age groups are connecting to the show. I think that’s a great achievement,” she said.

Megha also spoke about Mumbai, the city of opportunities and the hub of the Indian film industry. She believes that Mumbai is that one place in India where you can just be yourself and still be a part of the crowd. However, she acknowledges that finding opportunities in Mumbai can be difficult due to the high competition. “Although I think, thanks to the internet, the gaps have been reduced amongst people in different places across the world. So, I think one can create an opportunity for themselves, irrespective of where they are,” she added.
Megha has been receiving a lot of compliments for her character, Radhika, who is a relatable and inspirational character. “She’s such an inspirational character to start off with. A girl who is afraid, a girl who does get nervous, a girl who has less confidence in herself when it comes to public speaking and standing up for herself when people are bullying. But what I love about Radhika is the way she’s learning to stand up for herself and to face her fears,” Megha said.
Radhika’s journey of learning to stand up for herself and face her fears is something that Megha finds inspiring. “She falls but she makes sure that she faces her failures, yet again, and she makes sure to not leave any stone unturned and succeed. That’s something I would want to keep learning from her – to never let people define who I am and to face my fears,” she said.
Sapnon Ki Chhalaang is a refreshing change from the usual family dramas on Indian television. With its relatable characters and well-written story, the show has struck a chord with audiences across all age groups. Megha Ray’s character, Radhika, is an inspiration to many, and her journey of learning to stand up for herself and face her fears is something that everyone can relate to.
