We all know how erratic schedules are a constant when it comes to the small screen and at times, some actors even go on to succumb to it and take decisions which might otherwise be considered brave and difficult. That is what actor Afreen Alvi has done, who is best known for her role in Shubh Laabh – Aapkey Ghar Mein on Sab TV.
Alvi has quit the show as she felt exhausted and homesick as well. Talking about it, Alvi said this was the first time she shot for so long and that too on a stretch. And after a point, she wanted to take a break and she felt homesick and she wanted to meet her family.
Talking about it with ETimes TV, Alvi said, “The production house was nice and the unit was quite cooperative. I never felt that it was a professional setup, but more like home. Though I left midway, I informed them way in advance. I shot the last episode on April 23 but had informed the makers of my decision 45 days prior. I was feeling depressed because of the schedule. I felt strongly that I needed a break and should meet my family in my hometown, Delhi. I wanted to travel with my friends. Meri social life compromise ho rahi thi. There were some personal reasons as well, which I wouldn’t want to divulge.”
Alvi is planning to return to work after a month or two and will be better prepared to adapt to the challenging schedules. As known, Reema Worah will be replacing Alvi in the show.
