Gurdeep Kohli on the latest television content: Makers are only chasing behind the TRP's

Gurdeep Kohli, who rose to fame with her role of Dr Juhi in Sanjeevani, is currently grabbing eyeballs for her different role in Kehne Ko Humsafar Hai. The AltBalaji's web series has returned for its third season and is getting a lot of praise. However, the actress expressed her concern about the latest television content which is degrading. She said, "Writers come up with ideas but people sitting at the head of TV channels make them lose their vision as they want to churn out those TRPs. People are a little confused on television. If a formula works well, they try to use the same for all shows. If Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai did well, the same kind of romance will not work for something like, say Sanjeevani. It was a different genre."

 
She further added, "One formula cannot be used for another. They do not let writers to focus on topics. I think this is why television content suffers. There are no options on television for anybody now, you have to succumb to channels. My producer does not want to do TV. Any intelligent producer would not want to work for television these days."
 
While she got a lot of fame with Sanjeevani, do people still think of her as the same? She said, "In the second season, all the old fanbase resurfaced. I would say not just Sanjeevani 2 but the first one was an iconic show and my character was unforgettable. It has become very popular and whatever I am today, is because of that show (Sanjeevani). To find such an author-backed role as my debut, I think I was so lucky. I am very happy when people call me Dr Juhi. It is a character that has been very close to my heart.”
