Star Plus’s soon to air Lakhon Mein Ek will see the lead character of its own show Pratigya as its anchor. Pooja Gor, who plays the title character Pratigya, is excited about her anchoring debut, which will replace Aamir Khan’s Satyamev Jayate.
Pooja says, Satyamev Jayate urged people to do something for society. People are looking forward to something along the same lines and we hope to match their expectations. I will play the sutradhar (narrator) and introduce inspiring stories shown in a dramatised format for our viewers. This opportunity will take the character, Pratigya, beyond the show, as she supports justice and is known for standing up for herself and society. The show has real-life stories about people who’ve made a difference in others’ lives.”
Asked if she has issues hosting the show under a character name and not as herself, Pooja says, “Had it been a dance or singing reality show, then I would have insisted that I, Pooja Gor, host it and not my character, Pratigya. But here the content needed an anchor that people could connect with and Pratigya has already made a mark. So I had no issues.”
