The moderately popular soap Saaksshi used to be aired on the Sony Entertainment channel and captivated the hearts of the small screen audiences in a very short span. The storyline of this soap revolved around the life of a middle class girl named Saakshhi who has rare dreams and aspirations, which she strives to fulfill in life. She refuses to be tied down by the bonds of the society and cherishes the dream of working as an undercover operative in an anti-terrorist squad.
The popular small screen actress Mouli Ganguly essayed the lead role of Saaksshi. According to the actress the soap has provided with tremendous opportunity to change her soft image and reflect a kind of image, which is considered different from that of a typical Indian woman. She also held the firm belief that such shows will create a huge impact on the small screen audiences on a grand scale. She was also bored by the typical older woman image that would get to portray in a family entertainer and preferred to do something completely different. Another popular small screen actor Samir Soni made an entry into the life of Saaksshi and also meted out a brilliant performance in the soap.
Through the soap Saaksshi the Aaj Tak channel was also broadly publicized. In one of the episode of the camera man of Aaj Tak was hired to make a make believe production house in order to hatch a devious plan. In another episode the lead protagonist is seen watching some breaking news on the Aaj Tak channel, which shakes her terribly. The show was not very successful but instantly clicked with the section of the audience who preferred having some kind of thrill in the shows that entertain them. Over all it was a great show, which was brought to an abrupt end contributing much to the disappointment of the audience. Such shows are in great demand and are also desired to be broadcasted again with a new look and exciting plots.
