Shivani Tomar

Mumbai, June 23, 2017 (Online News India): Actress Shivani Tomar, who plays the lead role in upcoming television show Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon, feels that a majority of Indian audience wants to see women who are a little dominated by men.

When asked about the stereotypical representation of women on Indian television, Shivani said, "I think people like to see a 'bechari ladki' (damsel in distress) on the screen. That is why we get to see either superwomen, who are highly successful in their professional and family life, or women who counting on gaining sympathy from everyone because of their emotional struggle."

Shivani will be seen playing the role of Chandni Narayan Vashisht,a girl who is well versed in Sanskrit, knows all the rituals and is heavily influenced by the Holy Gita. As an individual, she has a strong personality, though she is a so-called 'sanskari' girl. At the same time, she has a journey where she struggles at times.

The actress has already begun shooting for the show.
