Even though there there is a surge of reality, fictional, mystical and mythological shows on the small screen in India, Asha, who has been a part of TV shows for almost five years, feels there's no dip in the presence of shows on kitchen politics.
"I don't think it is the end of saas-bahu sagas. Saas-bahu sagas will be running till the time we have our mothers, grandmothers and aunties sitting and watching them. That is what they like. So, I don't think it will ever end," Asha told IANS.
The actress feels that even though the younger generation prefers to surf on the internet and watch shows on on-demand video streaming services, the women of the Indian household is a major audience for the TV and they will continue to watch such shows.
"They (women) are the major audience for television...The youngsters these days are very hooked onto the internet. But till the time our mothers, grandmothers are watching TV saas-bahu saga will never end," added the actress, who has done popular soaps like 'Ek Mutthi Aasmaan' and 'Bade Acche Lagte Hain'.
Asha was also part of television show 'Kuch Toh Hai Tere Mere Darmiyaan', which starred Gautam Gupta and Ali Goni in lead roles.
