Hansika says Love Shaadi Drama is her way of sharing her D-Day with fans; addresses negativity that surrounded it
Hansika Motwani and Sohael Kathuriya
After 20 years in the public eye, Hansika Motwani has accepted that flashbulbs will always follow her. So, instead of fighting them, the actor is embracing them. Her upcoming reality show, Love Shaadi Drama, which documents her wedding to beau Sohael Kathuriya, is an extension of the idea. “My fans and well-wishers have been a part of my life for the past 20 years. So, when Disney+Hotstar approached me with the idea, I thought it was perfect. I wanted [my fans] to experience my wedding,” she says.
The reality show will give admirers an inside view into her dreamy December 2022 shaadi. For Motwani, sharing her most private moments also stems from her desire to take charge of the story. Her nuptials were preceded by negativity as a section of the audience criticised her for marrying her best friend’s former husband. “There were so many opinions, and people feeding in to fake news. If the fans want to know me, what’s better than me speaking about the truth of my life? I am not doing anything wrong. I am marrying someone I love.”

On the work front, the actor has seven projects in Tamil and Telugu, including My Name Is Shruthi, geared up for release. Motwani is happy to see south films getting their due. “It’s only the language that changes. At the end of the day, all we are doing is entertain. Now that the lines are getting blurred, it’s great. We are blessed that our reach has increased.”
