    Anita Hassanandani believes in the power of television as a medium to reach out to viewers in small towns. "I do believe in TV as a medium. In smaller towns, people really follow you (actors). They want to know how you lead your life. I feel TV has more power than any other medium because people personally connect with your characters. They see you every day. There's a different connection they make with you," Anita said in an interview.
