The hit serial ‘Shakti: Astitva Ke Ehsas Ki’ is going through a really interesting plot these days. Since the beginning, the daily soap has been woven around the idea of a fragile girl Soumya, played by Rubina Dialik, who finds it difficult to interact with people.

It was evident to fans that the makers were hiding something huge about Soumya. And now the veil has been dropped off from the secret. The episode which aired yesterday revealed that Soumya was a transgender.

This revelation has helped join the dots of the show’s story. Now all the viewers know why Soumya’s mother Nimmi kept her tied to herself, did not let her step out to take education and tried saving her from a woman hidden behind a veil.

Further, this also explains why Nimmi wants that Soumya doesn’t consummate her marriage with Harman (played by Vivian Dsena).

Now, the producers are touting this plot as brave on grounds that no other serial has touched the sensitive topic of transgender, so far.

However, on such a big twist of the show the viewers’ feedback was mixed. While some feel that it is a brave step to make a serial around this concept, many on social media called it stupid. The ones who were not impressed by this twist said that it is almost impossible for Soumya not to know about her being a transgender.
