Sourabh likewise misses out on such shows.
"I would certainly be just one of the happiest people if a 'Remix' reboot takes place and I would enjoy to be a part of it. I believe shows like 'Remix' as well as others based on friendship, colleges and colleges are more geared to the city audience.
"Our TRPs as well as numbers have the tendency to come from throughout India including Tier 2 and also Rate 3 cities. While our urban audience can connect to 'Remix', our country audience doesn't.

" Yeh Un Dinon Ki Baat Hai" is another program which narrates the teenage romance between Naina as well as Sameer yet it is incomplete without Sameer's close friends Munna and Pandit.

It is very important to reveal this side also in Indian public as opposed to simply revealing the opposite side," she said.
She concurred that a whole show is not made on relationship so much.
"Other things are much more prominent and also take precedence. I aren't sure why that is, due to the fact that I believe our culture from the moment we were in school, college to workplace, relationship has been deeply rooted in our culture.
"Everyone is cozy per various other and also wait their close friend much more than western society. In western culture, friendship is not as cozy as well as deep as in India as friends here are more like a family. I am glad that 'The Trip' is just one of minority shows that highlight relationship as it's a pure concept."
