The actress becomes the first contestant to have eliminated from the show
The adventure reality show, Survivor, being hosted by Arjun, started streaming on Zee5 from September 12. The 16 contestants of the show were divided into two tribes on the first episode itself, with a leader each for both the groups. After a few twists, tough tasks and some drama, Gayathri Reddy was evicted from her tribe.
Many fans of the show anticipated that she will be the first person to get eliminated from the island. But to everyone's surprise, actress Srushti Dange was chosen as the first person to get evicted from the show. She took to Twitter to pen a heartfelt note on her association with the show and the experiences she gained from it.
In her post which began with "Darlings, I hate goodbyes", she said the show is ruthless and hard-hitting as it takes a toll on your body, mind and everything that matters to you. "With Survivor show, I have learnt a wonderful thing; to appreciate the little things we have in our life," she added, and went on to say that her eviction in the show isn't a failure, but a stepping stone to connect with you all. Though she felt bad for not being able to continue in the show, the actress said she will cherish the experiences she gained.
Srushti also added that the end of a journey means the start of another, and she hopes to entertain audience with her upcoming projects. Thanking Zee Tamil and Arjun, she reminisced what the latter said in the first episode of the show, Vandhaarai Vazhavaikkum Thamizhagam (Tamil Nadu nurtures those who come to live there). An emotional Srushti expressed her disappointment in leaving the show to Arjun, too, in its very early stage. She, along with Gayathri Reddy and Indraja Shankar, had high chances of getting ousted after they were asked to stay in the third island to perform a few tasks.
