‘Mere Angne Mein’, a forthcoming TV family drama, was launched in the presence of actors Varun Badola, Krutika Desai, Ekta Kaul and Ananya Khare, who feel the entertainer, which delves on generation gap, will bring something unique to the tube.
Set in Allahabad, the show’s story is based on clash of ideologies. To go on air on Star Plus starting June 15, ‘Mere Angne Mein’ will showcase the difference between the authoritative and democratic as well as the generation gap between the head of the family and the youngest members.
Krutika, who essays Shanti Devi, an authoritative member of the family, is happy to have taken on the role of a strict matriarch who has set rules and regulations.
“She believes that if she controls the money that comes in the house and controls everybody, then they are going to look after her, things are going to go her way,” Krutika told IANS.
Ananya, who plays Sarla Aggarwal, Shanti Devi’s daughter, is a ‘bitter-sweet character’.
“She is a negative and juicy character and is very much loved by the mother, but sometimes she takes advantage of the love which the mother showers on her,” added Ananya.
A live preview of the show was staged here on Monday.
Ekta, who will be seen as Riya, an independent working woman, who believes in running a democratic household, said: “There are clashes but not fights and she is completely supported by her equally understanding husband.”
Seasoned actor Varun will be seen as Shanti Devi’s son Raghav Shrivastav, a senior guard at the Mughal Sarai Railway junction.
“He is a diligent son, a hard worker, who gives a lot of credit to his mother because she has worked hard on him and helped him reach where he is,” said Varun about the character that he portrays.
The actors said the viewers the show is devoid of the usual ‘saas-bahu’ melodrama.
