It's time to give that notion a re-think! Waking viewers up to the fact that being a housewife is not just a respectable choice but a challenging job that calls for resourcefulness, creativity and tact is Zee TV's latest launched show "Housewife Hai..Sab Jaanti Hai"

And do you think that being a Housewife is easy?
In today's society there is an evident competition to be economically sound and independent. The only one criterion for being successful and to earn respect within your family is to earn.
Sona and Kanhaiyya enters the family after marriage and Suhnaina is happy that Sona will learn Rs 40000 per month and give it to her. Dadi's shadow saves Sona and she pretends to have headache on her wedding night. Next day Sona sees that everyone asks for even small work to neelam and that housewives are not treated well in house. From Sona's office her incentive cheque of Rs. 1,20,000 comes and Sona knows that her saas is greedy but still give her the cheque. The best shagun including money comes from Sona's house but Suhnaina thinks to save everything and exchanges everything with inexpensive items. Everyone was shock and taunt Sona for the inexpensive gifts but Kanhaiyya supports her. Sona comes to know that Suhnaina exchanged gifts but still she says sorry if shagun is not worth. To take care and help Neelam, Sona decides to resign from her office and Suhnaina asks Kanhaiyya to talk to Sona. Sona makes Kanhaiyya understand and he supports Sona. To teach Sona a lesson, Suhnaina in front of her and everyone from family sells all the shagun item to make Sona feel bad but Sona doesn't. And also Suhnaina says that from today not Neelam but Sona will be doing all household work till she does not make her mind set to leave for office and no one will help Sona. Next Suhnaina asks Sona to prepare food for around 70 people for bahu boj knowing it well that there was no gas cylinder in house and if Sona fails then she has to leave for office. Since it was black-marketing of gas cylinders in whole allahabad, it was difficult to manage a cylinder. Even Kanhaiyya tries everything but he fails. Sona asks her office person about the black-marketing and she gets to know of a place...Suhnaina asks darshana's husband durgesh to keep into account that no cylinder comes inside the house and Suhnaina gives commission to durgesh for it. Sona sends a letter about it to DIG and sends a msg to every housewife of locality to come to that place to get free cylinders, Sona cuts all vegetables but is disturbed for not having cylinder...Sona also informs Kanhaiyya and he reaches the spot and arrests the black marketer and every lady gets a cylinder. Sona comes from behind to Kanhaiyya and both are happy and the whole event is telecasted on tv...with gas cylinder Sona prepares the food well and everyone is impressed. Suhnaina's plan fails.
Next Suhnaina does not let Sona's dadi to talk to her making excuses of Sona busy in work. Dadi comes to Suhnaina to say to her she has made her grand daughter Sona do the work of house like maid earning 500 to 1000 dollars. Suhnaina mind got idea and she asks Kanhaiyya to bring a maid. Suhnaina now wanted to explain Sona that housewives are no less than maids of house and Sona knows her sasuma's intentions and wants to prove her wrong. A maid laxmi is set to do the work in house and to get paid Rs 5000 per month...laxmi made poor half cooked food, washed clothes badly in colour on every cloth, badly cleaned house and makes excuse everytime to leave for home fast. Laxmi had worked for one day only till now. Neelam and Sona together prepared the lunch again made by laxmi by adding ingredients to it. Hungry family because of laxmi's poor food is served by sona's delicious kheer. Sona also removes clothes stains and Suhnaina knowing all this is still not happy...laxmi damages everyday while washing dishes and chiku makes a list of every damage...the plates, glasses, washing powder and tells the same to chachaji. Chachaji asks chiku the kid to keep an eye on laxmi and make a list of every damage. Sona thinks that she can join office anytime but firstly she has to well settle everything in house.

Pictures make our breath sip a beat, as we just caught them at the right time at the right moment. We can never have them those time back, we are only left with memories and those memories live on forever.
So here is a few scene till date on the show.

We get to know people more by asking little questions
Like Inspector Kahnaiyya, He doesn't know anything until he questioned someone and they answered his question, then he would know what is what, and what is not.
Here are some interviews with Suhasi & Anriuddh and other Housewife Hai cast.
Suhasi Dhami have recently had an interview with IANS, to which she agrees on being a homemaker is a challenging job. To which she also admits she is not a Housewife and also says "we often take housewives for granted, but the fact is that they are smart in their own way. It is very difficult to take care of small and pitty issues. Through our show, we want to send out a message that housewives shouldn't be taken for granted. It is a light-hearted show, which will also put light on various social issues".
Suhasi also added that the television industry have make her learn her to have patience."This industry has taught me to be patient. And whatever I have done, I have always given my best in it. Even if it is a small role, you should give your 100 percent and leave the rest to others: she said.
"Households that run like well-oiled machinery will come to a standstill and families will fall apart if these hardworking women stop doing the job they do! Yet, they are constantly made to feel like they do not make a significant contribution," she said.
As part of the wedding sequence in Housewife Hai, Dhami wore a 52 kg lehnga that is heavier than herself, she had 4 attendants to help her out during shooting. Here is what she had to say about wearing such an elaborate ghagra who had to put extra effort to retain her balance during hershooting, "It was quite a challenge to walk or even stand still in a costume as heavy as that lehnga. As a bride, there's so much more to focus on in terms of emotions ' one has to smile coyly, giggle, be respectful and touch the feet of elders. I found it very difficult to balance myself. But I'm happy with the end result."
Suhasi Dhami recently had an interview on which she was quizzed about her show Housewife Hai, and this is what she had to say.
How different is your character in 'Housewife Hai ' Sab Jaanti Hai' from Abha?
Playing the feisty and spunky Sona will be quite a departure for the actress from her previous portrayal of the Rajshri-style idealistic beti. Sona is a journalist who consciously decides to leave her job and be a housewife on getting married. The show wakes viewers up to the fact that being a housewife is not just a respectable choice but a challenging job that calls for resourcefulness, creativity and tact. In fact, the show captures how housewives can teach even the world's biggest CEOs the art of multi-tasking! The show will explore how she applies her intelligence to being a smart housewife, plays her cards well and sets an otherwise dysfunctional family back on track!
Does the show emphasise the importance of a housewife?
Yes, it does. Tiffin for the hubby. Homework with the kids. Picking and dropping them off at school. Scolding the dhobi for late deliveries. Papa' s High BP pills on time. Bargaining with the grocer. Supervising the bai's work. Handling the Bank accounts. Maa ji's special diabetes food. She pulls off all this and more in a day'yet you think it's only you who deal with a 'to-do' list, deadlines and pressure because you go to office and she sits at home! Her tasks probably outnumber yours. But being a housewife is not a job, just because she doesn't bring home a paycheck? 'Housewife Hai ' Sab Jaanti Hai' proves once and for all that there's nothing easy about being a housewife, that it is perhaps more challenging than most jobs people do.
What made you accept the show?
The very premise of the show excites me as I feel strongly about the subject. It's sad how a lot of people say ' Oh, she doesn't do anything, she's a housewife! I find that statement ridiculous because people fail to realize the mountains most housewives move in the course of an average day. Households that run like well-oiled machinery will come to a standstill and families will fall apart if these hardworking women stop doing the job they do. Yet, they are constantly made to feel like they do not make a significant contribution. I am extremely glad to be a part of a show that highlights the dignity that exists in being a housewife and gives them their due respect.
Any last words?
Yes. I would like to thank Zee TV and the Rajshris for giving me name and fame ' and its been a pleasure working with producer Gulshan Sachdeva on Housewife.
Anriuddh Dave plays a cop, where he adapt Salman Khan Dabangg 2010 get up. The actor have drawn inspiration from Chulbul Pandey for a bindass, street smart and good natured cop. Right from the body hugging clothes to the aviators hanging from his belt. Anriuddh said "No one beat Salman Khan when it comes to style and swagger. And for this role Chulbul Pandey has been a reference point, while he is inimitable, I have tried to add my own personal touch to the role".
Preeti Puri Choudary who earlier worked in Zee's shows Somnath Ki' Somnath Ki' and Mamta also in Naagin is now back with Zee in Housewife, here is what Preeti had to say about her character.
'Yes, im doing Zee's new show. I am playing the 2nd daughter-in-law of the family and my character's name is Renu. Besides being modern and stylish, Renu is also a working woman who earns a handsome salary. She believes in the rat race of the world and strives to get what she wants. But there are times when she fails to fulfil her desires. All in its a fun loving character'.
Okay, here are some brief facts about this show and about the stars. As there is so much that no one probably didn't know, but now we will.
Like Sona & the Chaturvedi Family, they are her family but yet there is so much that she doesn't know.

There are certain things that we love so much and when we add a little texture to bit, a little bit of colours, a little bit of brightness, and then merge them together they comes out so wonderful, so beautiful, which make us love them all over again. That's how creations are like, we love the show, we add text to a few images, we add more colours, we brighten it and then merge a few image together and our end result is breath taking.
That's how creations are like, So here are some creations on the show.

Like Suhnaina & Sona, both with different views. Suhnaina believes being a working wife is better that a housewife, while Sona believe being is housewife is better that a working wife.
However, the role of Kanhaiyya seem quite confusing, as he think his mom is always right, Sona just give him a few sweet words and he thinks she is also right... I totally love that, but it that will surely be a problem on the show progresses. One thing that really like with Aniruddh as Kanhaiyya is the way portray his dabbang look, he just got it so right.. Well, i will say no faults
Himani Shivpuri as Suhnaina is just a wonderful choice, As Hamani is a very talented actress and her role as a greedy saas. She just works her way well that role.
On whole,Suhasi looks as beautiful and stunning as she always did especially in YMGGK, portraying double role (Ahba, Albeli) was a challenge and now here a housewife Sona.
I can't say much about Aniruddh as i have never seen him, however i do look forward to see him in Housewife.
Together, I do hope these two chemistry make Magic.
I do like the idea of this show, as it does come with a message, We must not underestimate a women who is at home day and night, 24*7. As she may be worthed more than anything else.
What if one day she is not at home?
Will it still be a home?
No it will just be a House, as it takes a special person to make a house a home, and only a housewife can do that.
And a salute to all those woman who manage both the home and there work. How the hell do you guys do it???
I look at this show and I wanted to watch a few more episodes before I give a review of what I think this show really is. For me, it's going at its own pace and for a starter to the zee channel; the show has given us some cute romantic scenes. Overall it's a great show and I know it has a great potential to go very far and all characters have their part and I'm so happy to see everyone is being used in this show and not just the leads. I hope they keep bring in this art because it helps the story a lot. Even if it's for a few seconds, I hope they continue to show each character.
About the character, overall their acting seems mature and very outstanding. Starting with Sunanina, she is a great person but I'm gradually started hating the character being portrayed. Anyways, this is what helps build the story so I'm looking forward to see how Sona changes this MIL of hers. Devarji, seems quite understandable and he seems to fir good with Sona and Neelam. Neelam I must say is a great but I wish Neelam starts to show some sort of control to them but I guess this will only change until Sona becomes a housewife. Bindiya, Darshana and Renu ( evil people) **laughs** there character are great and I can see much use of them in this show and their acting is above rated, considering the fact that they are the ones who will be giving Sona some hard times. I forgot the male's names, but the sons look fit and good for their role. Neelam husband, he is great and portrays some good ethics. Coming to the children, Chicku is a great, he will be one of those children who help a lot and his character is well played by that individual. He adds some humour and some relief of tension to this show. I'm glad to see such a character. The two other girls sure have some potential and their character seems important in coming tracks. One is already reading a love letter (I think). Nice to see the contrast amongst the children.
Coming to the lead characters ' Suhasi has always been adorable in what she do. She is fine is portraying Sona but she seems a bit suffocated in her character. I hope to see her come out. But as a start, she ash been good and the character blends well with others. Kahanaiyya does a wonderful role and his little foolishness and flirts bring humour and it's indeed a light to the show. Both leads make this show a wonderful aspect and I hope it continue to shine and glitter and gain great importance.
In concluding, it is one of the best shows I would say. On a scale of 100 I would rate, at this point in time, of 85 with an outstanding batch of characters binding the family and contrasting each other, I will be looking forward to see how can a family of so many characters with different personalities and roles blend together to catch the team of Housewife Hai, Sab Jaanti Hai. I surely don't missed an episode now viewed in my country, and when I do get time I come to the forum and try to be active. So HHSJH continue to rock and keep moving. Love to see what this show has in store. Best of luck!

Aaj Ki Housewife Hai.. Sab Jaanti may be just another indian serial on ZeeTv, But the show does come with a message. Just become a woman chose to stay in the house and do everything, we should underestimate her, we should just treat her a servant. Just become she doesn't get a salary at the end of the month that doesn't mean she isn't worth. Just become chose to do all the work like maid that doesn't make her one. Afterall, if she wasn't there to do all those little things that we just fail to see, would everything go smooth. If she wasn't there would a house still be home. What would we have done without the one who handle everything in a house. Our House would have never ever become a Home without her, who would have never got food, our clothes would have never been wash, our rooms would have never been pack, when we are sick we would have to help self. Without her, Life get impossible.
And yet there are woman who manage both, You guys are just mind blowing. And with this show, many final will realise the worth of a woman who keeps to house together.
