Taanya is a beautiful, intelligent and multi-faceted computer science student in Mumbai. As she is about to pass out of college, her parents begin to talk about her marriage. That's when she tells them that she likes a boy called Tej and wants to marry him. Tej also loves her but is reluctant to accept the proposal because of a problem in his family. While he does not want to cheat her by keeping the truth from her, he is scared of losing her if he tells her about his family's problem. His friends try to convince him that every family has some problem so he need not even mention it to Taanya. Finally, when Tej and Taanya's families meet, there seems to be no problem and the proposal is mutually agreed upon. A grand wedding takes place and Taanya arrives in her sasuraal. The moment of shock come when all the rituals and ceremonies are over and the guests are all gone. Taanya realizes that Tej's household is full of men, just men. All the chachis, mamis, buas etc who attended the wedding had all gone and she was the only woman in the house. Taanya does not know how to handle this. Though in college days she was never uncomfortable among boys and she grew up with a brother, this was another feeling altogether. A life always surrounded by only men ' all strangers to begin with ' looks unimaginable. She stays put anyways but within twenty four hours she realizes that these men are like pebbles on a beach ' all different from each other and rubbing each other sour. She realizes that each one is difficult to deal with. If one wants omlette for breakfast, the other wants halwa. And as if this was not enough there is a sasurji who is kind of a hitler and a chacha sasur who is a hitler-hater. An old dada sasur is also there to make matters worse. Taanya's despairs as she realizes that she needs to play the warden of a boy's hostel where the boys ranged 60 to 12 in age groups. Taanya gives up, accuses Tej of cheating her by not telling the truth and leaves the house. She returns to her maternal home, only to find that her brother and bhabhi all packed and ready to leave the house and her mother crying. Taanya's bhabhi does not want to take the responsibility of her in-laws and hence she moves out of the house with Taanya's brother. And before a shocked Taanya can utter a word about her own problem, her mother tells her that a woman, like a needle is supposed to stitch a family together and not break it. She asks Taanya to always keep her family together and never do anything to break it. Taanya has no alternative and she returns ' determined to face the challenge.

Movie Khoobsurat Credit Diya
Khubsoorat was Rekha's biggest solo hit. She's not married in the movie ... she comes to spend time with her married sister in her sasuraal and falls in love with her sister's devar, and he with her. So there was romance, lots of light hearted stuff and towards the end, there were emotional scenes. She's not a bahu at all during the movie - they might change that for the show ... but I guess there will be romance before she gets married.
Sounds like right up Sanaya's street ... again she will get to play many shades ... and no OTT ... plus she will finally play a modern role ... with clothes to match ... that should be fun!

The film, Khoobsurat had Dina Pathak playing the strict matriarch who rules the family with a iron hand and how Rekha with her progressive thinking and charm changes the rules. However, producer Vipul D Shah is reluctant to divulge details saying it's too early. All he confirms is that Sanaya has been finalised to play the lead because she is good-looking, bubbly, charming and "fits therole completely".
