With their three kids, Kartik & Adwait and Suhana, Dixit’s work very hard compromising on almost all their needs & luxuries only with an aim to set a bright and secure future for their kids. With their only wish to see their children well established and happy for the rest of their life, both Parikshit & Gayatri are a satisfied couple, until life shows up its darker shades and begin to trample their dreams of a fulfilled family life.

Dedicated to all the parents who have overcome barriers of life to create a promising & bright future for their children. Santaan will narrate real life story of every other household of this generation & society, first time ever on television.

Set in the backdrop of ‘Kanpur’ the show will depict the lifestyle & generation gap, conflicting values & morals between parents and their children. With its emotive portrayal of storyline, the show will find its immediate relevance in the present day society, where each character will be easily identifiable & relatable.

Capturing the simple, real and immense internal strength of each character as they juggle with their hopes & aspirations and their share of troubles too. The show will indeed be a remarkable play of real life happenings onto the reel life.

So, will Parikshit and Gayatri be able to cope up with the lifestyle of ‘Generation next’?? Will the difference of opinions lead to a rift between a father-son; mother-daughter relation??

Stay tuned to find it all on- SANTAAN, starting October 22nd, Mon-Thurs, 7.30 p.m. only on STAR PLUS!
