, the makers of Uttaran
, the very successful show on COLORS are now coming up with a new show on NDTV Imagine, titled Kashi
Kashi is the story of a little girl aged about five years who longs to study and work hard, but faces a hurdle in doing so, as she belongs to the lower caste. The story is set in the backdrop of Bihar. Sai Deodhar
who has been missing from television for the past couple of years makes a comeback with this show. The actress had been busy with a film, and was last seen on TV in Ek Ladki Anjaani Si
with her husband Shakti Anand
According to our source, "Sai Deodhar
will play the mother of the five year old girl Kashi. She plays a sweet and demure mother who supports her child in all aspects. Even though she is bound by the laws of the society, she has her own mind and can speak out when needed".
Confirming the news, Sai Deodhar
told Telly Buzz, "Yes, I was very sceptical when I took this role. The character I am playing requires me to have the typical Bihari dialect, which I have never played before. It feels great to be back on television. However, I can't divulge more information on the show".
The unit had their first outdoor shoot at Wahi, and have returned recently. The promo of the show is on air, and the show is expected to launch in March, after the culmination of Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jaayega.
