In a small village in Punjab, Rano dressed as a bride waits at the Station, runs after the train which is supposed to bring back her husband, she impatiently scans through every face which alights at the station, but to no avail.

Meet Rano, she isn't a newlywed young woman but a 40 year old woman who has been married for 20 years, and waiting for her husband for the past 20 years at the very station she had last seen him. Her NRI husband after their marriage had promised to return but never came back at various stations in different villages for years, thousands of Rano's have been waiting for their NRI husbands but their wait sees no end.

Talking about the show, Prashant Bhatt, Weekday Programming Head, COLORS said, "Gurbani's story is inspired by true casesthat we came across during our year long research on the subject. As they say, the effect is nothing but an extension of the cause. In this case with Gurbani, we wanted to highlight a very important issue of abandoned NRI brides and how parents need to change their mind set, be more cautious about the choice they are making for their daughters. The show has the perfect combination of strong characters, a socially-relevant subject and a riveting storyline.

Produced by Damini K Shetty's Mystic Entertainment, Gurbani showcases the quintessential Punjabi culture, landscape and fanfare. Viewers will get a glimpse of various picturesque locations and a few iconic spots like Khasa railway station at the India and Pakistan border, Sirhind Canal near Ludhiana making it completely realistic.  Speaking on the launch of the show, Producer, Damini Shetty said, "Moving from writing on paper to reproducing work on screen, Gurbani is a dream project for me. Working with a cast that is a mixture of veterans and fresh faces, the show offers viewer's an unique insight into the Punjabi culture. Hopefully It not only brings in the authentic "Punjabi flavor with its mannerisms and dialects, but also enhances the overall experience with picturesque of locations like Khasa railway station at the India and Pakistan border and Sirhind Canal near Ludhiana. With its endearing tale,I hope Gurbani will touch a chord with the viewer for its harsh portrayal of reality while yet maintaining the elements of anticipation, drama and suspense."

Debutante Shefali Sharma who plays Gurbani's character said "Roles like these are written once in a lifetime and it's an absolute honour for me to be playing Gurbani. I have always aspired to be an actor and through this show I will put in all that I have learnt through my theatre background. It's an incredible opportunity for me to not just fulfill my dreams but also work towards protecting the dreams of many girls like me who have had to face opposition and given in to the demands of parents and society."

Veteran actor Navni Parihar who plays Rano said, "I would say had it not been for the role of Rano I might not have decided to return to television. This show is not just another name added to the many shows that get launched but a step forward towards bring in more awareness and making a difference to some lives. I believe that one has to be the change that you want to see, I am hoping through my character Rano, I can save many Ranos in the future."

The show brings together an authentic cast that spells Punjabi flavour like veteran actors Navni Parihar (Rano), Sooraj Thapar(Nirvail Mama)and Rita Bhaduri(Dadi) who will add their experience and flair to the show. Adding a dose of freshness to the cast are actors Shefali Sharma(Gurbani), Neha Bagga(Rajji), Adhvik Mahajan (Sohum),Ekkta Singh (Desho)amongst others.

Uniqueness my foot. This is an exact copy of Geet, right?
Hmph, looks like Gett was such a good show that now people have to copy the concept to garantee sucess. And this is coming from a person who has not eatched anything related to Geet, but think that Dhrashti and Gurmeet must have stunning on-screen chemistry.
