New Delhi: Actress Shiny Doshi, who is playing Sarojini in TV series "Sarojini, Ek Nayi Pehel", says the show embodies the spirit and strength of every contemporary Indian woman and reflects a message that if you want to drive real change, it has to begin at home.
The show will start from July 20 on Zee TV and depicts a story of Sarojini, a strong, well-educated girl, who gets married to Somendra, played by actor Mohit Sehgal.
Somendra's family has a regressive patriarchal set-up - a household governed, dominated and practically ruled by chauvinistic father-in-law Dushyant, played by Pankaj Tripathi.
Refusing to cow down to his controlling ways like the rest of the family members, Sarojini takes the challenge head on and strives for a healthy balance of power and influence in the household, leveraging education to her advantage.
Shiny says that show "informs and educates people about the evil practices against women."
"The show has a very unique storyline. There is not only humour involved in the script but it also informs and educates people about the evil practices that are being carried out against women. It will also provide them with full entertainment dose because of the additional humour element," Shiny told IANS during the shoot of a sequence at Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) here.
Shiny, a television actress and model from Ahmedabad, made her debut with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Saraswatichandra" on Star plus. She played the role of Kusum, the parallel lead in the show.
Talking about her role in "Sarojini, Ek Nayi Pehel", the actress says the character is shown as very "practical and very ethical in her life."
"She is a kind of girl who will always stand for women empowerment. She believes in family values but she won't be doing anything forcefully or without her wish. So, she is pretty straight and also fun loving," said the 25-year-old.
Shiny also says that she can easily relate herself with Sarojini and that's the reason why she gave a nod to the show.
