A goofy yet loving ‘bahu’, her untiringly unhappy husband, a dysfunctional albeit hilarious family and the pivotal role of a ‘belan’ will now get added to your late-night entertainment-diet! Belan Waali Bahu is a comic-drama giving a peek into human impulses and tendencies. Produced by Shoonya Square, the show is directed by Deven Bhojani and helmed by Dheeraj Sarna (co-producer, writer and lead actor) and Ved Raj.
Belan Waali Bahu traces the lives of a mismatched couple, Roopa Awasthi and Amarnath, and how an ordinary item like a belan (rolling pin) changes life as they know it.
Elaborating on the concept, Manisha Sharma, Programming Head, COLORS said:
“One of the most important part in every household is the Belan, so please don’t take it lightly or for granted. Often many men don’t use a belan but love to have rotis. Adding a little humor to this concept, Belan Waali Bahu narrates a story of Amarnath who always took his wife Roopa for granted and the famous belan never existed for him. Belan is mightier than the sword it can feed you or kill you but in our show it kills and believe me it will make the viewers die laughing. We promise a first of its kind show that highlights the dynamics between a dead husband, wife and a belan.”
Playing the role of the clumsy-yet-loveable wife – the ‘Belan Waali Bahu’ – actress Krystle Dsouza said:
“I am actually a lot like my character Roopa; many know me as a sophisticated girl who is always well-prepared for everything she does, but what they don’t know and have never seen is my absolutely clumsy side. With Belan Waali Bahu, I’m extending my acting prowess beyond serious roles and trying my hand at comedy! So far it has been amazing and I am truly enjoying every day at work, which has turned out to be a very serious business! I’m fortunate to be working with comedy stalwarts like Dheeraj Sarna, Sudhir Pandey, Bhavna Balsavar and Deven Bhojwani from whom there’s so much to learn. This concept is novel and interesting, and I hope my fans and viewers appreciate my new avatar.”
It is said a girl’s life changes when she gets married but this unique tale with a twist is about the life of a girl changing when her husband dies and turns into a ghost!
