MUMBAI: Zee TV is strengthening its weekday primetime with a new fiction. The channel is replacing Karol Bagh with a new show Dil Se Diya…Vachan, starting 25 October at 7 pm.
Vachan unfolds the story of Kalyani – A gynecologist by profession, an ideal mother and an ideal wife who leads a life dedicated to the service of humanity in Pune.
The plot dwells on the basic premise of a beautiful bond shared between the Kalyani and her daughter-in-law (Nandini), rather than focusing on “melodrama, which has been done to death in Hindi GECs,” the channel claims in a release. “It’s a far cry from kitchen politics and in-laws afflicting torture,” it said.
Actor - producer, Neena Gupta will essay the role of Kalyani and Vandana Joshi from Zee TV’s Dance India Dance Season 2 will portray the role of Nandini. The cast also includes actor Ayub Khan.
Zeel COO and Zee TV business head Nitin Vaidya says, “We are hoping to set a new benchmark as Dil Se Diya…Vachan is another endearing concept from Zee. We will see the Saas accepting the Bahu as her daughter and standing by her through thick and thin. Dil Se Diya…Vachan is a drama based on a true story. It is a story about two mature women and the indisputable trust that binds them together.”
The show is produced by Film Farm India, an enterprise by Kalyan Guha and Harsh Dave.
