The title, which literally means women's rights, is about a female protagonist who lives in a hostel and gets involved in the people who come to reside in the same premises. The female lead goes on to carve out a niche for herself in politics and fights for women's rights.

Universal Communications also sells spots on DD Bangalore/DD Kannada for the prime time feature film on Sunday afternoon. On DD Mumbai and DD10 Sahyadri, Universal markets Marathi feature film on Sunday at 4 pm and Saturday at 3:30 pm; and Marathi comedy show Laurel & Hardy on Sunday at 6:30 pm.

"Universal Communication is also involved in production, distribution, marketing, buying, selling, import and export of feature films, television programmes, video films and other television software," says Universal Communications MD Padmakar Nandekar who was responsible for the success of TV serial Jungle Book on National Network of DD1.

Nandekar was one of the key persons responsible for developing Friday & Saturday night films on DD1. In fact, these programmes make a major contribution to DD Mumbai's revenues, he adds.
