MUMBAI: Seems like the short story format is working well for Zee. The channel will be debuting the 15th series of Kabhie-Kabhie, the weekly three part short story series on the channel.
The series of three episodes, Mamata will start airing on 15 January at 8 pm.
Starring Varsha Usgaonkar, Vaishnavi and Sooraj Thapar, Mamata is the story of a divorcee mother torn between career and motherhood.
According to a company release, Mamata is the story of Meghana (Varsha Usgaonkar), a divorcee mother who is trying to raise her son Rahul single-handedly. Unable to devote attention to both her son and her career, she hires a nanny Chandani (Vaishnavi). Unknown to Meghana, Chandani hails from a well off family who has volunteered to take care of the child, unable to have one of her own.
So while Meghana works towards building a career, her son is taken care of. Meanwhile, she develops an emotional bond with her boss Varun (Sooraj Thapar) after he helps her to win the custody of her son.
On the other hand, Chandani and her husband offer to adopt Rahul, an offer that is is turned down by Meghana, much to the Rahul's disapproval. The series' climax revolves around whether Meghana finally gives up Rahul to Chandani or decides to look after him herself.
Zee officials inform that although the show isn't one of the channel top rankers, it has helped consolidate its position in weekend viewership.
