MUMBAI: Ravan?s abduction of Sita highlighted the consequences of crossing the ?Lakshman Rekha? for generations. However, with the talks of gender equality, women?s liberation and financial independence, amongst others, being the topic of global discussion, how relevant is this ?Lakshman Rekha? in today?s time? More so with women being under the radar for every action and questioned at every step? are the boundaries and societal norms imposed valid? Exploring this thought further through the eyes of Kanchan and Vishesh is &TV?s show ? Mitegi Lakshman Rekha starting May 28, 2018 every Mon-Fri at 9.30 PM. Meet Kanchan (Shivani Tomar), a today?s girl who could never be weighed down by boundaries is actually battling her internal dilemmas. Her life takes a rather interesting turn when she meets Vishesh (Rahul Sharma), an ideal man who has a similar outlook towards life and doesn?t give in to the patriarchal mindset of the society. 

Speaking about the show, Head &TV, Vishnu Shankar said, ?Mitegi Lakshman Rekha is an inspiring and bold narrative that questions the many boundaries that have been created for women. The show celebrates the spirit of women like Kanchan who are battling a bitter past yet determined to move forward. The show?s brave concept and take on the larger issue that surrounds the society is what sets the story telling apart.?

Adding further, Producers, Shashi and Sumeet Mittal said, ?Mitegi Lakshman Rekha?s hard-hitting concept touches upon a subject that is need of the hour. We have seen many characters on TV but Kanchan and Vishesh are presented in a completely new light, they are way more progressive and at every step question the various boundaries that are defined by the society. While on one hand Kanchan?s journey will inspire audiences, Vishesh?s character will be a reminder of how supportive and permissive men should ideally be. The exceptional chemistry and bond between Vishesh and Kanchan makes the show an even more promising proposition.?

Speaking about essaying the character of Kanchan, television actress, Shivani Tomar said ?Kanchan?s character is very different from what you have seen me play before. Like her name, she has a heart of gold, family loving and independent in every way. She is determined and believes that no event in life however unplanned or unpleasant it may be, is big enough to alter it permanently. It's our choices that shape our life and personality. I am glad to get this opportunity to essay such a well-crafted and powerful character that will inspire many.?

Adding further Rahul Sharma who essays the character of Vishesh said ?Vishesh is a progressive character who decides what is right or wrong basis his analysis of the situation and not by what the society has defined. I feel a great sense of pride in playing Vishesh, the way his character has been weaved into Kanchan?s life is beautiful. Our society needs more men like Vishesh to stand up for their women and I hope the audience will support us in this exceptional journey with Mitegi Lakshman Rekha.?

Produced by Shashi Sumeet Productions Pvt Ltd, Mitegi Lakshman Rekha will see actors Shivani Tomar and Rahul Sharma come together as the lead protagonists ? Kanchan & Vishesh. Set against the backdrop of Mathura, the show traces the journey of Kanchan and Vishesh who belong to two contrasting worlds but their progressive thinking and similar ideologies bring them together. While Kanchan belongs to a simple family and runs a beauty parlour, Vishesh is a Royal born. He is righteous, progressive and a man of his words.

Along with Shivani Tomar and Rahul Sharma, Mitegi Lakshman Rekha will feature an ensemble cast including veteran actors like Jayashree T, Vaishnavi MacDonald, Amit Thakur, Rahul Lohani and Ravi Gossain amongst many others.
