NEW  DELHI: Doordarshan’s Main Kuch Bhi Kar Sakti Hoon is all set for its second season after the success of season one, which was telecast last year with 52 episodes.

The new season will commence on DD National from 4 April at 7:30 pm with a curtain raiser of the show. It will be aired every Saturday and Sunday.

The half hour show challenges prevalent social norms on child marriage, early pregnancies, contraceptive use, women’s education, health and empowerment in an effort to change existing mindsets to bring forth a positive change in the society.

According to TAM and IRS data, the serial was watched by over 58 million viewers and PFI received as many as 600,000 phone calls from people across the country, wanting to engage on the issues it had raised, and to share their own experiences.

Season two of Main Kuch Bhi Kar Sakti Hoon focuses on Sneha’s (the protagonist) continuing story, the drama, and dreams as she moves on from Maanavta Hospital to serve her community.  She starts the Manaavta Health Centre and brings people together to aspire for better lives. Preeta, Sneha’s younger sister starts a girls’ football team. These young women use sports to demand for equal opportunities and rights for girls. In the process, Preeta is attacked, but the girls team fights on in spite of family pressure, ridicule and threats of violence and they go on to win the football tournament.

Running parallel, there are dimensions of deceit, violence, corruption and romance all rolled into this entertainment pot-boiler.

The serial is scripted, produced and directed by renowned director Feroz Abbas Khan. He said, “Main Kuch Bhi Kar Sakti Hoon is not just a television series; it is entertainment with social responsibility. Through season one, people realized that there was more to family planning methods than sterilization. And that prenatal care is necessary to ensure healthy pregnancy. People were able to find the voice to protest against the gender based violence and mobilize support. The story of Main Kuch Bhi Kar Sakti Hoon revolves around the inspiring journey of Dr Sneha who represents the young Indian woman of today, emotionally torn between family and society, professional aspirations and personal commitment. Her struggles and triumphs form the core of this memorable soap opera. It will make you laugh, it will make you cry, but it will also make you think. It is a television series like you’ve never seen before.”
