Zee Telugu to launch new fiction show 'Thoorpu Padamara'

The show will air in the early primetime slot

MUMBAI: Zee Telugu, a Telugu General Entertainment Channel of Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd (ZEEL), is all set to launch its new fiction show Thoorpu Padamara on 24 February. The show, which will air in the early primetime slot at 6 PM, features Yamini, Vinay, Jaya Kavi and Pranay in lead roles.

Earlier this month, Superstar Mahesh Babu joined hands with Zee Telugu for a unique concept video that was widely loved and appreciated by the fans of the Prince as well as the ardent viewers of the channel. The video also featured Yamini and Jaya Kavi along with the famed anchor Pradeep Machiraju.

Produced by Palle Prema Sagar Reddy, Thoorpu Padamara chronicles the life of Shruti and Laya. Though they are best friends, Shruti and Laya are as different as chalk and cheese. Laya, played by Yamini, hails from a middle-class family and believes that positivity is the right approach to life. On the other hand, Shruti, played by Jaya Kavi, comes from an opulent background and has a very pessimistic outlook on life. The story unravels when Laya and Shruti are married off to two brothers who also have contrasting personalities. Over time, the show will trace the journey of four contrasting personalities who are joined in an unbreakable bond.

Commenting on her comeback with Zee Telugu, Yamini says: “Thoorpu Padamara is my fourth show with Zee Telugu, and the range of performance styles that I have been able to explore with this channel has been really vast and extraordinary. Which has made me do intensive behind-the-scene homework to show variations from each character that I've taken up. The unique concept of the show and the incredible experience of working with these teams, which feels like a family to me, has been the biggest driving force for me to agree to do this show, and me getting closer to the audience.”

How the two friends navigate through the hardships that befall them and find happiness in their marriages forms the crux of the story.
