My character Badal is a simple young boy who has grown up dealing with the issue of caste difference all his life. But this grave reality is actualised when he falls in love with girl named Suman who belongs to a caste that is different from his. I am thankful to &TV and the producers for giving me this opportunity. I have always wished to bring a diversity in my roles, and I hope the viewers find this new character as interesting as I do.”

I am so grateful to &TV and the producers for the same. My character Suman is a young, adventurous and modern girl who has grown up in luxury but believes in staying grounded with all the traditional values imbibed in her. She happens to fall in love with a boy who belongs to a different caste than the one she comes from. Inspite of facing high family resistance, her love stays true and she is not afraid of the consequences they might face. They don’t want to run away from the truth but want to fight to change the mind-set of those around them.”
