Life OK to air ‘Ghulaam’ from 16 Jan at 9 pm
MUMBAI: Have you ever been to a place where blood is cheaper than water and brides are cheaper than cows? Where women are forbidden? Where children pick up guns before milk bottles? There is one such place – Berahampur where tyranny is the only mercy and the unaware realities of a society still prevails.
Life OK will bring to viewers all the drama from Berahampur in their new mega fiction show ‘Ghulaam’. The show will air from 16 January at 9 pm.
Get ready to experience first time on Indian television a drama series that will bring alive the city of Berahampur – the crime capital of India. A country in itself, another India within India where we see unlimited money, power, force and total debauchery. No father would let his daughter marry anyone from this land. Women in particular have no opinion on matters of the house or town, they are treated as mere commodities.

It is a very challenging role for me as it involved a lot of action along with being true to the diction and the character. This show definitely widens Hindi GEC category by going beyond kitchen politics and creating content for male inclusive.”

We started work six months ago on the show and are happy to finally show our hard work to the audiences as this show has been special.”
