&TV show ‘Waaris’ takes a 10-year jump

MUMBAI: Hindi GEC &TV’s social drama ‘Waaris’ is set to take a 10-year leap today.

The show, which airs every Monday–Friday at 10 pm, will see both Amba and Manu in a new light. While Farnaz Shetty has been roped in to essay the character of grown-up Manu, Amba’s character, essayed by Aarti Singh, will see a 360-degree change in attitude and the persona.

‘Waaris’ is the story of a mother who has to raise her daughter (Manu) as a boy under adverse circumstances. As time goes by, Amba (Arti Singh) shields Manu at every step and grooms her into a strong young boy.

The leap will bring forth a whole new chapter in the Pawania and Bajwa households. Amba now holds the reigns of the Pawanias and leads them with utmost hatred for the Bajwas in her heart with Jagan as her ally. The mother, who has seen her entire family crumble, takes some ruthless decisions that create a rift between her and Manu.

The leap will also see the introduction of some new characters into the show. Farnaz Shetty is leaving no stone unturned to get into the skin of Manu’s character, which requires major transformation in her looks and mannerisms. Donning the garb of a Punjabi boy, Shetty will sport a Pathani suit complete with a pagdi. Neel Motwani will be seen opposite her as the flamboyant Rajveer.

Arti Singh, who plays Amba, shared, “I am really thrilled with the way Amba’s character will shape up after the leap. As an artist, it gives me a great opportunity to showcase my versatility. Amba will now be seen in a much more powerful role while her relationship with Manu also changes in many ways. Viewers will surely be surprised to see this new side of Amba in ‘Waaris’.”

Shetty added, “It feels great to have been offered to play such a pivotal role in &TV’s ‘Waaris’. This show has a concept that is so beautifully recognised by the viewers that, when I was approached, I immediately said yes. Manu as a character will be seen continuing to live up to her mother’s dream of becoming the Waaris of the Pawanias. Sporting the look of a Panjabi Jatt boy is challenging, but I hope viewers love my look and appreciate the hard work.”
