&TV looks to present fresh, homegrown narrative with ‘Gudiya Humari Sabhi Pe Bhari’
MUMBAI: Hindi GEC &TV is all set to present a fresh and homegrown narrative with the strong local flavour, ‘Gudiya Humari Sabhi Pe Bhari’, a light-hearted drama alive with simplicity and warmth of its protagonist, Gudiya. Produced by Essel Visions Productions, the show is slated to go on air on 27th August at 9:30 pm.
Set in the backdrop of Madhya Pradesh, the story will take the viewers through the fascinating journey of Gudiya, intertwining the raw appeal of the region in its dialect, depiction, characters, way of life and overall narrative and introduce a new face – Sarika Bahroliya, a native of Gwalior, who will be essaying the role of Gudiya along with well-known television actor Sarrtaj Gill portraying the role of Muddu.
Co-written by eminent writers, Ravi Mahashabde and Samta Sagar, Gudiya Humari Sabhi Pe Bhari is a slice of the life story of Gudiya, the youngest daughter of Radhe (portrayed by Ravi Mahashabde) and Sarla (portrayed by Samta Sagar), having her own unique quips and quirks to life and situations. Most often Gudiya lands up in unusual situations but then her upbeat attitude and unique approach snap her out of it. Gudiya embodies a girl who isn’t restricted by her current reality or any societal norms. Giving us a peek into Gudiya’s ‘all’s well’ world, the show sets a light-hearted and humorous tone while depicting her simple yet unbridled approach towards life.
Commenting on bringing in a fresh concept to &TV’s bouquet of shows, &TV business head Vishnu Shankar said, “Rarely do we come across a character so authentic, relatable and astounding. Gudiya’s perspective is so unique and different from others that it often confounds people around her. But it is this very unique point of view that will amuse viewers and get them to reconsider their own way of thinking. It has been our constant endeavour to present characters that resonate with our viewers and become a part of their daily lives by giving them a moment of joviality and happiness. And Gudiya does just that. Gudiya Humari Sabhi Pe Bhari’s homegrown and light-hearted narrative will make for wholesome family entertainment, connecting the audience on an emotional level besides bringing a smile to everyone’s face.”
Talking about the unique ‘slice of life’ story with a rustic local flavour of Madhya Pradesh, Essel Vision Productions CEO Shariq Patel said, “The story of Gudiya is that of an ordinary girl with an extraordinary outlook towards life. Gudiya isn’t your regular girl; right from her unusual comebacks to her unpretentious demeanour, she is a bag full of surprises. Bringing the authenticity of the local flavour and rustic cultural elements to the storyline we wanted to keep the narrative very simple yet extremely relatable and engaging. We went all-out to find a face among the commoners anchoring traditional ethos, the raw appeal of the region and way of life. For the role of Gudiya and other characters, we have done extensive casting workshops in the grassroots across MP and UP to get talent who fit the roles perfectly. Our show, Gudiya Humari Sabhi Pe Bhari will be a breath of fresh air between the current clutter of heavy dramas on Indian television and we are confident that our Gudiya will strike the right chords with our viewers through her upbeat attitude and atypical approach to life.”
