Zee TV brings to you a colorful tale of two girls who are diametrically different from each other. Premiering on 22 May at 8:30 pm, Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke is a story about two 16 year-olds, Gunjan and Rachna, two complete opposites.
Gunjan is a smart, suave, pampered and outspoken 16 year-old girl who lives in Mumbai and shares a wonderful relationship with her mother. As fate would have it, Gunjan’s life falls apart when her mother passes away. Thereafter her father sends her to her maasi’s (mother’s sister) house in Varanasi. That is where the story of Gunjan and Rachna begins. Where Gunjan has lived in a close knit, nuclear family, Rachna is a shy and simple girl living in a joint family and is very dependent on her mum, Shail.
The show explores both the teenagers’ and Shails’s journey in this crucial phase. How will Gunjan cope moving to Varanasi after her mother’s death? Will she be able to adjust in Shail’s middle class household? Will Shail be a responsible parent to both girls? The story tries to encapsulate all these fine nuances of life beautifully and give the audience a taste of their growing up years.
The Fiction Head of Zee TV, Mr. Sukesh Motwani said:
“Sapne Suhane Ladakpan ke is all about celebrating adolescence. The teenage years mark the real beginning of a person’s blossoming youth and the events that occur in one’s life in this period leave permanent imprints affecting his/her personality. The teenage years are when one faces their first crushes, loves, despair of love, mistakes, joys of friendship, togetherness, heartbreaks, emotional turmoil, rebellious feelings etc. The show is full of hope, aspirations, wish, longing, desire and yearning. The idea was to enrich the lives of the viewers through an endearing content, which will remind them of their carefree wonder years.”
Neelima Bajpai the producer of ‘Sapne Suhane Ladakpan ke’ said,
“We’ve made the show look youthful and appealing. We have also given Gunjan a very youthful and trendy look. She’s a typical big city girl who is in tune with the latest trends in clothes, accessories and wears all modern attires, junk jewellery like toe rings, funky neck pieces, stylish bangles, carries chic bags and has a huge collection of shoes. She is the epitome of modern and liberated urban girl who is uninhibited in her styling & lives life on her own terms. Since Rachna comes from a conservative family in Varanasi with a strict father. She wears ill-fitting clothes, wears an old HMT watch, oils and braids her hair and has only one pair of slippers and would pass off in a crowd as any other ordinary girl. It was very important to show the contrast between the two girls, both by their looks and nature. Even when it came to their homes in Mumbai and Varanasi, we used bright colours for the girl’s rooms. Gunjan’s room is more hip and chic, while Rachna’s room is simple yet pretty.”
Rupal Tyagi, who plays Gunjan on the new show, was very excited for her role! The young actress said:
“I’m loving every moment shooting for ‘Sapne Suhane Ladakpan ke’. The character of Gunjan is so like me. Like Gunjan, I’m also a typical Mumbaiyaa girl who lives life on her own terms and is full of life. I’m so lucky and fortunate that Zee TV has selected me as one of the lead protagonist in the show.”
Also excited for the start of the show, Mahimla, who plays Rachna on the new show, said:
“Though I have done shows in the past, I feel this show is going to be my launch pad. It’s an honour to be associated with Zee TV as I love watching all Zee TV shows like, DID, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, Hitler Didi and Mrs. Kaushik Ki Paanch Bahuein. We had fun shooting for the show in Varanasi and Rupal has already become a good friend. I’m sure that the viewers will like our love-hate relationship.”
