A Doll plays the role of Mother on the show – Meri Gudiya
Star Bharat is all set to present ‘Meri Gudiya’ a unique show where for the first time on Hindi Television you will see a doll playing the role of a mother. Produced by Writer Galaxy Film Productions and starring the talented Gaurav S Bajaj and the popular Aalisha Panwar in lead roles. ‘Meri Gudiya’s’ inimitable concept makes it different than any other TV shows. Meri Gudiya also signifies homecoming for actor Gaurav S Bajaj, who will be seen on the small screen after a long hiatus alongside Aalisha Panwar, Vidisha Srivastava and the other cast members.
Meri Gudiya showcases the unconditional love of a mother for her daughter. The story revolves around the Gujral family who live in Shimla. Raghvendra Gujral (Gaurav S Bajaj) is a successful businessman who runs his ancestral business of coffee plantations, his wife Madhuri Gujral (Aalisha Panwar) who is an extremely protective mother and their 4-year-old daughter Avi (Jenisha). Avi is at the centre of Madhuri's universe and Avi cannot imagine her life without Madhuri. Madhuri meets with an accident and Avi is left alone in a treacherous situation. Now, Avi’s only companion is a doll that was gifted to her by her mother.
Star Bharat Channel Spokesperson said, “Star Bharat has always been at the forefront of creating content that breaks the clutter and gives viewers a chance to experience different stories. With the launch of Meri Gudiya, we want our audiences to witness the undying affection and concern of a mother for her daughter. The show is a perfect combination of gripping storytelling and emotional relationships that will keep the viewer engaged.”
Anirudh Pathak, the show’s producer, said, “Audience has seen many shows on the mother – daughter bond but the unique concept of the show ‘Meri Gudiya’ revolves around a doll depicting the role of a mother. It’s a show that will portray the eternal bond a mother shares with her child even after her death. Meri Gudiya is a story layered with emotions and nurtured with love and is different from the kind of shows that are being aired on television.”
Gaurav S Bajaj said, “I will be seen essaying the character of a father for the first time. My character is different from all the other characters I have played in my previous shows. As I have never played a father on screen, this role comes as a challenge to me. I can personally relate to the same as I am soon to become a father in real life. This role allows me to experience a gamut of emotions that a husband and a father go through.”
Aalisha Panwar said, “Playing a young mother on -screen was surely a first, in fact I am glad to play Madhuri (at a young age of 23) as it gives me the chance to explore my acting abilities and display a variety of emotions on-screen. The show portrays a mother’s undying love to protect her daughter despite her death.”
The makers of the show have left no stone unturned to find the perfect doll for the show as it plays a very important part in the show. Innumerable options were scouted for (sought) before the final doll was created.
The star cast of Meri Gudiya boasts of a very strong ensemble cast which includes legendary actors like Nishigandha Wad, Rahul Singh, Samwedna Suwalka and Vidisha Srivastav amongst many others.
